Capacity factors for solar and wind power in the latest DST release

wind power

A new release of the S2S4E Decision Support Tool sees the addition of two new energy indicators for the solar and wind energy sectors.

It is well known that renewable energy generation depends on the meteorological conditions, such as wind speed for wind energy and solar radiation for solar energy production. Another important factor affecting how much power can be produced is the installed capacity of the power plant, e.g. the number and type of installed wind turbines.

Teaching the young generation about renewable energy

S2S4E Drawing Challenge

S2S4E encourages children to learn about renewable energy through the Clean Energy Drawing Challenge launched during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The European Green Deal calls for a carbon-neutral Europe by 2050. This is only possible with a rapid transition to renewable energy, and giving up our fossil fuel dependence. The young generation will have to lead this transition in the near future. Teaching children about renewable energy is thus more urgent than ever.
