New tool shows best location for blue-green infrastructure
The amount of rain is increasing, and in urban areas the big question is what to do with all the water. A new GIS-based tool indicates where blue-green infrastructure, such as rain gardens, is best located.
Researchers want to store Swedish CO2 on the Norwegian shelf
A Swedish-Norwegian research project will be looking into the possibilities and costs of transporting CO2 captured in Sweden for storage on the Norwegian shelf. This is the first project ever to look into this possibility.
New research initiative will power up Europe’s battery revolution
A world moving from fossil fuels to renewable energy will rely more and more on energy storage and in particular on batteries. Better batteries can reduce the carbon footprint of the transport sector, stabilise the power grid, and much more. The Battery 2030+ large-scale research initiative will gather leading scientists in Europe, as well as the industry, to achieve a leap forward in battery science and technology. The first Battery 2030+ project kicks off in March 2019 and will lay the basis for this large-scale research initiative on future battery technologies.
