Germany With 23.4 Renewable Energy Capacity

The share of renewable energies in the generation of electricity in Germany rose last year to a record level of 23.4 percent (2012: 22.8 percent). Whilst electricity generated from photovoltaics attained a new high, with an increase of 7.3 percent, the proportion generated by wind decreased by 3.5 percent due to unfavorable weather conditions. Consequently, […]

Battery Development Could Extend Electric Cars Range

It’s known that electric vehicles could travel longer distances before needing to charge and more renewable energy could be saved for a rainy day if lithium-sulfur batteries can just overcome a few technical challenges. Now, a novel design for a critical part of the battery has been shown to significantly extend the technology’s lifespan, bringing […]

Is Renewable Energy More Expensive Than Conventional Energy?

In energy scenarios, energy systems are mixes of fossil fuels, renewable energy, and nuclear power, combined with models of future infrastructure (e.g., power grids, buildings, cars, and factories) and levels of future energy demand (accounting for population, economic growth and structure, and energy efficiency). Many other factors enter the picture, such as future fossil fuel […]
