Solar energy is a clean, renewable source of electricity that could potentially play a significant part in fulfilling the world’s energy requirements, but there are still some challenges to fully capitalizing on this potential. Researchers looked into some of the issues that hamper the uptake of solar energy and proposed different policies to encourage the use of this technology. More
The EU Commission published its Second Clean Air Outlook (COM(2021)3) in January 2021, updating the First Clean Air Outlook from 2018. The new report examines the scope for further reductions in future European air pollution, taking into account the measures proposed by Member States in their National Air Pollution Control Programmes and more ambitious measures to tackle climate change.
