The 1.5-degree target is unattainable without a comprehensive energy transformation. But how can it succeed? What digital solutions are already available and where are innovations needed? How can we accelerate the transformation and overcome the hurdles of building a climate-neutral energy system?
We dive deep into the issue and present digital, innovative solutions.
There are many potential ways to store surplus renewable energy, but hydrogen is emerging as one of the most promising. New advances are making it cleaner and more practical.
Is it possible for heavily industrialized nations to create energy security with renewable power alone? Yes, it is! However, one of the most important factors in achieving this is efficient storage technologies.
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?
Grassroots activism, favourable regulations, financial incentives, and good, old-fashioned peer pressure are key to the energy transition.
The combination of solar power generation and agriculture - agrovoltaics - comes with benefits and problems. Can a new design generate electricity and increase crop yields?
Hydropower is one of humanity's oldest forms of energy, but there are still vast areas of the sector left unexplored.
How can we successfully transform our energy system towards climate neutrality? For Severin Beucker, co-founder of the Borderstep Institute, the most important prerequisites are efficient and intelligent grids and consumers.
What if the heat from, say, server farms or subway tunnels can be used to warm homes? Waste heat recovery technologies seek to close the energy loop.
