In order to prepare for our climate future and hit emissions goals, creative solutions are needed. New technologies such as carbon capture and enhanced storage can help us bridge the gap and imagine new possibilities.
Why the real estate community must consider investing more capital into the climate tech ecosystem—and how some companies are paving the way.
Building electrification is often viewed as a key strategy for transitioning away from fossil fuels. However, at very high levels of renewable deployment, heating electrification's impact on seasonal demand can result in severe load balancing issues.
It is clear that emission reductions alone will not cool our warming planet. A portfolio of carbon capture solutions is necessary—including direct removal from the atmosphere.
