Solving the Energy Trilemma

August 11, 2022

Solving the Energy Trilemma
The global climate change summit, COP26, in November last year emphasised the urgent need to keep 1.5 degrees Celsius alive, limit global warming and push for more low-carbon power, as well as renewables. Then prices for energy began to skyrocket in Europe and Asian markets in January due to post-COVID energy bottlenecks. Finally, the recent war in Ukraine has emboldened world leaders’ to prioritise energy security and question where their imported fuels come from.

Space technology ensuring a sustainable planet for future generation

whitePaper | June 28, 2022

Last year, the world watched as billionaires took to the skies and launched themselves into space. Today, the space race has become a phenomenon, providing the ordinary person with a potential opportunity to take an extraordinary spaceflight. But there is more to space than meets the eye – through research and science, space improves people’s lives around the world by contributing to environmental monitoring, natural resource management, weather forecast and climate modelling, and early warning systems to assist in minimising future disasters.

An energy transformation plan for the climate emergency

whitePaper | January 30, 2020

This report presents one strand of the pathway to a genuinely sustainable future. It is not, as so many other reports have been, about “green growth projects”. Rather, the ambition is to propose a quite different way of life that will deliver a different kind of prosperity, one that prioritises wellbeing and builds resilience via a localised circular economy.

Getting airborne – the need to realize the benefits of airborne wind energy for net zero

whitePaper | September 20, 2022

Airborne wind energy (AWE) is wind 2.0 – a game-changing solution accessing the large untapped wind resource potential at heights above those accessed by established wind technology. It enables more energy to be extracted at lower carbon intensity and eventually at lower cost. Europe and other areas in the world need to access all viable natural resources they can, and AWE, alongside established wind technology, should be considered as one of the key solutions to our energy decarbonisation challenge.

Reaching Net-Zero Carbon by 2040:Decarbonizing and Neutralizing the Use Phase of Connected Devices

whitePaper | May 20, 2022

As part of our Climate Pledge commitment to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040, Amazon is working to measure, reduce, and neutralize the emissions across every part of our business. For Amazon Devices, we are integrating carbon reduction strategies across the life cycle of our devices, including materials and manufacturing, transportation, use, and end-of-life phases. This paper focuses on the use phase, which accounts for 10-15% of the overall carbon footprint of rechargeable battery-operated devices and 60-80% of the footprint of plugged-in devices. We believe this phase is an important area of focus, since consumer electronics will always require some amount of electricity to operate. As the world becomes more connected even beyond consumer electronics, we believe that connectivity in itself allows us to rethink how we approach use phase decarbonization for all connected devices.
