Technology That Can Double The Power Harvested From Ocean Waves

Technology That Can Double The Power Harvested From Ocean Waves

The untapped potential of ocean wave energy is vast - it has been estimated that the power of coastal waves around the world each year is equivalent to annual global electricity production. With over 35,000 km of coastline, Australia is ideally placed to tap into this power source. Analysis shows Australia could produce twice its current electricity output by harvesting just 17% of its wave energy.

Solar-Powered Microbes to Feed the World?

Solar-Powered Microbes to Feed the World?

An international research team has shown that using solar-panels to produce microbial protein - which is rich not just in proteins but also in other nutrients - is more sustainable, efficient and environmentally friendly than growing conventional crops. This method uses solar energy, land, nutrients, and carbon dioxide from the air.

Electrification Will Take Mines Beyond Mining

Electrification Will Take Mines Beyond Mining

Imagine mines with so much electricity production and storage that they do far more downstream processing. As reserves deplete, many will even transition to being zero-emission power stations and electricity storage for local communities and industry or even national grids. The cost of making-good becomes income from reinvention. That is the untold story of mining electrification, beyond the vital safety, greening, and cost reduction of electrics.

Developing Machine Learning Tools for Soil Moisture Data

Currently, various different products are available for data on soil moisture and evapotranspiration, the process by which water is transferred from the land to the atmosphere by evaporation from the soil and transpiration from plants. However, there is no consensus about the best datasets to use to support on-farm decision-making, and the data are not easy to access or use.

Award for Europe's Largest "Fruitvoltaic" System

The project in Babberich has a capacity of 2.67 MWp and is spread over 3.3 hectares of a raspberry farm. Due to the special construction of the semi-transparent photovoltaic roof, there is no need for plastic arches to protect against extreme weather events. The solution provides a stable climate for growing fruits and generates green energy at the same time.

First Precision Breeding of Sugarcane With CRISPR/Cas9

Sugarcane is one of the most productive plants on Earth, providing 80 percent of the sugar and 30 percent of the bioethanol produced worldwide. Its size and efficient use of water and light give it tremendous potential for the production of renewable value-added bioproducts and biofuels. But the highly complex sugarcane genome poses challenges for conventional breeding, requiring more than a decade of trials for the development of an improved cultivar.
