Navegando la descarbonización en la minería
Reflejando la evolución de la Revolución Industrial, el viaje de exploración científica de los temas del cambio climático comenzó a principios del siglo XIX. Cien años más tarde, en la década de 1930, Thomas Edison expresó su preocupación por el cambio climático y destacó la necesidad de la energía renovable. Otro siglo después, la necesidad de tomar medidas para hacer frente al cambio climático mundial es tan apremiante como siempre.

If Decarbonization is the Moon Shot, How Do We Build the Rocket Ship?

In the early 1960s, life was pretty simple, continuing much the same as it had for decades. There were shiny new automobiles and new music, airplanes flew nonstop across the oceans, and new buildings became taller and more impressive. But few people had yet dreamed of space travel.

Navigating Decarbonization in Mining
Mirroring the evolution of the Industrial Revolution, the journey of scientific exploration of climate change issues began in the early 19th century. A hundred years later, in the 1930s, Thomas Edison voiced concerns about climate change and highlighted the need for renewable energy. Another century later, the need for action to address global climate change is as pressing as ever.

Communications Are Critical to Bridging the Digital Divide
There is no doubt that advanced communication networks are changing how we interact with data, technology and one another. New levels of connectivity are giving us the ability to create, share and analyze information, creating layers of input and insight that deepen our experiences, making them richer, more tangible and more valuable than ever before. This has never been more apparent than during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is driving entire communities to move their lives online, from classes to doctor appointments to the 9-5 workday.

5 Reasons Why Battery Storage will take off at Southeast Asia’s Gas-Fired Facilities
How will Southeast Asia’s* electric utility market evolve as it emerges from the fall out and impact of COVID-19 on the global economy? Already facing what was predicted as moderate GDP growth rates and a slowdown in the growth of demand for electricity, the region could also be coping with increased pressure to lower electricity rates and sustained pressure to broaden the energy mix, transitioning to cleaner forms of generation.
