Geothermal Well Battery

Geothermal energy company Fervo Energy have discovered a way to utilise a geothermal well as a battery. By drilling cracks into geothermal hard rock, pumping lots of water in and sealing the well, the water can later be released at high pressure, allowing energy to be delivered at high output at times when renewables are generating low output.

IPCC AR6 Synthesis Report

The IPCC released its sixth report, a synthesis report of all its previous reports, updated with the latest data on climate change. It shows that we are currently on track for 3.2°C warming. It states starkly that "the level of greenhouse gas emission reductions this decade largely determine whether warming can be limited to 1.5°C or 2°C" and "The choices and actions implemented in this decade will have impacts now and for thousands of years".
