A Flexible, Seaweed Like Generator

A Flexible, Seaweed Like Generator

Ocean waves can be powerful, containing enough energy to push around sand, pebbles and even boulders during storms. These waves, as well as smaller, more gentle ones, could be tapped as a source of renewable energy. Now, researchers have developed flexible power generators that mimic the way seaweed sways to efficiently convert surface and underwater waves into electricity to power marine-based devices.

NGK Insulators to Convert to Renewable Energy by 2026

NGK Insulators to Convert to Renewable Energy by 2026

NGK Insulators plans that all electricity used at its overseas bases will be converted to renewable energy sources by the fiscal year ending March 31, 2026. This measure forecasts that approximately 60% of all electricity used by the NGK Group as of the end of fiscal 2025 will derive from renewable energy sources, helping to cut about 330,000 tons of CO2 annually.

Pilot Project for Innovative PV Solutions From Heliatek

Pilot Project for Innovative PV Solutions From Heliatek

Avoiding CO2 emissions wherever possible - GREEN also pursues this goal for managed portfolio properties of GARBE. The system can extend the lifespan and utilisation cycles of the properties and enhance the attractiveness of the locations long-term. Moreover, it can help avoid demolition, which is a waste of energy. If the installation of a conventional roof-mounted photovoltaic system is not possible on roofs due to insufficient static or structural stability, older buildings may be retrofitted in the future by mounting organic photovoltaic films laterally on their façades.

Rethinking Smart Cities: Setbacks and How to Move Forward

Rethinking Smart Cities: Setbacks and How to Move Forward

Ideas have moved on from a smart city being a dystopian world of sensors everywhere and people control by artificial intelligence - smart cities are primarily about progressing to water, food, and power independence and minimal transport. How to make smart cities in both deserts and the sea must be figured out.

Quiet, Solar-Powered Bikes an Effective Tool Against Poaching

Quiet, Solar-Powered Bikes an Effective Tool Against Poaching

For years, poaching has had devastating consequences for all wildlife. In some instances, it's the primary reason why many species now face the risk of extinction. Anti-poaching teams have used dirt bikes for patrolling, as it's considered the fastest and most agile vessel to use in the wild. However, these bikes run on fuel, a scarce resource in the region that is expensive to transport in the remote areas. The combustion engine bikes also alert illegal poachers miles away with their noisy engines, failing to meet their core purpose: to save endangered species from extinction.
