Wind and solar will provide 50% of global power by 2050, but this may still not be enough to meet the 2 degree climate change target.
The 2019 New Energy Outlook (NEO) report suggests that, in at least two thirds of the world, wind or solar already represents the least expensive option for adding new power-generating capacity.We discuss the report’s findings, and take look at what is being done here in the UK to meet the challenges posed by the report.
For years we have heard many reports discussing one of the most important issues of our time-Climate change. One obvious solution is the full change from fossil fuel based energy sources to renewable energy sources. In this blog we will explore trends in renewable energy consumption and generation, and whether renewable energy sources may overtake non-renewable sources in the future.
The increasing number of patent applications for renewable energy generation offers hope for climate change.
Although nearly all commercially available hybrids and battery electric vehicles use Li-ion batteries, there are some concerns regarding energy density and safety of Li-ion batteries, especially in the transport sector.Replacing the liquid electrolyte with a solid electrolyte is being considered as one of the possible ways to both mitigate the safety concerns and to improve the currently limited energy density.
The oil and gas industry values, and is placing a greater emphasis on IP. But how should these valued IP assets be protected?
A new study led by the Australian National University could lead to cheaper and more efficient solar technology. According to the study, the current photovoltaic (PV) cell market is dominated by silicon based technology, which is nearing its theoretical efficiency limit.
Ben Palmer challenges the conventional wisdom regarding the link between the oil price and patenting activity.
