A transition to a society-based Green Energy
Green Energy includes renewable energy sources (such as solar energy, wind energy, and energy from biomass) and technologies designed to improve energy efficiency. A transition to a society-based Green Energy is necessary to be self-sufficient, meet the growing global demand for energy, and address the threat of climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions. This transition will require fundamental innovations affecting the world’s energy landscape.
Securing a sustainable energy future
Securing a sustainable energy future implies an energy transition that will require a new generation of business models to develop, optimise, and integrate sustainable energy sources. Because of the intermittency of these sources storage of energy is an important factor for success. This requires innovative batteries and research into hydrogen as an energy source. New technologies need to be integrated into existing power networks and market structures. The design of new forms of energy distribution, energy market structures, and smart grids is necessary to satisfy the energy needs of modern societies.
Antarctica Foundation’s full focus is on green energy
A recent Bloomberg report shows that solar and wind will increase their combined share of global generation capacity to 16% from 3% by 2030. The key driver will be utility-scale solar power plants, as well as the vast adoption of rooftop solar arrays in emerging markets. Given the anticipated spending spree in the sector, investors who choose to “go green” will see their holdings grow along with the demand for energy. This is why Antarctica Foundation’s full focus is on green energy.
