Storage technology, according to Francesco La Camera, Director-General of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), should be a priority in the coming years to provide flexibility and balance in the renewable energy system. He noted that renewable energy is sporadic and unpredictable, and that the interconnection of grids in different countries makes the system more flexible and balanced for storage purposes.
La Camera also stated that IRENA is collaborating with the Egyptian government to help the transition to clean energy and is following up on numerous orders to develop water desalination projects using renewable energy as well as initiatives to produce hydrogen and green ammonia. He also stated that IRENA would offer an integrated analysis and report on what is happening in the world to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 at the next UN Conference of Parties on Climate Change (COP27) in Sharm El-Sheikh this November.
“When it comes to projects, our plan includes a climate investment platform and funding for the renewable energy transition accelerator, which will play a major role at the COP27,” he said. According to La Camera, the current economic crisis has demonstrated that renewable energy sources are the most flexible and reliable, and that governments must make investment decisions and take prompt steps to promote clean energy and overcome the crisis. He went on to say that the world’s countries require $4.7 trillion per year to change energy systems and stimulate the economy.
Furthermore, he stated that energy generation from renewable sources and energy storage would be the future pillars of energy markets, and that it is vital to develop heating and cooling solutions that employ renewable energy while also increasing energy efficiency. IRENA is working to expedite the transition to clean energy and reduce emissions in Africa, where 100 million people still lack access to basic energy services, and the agency intends to overcome this problem in the coming years.
If there was no need for storing renewable energy, there would be no reason to rely on battery technology, which is both expensive and inefficient. The technology behind batteries is advancing at a rapid rate, and there may come a day in the annals of human history when storing a limitless amount of electricity would seem to be child’s play. In the meanwhile, a discovery made in 2015 pushes humanity in the direction of a future in which it will no longer be necessary to consume fossil fuels. Despite the fact that the finding that neutrinos have mass was discovered a couple of years ago by scientists in Japan and Canada at the same time, the landscape of energy research has already been transformed. We are in need of the appropriate technology in order for us to be able to harness the power of the billions of ethereal particles that impact our globe each and every day.
In spite of the fact that it may seem like something out of a science fiction novel, the technology necessary to gather the kinetic energy in the form of traveling neutrinos and other forms of non-visible radiation and convert it to electricity has already been developed. The feasibility of the idea has been shown in controlled laboratory conditions; the only remaining challenge is to develop neutrinovoltaic technology that is suitable for widespread use. There is no need to store the energy that is created as a result of the ongoing stream of neutrinos since the bombardment of Earth by neutrinos never stops. While the amount of electrical energy acquired from neutrinos and other non-visible radiations remains small, neutrinovoltaic technology is growing in power at the same pace as electronic devices, mobile phones, and even large machinery are getting more energy-efficient.
Even on a small scale, neutrinovoltaic technology has the potential to relieve the burden of storage-dependent renewable energy sources. In the case of a renewable power grid, even if neutrino energy only meets 10% of total energy needs, it still implies that 10% of that system’s electricity will not need to be stored in batteries. The basic beauty of neutrinovoltaic technology is decentralization. While fossil-fuel-generated electricity can only be generated in urban areas, and most homes lack solar panels or wind farms, neutrinovoltaic devices are small enough to be put directly into mobile phones, appliances, cars, and other energy-consuming equipment. There is no need to waste electricity by sending it across town using neutrino energy.
Neutrino energy can be generated continually even when the sun is not shining and the wind is not blowing. Because neutrinos pass through almost any artificial or natural substance with low resistance, neutrinovoltaic devices may be deployed inside, outdoors, and even underwater, making them very adaptable. Neutrinos continue to travel to Earth regardless of climate, making neutrinovoltaic technology humanity’s first totally sustainable energy breakthrough.
The Neutrino Energy Group, which was founded by Holger Thorsten Schubart, a pioneering mathematician and energy scientist, has put itself at the forefront of the creation of tomorrow’s clean energy solutions. The company started out as a partnership between firms in the United States and Germany, but it has since expanded into a much bigger organization that now comprises participants from all around the globe, including both businesses and scientists. This extraordinary partnership has crossed national borders in its pursuit of energy solutions for the benefit of all people on earth. It was previously inconceivable, but today, thanks to the work of the Neutrino Energy Group, mankind has a solution to the current energy problem that has been expected for a very long time and can be relied upon. Neutrinovoltaics is the technology of the future, and the Neutrino Energy Group is living up to its obligations in the here and now.
