Formed when metallic elements combine with nitrogen, nitrides can possess unique properties with potential applications spanning from semiconductors to industrial coatings.Wenhao Sun, lead author of the paper and staff scientist at LBNL, likened materials discovery to the world exploration of bygone days.An interactive version of the map shows stable ternary nitrides highlighted in blue, indicating that they are good candidates for experimentation.As one of 46 EFRCs, CNGMD is tasked with discovering new materials for use in energy research."If you only do materials design with stable materials," Sun said, "your choices are limited."Our EFRC team set out to include metastable compounds into materials design," added Tumas.
Groundbreaking Study Maps Out Paths to New Nitride MaterialsFormed by elements combining with nitrogen, nitrides can possess unique properties with potential applications from semiconductors to industrial coatings.But before nitrides can be put to use, they first must be discovered - and the odds of finding them in nature are slim.Now, your chances of discovering new nitrides just got better with a groundbreaking Nature Materials study led by Berkeley Lab in close collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and a number of other institutions."For ancient explorers, sailing into the unknown was a very risky endeavor, and in the same way, exploration of new chemical spaces can also be risky," explained Wenhao Sun, lead author of the paper and staff scientist at Berkeley Lab."If you don't find a new material where you are looking, it can be a big waste of time and effort.
Rivian has only showed off early versions of its R1S SUV and R1T pickup, but the company has not been shy about dishing deets regarding what's under the hood.We already know its battery pack is pretty darn advanced, and its tech is clearly appealing enough to pull in some major investors like Ford and Amazon.Now, we have an idea of what Rivian wants to do with its batteries once they're no longer usable in its vehicles.Rivian announced this week that it has teamed up with the Honnold Foundation, which funds solar power initiatives, for a future project that will use Rivian's "second-life" batteries, also known as a used EV battery that's already done its time in an electric vehicle.The project will see these batteries as gateways to energy independence and renewable power generation, and it'll kick off in Adjuntas, Puerto Rico.Using the 135-kilowatt-hour battery packs from its development vehicles, Rivian will take these batteries and move them into small modules that can collect power from solar panels or other sources, reducing reliance on the grid.
The U.S. Department of Energy announced that it will invest $32 million over the next four years to accelerate the design of new materials through use of supercomputers.Seven projects will be supported, three led by teams at DOE National Laboratories and four by Universities.The teams are led by Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) as well as the University of Illinois, the Pennsylvania State University, the University of Texas and the University of Southern California.These projects will develop widely applicable open source software utilizing DOE's current leadership class and future exascale computing facilities.The goal is to provide the software platforms and data for the design of new functional materials with a broad range of applications, including alternative and renewable energy, electronics, data storage and materials for quantum information science.The new awards are part of DOE's Computational Materials Sciences (CMS) program, begun in 2015 to reflect the enormous recent growth in computing power and the increasing capability of high-performance computers to model and simulate the behavior of matter at the atomic and molecular scales.
Carbon-neutral fuels are crucial for making aviation and maritime transport sustainable.ETH researchers have developed a solar plant to produce synthetic liquid fuels that release as much CO2 during their combustion as previously extracted from the air for their production.These drop-in fuels are ready for use in the existing global transport infrastructure.Aldo Steinfeld, Professor of Renewable Energy Carriers at ETH Zurich, and his research group developed the technology."The thermochemical process utilises the entire solar spectrum and proceeds at high temperatures, enabling fast reactions and high efficiency."It produces around one decilitre of fuel per day.

On Wednesday, a plan to put hydrogen fuel cell-powered ferries in US waters moved forward as startup Golden Gate Zero Emission Marine (GGZEM) announced a partnership with Switch Maritime, an impact investment fund that will finance and operate a fleet of such vessels.California’s cap-and-trade dollars are building a hydrogen fuel cell boatGGZEM received a $3 million grant from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) last November to build a 70-foot, 84-passenger, hydrogen fuel cell-powered boat.Named the Water-Go-Round, the vessel will be used to take passengers across the San Francisco Bay.The ferry, which is currently under construction in Alameda, California, is expected to be complete in September.After its completion, it will undergo three months of testing so researchers can gather data on its performance.
