How much of the electricity in your country comes from renewable sources?

Energy consumption is rapidly increasing. From 62,949 TWh (terawatt-hours) in the year 1969 to 173,340 terawatt-hours in 2019, the world’s yearly energy consumption has more than tripled. By 2020, fossil fuels — oil, coal, and gas – would have provided approximately 80% of the world’s energy. Renewable energy, such as hydropower, the solar, wind, and biofuels, made up… Continue reading How much of the electricity in your country comes from renewable sources?

Getting over a stumbling block on the road to renewable energy storage

Engineers must discover a means to store renewable energy reliably and on a massive scale if renewable energies are to someday substitute fossil fuels. Several researchers are now investigating the prospects of storing energy in a gaseous state inside electrolytic cells. Electrolytic cells work by causing water molecules to split into hydrogen and oxygen through… Continue reading Getting over a stumbling block on the road to renewable energy storage

A spike in energy is required for the EV revolution to succeed

The electric vehicle transition may blow a fuse unless the charging problem is swiftly solved. True, drivers are responding to the concept, but they are hesitant to make the move due to range anxiety and a lack of fast-charging facilities. They are correct to be apprehensive, based on the experience of many drivers over the last… Continue reading A spike in energy is required for the EV revolution to succeed

In 2021, Vedanta Aluminium purchased 2 billion units of clean energy

The Indian aluminum manufacturer Vedanta Aluminium Business declared that it had surpassed all other industrial consumers of renewable energy to become the country’s largest industrial buyer of renewable energy. On India’s power exchanges, such as Power Exchange India Limited (PXIL) and the Indian Energy Exchange (IEX), the company was a leader in renewable energy acquisition.… Continue reading In 2021, Vedanta Aluminium purchased 2 billion units of clean energy

NASA is planning to launch an astrophysics probe program

By unveiling plans for the new line of missions and establishing the basis for future huge space telescopes, NASA is beginning to put the suggestions of the astrophysics decadal review into action. The agency announced it will proceed with a line of “probe” class operations intended to bridge the gap between the large flagship missions and… Continue reading NASA is planning to launch an astrophysics probe program

Nuclear propulsion would aid military satellites in maneuvering out of harm’s path, according to a report

A spacecraft propelled by a nuclear propulsion technology will be launched into orbit as part of a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency experiment. This technology, according to Michael Leahy, who is the director of DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office, might provide the US military an edge over adversaries by making satellites highly maneuverable and far less vulnerable… Continue reading Nuclear propulsion would aid military satellites in maneuvering out of harm’s path, according to a report

Other ISS partners are beginning to plan for a 2030 extension

The White House’s decision to extend the International Space Station’s activities through the end of the decade acts as a “trigger” for other partners to develop their plans to stay on board. The Biden team agreed to keep the ISS operational until 2030, NASA reported on December 31. The station’s operations were approved by federal… Continue reading Other ISS partners are beginning to plan for a 2030 extension

Plans for the Lethen Wind Farm have been submitted to the Scottish Government

The Scottish Government has approved Fred. Olsen Renewables’ application to build 17-turbine wind complex 10 kilometers north of Grantown-on-Spey. If accepted, the proposals will put forward a distinctive fuel poverty program that will assist local residents in lowering their energy bills and addressing fuel poverty in the area, as well as generating a significant community… Continue reading Plans for the Lethen Wind Farm have been submitted to the Scottish Government

The breakup of China’s Yunhai-1 (02) satellite has been related to a collision with space debris

According to NASA, an encounter with a minor piece of debris from a Russian satellite launch led the Chinese spacecraft Yunhai-1 (02) to break down. The Yunhai-1 (02) satellite was built by the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology and deployed into the Sun-synchronous orbit having a height of around 783 kilometers in September 2019. It disintegrated… Continue reading The breakup of China’s Yunhai-1 (02) satellite has been related to a collision with space debris
