The construction project, believed to be the biggest in Danish history, will link hundreds of wind turbines to deliver enough electricity for millions of households. Authorities hope to have the hub operable by 2033.
Last year, the world invested more in solar power than in all fossil-fuel sources combined. “We are at a turning point … from fossil fuels to the renewable world,” UN Environment head Erik Solheim told.
The project will create 100,000 jobs, reduce Saudi Arabia's dependence on oil for its electricity, which it can sell internationally instead, and will generate 200 gigawatts of electricity by 2030.
The cost of solar panels and batteries has fallen dramatically, and this first subsidy-free development is a significant moment for clean energy in the UK.
Singapore and German researchers succeeded in developing and fabricating the first full-size interdigitated back contact (IBC) bifacial solar module in the world. The groundbreaking module could last longer and generate more power.
At one coal-fired power plant in southern India, Carbon Clean Solutions is capturing CO2 and turning it into baking powder for the first time at a large-scale industrial operation.
