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.
Current electric car owners tend to charge their cars at night. If that trend continues, it could create a big stress on the grid.
Or does “dematerialization” simply swap stubborn technological problems for even more intractable social ones?
Building on the phenomenon that creates static electricity, researchers propose a design that generates twice the power per unit volume as previously reported systems
The cost of green energy technologies is plummeting, and transitioning to them quickly could be much cheaper than doing it slowly, researchers say
We take a look at the evidence behind the Inflation Reduction Act big economic bet.
Looking for a lithium alternative, researchers combined chitin and zinc to create a low-cost, long-lived battery with a smaller environmental footprint.
Engineers devise a resin to recycle wind turbine blades into countertops, diapers, and even gummy bears
The world will produce over 40 million tonnes of turbine blade waste by 2050. A new resin makes it easier to turn them into valuable products.
Lightweight artificial leaf that works just as well as natural ones could float on ponds and seas to make clean fuel
A detailed new study demonstrates how the region’s energy future could be so much greener than current plans assume—with only a modest additional cost
Lab-on-a-chip reveals how chemical reactions with the gas unfold in rocks at very high time and scale resolutions
