Climate change could be a key issue in 2021 Nova Scotia provincial election

"...All three of the main parties have talked about climate change and outlined their plans and promises to help the environment. On Tuesday, Liberal Leader Iain Rankin highlighted his party's goals for tackling climate change. “The centrepiece of our platform is our commitment to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 53 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030,” he said, noting that it's the most ambitious target in the country..."

Energy Storage, Key to Making Renewable Energy and Green Infrastructure Viable, is Expensive

"...Big infrastructure spending plans in both Canada, the United States, and the European Union, all place a lot of emphasis on renewable energy displacing coal, gas and petroleum burning generating stations and motor vehicles. Yet little attention is given to the one vital element that makes all these ‘green’ energy transition plans viable: practical and affordable energy storage. Solar and wind power are not available at all times, so they must be stored in a buffer to allow for use at night or when there is little wind..."

Exclusive: To decarbonise hydrogen power, get over the rainbow

"...Within the past year, public and private sector leaders worldwide have made ambitious plans to combat climate change. Within these plans, hydrogen often plays a critical role, and the source of this hydrogen energy has come under increasing interest and scrutiny. The challenge is, the vast majority of hydrogen is manufactured from fossil-fuel sources, and a simple colour association is being used in the absence of a standard for distinguishing the carbon intensity of hydrogen..."

Sink or swim: Can island states survive the climate crisis?

"...Most research indicates that low-lying atoll islands, predominantly in the Pacific Ocean such as the Marshall Islands and Kiribati, risk being submerged by the end of the century, but there are indications that some islands will become uninhabitable long before that happens: low-lying islands are likely to struggle with coastal erosion, reduced freshwater quality and availability due to saltwater inundation of freshwater aquifers. This means that small islands nations could find themselves in an almost unimaginable situation, in which they run out of fresh water long before they run out of land..."

Orbital's O2 floating turbine starts exporting clean power to the grid

"...Following the official launch of "the world's most powerful tidal turbine" in April, Orbital Marine Power has announced that the O2 has started grid-connected power generation at the European Marine Energy Centre in Orkney. After being manufactured in Dundee, Scotland, the floating turbine was towed up to Orkney in June, before being anchored in the fast-moving waters of the Fall of Warness. Orbital's first commercial turbine is now connected to the local onshore electricity network by an undersea cable, and has begun operation..."

Energy Dome uses carbon dioxide as a grid-scale battery

"...Importantly, these CO2 batteries can operate very quickly, absorbing and releasing energy nearly instantly in certain configurations. This means they'll be useful for smoothing out demand spikes – typically a lithium speciality – as well as for buffering between renewable generation and demand curves, and building multi-day reserve storage that can kick in to stabilize the grid when bad weather knocks generation on the head for a few days. Round trip efficiency is over 75 percent, says the company, and while that does mean you're throwing some energy away, this sector will likely play out almost entirely based on economics..."

Disruptive iron-air grid-scale battery is 10% the cost of lithium

"...Boston's Form Energy is building a commercial-scale pilot of a remarkable new grid-scale battery project that could make a huge contribution to long-term energy storage as the world moves away from fossil fuels. These simple iron-air batteries store up to 100 hours of energy at a tenth the cost of a lithium battery farm. The big picture here is of course renewable energy..."
