In Minneapolis, a new proposal has been introduced for a city project that would include the use of a thermal energy system using an underground aquifer. The project includes a food hall and apartment complex on the edge of the Mississippi river. Minneapolis is known for being one of the coldest
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recently announced their annual list of the Top 10 U.S. States for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building, with Colorado at the top spot, based on 2019 LEED data. The Washington, D.C.-based USGBC created LEED, the most prolific green building framework
Scientists at Rice University in Houston TX have found a way to create Graphene by using waste. The process, named flash graphene, works by heating carbon-containing materials to 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Heat this intense creates graphene in 10 milliseconds. This graphene can then be used in a wide range of
Technology behemoth Microsoft, based in the United States (U.S.), made its position on corporate sustainability clear with a bold pledge late January – to be carbon negative by 2030, and further, a 2050 goal to eliminate all of the carbon the company has introduced since its inception in 1975. Many
Scotland is on track to reach 100% renewable energy target by the end of 2020. In 2016, the country closed down its last coal fired power plant. The plant once powered 25% of homes in the country and was once the largest coal plant in all of Europe. The majority of
The L.A Reservoir has 96 million black balls floating on it. When the shade balls were introduced into the reservoir, many people had questions about the purpose and effectiveness.
A new mineral is being used for solar panels that could greatly improve the efficiency of solar panels. Perovskite is a calcium titanium oxide mineral found in the Ural Mountains of Russia in the 1800’s. Excitement about this mineral has grown due to its efficiency, unusual properties, and its low
The British company Highview Power Inc. has developed a process to store energy for the grid without the need for fossil fuels. The system involves cooling air, storing it efficiently, and using the re-gasification process to drive a turbine and create electricity without combustion. The Cryogenic energy storage process cools
