    Even master chess players can miss a great move when they have been primed to look for a different one. To explore this phenomenon, researchers tracked master chess players’ eye movements when given chessboards with different layouts. With the first board, players could reach checkmate using a familiar move. When given the second chessboard, the players' eyes kept looking at the pieces ...

  • Increasing ambition for renewable heating and cooling: Is the current energy modelling enough?

    EGEC has released a policy paper assessing the current European Commission’s energy modelling for heating and cooling, used to generate forecasts that serve as basis for policy proposals and policy making. The resulting analysis shows a lack of robustness in the ...

  • Closing the door on building new coal-fired power plants in America

  • Oceans of Energy

    Technologies that harness the energy of moving water or temperature differentials in the oceans promise to deliver abundant carbon-free electricity. Long before humans got hooked on fossil fuels, we learned how to harness the power of water to do work. Rivers ran mills that ground flour, sawed logs or spun looms that transformed fibers into textiles. Later generations realized that moving water ...
