The Document Library

category

If you’ve browsed through our continuously updated documents, you’ll have appreciated their breadth of scope and their seriousness.

We have peer reviewed international references that are often overlooked in mainstream media and other climate sites.

We have documents that criticise things that haven’t worked, and since we’ve concentrated on science and tried to factor out ideology, some of our documents may seem controversial.

Eight documents in the library in the category Promising Technology

Promising Technology: Goals can be achieved using primarily tested understood technology. Nevertheless, there are developments on the horizon which if proven viable within cost and timescale constraints, should simplify future success or increase the cost effectiveness, while increasing risk of success. As we advance in time, validation needs keep a close watch on decisions and rapidly correct projects that do not meet the expectations.

US commitment to COP22. This document lays out a strategy to deeply decarbonize the U.S. economy by 2050. This document has been presented immediately after the US 2016 election results. At this point in time, little is known about the future of these very worthwhile commitments. moreless

An international team of scientists suggests that we must ramp up energy production by nuclear power if we are to succeed in warding off the worst effects of climate change. Writing in the International Journal of Global Energy Issues, the team suggests that beginning in 2020 we could achieve an annual electricity output of 20 terawatts without needing to develop carbon dioxide trapping and storage technology for the tens of billions of tons of emissions that would otherwise drive global warming to catastrophic levels. moreless

In the next 30 years we expect to see substantial change in energy systems as the lifetime of existing plants ends and new plants are built with the EPA goals in mind. Replacement systems will have to enter a new operational paradigm in which integrated industrial-scale systems might provide the optimum way forward. An interesting view of future energy systems architecture. Does not take into consideration US political changes. moreless

High temperature gas cooled reactors have the potential to make the recovery of uranium from unconventional ores energy neutral, a four-year multinational International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) research project has found.Energy neutrality is reached if the energy produced from the extracted uranium is equal to or larger than the energy required for primary ore processing, uranium extraction, conversion, enrichment and fuel production. moreless
