Advancements in New Hybrid Energy Systems Could Be Ideal For Shifting Into Clean Energy

Last week, Joule published a paper saying that the future of new hybrid systems could be ideal in transitioning into clean energy use.
According to the researchers from the 3 applied energy laboratories, namely the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the National Energy Technology Laboratory, and Idaho National Laboratory from the Department of Energy in the US wrote a paper about the possible integration of these systems.
They mention that new ideas can influence the simultaneous use of different energy generators, including fossil, nuclear, and renewable, by capturing carbon. As a result, heat, mobility, power, and other …

Microplastic in the Wind Causes Pollution

Because plastic found in the ocean does not chemically break down, it breaks up into small pieces. As a result, microplastics are formed and have become an alarming environmental issue. Weizmann Institute of Science discovered this from their recent study about the problem with microplastics.
Microplastics are particles that have sizes smaller than 5 mm across. They are moved into the atmosphere and brought to various parts of the ocean because of the wind. Studies show that even the smallest pieces can be suspended in the air for hours or days. Therefore, these pieces can harm the environment by disrupting the food chain and …

Measures for Climate Change Are Included in Coronavirus Relief Deal

President Donald Trump signed the coronavirus relief deal covering the legislation to have funds included for regulating greenhouse gases that affect the climate and technologies for clean, clean energy. This action made everyone hopeful for the climate goals of President-elect Joe Biden.
This bill is included in the Omnibus Appropriations Bill, which also covers the coronavirus relief deal allowing $35 billion to be spent on wind, solar, and other clean energy sources in the next 5 years.
Moreover, it also has new policies to phase out hydrofluorocarbon, which is a coolant that causes global warming and is found in air …

Reaching Climate and Sustainability Goals through Renewables

Because of the increasing pressure on the issue of climate change, developing renewable energy has become urgent. A recent study serves as a guide in joining the goals of conserving and sustaining ecology and low-carbon targets.
The journal. Frontiers in Sustainability from the University of California, Davis, and John Hopkins University published this study. The goal is to assist decision-makers in preventing an unwanted environmental outcome from developing renewable energy.
According to Sarah Jordaan, one of the leading authors of the study and an assistant professor at John Hopkins University’s School of Advanced …
