Untapped solar and wind potential in Swiss mountains
Untapped solar and wind potential in Swiss mountains
Scientists at EPFL and the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF have issued recommendations for what type of renewable energy should be produced in Switzerland's various regions, to help achieve the country's goals of carbon neutrality and energy self-sufficiency. According to a new study, the most effective way for Switzerland to become carbon-neutral and energy self-sufficient is to install a combination of wind turbines and solar panels in its Alpine regions.

Missing Role of Finance in Climate Mitigation Scenarios
Missing Role of Finance in Climate Mitigation Scenarios
Researchers at the University of Zurich show how climate mitigation scenarios can be improved by taking into account that the financial system can play both an enabling or a hampering role on the path to a sustainable economic system. To limit global warming, a profound transformation of energy, production and consumption in our economies is required.

First report of 'Stephanitis lauri' in Catalonia, an insect spreading in the European continent
First report of ’Stephanitis lauri’ in Catalonia, an insect spreading in the European continent
The species Stephanitis lauri -an hemipteran insect that lives on laurel plants- has been identified for the first time in Catalonia, according to an article published in the Boletín de la Asociación Española de Entomología. The populations of this insect, firstly found in the province of Girona and then in the province of Barcelona, are the first ones to confirm the presence of the insect in the Iberian Peninsula.

Water connects surface and subsurface habitats
Collaborative Research Centre "AquaDiva" granted funding for third phase worth 11 million euros by German Research Foundation The " Critical Zone", as it is called, is the porous skin of the Earth, where air, water, rock and organisms interact. It extends from the vegetation, through the soil and rock, down to the groundwater that is sometimes several hundreds of metres deep, and these layers are connected by liquid flows and the transport of materials.
