A Transformative Era in Energy Research and Innovation: Blue Sky, Renewable Energy to Energy Storage
Carbon-neutral shipping: Advances in sustainable, methanol-based fuels.
Several global industries, including chemical manufacturing, aviation, and marine shipping continue to contribute significantly to global carbon emissions. Shipping, for instance, contributes 3% to annual global emissions and along with these other industries remains hard to “defossilize”. But a recent
Innovative new designs could help the aviation industry get to net-zero by making planes more compatible with renewable energy sources.
A long-term issue for the airline industry is the need to tackle their fossil emissions, which contribute to >2% of global emissions. How do we get this industry to net zero, and is it even possible? The conventional “tube and wing”
