New Mark Z. Jacobson Study Draws A Roadmap To 100% Renewable Energy

February 8th, 2018 | by Steve Hanley

Last August, Mark Jacobson, a renewable energy expert and senior fellow at the Precourt Institute for Energy at Stanford University, was the leader of a study that identified how 139 countries around the world could obtain 100% of their energy from renewable sources by 2050. But that study got some pushback from people who questioned its assumptions. The naysayers said the study relied too heavily on energy storage solutions such as adding turbines to existing hydroelectric dams or storing excess energy in water, ice, and underground rocks

Coal Pit Water Pumping Costs Set Precedent

September 17th, 2017 | by Dr. Karl-Friedrich Lenz

Today I learned that the German Ruhr region needs to find a budget of around 220 million Euro a year to deal with the environmental consequences of 150 years of coal mining. Around two thirds of that sum is needed for pumping pit water.


Pittsburgh’s Cleantech Leadership Flowering

August 24th, 2017 | by Carolyn Fortuna

Pittsburgh has committed to 50% reduction in CO2 emissions and energy and water usage by the year 2030, leading North American cities in this regard. It has made significant headway toward these goals, largely by applying lots of cleantech, according to the Pittsburgh 2030 District’s newly released 2016 Progress Report
