Because of this, the past offers little insight into how quickly utilities will adopt the technology, which helps integrate renewables onto the grid, deliver peak capacity without carbon emissions, instantly adjust the frequency of the system and more. As costs have fallen and early adopters liked what they saw from initial trials, though, the cycle from pilot to evaluation to widespread...

This is a pivotal moment in the fight against climate change. Rising global emissions are fueling the need for mitigation, but there are a lot of open questions around how to do that. Net-zero emissions by 2050 has emerged as the target that the world must hit in order to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Policymakers and activists in the U.S. are working to put the net-zero goal into law, and multiple major companies have already pledged to achieve carbon-neutrality. But what will...

Europe, alongside countries such as Japan, is going through a profound demographic shift: stagnating birth rates and increasing life expectancy mean the proportion of older adults is increasing. It is estimated that by 2050, people above 65 years of age will comprise more than 30% of the population of Great Britain, 35% in Germany, and over 40% in Spain. In addition, this age group is increasingly healthy into old age, meaning that even when they move into a care home, they want stimulating...

The perennially popular open-plan interior appeals for allowing natural light to permeate a house or apartment and for making it feel more spacious. Multifunctional rooms that amalgamated all reception rooms first emerged in the late 19th century. But even radically open-plan spaces – espoused by Frank Lloyd Wright and modernist architects in the 1930s – sometimes incorporated sliding doors. Sliding doors and partitions, of course, bring an almost immeasurable number of practical advantages to...
