Creating nature-positive energy in the Silicon Age

Creating nature-positive energy in the Silicon Age

Dating back to our early days as hunter-gatherers, humans have had a long and complicated relationship with the environment. Nature has provided us with the resources needed to sustain human progress, however this has taken a toll on the environment. We’ve exploited, traded and profited from natural resources that we’ve always assumed are ours for the taking. Moulding and reshaping the environment to create energy has been our biggest business venture yet, but this relationship is about to change... Solarplaza's Leoncio David Montemayor Rodriguez recaps the Blockchain2Energy Asia conference in November 2018 and explores the potential for digital tools, like blockchain, to transform the way we do business with the environment.

'Renewing' the source of America's energy

After nearly 20 years of steady growth, US CO2 emissions from energy took a sharp and unexpected dive in 2007. Experts generally attribute this decrease to the onset of the GFC and to a huge surge in cheap natural gas. However, those same experts have overlooked another key factor: the rise in renewable energy production from sources like wind and solar, which expanded substantially over the same 2007–2013 timeframe. Marius Schneider, Gernot Wagner, Jonathon Camuzeaux and Adrian Muller use a method called decomposition analysis to find out just how much renewables contributed to this dive.
