Barriers to Renewable Energy Technologies https://www.ucsusa.org/clean-energy/renewable-energy/barriers-to-renewable-energy "Renewables still face major obstacles. Some are inherent with all new technologies; others are the result of a skewed regulatory framework and marketplace. This page explores the barriers to renewable energy in detail, with a focus on wind and solar." Climate Solutions: Microgrids https://www.c2es.org/content/microgrids/ "Historically, microgrids generated power using fossil fuel-fired combined heat and power (CHP) and reciprocating engine generators. Today, however, projects are increasingly leveraging more sustainable resources like solar power and energy storage." ____________________ How close are we to colonizing the moon, mapping the human brain and curing cancer?
