2019, December, 11, 10:00:00U.S. LOCATIONS OF RENEWABLES
It matters where you construct and install clean energy projects, because, depending on the location, these projects can be of greater benefit than they already are in suboptimal locations.
2019, December, 6, 13:25:00TREBLING NUCLEAR POWER
Renewable energy sources alone are not capable of fully decarbonising the economy, but they can complement nuclear energy in achieving this goal. The nuclear industry, led by World Nuclear Association, has set the Harmony goal for nuclear energy to provide 25% of global electricity by 2050. This will require trebling nuclear generation from its present level.
