Scientists by chance Discover Efficient Process to Turn CO2 Into Ethanol

The process is cheap, efficient, and scalable, meaning it could soon be used to remove large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere. Scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee have discovered a chemical reaction to turn CO2 into ethanol, potentially creating a new technology to help avert climate change. Their findings were published […]

Regulating Energy Storage

Increasing demands from utility companies on the energy industry have once again placed distributed energy resources, including renewable energy, in the spotlight as a significant regulatory issue. This is because utility companies require the ability to accurately forecast connection with the grid in a safe, reliable, and efficient way. These requirements, coupled with issues of […]
