We have reported on several innovations, new processes, subsidies and business strategies all aimed at reversing global warming or at least capping temperature rise at 1.5° – 2°C compared to the pre-industrial age.
With the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG) having committed to reducing 50% of its CO2 emissions by 2050, and the European Union’s Green Deal to become carbon neutral in the same period, the aviation industry is facing severe challenges to fulfil these ambitious goals.
Following our post on government initiatives of selected countries with regards to renewable energy subsidies, targets and ambitions, we have researched the private sector to obtain a more in-depth look into the big players and their plans for the renewable revolution.
The International Energy Association’s (IEA) latest publication, “Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP) 2020”, is a 400-page report on energy technologies, the transition to net-zero emissions, and international climate goals. Here, we will break it down to the most essential information, saving you the time of reading the entire report.
While bare eyes can readily identify today’s central power plants due to their electrical structure, cables and transformers, we expect the future to bring changes to the general power generation infrastructure. Large generation sites of diversified energy sources give, often inadvertently, a certain distinction to their surrounding landscape. Yet, a technology leap involving solar PV, energy storage and the integration of AI will have an impact on the power generation layout in the near future.
