Seaweed to Power a Car : Each year, 25 million tons of seaweed is harvested, most of which is in Asia and used for human consumption and cosmetics. But what about using it to power our vehicles ? Danish scientists recently announced they have used a seaweed fuel to power an automobile, achieving speeds of 50 mph (80 kph), using a biofuel created by a Dutch company. “We’ve looked to see if seaweed fuel works in the same way as ordinary fuel and what its effect is on the motor,” Jaap van Hal, who led the research team, told Noordhollands Dagblad.

The US government has just approved the construction of what will be the largest solar project in the nation and the 8th largest in the world.

This week, the Department of the Interior (DOI) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced the approval of a proposal to construct and operate a 690-MW photovoltaic solar electric generating facility in Nevada about 30 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

US Secretary of the Interior David L. Bernhardt marked the Record of Decision (ROD) for Solar Partners XI, LLC to develop the evaluated $1 billion Gemini Solar Project expected to produce enough power to control 260,000 homes in the Las Vegas region and potential vitality advertises in Southern California.

The on-site construction workforce is anticipated to average 500 to 700 construction workers, with a peak of up to 900 workers at any given time, supporting up to an additional 1,100 jobs in the local community and injecting an estimated $712.5 million into the economy in wages and total output during construction.

The project is expected to be constructed in two phases. The first phase of power could come on-line in 2021 with final completion as early as 2022. Federal revenues are expected to be more than $3 million annually to the US Treasury.

The task is additionally expected to create sustainable power that would every year balance nursery outflows of around 83,000 vehicles (384,000 metric huge amounts of carbon dioxide identical). Despite the fact that the ROD incorporated a few operational specifications to decrease the office’s effects on local vegetation and natural life, for example, the desert tortoise, broad long haul observing will be required so as to look at extra adjustment strategies that could be utilized to diminish potential ecological effects.

“Despite the challenges of the coronavirus, we’re pleased to see that Nevada will soon be home to one of the biggest solar projects in the world,” said Abigail Ross Hopper, President and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association. “The solar industry is resilient and a project like this one will bring jobs and private investment to the state when we need it most.”

The Gemini facilities are set to be built and managed by Australia’s Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners and California-based Arevia Power across up to 7,100 acres of land.

“We are very pleased to have reached a satisfying and final seal of approval from the Department of the Interior and the Bureau of Land Management so that we can now take Gemini forward with confidence,” said David Scaysbrook, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Quinbrook. “This final decision officially clears the pathway for Quinbrook, and our development partners at Arevia, to accelerate completion of detailed project designs and procurement plans for one of the world’s largest renewables projects ever undertaken.

“Gemini offers the chance to grandstand, at an uncommon scale, what we accept to be one of the most encouraging mechanical advances in coupling battery stockpiling to utility scale sun based capacity to deliver minimal effort sustainable power source over the long haul,” he included. “Gemini will profit all Nevadans by supporting employments, invigorating the nearby economy and catching the state’s bounteous sun oriented assets to convey minimal effort, inexhaustible capacity to NV Energy clients.”

Toyota plans to construct a model “city of the future”

Japanese automaker Toyota plans to construct a model ‘city of the future’ from the ground up at the base of Japan’s Mount Fuji. The project – called “Woven City,” will be a “living laboratory” and serve as the company’s testing grounds for new technologies. It will be where designers, engineers, researchers, and technicians work together on self-driving systems, smart homes, robotics, and artificial intelligence (AI). Toyota’s Woven City will be a model for creating “smart cities” worldwide. A smart city is an area developed with systems, connected by high-speed internet and powered by data and sensors, that can improve the living conditions (such as energy, transportation, and health) of its inhabitants. Smart cities eliminate the causes of human-induced pollution, reduce traffic and mobility issues, and create new ways for internet technology to enhance everyday life. The site covers around 70 hectares (175-acre) of land and is designed to accommodate approximately 2,000 people. Toyota employees, as well as visiting researchers, would be among the residents. The city will even have its own fire and emergency services, police officers, and schools.
Residences will be equipped with the latest in human support technologies, such as in-home robotics to assist with daily living. The homes will use sensor-based AI to check occupants’ health, take care of basic needs and enhance daily life, creating an opportunity to deploy connected technology with integrity and trust, securely and positively. Toyota
And of course, renewable power will generate all of the city’s electrical needs. Hydrogen fuel technology and solar panels on every rooftop will feed electricity into the city’s primary grid. Woven City is designed to be fully sustainable. All the buildings will be made of wood, with traditional Japanese wood joinery. Source: IntelligentLiving
