How to Accelerate the Energy Transition Using Digital Technologies

Which roles can digital technologies play in the transformation of our energy system towards using 100% renewable energy? In the latest "Energy Transition – The Future is Networked" Greenbook, RESET.org has researched solutions and interviewed experts. Here are the results.

A Bright Future? How the Next Generation of Solar is Overcoming its Many Challenges

Solar power is one of the best-known sources of renewable energy, but it is still only responsible for 3 percent of global electricity. What's keeping it back and how can it further develop?

Tubesolar: Can Tubular Solar Panels Crack the Agrovoltaic Dilemma?

The combination of solar power generation and agriculture - agrovoltaics - comes with benefits and problems. Can a new design generate electricity and increase crop yields?

Renewable Energy – Environmentally Friendly and Low Cost Energy from Inexhaustible Sources

Energy resources exist in different forms - some exist as stocks and are exhaustible, others exist as flows and are inexhaustible. The effects of climate change, and the impact that greenhouse gas emissions have on the atmosphere, are ushering in a reassessment of where our energy supply comes from and, more importantly, how sustainable it is.

Power to the People: How Can Civic Tech Help Create a Local Energy Revolution?

Civic technology helps communities put power into their own hands - quite literally. New open source technologies can provide powerful tools to those looking to set up local renewable energy grids.

Village Data Analytics: Satellites Help Bring Solar Power to Rural Communities

Many rural off-grid communities would benefit hugely from being hooked up to a solar power system. But which areas are most suitable for solar power installation? And which are most in need? A new earth observation software is using artificial intelligence and satellite imagery to bring power to people more accurately, efficiently and faster than before.
