Chinese tokamak keeps plasma 2.6 times as hot as the Sun for 17 minutes

"...Good news for fusion energy progress and a new world record for the Chinese Academy of Sciences, as its Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST), or "artifical sun," maintains 70 million degrees Celsius (126 million °F) for 1,056 seconds. High-temperature plasma is a critical part of many large-scale fusion energy initiatives, which attempt to replicate some of the conditions that make the Sun a powerful enough fusion reactor to warm our solar system, with the goal of eventually supplying safe, clean energy for humankind. Heat can be viewed as an energetic vibration of atoms, and this vibration becomes so extreme at ultra-high temperatures that atoms begin to randomly smash into one another with enough speed to jam their nuclei together, fusing them together and creating a new atomic element..."

Nailable Timberline Energy Shingles aim to popularize home solar

"...GAF Energy admits that it's not the first to innovate a more fully roof-integrated solar panel system, citing Dow and Tesla as others that have done similar work. However, it does believe the ease with which the Timberline shingles install, combined with GAF's leading place in the roofing market and nationwide installer network, will allow its product to break through in a way that others have not, making residential solar charging more commonplace. "Solar roofs are the future of clean energy, and Timberline Solar is the game-changing innovation that will get us there," declares GAF Energy president Martin DeBono..."

Five future-friendly ways sustainable design can help the planet in 2022 Corporate Knights

"...Against a backdrop of horrific climate disasters, a number of developments in 2021 offered some cause for optimism, from the International Energy Agency’s call to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 to new commitments from global banks and institutional investment funds to decarbonize their holdings. A growing number of cities, including New York, are enacting rules that ban gas hook-ups for new buildings. Meanwhile, in a case that could have long-term implications for energy-inefficient design in the era of climate change, a group of San Francisco condo owners sued a developer for US$10 million because the west- and south-facing units in their all-glass curtain-wall tower overheated so severely..."
