Albania, Bhutan, Nepal, Paraguay, Iceland, Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo produced more than 99.7 per cent of the electricity they consumed using geothermal, hydro, solar or wind power. Due to technological trajectories set in motion by past policy, a global irreversible solar tipping point may have passed.
Sustainable sourcing, eco-design, industrial and territorial ecology, the functionality economy, responsible consumption, extended useful life and waste recycling. These seven points sum up the circular economy, a practice that aims to extend the life cycle of products in order to reduce the consumption of raw materials and the production of waste.
While solar irrigation has potential for reducing poverty and improving livelihoods and incomes in low and middle income countries (global south), greenhouse gas emissions reductions are not likely to meet expectations, and the groundwater use will increase.
South Africa-based S Mile Solutions is developing vehicle-integrated photovoltaic (VIPV) mobile systems built onto commercially available pickup trucks with mobile clinics as its first target market. The system is completely removable and can be adapted to fit on various pickup truck makes.
Essentially, a mesh-grid is a connection of individual clean energy installations which are able to function collaboratively as a unit to provide reliable clean energy. By combining the energy potential of mini-grids with the ease of use and low cost of solar home systems (SHS), mesh-grids are well-suited for many communities.
According to a statement by the scientists, the study aimed to evaluate the threat of mining to the ape population in Africa which makes up over one-third of the entire population with 180,000 gorillas, bonobos, and chimpanzees. These animals are now at risk of endangerment.
Included in the Ugandan Finance ministry’s tax proposals this week was tax exemption on locally manufactured electric vehicles (EVs) and charging equipment. Ethiopia is phasing out petroleum-fuelled motorcycles for electric ones. Neighbouring Kenya launched a draft national electric mobility policy to create a pathway to sustainable e-mobility.
More than 1 billion people living in cities globally do not have reliable, safe or affordable access to basic everyday necessities like decent housing, running water and sanitation, electricity, health care, or transportation to get to work or school. This “urban services divide” is not only a development challenge but a roadblock to climate action
