The 4 things needed to reach Biden’s ambitious 2050 solar goal

A report on the future of solar energy from the Department of Energy paints a sunny picture, if you will, of the next three decades, at the end of which nearly half the country’s energy will be provided by the sun. But for that to happen, big pushes need to happen along four major lines: better photovoltaics, more energy storage, lower soft costs, and putting about a million people to work. Here’s what the report says needs to happen in each of these sectors in order to meet the ambitious goals ...

Northwestern scores $3.3M DOE grant to research CCS behavior

In Illinois, Northwestern University will receive $3.3 million from the Department of Energy to examine how the dynamic behavior of promising carbon capture systems impacts the systems’ ability to capture and release carbon dioxide. Specifically, the research team will study metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), porous materials with uniform structures that are promising solid sorbents – a sponge of sorts for capturing CO2 from air. The objective is to study these changes over a high number of captur...
