La sombra tóxica del coche eléctrico: ¿quién va a reciclar esa montaña de pilas?

Mientras los fabricantes de vehículos eléctricos se esfuerzan por aumentar la duración de sus baterías, otras empresas desarrollan la tecnología necesaria para reciclar el aluvión de acumuladores gastados que se avecina. En la Unión Europea, actualmente, solo se reciclan el 5 % de las baterías de litio que salen al mercado. Se estima que el sector del reciclaje de baterías de litio crecerá a una tasa del 22,1 % anual hasta alcanzar los 23.720 millones de dólares en el 2030.

New York directs $4.2m to EV infrastructure development

The EV charging stations will be installed along New York State thruways to enable EV owners to drive for lengthy periods without the need to exit highways in search of charging stations. The investment will also cover installation of fast charging infrastructure at commuter parking lots. The aim is to encourage consumer adoption of electric vehicles in order to reduce carbon emissions. New York has a target to reduce emissions by 40% by 2030.

Australian Renewable Energy Agency Launches $7 Million Initiative For Renewable Grid Stability

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency has this week launched a $7 million funding initiative that is designed to test and prove how renewable energy technologies can better provide grid stability and security services. Over the past few years, the share of electricity generation in Australia has seen a marked sea change, steadily moving away from the country’s traditional reliance on coal-powered generation and natural gas. States like South Australia and Victoria have begun ramping up their renewable energy capacity, but this has in turn shifted the balance away from synchronous generators towards variable energy sources like wind and solar.

Internet Insecurity

Here’s the brutal truth: It doesn’t matter how much your organization spends on the latest cybersecurity hardware, software, training, and staff or whether it has segregated its most essential systems from the rest. If your mission-critical systems are digital and connected in some form or fashion to the internet (even if you think they aren’t, it’s highly likely they are), they can never be made fully safe. Period.
