Technology developed by carbon dioxide separation specialist Carbon Clean Solutions is being used at a 10MW coal plant in India, capturing 97% of its emissions at a fraction of the cost. Julian Turner talks to CEO Aniruddha Sharma about revolutionising the carbon capture and utilisation industry.
The proposed 3,200MW nuclear power plant at Hinkley Point in Somerset could be a defining step on China’s journey to becoming the world’s leading exporter of affordable civil nuclear tech. Julian Turner analyses the £18bn project and traces China’s ascendency as a purveyor of nuclear power.
While wave energy represents a huge source of renewable energy, it is yet to make the impact of wind and solar. But could using new digital technologies help ocean power achieve its potential? Shalinee Kishore, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Lehigh University, explains to Abi Millar how new research into cyber-physical integration could unlock its commercial potential.

In 2012, a new campaign was formed in the US to spearhead the movement to divest in fossil fuels. Fossil Free, a project of 350.org, has since grown exponentially, claiming last year that organisations – ranging from healthcare, religious groups, universities and local governments – had agreed to divest $50bn. Gary Peters reports.
Heralded as the most important semiconductor since silicon, gallium nitride holds potential for many important applications, such as LEDs, and could be the key material for the next generation of high-frequency, high-power transistors. Ross Davies asks what all the fuss is about?
Plans in Cumbria to build Europe’s largest power plant have been cemented after Toshiba and GDF Suez signed a deal to develop the site. But big questions remain over the design of the plant and the future of the nuclear power industry in the UK.
Germany has witnessed a surge in renewable technology ever since the decision in 2011 to do away with nuclear power. Critics however, doubt the country will be able to meet ambitious C02 unless coal can be cut out of the equation, GlobalData Senior Power Analyst Chiradeep Chatterjee reports.
