Identifying Options for Re-Use of CO2

CO2 Utilization: A Look Ahead The Energy Collective, January 9, 2017 Finding ways to convert carbon dioxide from an energy and industrial sector waste product to a useful commodity could spur the development of new technologies, products, and industries while limiting emissions to the atmosphere of climate-altering pollutants. In 2016, U.S. policymakers demonstrated leadership in

Concentrated Solar Power: The Next Big Power Source

Amber Plante for Zondits, June 30, 2015. Image credit: 44833 Concentrating solar thermal power (CSP) is often seen as the smaller, less affordable option to solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, due in part to the sudden affordability of the latter. However, experts are now hawking CSP as the next big power source because of its ability to
