Green Island or Green Hysland (Hydrogen!)
Mallorca is a Spanish island known for its sun, coastline, architecture, wineries, fresh produce farms, and stunning beaches. It is also aspiring to be a self-sufficient green island or perhaps a Green Hysland. In their latest bid to reducing the island's emissions Acciona, Enagas, Hydrogenics, Cemex, the Government's Instituto para la Diversificacion y Ahorro de la Energia (IDAE) are collaborating on a green hydrogen pilot. Once operating it should produce up to 330 tonnes of green hydrogen (via solar power) for industrial energy needs. Any excess could potentially be injected into the gas grid. https://renews.biz/65509/acciona-partners-on-mallorca-green-hydrogen-scheme/

Grid Stability via Data Capability
No-one wants an unstable electricity grid. With more renewables coming on-line every day, system strength and stability relies in part on effective management of inertia.Reactive Technologies have developed a data measurement & analytics tool which provides real-time tracking of grid inertia at a previously unavailable level of granularity and precision.This in turn supports more immediate, targeted and cheaper, system interventions to stabilise the grid.  https://www.reactive-technologies.com/grids/

Energy Smart Farming Community of Practice
Farming is energy intensive and gas, diesel & electricity are not cheap or necessarily emission friendly. But the farming community abounds with innovative approaches to improve energy productivity, reduce costs and emissions. So the establishment of a new Community of Practice, called Energy Smart Farming, provides a way for farmers, service providers, advisors, researchers & community advocates to share energy knowledge, research & solutions. https://extensionaus.com.au/energysmartfarming/

Shower Power - harnessing the heat in your wastewater
Think about the warm water in your shower, dishwasher, washing machine and more. All that heat is wasted as it goes down your drain. It is even worse in hotels or industrial applications like dairies, food manufacturing and breweries. So why not intercept the warm/hot water as it exits the building and before it goes into the sewers? Via a holding tank with a heat pump, you can then extract the heat and re-direct it to where it is needed rather than wasting it - saving money and GHGs .
