Two years after its historic deep freeze, Texas is increasingly vulnerable to cold snaps – and there are more solutions than just building power plants

"As energy researchers based in Texas, we have spent much of the past two years analyzing why the state was so unprepared for this event and how it can do better. A common knee-jerk reaction to disasters that cause widespread power outages is to call for building more “firm” power plants – those that use fuels like coal or natural gas and are designed to deliver power at any time of day or night. But coal and gas plants, and their fuel supplies, can fail spectacularly."

How a Canadian Small Reactor Will Support Industrial Decarbonization

"The ARC-100 is an advanced small modular reactor (aSMR) with a very simple design and small footprint, approximately 10 acres. It is a sodium-cooled fast reactor (SFR) which uses liquid sodium as a coolant instead of water. This allows the coolant to operate at higher temperatures and lower pressures than current traditional reactors which improves the efficiency of the system.  Our technology is an advanced reactor and meets the goals for Generation IV nuclear technology: improved safety, sustainability, efficiency, and cost."

This startup uses volcanic rock dust to suck carbon dioxide out of the air

"Startup Lithos Carbon, however, is focusing on the land, and a natural tool: basalt, a black igneous rock that’s common on volcanically active islands like Hawaii and Iceland. Lithos recycles existing basalt dust—a quarrying by-product—and spreads it over crop land. When rainwater mixes with the basalt dust, it triggers a chemical reaction that captures and locks up CO2 as bicarbonate."