They set up shop in an abandoned mill on the edge of town, made a plan to recycle the computers when they conked out, and contracted with a nearby dam for cheap renewable power.Sure, it might be a warehouse full of energy-intensive computers and cooling systems, designed to churn out digital money day and night.In a paper published Wednesday in the journal Joule, his team takes a closer look at the energy consumption of bitcoin mining, based on where miners are located and the types of machines they are using.“The question is how to prevent it, and that’s up to local regulators.”Bitcoin mining, a process called “proof-of-work,” involves a global network of machines racing to solve complex math.When it comes to measuring energy use, the global nature of that activity makes it difficult to study; it’s hard to know what kinds of machines are running, where they’re located, and the fuel used to supply the electricity.
Theresa May has announced her plans for the UK to produce net zero greenhouse emissions by 2050, overturning the previous pledge of the Climate Change Act 2008, to slash them by 80 per cent by the same year.May has said the new plan will be reviewed in five years and in the interim, the government will look to a youth steering group to advise them, making this look all the more like a pandering publicity stunt to gain favour given that she's drawn the ire of a large majority of the public during her time at Downing Street.The UK is the first G7 country to make such a promise, most likely because it's fairly drastic for such a short timeline, with Labour's Rebecca Long-Bailey saying that while it's "welcome in theory" the reality of the situation is another matter entirely."In practice it comes from a Conservative government that is off track to meet existing climate targets, that has no plans for legislation or investment needed to cut emissions, and that has dismantled the UK renewable energy sector while pushing fracking."The government is a bit like a marathon runner with the wrong shoes, the wrong diet and no training expecting to break the world record; it looks less like ambition and more like delusion."Chancellor Philip Hammond suggests that implementing the necessary changes needed to meet the overly ambitious target could cost int he region of £1 trillion, which of course, isn't going to materialise out of thin air.
A national consortium has been awarded additional funding to cement the UK's position as a global leader in offshore renewable energy (ORE) innovation and research.The Supergen ORE hub was created in July 2018 to bring together a network of academic, industrial and policy stakeholders to champion and maintain the UK's wave, tidal and offshore wind expertise.It was initially awarded £5million by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), and has now received an additional £4million in EPSRC funding to expand the support it offers researchers working across the country.It includes academics from the University of Aberdeen, University of Edinburgh, University of Exeter, University of Hull, University of Manchester, University of Oxford, University of Southampton, University of Strathclyde, and the University of Warwick.It is also working with an advisory board, made up of industry leaders, policy makers and other key stakeholders, to ensure it is addressing the key challenges faced by companies in the ORE sector.Through that, it aims to build a collaborative approach that can address any technical, environmental and interdisciplinary challenges, which require a coordinated response at a national and regional level.

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 11, 2019 - Sustainable communities supplied by local renewable energy production are beginning to be established in the U.S. By using energy-efficient buildings and distributing means of energy generation, such as solar panels, throughout buildings in these districts, the communities manage to produce enough energy for their local needs -- achieving a yearly net zero energy (NZE) balance.For example, a spike in energy production on a sunny day could cause voltage violations that might exceed appliance allowable standards.To enable expansion of NZE districts to create more sustainable urban areas, researchers have integrated power grid considerations into the model of a newly planned NZE district and examined energy fluctuations at 15-minute intervals."We had a unique partnership between electric utility suppliers, building developers, landowners and other stakeholders, which enabled us to look at this from a holistic perspective and come up with a solution that is better for everyone at a lower total cost," said Bri-Mathias Hodge, who led the study at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Colorado.Centralized planning provides a means to proactively ensure a reliable service of electricity to the districts.One way to achieve central management could be through utility ownership or operation of distributed devices, such as solar power systems and batteries.
Sustainability of the environment requires changes in the current way of life and introduction of new, more sustainable solutions in our everyday consumption.The TalTech Power Electronics Research Group led by Researcher-Professor Dmitri Vinnikov has been working on improvement of the efficiency of alternative energy generation units for over decade."In the early years of the alternative energy deployment, it was outrageously expensive for an ordinary consumer, but the developments in recent years, the triumph of materials technology and the efforts of power electronics engineers have made the price much more affordable for the consumers," Professor Vinnikov says.The environmental and natural factors that affect the performance of such systems most are (apart from Nordic sunlight) deposition of dirt (snow, soil, leaves) on PV module surfaces and long shadows created by lower sun angle affect."In order to convert energy, which comes from the renewable energy sources, into electricity for the consumers, a grid converter must be used, which transforms the output of the renewable energy source into a current suitable for home appliances.The power electronics researchers of Tallinn University of Technology have taken a step further to solve this problem - they have developed a hybrid technology Optiverter?
