Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
iScience, Volume 26, Issue 1, 20 January 2023, 105803
In this paper the authors show how the heterogeneity in cities means that individual cities need specific low-carbon roadmaps, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach
As the world scrambles to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, hydrogen has emerged as a potential silver bullet to help mitigate climate change. Hydrogen has been in consideration as a potential aid to decarbonization for over 50 years. However, it is only now that it has gained traction in government strategies, business plans, and the media. But what makes the attention given to hydrogen in the 2020s different from the 1970s? This article relates to SDGs 7 and 13.
This article, relating to SDGs 7 and 13, details Europe's race to maintain its position as a leader in renewable energy as global green wars intensify. Although Europe is investing heavily in new green technologies, they face significant challenges including increasing competition from countries like China and the US, as well as political and economic challenges.
Sustainable valorisation of agri-food waste from open-air markets in Kampala, Uganda via standalone and integrated waste conversion technologies
Biomass and Bioenergy, Volume 172, May 2023, 106752
Enormous amounts of agri-food waste are generated in the open market, especially in sub-Saharan African cities. This work reports the system optimisation of the management of these open-market food wastes for producing bioenergy and value-added materials and also evaluates the environmental impacts of the selected waste processing routes. It supports decision-making on the management of food waste in developing countries furthering SDG 7, 8 &13.
