Off-roading with electric engines
When people think of electric engines, they usually think of cars not all the lower-volume vehicles with engines that will need to go electric to meet Government mandated emissions targets such as diggers on building sites, city street sweepers, farming tractors and harvesters and underground mining equipment. Irish start-up Xerotech has created the world’s first and only scalable off-the-shelf energy system for non-road mobile machinery. Xerotech’s battery system has been designed to get around the problem of affordability. Equipment manufacturers can pick and choose different battery, power and thermal components based on the needs of the machine it will power.

A radical plan to address climate change by modifying the atmosphere
Climate change occurs because greenhouse gases trap the sun's energy in our atmosphere, causing that energy to warm the planet. A radical and controversial plan that would artificially modify the Earth's atmosphere to cool the planet is starting to gain traction Solar geoengineering seeks to reflect a small fraction of sunlight back into space, or increase the amount of solar radiation that escapes back into space, to cool the planet. In contrast to carbon geoengineering, solar geoengineering does not address the root cause of climate change. It instead aims to break the link from concentrations to temperatures, thereby reducing some climate damages.
