Back in June, we made a deep dive into nuclear fusion, explaining that fusion is based on the idea that energy can be released by forcing atomic nuclei together rather than separating them, basically the opposite reaction of fission. Our sun for instance is generating power through a hyperscale fusion reaction. But on Earth, this…
Green incentive plans, technology breakthroughs and rising consumer adoption are giving a massive boost to the energy transition and to our electric future, with the stated goal to get to a carbon-free world in 2050.
Renewable energies, that have reached grid parity, become dominant in new power generation and are expected over coming decades to account for 48% of the power mix and 64% when including hydropower.
But as they are by nature intermittent, energy storage becomes a key element of the power puzzle.
