12:44 | How about a well insulated shipping container that can handle 1300 degrees Celsius and be delivered to small operators who need low grade heat, or to district heating systems to keep you toasty warm in the winter?

Have we got enough minerals?

Have we got enough minerals?

13:05 | Will batteries for hundreds of millions of future electric vehicles rob the planet of all its precious minerals? And what about all the minerals and materials for billions of wind turbines and solar panels?

12:31 | Smart grids delivering renewable energy across continents will require extremely long electricity transmission distances. China is tackling the issue by switching from AC to DC power and ramping up the output to 1.1 million volts.

For at kunne lave et fossilfrit samfund er det nødvendigt at tilpasse vores energisystemer, så de mange alternative energikilder kan fungere sammen, og så energi kan oplagres eller sendes over lange afstande.
