Electric, for sure. Sustainable, it depends. How green is my battery?

E-car batteries are crucial to meet the targets of the Paris Agreement, but can also have a high social and environmental toll. Experts warn of the urgency of a sustainable value chain and recommend an innovative solution: e-vehicles connected to buildings and repurposed batteries, to optimize the energy consumption.

Invisible is better: when sustainable solutions blend into the landscape

Solar panels disguised as ancient Roman tiles or terracotta bricks to match the city skyline. The innovative solutions adopted by the archaeological park of Pompeii and the Portuguese city of Evora pave the way for an inspiring model: turning architectural constraints into assets, boosting heritage and sustainability.

Integrated and multi-vector: the energy systems of the future go local

Fossil fuels still account for over 60% of global electricity generation. Experts warn of a “discouraging trend” but part of the solution might come from “local energy communities”: integrated hubs, optimizing the synergies between different energy vectors and thus cutting CO2 emissions and costs
