Why wave power isn’t everywhere (yet)

Why wave power isn’t everywhere (yet)

11:16 | The oceans, that cover most of the planet, are full of energy. So much, in fact, that if we could harness that of all the waves, we’d fulfill global demand three times over. There’s just one small problem.

Algae – The super plant of the future

Algae – The super plant of the future

42:26 | Algae are perhaps the most adaptable and productive organisms on Earth. They’re an important food source, and their ability to provide oil could make them a replacement for fossil fuels.

How green is solar energy really?

How green is solar energy really?

9:02 | More and more solar panels are popping up all over the world – and it’s easy to see why: They provide clean energy at falling prices. But there are also some not-so-green sides to this technology.

The untapped energy source that could power the planet

The untapped energy source that could power the planet

15:10 | Deep beneath your feet is a molten ball of energy the same temperature as the surface of the sun — an immense clean energy source that could power the world thousands of times over, says Jamie C. Beard.

Is wind power the future of freight shipping?

Is wind power the future of freight shipping?

The global freight shipping industry accounts for nearly 3% of all GHG emissions, so freight operators are on a quest to reach net zero by 2050. Here’s three of the most promising wind power options that could help them get there.

Micro Hydropower : Turbulent Turbines

Micro Hydropower : Turbulent Turbines

14:02 | A new micro-hydropower technology is working with the natural flow of water and wildlife rather than against it, to bring much needed constant baseload power to off grid areas in remote areas of developing nations.

One Sun One World One Grid

One Sun One World One Grid

25:54 | India and China will most likely be key to the success or failure of our transition to a sustainable future. They’re now jostling for geopolitical power too.

Biomass. Is it killing our forests?

Biomass. Is it killing our forests?

11:11 | Biomass is held up by governments around the world as a net-zero carbon alternative to fossil fuels. Just like most aspects of climate change mitigation though, the reality is far more complicated than that.

Floating wind farms

Floating wind farms

25:42 | With two thirds of our planet covered by sea, maybe it’s time to look to the horizon for our future energy needs. Are floating wind farms the answer?
