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.
Researchers found that just one cubic meter of seawater has the same cooling energy as a solar farm the size of 68 football fields—or 21 wind turbines.
Agrivoltaics could also provide jobs and boost rural livelihoods, while cutting carbon emissions
Researchers believe they found a way to resolve the tradeoff between too many different carbon prices and the need for big cash transfers between countries
Pretty well overall. A new study shows that the impact climate change will have on the supply of wind, hydro, solar, and other renewable energy sources is modest.
Attributing water consumption and greenhouse gas emissions to countries rather than industrial sectors is a leading example of how the supply chain world warps geography.
When Ecuador asked the world for $3.6 billion to not drill for oil, the world balked. But in terms of reining in carbon, Ecuador may be on to something.
Putting solar farms on water has benefits, but coupling them with hydropower amps them up and could provide almost half of the world's electricity.
Bond markets are beginning to unlock climate finance
The material that built the modern world is due for an upgrade. What if we could transform cement from a climate wrecker
into a carbon sponge?
by allowing people to buy and sell energy in small increments from, and to, their neighbors
