(This post was published earlier this year on Medium. Sorry for the lack of content this year. Hopefully, 2021 will bring more exciting stories and analysis…) The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has brought our global economy to a standstill, with fears of the worst recession since 1929. Over 26 millions have already lost their jobs in… Continue reading The COVID-19 Pandemic Throws Oil and Coal Industries in a Tailspin
A reflection on climate change and the daunting but exciting task at hand in energy, transportation, industry, food production and so on.
Steven Pinker’s latest book, Enlightenment Now, misses the mark on climate change and plastic pollution. And this is a problem.
A lot has been said about the booming global capacities of solar and wind in the past few years. But wind works at a maximum 35% of the time for onshore and perhaps 45% for offshore wind. Solar PV is even lower, with 20 to 30% capacity factor. So, backup solutions are being sought. 2017… Continue reading How energy storage made headlines in 2017
For years, grid parity – the time when solar and wind would be cost-competitive with fossil fuels and nuclear – was the holy grail of renewables energy, a target to reach in a distant future. But the future is now.
Renewables currently generate very little of Puerto Rico’s electricity but hopefully this could change after Hurricane Maria.
Climate change can be fixed by switching from cars to bikes, planting trees in our cities, tapping into energy efficiency’s potential and ditching coal and natural gas for solar and wind. Learn out more in this article.
I came across several articles on my home country lately and thought it was the occasion to keep everyone updated on how the French energy transition is going on.
While the United States are wondering what will happen next on climate change mitigation in their country, both India and China have recently unvealed very ambitious targets to fight local air pollution and global climate change.
This week I am continuying my ten-month series based on articles I wrote for my Operations classes for my MBA at Presidio Graduate School. Hope you will like this series !
For long, China was seen as a climate villain, fuelling its amazing economic growth by burning more and more coal. But times are changing, and the People’s Republic is emerging as a climate leader.
Another world is possible. It is always a question of public willingness. The latest example of this is Costa Rica – 4.9 million inhabitants strong – which ran for almost four months on a hundred percent renewable electricity.
