Coal continues to dominate global carbon emissions

Despite explosive growth in renewable energy consumption, continued strong growth in coal consumption has further consolidated coal as the dominate source of carbon dioxide emissions. In its annual analysis of global carbon emissions production published on 19th November 2013, the Global Carbon Project (GCP) found that global emissions from fossil fuel combustion and cement production reached a record high of 35 billion tonnes CO2 in 2012, 58 per cent above the level of 1990.

Upp - a portable power source for connected devices based on innovative hydrogen fuel cell technology

The Upp fuel cell takes hydrogen and combines it with air to produce clean electricity with water vapour as a by-product

Intelligent Energy, the global power technology company, has launched Upp™, a hydrogen fuel cell personal energy device, to charge and power USB-compatible portable electronic devices, such as smartphones, feature phones, eReaders, tablets, portable gaming consoles, and digital cameras.

Upp provides instant energy on-the-go: so as long as you have fuel, you will have energy. Read more »

New research from Germany shows that steady and consistent development of offshore wind energy allows for substantial cost reduction

New research from Germany has concluded that the cost of electricity from offshore wind energy can be reduced by about one third if it is consistently developed and growing over the next ten years. The report has obvious implications for the continuing development of the UK offshore wind energy industry. If costs can be driven down across the industry, this will help renewables reach parity with energy produced from fossil fuels. The establishment of a UK-based supply chain will benefit the economy in terms of growth and job creation. Read more »
