Better Than Batteries? A Startup That's Storing Energy in

The price of solar energy dropped 89 percent in 10 years, and new wind farms are being built both on land and offshore (with ever-bigger turbines capable of generating ever more energy). But simply adding more wind and solar generation capacity won't get us very far if we don't have a cost-effective, planet-friendly way to store the energy

World's largest wooden sailing ship ...

Vessels. September 1, 2021, by Fatima Bahtić. The world's largest wooden ocean-going sailing ship, Götheborg, is testing RME biodiesel made from rapeseed oil instead of marine diesel to reduce carbon footprint. Despite being a sailing ship, Götheborg needs generators to run all systems onboard, and engines for situations when the ship

3D Printing Concrete « Fabbaloo

Offshore Wind Energy. The global offshore wind energy is a growing industry with a nearly 30% per year increase between 2010 and 2018. This growth is relevant because large amounts of concrete are required for the foundation of a singular wind turbine, let alone an entire offshore wind farm.. Building wind turbines offshore is expensive and requires parts to be shipped about 30 miles away from