In an effort to reduce the time your herbs and veggies spend being carted around after being picked, Ocado is investing a whole chunk of cash into sustainable vertical farms.Some of that money has been spent on buying a 58 per cent stake in Jones Food, a company that uses commercial hydroponics to grow produce in a controlled environment on stacked trays - hence, vertical farming.Jones Food Scunthorpe farm is powered by renewable energy, recycles all of its water, and doesn't use pesticides."We believe that our investments today in vertical farming will allow us to address fundamental consumer concerns on freshness and sustainability, and build on new technologies that will revolutionise the way customers access fresh produce," said Ocado's chief executive Tim Steiner."Our hope ultimately is to co-locate vertical farms within or next to our [distribution centres] and Ocado Zoom’s micro-fulfilment centres so that we can offer the very freshest and most sustainable produce that could be delivered to a customer’s kitchen within an hour of it being picked,” he added.Ocado invested the rest of the £17m in Dutch company Priva, that specialises in climate control technology, and in a US vertical farm business.
Output of electricity from renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power generation depends on changing weather conditions and wind velocity and therefore fluctuates readily.Incorporating larger amounts of renewable energy into the grid interferes with the balancing act that constitutes the adjusting of supply to meet demand.Energy storage systems with such regulation capabilities have been garnering attention as a means of dealing with this issue.The Energy Storage for Renewables Integration market was valued at xx Million US$ in 2018 and is projected to reach xx Million US$ by 2025, at a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period.In this study, 2018 has been considered as the base year and 2019 to 2025 as the forecast period to estimate the market size for Energy Storage for Renewables Integration.Report Sample includes:- Table of Contents- List of Tables & Figures- Charts- Research MethodologyGet FREE Sample of this Report at https://www.24marketreports.com/report-sample/global-energy-storage-for-renewables-integration-2025-922 This report presents the worldwide Energy Storage for Renewables Integration market size (value, production and consumption), splits the breakdown (data status 2014-2019 and forecast to 2025), by manufacturers, region, type and application.This study also analyzes the market status, market share, growth rate, future trends, market drivers, opportunities and challenges, risks and entry barriers, sales channels, distributors and Porter's Five Forces Analysis.The following manufacturers are covered in this report:ABBEast Penn ManufacturingLG ChemRobert BoschBeacon PowerBYDExide TechnologiesGeneral ElectricSamsung SDIKokamFluence EnergyLockheed Martin EnergyEos Energy StorageCon Edison SolutionsHitachiSMA Solar TechnologyNGKNECEnergy Storage for Renewables Integration Breakdown Data by Type Li-ion BatteryLead Acid BatteryOthersEnergy Storage for Renewables Integration Breakdown Data by Application Multiple Renewable Energy ResourcesSingle Renewable Energy ResourceEnergy Storage for Renewables Integration Production by Region United StatesEuropeChinaJapanOther RegionsThe study objectives are: To analyze and research the global Energy Storage for Renewables Integration status and future forecast?involving, production, revenue, consumption, historical and forecast.To present the key Energy Storage for Renewables Integration manufacturers, production, revenue, market share, and recent development.To split the breakdown data by regions, type, manufacturers and applications.To analyze the global and key regions market potential and advantage, opportunity and challenge, restraints and risks.To identify significant trends, drivers, influence factors in global and regions.To analyze competitive developments such as expansions, agreements, new product launches, and acquisitions in the market.In this study, the years considered to estimate the market size of Energy Storage for Renewables Integration : History Year: 2014 - 2018Base Year: 2018Estimated Year: 2019Forecast Year: 2019 - 2025This report includes the estimation of market size for value (million USD) and volume (K Units).
The government has followed up on its promise of a new scheme after ending the solar panel feed-in-tariff system in April.800,000 homes had free solar panels installed as part of feed-in-tariff, with the number of new installations falling by 94 per cent once the government axed subsidies a couple of months ago.The new scheme will see homeowners get paid for any surplus electricity generated by renewable energy sources by their suppliers.“The new smart export guarantee will ensure households that choose to become green energy generators will be guaranteed a payment for electricity supplied to the grid,” said Chris Skidmore, minister of energy and clean growth."If households with panels and batteries can store electricity and sell it back to the grid when it is most needed we could see some homes with negative power bills,” said Greg Jackson, CEO of energy supplier Octopus.To be eligible for the scheme, your house will need to have the capacity to produce up to 5 megawatts of renewable energy that's tracked by a smart meter.
