It’s no secret that global governments are implementing greenhouse gas policies aimed at reducing CO2 emissions. These policies have a direct impact on the power generation sector as carbon capture and storage technologies are essentially the only option available for fossil-based power generation to drastically reduce their CO2 emissions. So, how will they do it? […]

Hydro-power is often associated with conservative and perhaps stagnant technology development. But, because it has been around for hundreds of years and many countries rely on the output of power, the maintenance and continued support of these plants is critical. Currently, in Iceland 70% of their electricity is produced from hydroelectric power, therefore constant operation […]
