World’s largest floating offshore wind farm powers oil & gas fields

Hywind Tampen is owned by the Gullfaks and Snorre partners and, when construction is complete, will consist of 11 turbines with a total capacity of 88MW. The wind farm is expected to meet around 35% of the electricity demand of the two oil and gas fields, cutting CO2 emissions from the fields by around 200,000 …

Hydrogen-producing rooftop solar panels become REAL

The Solhyd project moved from the university labs to a new 350 square-meter production space close to the Belgian town of Leuven, where pilot production lines were established with the help of Flemish government funding. Initially, the team will produce a few dozen hydrogen panels for small-scale pilot projects. But by 2026, the team expects …

France says all parking lots now have to be covered by solar panels

This summer, the French government solidified two zones for offshore wind farms off the coast of the Atlantic following a massive public debate involving 15,000 participants, with environmental protection being the biggest concern. France’s national rail service SNCF also plans to install 190,000 square meters of solar panels in 156 stations throughout the country by …

Solar panels that work at night could power the Earth 24/7

Researchers at Stanford modified commercially available solar panels to generate a small amount of electricity at night by exploiting a process known as radiative cooling, which relies on the frigid vacuum of space. When an object is facing the sky at night, it radiates heat out to outer space, which means that an object can …
