Queen's researchers propose re-thinking renewable energy strategy
Researchers at Queen’s University suggest that policy makers examine greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions implications when replacing fossil fuel sources with windmills, solar panels and other sources of renewable energy.
Their recommendations could be used to help policy makers restructure renewable energy production in a way that will optimize greenhouse gas emission reductions.
“The energy industry is expanding so rapidly that the dynamic nature of greenhouse gas emissions could pass a tipping point in the climate system if we’re not careful,” says Mechanical and Materials Engineering Professor Joshua Pearce, lead researcher on the study.
