Energy & Decarbonization Stories
Capping and/or mitigating global warming requires a rapid shift to low-carbon socio-economic systems. From stories about scaling up renewable energy to pioneering work in solar fuels to carbon capture and storage technologies, Anthropocene magazine aims to be a leading voice in the conversation about this great transition.
In a first-of-its-kind study, researchers calculated how shovel-ready waste-handling technologies could quickly hit the brakes on global warming.
Financial headwinds could be a passing storm or a long-term headache for the carbon-free energy source.
The discovery involved air-zapping lasers that made fertilizer almost 40 times more efficiently than conventional methods.
And that was the researchers’ more conservative estimate.
We may be overestimating the emissions savings from EVs and under-utilizing them to reap benefits, a new study finds.
Simple stories pack a persuasive punch, but they might be stifling our climate creativity
Waste heat from over 5,000 underground parking lots in Berlin could meet the demand of of 14,660 average German households, scientists found, while helping improve groundwater quality and biodiversity
BatteryBatteries don't have to be small or even portable. Here are five ambitious technologies that store energy in the rocks, water, and air all around us.
Researchers trained a deep learning model to make decisions based on widely available open-source building images
By encasing bacteria in a tough but porous coating, researchers have made paint that could be used to capture carbon and produce biofuels
