Israel's Technology Ideas to Combat Global Climate Change
2020’s record heatwaves and storms confirm what scientists have long predicted: climate change is well underway and threatens unparalleled destruction.Enter Israel and Hydrogen Technology. When Hydrogen is burned and converted into electricity using a fuel cell, the only by-product of the process is water. There are no destructive Co2 emissions, and one kilogram of hydrogen has as much energy as a gallon of gasoline. This makes hydrogen the ideal replacement for fossil fuels and combatting climate change. Clean Hydrogen is a game-changer - learn about the Israeli companies operating in this arena: https://israeltrade.org.au/2021/07/15/israeli-technology-advancements-to-combat-global-climate-change/

The Anatomy of a Sneaker
The anatomy of a sneaker is really complex, as explained in this TED ED video. Australians call them "runners." The British know them as "trainers." Americans refer to them as "sneakers." Whatever you call them, these shoes are worn by billions of people around the world. So, how can we balance our love of sneakers with the need for sustainability? Check out what this means and what you can do. https://countdown.ted.com/https://www.ted.com/talks/angel_chang_the_wildly_complex_anatomy_of_a_sneaker?

Set & Forget AI System for Microgrids
One of the draw-backs of distributed energy resources (DER's) like rooftop solar on commercial buildings is the voltage volatility caused when trying to export surplus energy back into the grid. To avoid volatility, grid operators often curtail the amount of energy that can be returned - meaning surplus clean energy (and money) is wasted.  Enter EleXsys, and their AI-driven solution, ensuring DER’s don’t overload the system, don’t waste energy & deliver maximum financial & environmental returns to their owners - be that IKEA or a local  community micro-grid.
