This image gives the reader some basic information about Engineers Without Borders, an organization with active chapters all over the world. EWB employs engineers to design and implement sustainable projects in developing countries. There are chapters at both the university and professional levels.
Andy from GENI gives a short presentation about energy storage technologies and how renewable energies are becoming more and more of an important aspect of today's energy grid. But with the fluctuating output of solar and wind energies, new ways need to be found to store energy and maintain a safe and reliable energy supply.
Iceland has lots of geothermal energy, Norway has hydropower. The wind blows hard in Scotland and the sun always shines in North Africa. Helen Knight explores plans to connect these diverse sources to a single network
Plans to supply all of Europe's electricity from renewable sources has come a step closer thanks to progress in efforts to build a continent-wide supergrid connected to North Africa and theMiddle East.
A new geospatial application developed by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) allows users to easily and accurately map potential renewable energy resources in the United States.
