Biden moves to boost clean energy through economic investment in infrastructure, innovation
One of the goals of US President Biden’s pledge to ‘Build Back Better’ is to create a pollution-free power sector by 2035. The expanded production and use of hydrogen will play a major role towards this end.
Decarbonisation and digitalisation: a partnership of equals
Decarbonisation and digitalisation go hand-in-hand as data and technology will be key to advancing and successfully participating in the decarbonised, more complex, and decentralised energy system of the future. But there is still much to be done to bring global energy assets into the digital era.
Cutting carbon in power transmission
