Costs will come in the way of a green energy future

By Manuel Kuehn

Especially, since hydrogen already has a plethora of uses in industrial sector, and primarily used as a basic chemical in the synthesis of ammonia and other fertilizers such as urea. And for the synthesis of methanol, various polymers, and resins.


Full Frame: Water and Sustainability

One of the culprits of water pollution is fracking – short for hydraulic fracturing. It’s a process of drilling deep into shale rock and using high-pressure water and chemicals to release the gas trapped inside.


Gas to nuclear? Dominion looks beyond pipeline’s demise

By Heather Richards and Peter Behr

Dominion and Thomas Farrell, its chief executive, faced a new clean energy imperative following the enactment in April of the Virginia Clean Economy Act, which mandated that Dominion convert to renewable energy by 2045, making Virginia one of the first states in the South to set such a binding target. Virginia is also joining the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a compact among Eastern states to reduce climate-affecting carbon dioxide power plant emissions.


The Economic Tide Of This Renewable Resource Is Rising

Ocean waves are caused by wind blowing along the ocean’s surface. These waves hold a tremendous amount of energy, and because the wind blows consistently and with a lot of force, the water is able to hold continuous waves.


Solar energy and carbon capture technology

Similarly, NASA has developed technology which uses low-cost nanomaterial devices to convert CO2 to fuel using solar power. NASA’s technology is powered by a photoelectrochemical cell made from thin metal oxide films. Using such devices, CO2 produced in industrial processes could be captured before it is emitted to the atmosphere and then converted to fuel such as methane.


Europe wants to use hydrogen to slow climate change – will it work?

By Adam Vaughan

That is why the strategy demands targets on what it calls “renewable hydrogen”, produced using electrolysers powered by renewable sources of electricity. It wants 4 gigawatts of electrolyser capacity by 2024, rising to 40 gigawatts by 2030, up from less than 1 gigawatt today.


Energy Department authorizes LNG exports from Oregon terminal

On Sunday, the two big utilities who had partnered in a plan to build the Atlantic Coast Pipeline announced they were giving up on the project. Richmond-based Dominion Energy and Charlotte-based Duke Energy had until recently expressed a strong commitment to the massive project that was becoming increasingly untenable.


Virginia Democrats Cheer Cancellation Of $8 Billion Natural Gas Pipeline

By Margaret Barthel Photo by Steve Helber

The project faced significant legal and grassroots pushback from environmental and community groups. But action by a district court in Montana to overturn a nationwide permit for crossing water and wetlands was the final straw, the companies said — even despite a Supreme Court decision last month that would have allowed the project to cross the Appalachian Trail.


‘Renewable’ natural gas may sound green, but it’s not an antidote for climate change

By Emily Grubert

Natural gas is a versatile fossil fuel that accounts for about a third of U.S. energy use. Although it produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants than coal or oil, natural gas is a major contributor to climate change, an urgent global problem. Reducing emissions from the natural gas system is especially challenging because natural gas is used roughly equally for electricity, heating, and industrial applications.
