Small businesses will have more opportunities to enter and innovate industries like hydrogen energy, pharmaceuticals, and agriculture with the opening of Australia’s first flow chemistry facility in Melbourne today.
Although the International Energy Agency’s latest renewables report forecasts impressive solar growth there is still a nagging feeling it has produced conservative estimates and the emphasis on sharing costs with grid operators is predictable.
Warrnambool City Council is a finalist in the 2019 Smart Cities Awards. Council has been recognised for its work on investigating hydrogen as a renewable energy source and establishing a relationship with the Swedish regional city of Mariestad, which is using hydrogen to power vehicles and heat buildings.
Researchers at Monash University have managed to find a way past one of the few remaining roadblocks to producing industrial quantities of hydrogen gas through electrolysis via solar energy.
Australia’s chief scientist Dr Alan Finkel continues to voice his support for some modicum of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in Australia’s hydrogen future, providing a lifeline to fossil fuel producers. While Finkel’s argument holds some water, it holds nowhere near enough water to produce a hydrogen economy.
Australia’s chief scientist Dr. Alan Finkel continues to push Australia toward a strong hydrogen economy produced by solar and wind through electrolysis. However, Finkel remains attached to the idea that toxically unpopular carbon capture and storage methods, a lifeline for fossil fuel producers, should also play a part.
Why is electric aviation still up in the air? Or rather, why isn’t it up in the air? We have Teslas on our roads, Melbourne’s trams are powered by solar, and trains are connected to the grid already, but why is electric aviation lagging behind?
The global expansion of PV, wind power and other clean energies will see double-digit growth this year as solar continues to lead the pack.
The Australian National University (ANU) has launched a new research project to provide a blueprint by which Australia can look to install itself as the renewable energy powerhouse of the region. The project raises both political and feasibility questions about Australia’s economic future.
Key players from Australia and Germany’s energy transitions sector are meeting in Melbourne this week to consider how to harness the opportunities for both countries as the world advances towards low emission energy systems.
