Getting real about the hydrogen economy – EQ Mag Pro

Hydrogen is frequently touted as a major player in decarbonization, and it is. But it will only be used at scale much later, and at a much lower level than solar and wind. Countries including China, Japan, South Korea and Australia have established national plans to facilitate hydrogen development. Some of the discussion associated with […]

Australia’s Case For Fossil Fuels Weakens as Solar And Wind Set Records

Solar and wind power are continuing to set records in Australia, pushing down electricity prices and reducing the profitability of fossil fuel generation. Wind last year overtook natural gas in power generation for the first time, and together with solar helped cut wholesale prices to their lowest since 2015, the Australian Energy Regulator said Friday […]

The Future of Battery-Free Stationary Energy Storage

Energy storage technology is key to the transition from fossil fuels to clean, sustainable power. Renewables such as solar and wind will have a greater role in electricity generation, but their intermittent nature means they cannot be relied upon 24/7; effective storage techniques must be found to ensure we reap the full benefits. Batteries currently […]

Taiwan Can Replace Nuclear Energy With Solar And Wind by 2025, But Country Still Heavily Reliant on Thermal Power

Taiwan’s nuclear power installed capacity decreased from 4.9 GW to 3.8 GW, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -1.2 percent, according to leading data and analytics company GlobalData. If this trend continues, the country is set to meet the government’s target of zero capacity by 2025. Taiwan intends to fill the gap created […]
