Nuclear Fusion

Nuclear Fusion & the ITER Project by Alberto Loarte Nuclear fusion is the process by which stars produce energy. It involves the fusion of hydrogen nuclei to produce helium. This process transforms the mass of the nuclei into energy, according to the famous equation E=mc2, very efficiently —in fact, it is the most [...]

Local-Scale Microgrids

Advanced electrification for remote urban areas Microgrids are small-scale electrical systems that replicate large electrical systems; both, in the way they are managed and often also in the quality of the energy they generate. So, we differentiate between what at Norvento we call “microgrids” from the small isolated systems that have existed for [...]

Large scale floating wind farms

Cheap and constant energy without visual impact from the shore Everyone is aware that the energy potential of wind blowing out at sea should be harnessed if we want a renewable future. Good locations inland with available wind resource are limited, and wind at sea is more constant and has much more laminal [...]
