What if hydrogen could help decarbonise transport?

22-11-2019

Cheap hydrogen produced with excess electricity from fluctuating renewable energy sources such as wind could help fuel-cell technology to break into the mainstream. This could at the same time further boost the competitiveness of wind and solar energy production

What if we let consumer electricity prices fluctuate?

10-01-2019

Electricity production from renewable sources such as wind and solar energy is expanding rapidly in Europe and around the world. However, integrating these fluctuating sources into the grid is increasingly becoming a challenge for grid operators that need to match electricity supply with demand. Switching over to a new electricity market system where the demand would better adapt to the supply could be crucial for the success of the transition towards a low-carbon society.

What if we were to travel on levitating trains?

12-04-2018

Magnetic levitation-based transport might be about to enter our lives, providing for faster, safer and more energy-efficient journeys. As it will enable longer distances to be covered more rapidly and cleanly, could it affect where we choose to live?

What if all our meat were grown in a lab?

17-01-2018

Laboratory meat is grown from a small number of cells taken from a live animal and placed in a growth medium in a bioreactor where they proliferate independently. If meat cultured in this way became widely available, it could significantly alleviate the environmental problems currently caused by livestock production - such as greenhouse gas emissions and nitrogen pollution of waterways - without requiring humans to alter their consumption patterns. This publication provides an overview of the potential ...

Laboratory meat is grown from a small number of cells taken from a live animal and placed in a growth medium in a bioreactor where they proliferate independently. If meat cultured in this way became widely available, it could significantly alleviate the environmental problems currently caused by livestock production - such as greenhouse gas emissions and nitrogen pollution of waterways - without requiring humans to alter their consumption patterns. This publication provides an overview of the potential impacts of laboratory meat on environment, public health and farming, and makes suggestions for anticipatory policy-making in this area.

Dix autres technologies qui pourraient changer nos vies

14-07-2017

En 2015, la direction générale des services de recherche parlementaire du Parlement européen (DG EPRS) a ouvert la voie à l’innovation par l’intermédiaire de sa publication intitulée «Dix technologies qui pourraient changer nos vies: impacts potentiels et conséquences des politiques», dont chaque chapitre met en avant une technologie particulière, ses promesses et ses possibles conséquences négatives, ainsi que le rôle que le Parlement européen pourrait et devrait jouer dans l’orientation de ces ...

En 2015, la direction générale des services de recherche parlementaire du Parlement européen (DG EPRS) a ouvert la voie à l’innovation par l’intermédiaire de sa publication intitulée «Dix technologies qui pourraient changer nos vies: impacts potentiels et conséquences des politiques», dont chaque chapitre met en avant une technologie particulière, ses promesses et ses possibles conséquences négatives, ainsi que le rôle que le Parlement européen pourrait et devrait jouer dans l’orientation de ces avancées. La présente étude poursuit sur la même lancée en présentant dix autres technologies qui exigeront une attention accrue de la part des responsables politiques. Les sujets de cette nouvelle étude ont été choisis de telle sorte qu’ils reflètent les nombreux thèmes sur lesquels le panel de la STOA a décidé de se concentrer dans le cadre du huitième mandat du Parlement (2014-2019). L’objectif de cette publication n’est pas uniquement d’attirer l’attention sur ces dix technologies en particulier: il consiste également à promouvoir une réflexion plus poussée sur ces avancées technologiques qui n’en sont peut-être encore qu’à leurs débuts, mais qui pourraient tout de même avoir d’importantes répercussions sur nos vies dans un avenir proche ou lointain.

What if your personal health tracker could save your life?

09-06-2017

Through advances in technology, big data has become a major asset and can open up numerous opportunities in all areas, but how can we use this in the context of health care and ensure it benefits everyone?

What if we were to build skyscrapers from wood?

03-04-2017

Can new technologies contribute to a revival of wood as a source for biomass and construction material, and play a leading role in the fight against climate change? Wood has been part of human civilisation for many thousands of years, playing a key role as fuel or construction material, as well as a material for the manufacture of furniture, machinery, means of transport and everyday objects.

What if electric cars became an affordable and convenient way to travel?

07-12-2016

Are electric cars on the verge of becoming the norm, should we encourage this transition, and what would be the consequences for the environment, the automobile industry and our electricity grid? Over the past century, cars have become an integral part of our society. They generally offer greater flexibility than alternative modes of transport, and they are affordable to a large proportion of people. Ever since cars were first mass-produced, they have almost exclusively been powered by ICEs (internal ...

Are electric cars on the verge of becoming the norm, should we encourage this transition, and what would be the consequences for the environment, the automobile industry and our electricity grid? Over the past century, cars have become an integral part of our society. They generally offer greater flexibility than alternative modes of transport, and they are affordable to a large proportion of people. Ever since cars were first mass-produced, they have almost exclusively been powered by ICEs (internal combustion engines), which burn fossil fuels, such as petrol and diesel, to provide the energy required to turn the cars’ wheels and perform auxiliary tasks. However, in recent years concerns about climate change and dependence on oil have led to a great deal of effort and attention being invested in developing alternative ways of providing this energy.
