Technology

The drive to green our energy systems and economy involves a wide range of technologies. New technologies are needed to reduce the cost of renewable energy so it can replace fossil sources on an ever greater scale. The growing output of renewable wind and solar needs to be dovetailed into our energy system, requiring energy storage technologies as well as smart grids, renewable fuels and smart strategies for matching energy supply and demand. In every sector of the economy innovation is underway to use more energy ever more efficiently. The transition from fossil resources to biomass requires new technologies, as do CO2 capture, storage and useful application.
