  • Worldwatch Report: Renewable Revolution: Low-Carbon Energy by 2030

    SummaryHumanity can prevent catastrophic climate change if we act now and adopt policies that reduce energy usage by unleashing the full potential of energy efficiency in concert with renewable energy resources. However, this goal is not likely to be achieved if our only measure of success is emissions reductions; climate change is fundamentally a ...

  • Thermal Energy Storage for Sustainable Energy Consumption

    We all share a small planet. Our growing thirst for energy already threatens the future of our earth. Fossil fuels – energy resources of today – are not evenly distributed on the earth. 10% of the world’s population exploits 90% of its resources. Today’s energy systems rely heavily on fossil fuel resources which are diminishing ever faster.The ...
