The Inflation Reduction Act: what it means for clean energy
15 December, 2022
It is estimated the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) could more than triple US clean energy production, with about 40% of the USA’s energy coming from renewables by 2030, with some 550 GW of renewable capacity added in less than ten years. It also provides a more stable 10-year window for incentives and marks a move away from the “boom and bust” nature of the previous support regime

Recent Mitsubishi successes: incinerator rebuild and compact carbon capture
24 November, 2022
MHIEC (Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Environmental & Chemical Engineering), part of MHI (Mitsubishi Heavy Industries), has received an order from the Nagasaki municipal government for rebuilding and operation & maintenance of the city’s Shin-Higashi (New East) waste-to-energy plant. The order calls for installation of two stoker-type incinerators, collectively capable of processing 210 tonnes per day (tpd), to replace the superannuated Higashi (East) waste-to-energy plant (300 tpd) originally designed and built by MHI and in operation since 1988.
Waste-to-wheels in Germany

Achieving fusion, and what next for First Light?
09 November, 2022
Having attained the major milestone of achieving fusion with its novel projectile-based technology, First Light Fusion is now looking to the next key steps, including a “gain” demonstrator, with more energy out than in, and design of a pilot power plant. First Light is pursuing a unique approach to inertial fusion, in which deuterium-tritium fuel inside a target is compressed using a projectile travelling at tremendous speed, creating the temperatures and densities needed for fusion. First Light believes its technology promises the simplest, fastest and cheapest route to commercial fusion power
