Powering Europe with Africa’s Sunshine

Energy Mega-Projects that Links Continents In the global race to stop climate change, ditching fossil fuels as energy source is the number one priority. The European Union plans to cut at least 40% of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, and 80-95% by 2050. At present, Europe imports 60% of its energy in the form [...]

Recycled Fuels

Waste used for transportation  It is undeniable that we are facing a mobility paradigm shift. The fuel model based in technical and economic monopoly of fossil resources ­─above all diesel and gasoline─ seems to be ending and alternatives based in renewable sources show up continuously. These technologies are more efficient and cause less [...]

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 [...]
