World first fossil free steel plant
The global production of zero emissions steel has taken a massive step forward, with a world leading Swedish project completing the construction of a world-first fossil-free steel pilot plant in Luleå, Sweden.Three Swedish firms came together to form an innovative partnership around the HYBRIT project, which has integrated the supply of raw material, steel processing and energy supplies into a single project, that could be the gateway to the decarbonisation of the currently coal dependent steel industry.https://reneweconomy.com.au/world-first-fossil-free-steel-manufacturing-plant-completed-in-sweden-36577/

A smarter energy pump
One machine to provide all your heating, cooling and warm water and one machine that makes the owner a cleaner person when he or she must use energy , One machine to replace 3.6 billion machines that produce waste working in a cool or a heat mode  . One machine that stops people  being polluters unknowingly, and one machine that was available in 2003  to lower energy use and stop emissions to our environment.  A machine in circular does not waste.  What you pay for it can offset your cost to stay warm and cool.

Combining wind, solar and energy storage
French renewable energy developer Neoen has filed its development application for the huge $3 billion Goyder South wind, solar and storage project in South Australia which includes a proposed big battery that is nearly 10 times bigger than the expanded “Tesla big battery” at Hornsdale.The Goyder South Hybrid Renewable Energy Facility is proposed to combining wind, solar and energy storage in one integrated project. The facility will be capable of delivering a steady, reliable, dispatchable output of power throughout the day and night.https://reneweconomy.com.au/neoen-files-plans-for-3bn-wind-and-solar-farm-with-battery-10-times-bigger-than-hornsdale-67395/

A House Brick as a Battery?
The humble house brick has been turned into a battery that can store electricity, raising the possibility that buildings could one day become literal powerhouses. The new technology exploits the porous nature of fired red bricks by filling the pores with tiny nanofibres of a conducting plastic that can store charge. The first bricks store enough electricity to power small lights. But if their capacity can be increased, they may become a low-cost alternative to the lithium-ion batteries currently used. Strictly speaking, the power bricks are supercapacitors rather than batteries. Supercapacitors store electricity as a static charge in solids.
