New Simulation Shows Possibility of 100% Renewable Energy Worldwide
Nov 13, 2016
<h5>A pure renewable world is at our fingertips. Researchers at the Lappeenranta University of Technology in Finland have developed the first ever model depicting a 100% global renewable energy system, structured into 145 separate regions as part of 9 major world regions.<br/></h5>
