Why NASA wants to put a nuclear power plant on the moon

“Nuclear energy has always been a very clean form of energy and extremely effective,” he said. “Realistically, it will be pivotal to deep space exploration, and more importantly, to humanity becoming a multi-planetary species. This new dawn of space exploration will see a resurgence in the nuclear industry until the next form of efficient, clean energy is discovered.”

At $16 Billion, Australian Solar Project Would Be Biggest In The World

“This project would combine the world’s largest solar farm, the largest battery, and longest undersea electricity cable. The 10 gigawatt (GW) solar farm would cover 30,000 acres in Australia’s sunny Northern Territory. That is about the equivalent of 9 million rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) panels. The solar farm would be paired with a 30 gigawatt-hour (GWh) battery storage facility to enable round-the-clock dispatch of renewable power.”

APS Taps Wind to Deliver Clean Energy to its Customers

"'Renewable energy resources like this wind power are important to a diverse and increasingly clean energy mix for Arizona,' says Brad Albert, vice president of resource management at APS. 'By working with supplier partners like Leeward, APS is advancing toward our target of having 45% of our generation portfolio in renewable energy by 2030 on the path to 100% clean energy by 2050.'"

This Startup Plans To Recycle Waste To Produce Energy Cheaper Than Gas

“A few players are tapping into the renewable hydrogen market. One of them being California based, Ways2H, which has developed a technology that converts waste into renewable hydrogen through a zero-carbon process. Wasy2H takes waste, that does not contain metal or glass, anything from medical supplies, wood or even plastic litter, and through a patented thermochemical process (not burning), converts it into a gas, from which it then extracts the hydrogen. And voila, near carbon free hydrogen.”

DOE study: This rooftop solar fix could slash CO2

"'A lot of people talk about rooftop solar as, maybe this could be part of the solution for energy justice,’ he said. ‘Whereas now, it's part of the problem. The motivation of this paper is, maybe there are some policies and business models that have begun to alleviate this problem.’"
