Coldbox Store Reduces Food Waste in Nigeria

Coldbox Store Reduces Food Waste in Nigeria

The Nigerian solar-powered system aims to reduce food waste and its climate footprint by reducing post-food harvest losses Food waste is a significant driver in climate change, as 6% of all global greenhouse emissions come from the production of food that is never eaten. This creates a vicious cycle of more extreme climate, which makes food production more difficult and exacerbates poverty, malnutrition and inequality across society.

Study on New Flexible Solar Energy Systems for Offshore Application

Study on New Flexible Solar Energy Systems for Offshore Application

A consortium has launched a study on new, floating flexible solar energy systems. The system, consisting of flexible floating units with flexible solar panels mounted on them, has been installed over recent days close to Rotterdam. The pilot, which will run until summer 2022, is the first step in the creation of economically viable offshore photovoltaic systems.

Glasgow to be Home to First-of-a-Kind Hydrogen Storage Project

A trailblazing hydrogen storage project near Glasgow has been backed by nearly £10 million in UK government funding. The cash boost will see the Whitelee green hydrogen project develop the UK's largest electrolyser, a system which converts water into hydrogen gas as a way to store energy. It will be located alongside ScottishPower's Whitelee Windfarm, the largest of its kind in the UK, and will produce and store hydrogen to supply local transport providers with zero-carbon fuel.
