This chapter provides information on the benefits of pumped hydro energy storage as a means of providing consisent renewable energy power generation, offering power network management including load balancing and peak shaving, and grid stabilization with emphasis on frequency and voltage regulation. Additionally, the chapter highlights some of the different pumped hydro energy storage hybrid designs for both off-grid and grid-tied applications while the impact of climate change is discussed.
The ultimate goal of organic solar cells (OSCs) is to deliver cheap, stable, efficient, scalable, and eco-friendly solar-to-power products contributing to the global carbon neutral effort. This work demonstrates great potential to close the lab-to-fab gap of OSCs.

The optimal control of a water reservoir system represents a challenging problem, due to uncertain hydrologic inputs and the need to adapt to changing environment and varying control objectives.

Marc Rosen, Aida Farsi, CHAPTER ONE - Introduction to desalination and sustainable energy, Editor(s): Marc Rosen, Aida Farsi, Sustainable Energy Technologies for Seawater Desalination, Academic Press, 2022, Pages 1-44, ISBN 9780323998727

This chapter introduces key concepts of water desalination systems driven by sustainable energy sources, as we look to meet civilization's water needs through sustainable means - supporting SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation) as well as SDG 7 (Clean and Affordable Energy)
Mitigating and adapting to climate change requires decarbonizing electricity while ensuring resilience of supply, since a warming planet will lead to greater extremes in weather and, plausibly, in pow
A growing number of governments are pledging to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century.

Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment, Volume 102, January 2022

This paper cautions that the adoption of electric vehicles with the aim of reducing greenhouse gas emissions must balance that beneficial effect against increased water consumption. It recommends battery electric vehicles charged by solar energy as the best solution.
