A new report supports the idea that underground mines can be transformed into energy storage facilities, adding the possibility of on-demand, carbon-free power to energy grids.
Ocean thermal energy conversion could power the world’s tropical islands, if it ever gets out of the “innovation valley of death.”
Un nuevo estudio muestra que, en los lugares correctos, las bombas de calor pueden ayudar a los propietarios a reducir las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero, ahorrar en costos de calefacción y aire acondicionado, y promover la salud pública.
A new study shows that in the right places, heat pumps can help homeowners lower greenhouse gas emissions, save on heating and cooling costs, and promote public health.
A versatile suite of computational models, already used to forecast magnetic storms and potential power grid and telecommunications disruptions, is preparing to welcome a larger group of users.
As lawmakers debate planned power outages as a Band-Aid to the nation’s wildfire problem, science hangs in the balance.
A retrospective cohort analysis of anomalies on the Czech power grid shows they are more common during enhanced geomagnetic activity, the first time such impacts have been identified outside the USA.
A new framework assesses the economic impact of space weather on power distribution networks and the supply of electricity.
Very low frequency radio, a well-proven tool for solar-terrestrial studies, proves to be adept at detecting the stresses that space weather imposes on the transformers at the heart of power grids.
A new model of geomagnetically induced currents revisits how space weather damaged a New Zealand grid transformer in 2001, and shows how much worse it could be in a space weather superstorm.
