To slow down the accelerating pace of climate change, scientists are working on radical geoengineering technologies like space mirrors, ocean iron fertilization, and cirrus cloud thinning to tweak the earth’s climate system. But a new study published in the journal Risk Analysis finds that none of these human interventions are risk free. Instead, “they merely shift risk or redistribute it,” says lead author Benjamin Sovacool.
Since its start in 2020, tourism was one of the hardest-hit sectors by the Covid-19 outbreak at the global level. Currently, tourism SMEs are facing an acute liquidity crisis, with losses that have reached 85% for hotels, as well as for tour…
The CET is very excited to participate in the GeoEngineering and Negative Emission Pathways in Europe project, or as we call it, The GENIE Project. The EU-funded GENIE project will explore the environmental, technical, social, legal, ethical and…
Great news! Article written by George Xydis, Ángel Luis Avilés Orgaz and Jörn Böttcher on 'Solar-powered golf buggies charging on the road' has been picked up by the acclaimed PV magazine - perhaps the best known solar energy magazine in the world.
The project focus on the concept of smart cities/villages and the understanding of this concept by the municipalities who are the ones implementing smart solutions in their environment.

Europe has more than enough room for far more wind turbines than are currently being erected. Even without disturbing people, animals and nature. A new international research project based at Aarhus BSS in Herning shows that the potential is huge. The researchers are now searching for the best locations.
Benjamin Sovacool, Gerardo Zarazua de Rubens and Lance Noel have put together a policy brief with new analyses and recommendations deriving from their study in Nature Energy earlier this year.
Two CET researchers will participate in and present at the 6th Hellenic Forum for Science Technology and Innovation held in Athens, Greece, 10-13 July 2018.
