Reducing CO2 intensity
International shipping could raise ambition
CO2 intensity of international shipping has already been reduced by 30% from 2008 levels in 2018, nearly reaching the 40% reduction target set for 2030. The sector could therefore further scale up goals for decarbonisation in the coming years.
Carbon negative through geothermal energy
Close to 1% of the Philippines’ land area, that’s what it takes for the country’s Energy Development Corporation (EDC) to be carbon negative. The vegetation in EDC’s four geothermal reservations absorbed almost five times the amount of CO2 emissions in 2018.
Reacting to the coronavirus
Can we respond the same way to climate change?
The coronavirus has transformed everyday life so significantly that the effects are already showing up in satellite photos. In China, for example, before-and-after satellite photos show pollution disappearing as work came to a standstill.
Solar water farm
Drinking water supply for 35,000 people daily
Due to a drought, residents of the coastal village of Kiunga in Kenya were forced to drink water from saltwater wells, a practice that may result in kidney failure. Powerwall batteries and solar panels are now being used to make saltwater suitable for drinking.
The Carbon Clean200
Leading the transition to a clean energy future
Around two-thirds of the world’s population now live in countries in which wind or solar are the lowest-cost ways of generating power. With economics shifting in favour of clean energy, investors look to pinpoint the companies leading the way to a clean energy future.
New catalyst in town
Upgrading CO2 using renewable energy
A team of researchers from Canada and the U.S. produced a new catalyst transforming CO2 into textiles, paints, diapers… or even spirits. The source of electricity required to upgrade CO2 into hydrocarbons can be perfectly renewable, such as solar, wind or hydraulic energy.
