SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) announced that starting in 2025, all new vehicles ordered as company cars will be emission free.* Making a fleet of 27,000 cars more carbon neutral will move SAP closer to its own ambitious climate targets and complements the company’s move to make sustainability central to its solution portfolio. As world and business …

The U.S. transportation industry is the nation’s largest generator of greenhouse gases, accounting for nearly one-third of climate-warming emissions. To move towards a clean-energy future, developing zero-emissions technologies for heavy-duty vehicles is critical. A new partnership comprising Los Alamos National Laboratory, Advent Technology Holdings Inc., Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) …

Artificial Intelligence can sustain the environment by helping to reduce GHG emissions and optimize the use of natural resources. However, AI can have unintended consequences – such as by increasing demand and thus increasing carbon footprint. This four-step plan can ensure AI can be deployed in a responsible way. With Artificial Intelligence (AI), a software …

  A new study from researchers at MIT uncovers the kinds of infrastructure improvements that would make the biggest difference in increasing the number of electric cars on the road, a key step toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation. The researchers found that installing charging stations on residential streets, rather than just in central …

Country on track to meet ambitious climate goals   The installation of the 1,000th ABB fast charger in Norway represents a key milestone for the country in its ambitious journey towards achieving a zero-emission economy. Norway’s ambitious plans to move away from fossil fuels include targets to cut CO2 emissions by as much as 55 …

As urbanization continues to take hold and cities face challenges to become more sustainable and livable, urban planning and operations strategies must adapt. The current pandemic has changed the way we live, accelerating cities’ future vision as a necessity of the present and what it means to live in a connected and resilient urban environment. …

Global technology company ABB and Hydrogen Optimized have agreed to jointly explore the development of large-scale green hydrogen production systems connected to the electrical grid to offer a clean, sustainable and affordable energy source. Hydrogen Optimized has ambitions to use its high current water electrolysis technology at scale to produce green hydrogen for emerging clean …

Big data can help scientists chart not only the degradation of the environment but also help achieve sustainability, according to a new paper. Lead author Rebecca Runting from the University of Melbourne’s School of Geography says that while we currently have an unprecedented ability to generate, store, access, and analyze data about the environment, these …

As electric vehicles rapidly grow in popularity worldwide, there will soon be a wave of used batteries whose performance is no longer sufficient for vehicles that need reliable acceleration and range. But a new study shows that these batteries could still have a useful and profitable second life as backup storage for grid-scale solar photovoltaic …

Artificial intelligence has become a focus of certain ethical concerns, but it also has some major sustainability issues. Last June, researchers at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst released a startling report estimating that the amount of power required for training and searching a certain neural network architecture involves the emissions of roughly 626,000 pounds of carbon …
