Win-win for home and grid
Solar systems on the roofs of residential buildings often produce energy precisely when the tenants can't actually use it. Stationary batteries enable this energy to be utilized in the evening, at night or on a rainy day. A research project at Empa is investigating whether the use of stationary batteries makes economic sense for the consumer while at the same time offering advantages for energy suppliers.

Ice Ages triggered when tropical islands and continents collide
Mt. Bromo on the island of Java, Indonesia. An ongoing collision between a continental plate and this arc of volcanic islands is exposing rocks that take up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which tends to cool Earth. In earlier eras, such collisions in the tropics led to global ice ages.

Climate Scientists Partner with San Francisco to be Ready for Future Storms
Climate Scientists Partner with San Francisco to be Ready for Future Storms
Berkeley Lab climate modeling techniques can assess how global warming will affect intensity of storms The San Francisco Bay Area has been pummeled this winter by storms packed with moisture from atmospheric rivers. Formed when atmospheric water vapor is pushed across the Pacific Ocean by strong winds, atmospheric rivers deliver much of the Bay Area's precipitation.

The effects of climate change on water shortages
The effects of climate change on water shortages
In Jordan, one of the most water-poor nations, predictions of future droughts depend on the scale of climate change. Without reducing greenhouse gases the future looks dry, but researchers offer some hope. If global temperatures continue to rise, rainfall will increasingly become a beast of extremes: long dry spells here, dangerous floods there - and in some places, intense water shortages.
