Currently, in remote off-grid locations, electricity is primarily generated using diesel generators, which is expensive and has significant carbon emissions. Alternatively, these remote locations have a huge potential for utilizing renewable energy sources. In such locations, airborne wind energy (AWE) systems could have an advantage over...

As PV capacity in urban areas keeps increasing, non-uniform illumination of panels will become more prevalent. This could cause the partial shading to become more frequent, reducing PV system performance. Some ways to solve this problem is by the use of module-level maximum power point tracking (MPPT), micro inverters, or...

Floating photovoltaic (FPV) is an emerging concept. Potential is recognized in combining FPV and off­ shore wind farms to create an offshore wind and solar farm. One of the remaining uncertainties around the potential of an offshore wind and solar farm is the value of the operations and maintenance cost. As one of the main contributing factors...

Among the emerging photovoltaic (PV) technologies under development, perovskite solar cells (PSCs) stood out in the last decade as one the fastest advancing solar technology to date, reaching a power conversion efficiency of 25.5% in 2020. Perovskite (PVK) absorbers show great versatility thanks to compositional and bandgap engineering. In this...

In the Global South, large urban spaces resulted in the duality between the so-called ‘formal’ and ‘informal’ cities. It is the case of São Paulo, a twenty-two-million people metropolis and a financial hub in Latin America. Albeit a vast literature addresses the social-spatial segregation emerging from this dual built environment, the scarcity...

With the 2019 European Green Deal, the EU has set an ambitious roadmap to enable European citizens to benefit from a Green Transition. One of the main goal of the Green Deal is the deployment of renewable energy sources. Within these, solar power has been identified as the fastest growing<br/>source. Within solar technologies, crystalline...

The energy transition, is one of the most important topics nowadays. Renewable energy sources contribution in the energy mix is growing rapidly. However, due to their intermittent power output, they cannot ensure system security and stability, and therefore, energy storage technologies are needed. In this direction, hydrogen is an energy carrier...

In recent years, there is growing evidence that global warming arises from human activities, and as a result, efforts are being made worldwide to ease the burden on the environment and avoid the worst consequences of climate change. One of the most important interventions is the decrease in carbon emissions from the energy sector. In the...

In the near future, wind and solar generation are projected to play an increasingly important role in Europe's energy sector. With such fast-growing renewable energy development, the presence of simultaneous calm wind and overcast conditions could cause significant shortfalls in production with potentially serious consequences for system...

The municipality of Amsterdam has set stringent carbon emission reduction targets: 55% by 2030 and 95% by 2050 for the entire metropolitan area. One of the key strategies to achieve these goals entails a disconnection of all households from the natural gas supply by 2040 and connecting them to the existing city-wide heat grid. This paper aims to...

To reach its goal of net greenhouse gas neutrality by 2050, the European Union seeks to massively expand wind and solar power. Relying on weather-dependent power generation, however, poses substantial risks if climate variability is not adequately understood and accounted for in energy system design. Here we quantify European wind and solar...

In the coming decades, the European energy system is expected to become increasingly reliant on non-dispatchable generation such as wind and solar power. Under such a renewable energy scenario, a better characterization of the extreme weather condition ‘Dunkelflaute’, which can lead to a sustained reduction of wind and solar power, is important....

Generating renewable energy on Mars is technologically challenging. Firstly, because, compared to Earth, key energy resources such as solar and wind are weak as a result of very low atmospheric pressure and low solar irradiation. Secondly, because of the harsh environmental conditions, the required high degree of automation, and the exceptional...
