Jani-Petri Martikainen has raised a few concerns after examining in detail the peer-reviewed published article Ram et al. (2018) and the technical report Ram et al. (2017) in his letter Martikainen (2019). However, Martikainen ...
Job creation during the global energy transition towards 100% renewable power system by 2050
Aside from reducing the energy sector's negative impacts on the environment, renewable power generation technologies are creating new wealth and becoming important job creators for the 21st century. Employment creation ...
Assessment of a cost-optimal power system fully based on renewable energy for Iran by 2050 – Achieving zero greenhouse gas emissions and overcoming the water crisis
Transition of Iran's power system from 2015 to 2050 through three scenarios was modelled. Two scenarios present a transition pathway towards a fully renewable run power system with different involved sectors (power only, ...
From hot rock to useful energy: A global estimate of enhanced geothermal systems potential
This study demonstrates the theoretical, technical, optimal economic and sustainable potential of enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) globally. A global estimate of EGS is presented in a 1°×1° spatial resolution. Constructed ...
Pathways to a fully sustainable electricity supply for Nigeria in the mid-term future
Ambitious actions focused on rapid defossilisation of today’s energy systems require greater urgency, in order to avert unmanageable impacts of climate change. Transitioning to a cost-effective and carbon-neutral energy ...
