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.

Dalších deset technologií, které by mohly změnit naše životy

14-07-2017

V roce 2015 generální ředitelství Evropského parlamentu pro parlamentní výzkumné služby (GŘ EPRS) otevřelo novou cestu svou publikací „Deset technologií, které by mohly změnit naše životy – možné dopady a důsledky politik“, ve které každá kapitola zdůrazňuje určitou technologii, její přísliby a možné negativní důsledky a úlohu, kterou by Evropský parlament mohl a měl hrát při utváření tohoto rozvoje. Tato nová studie na tuto práci navazuje a předkládá dalších deset technologií, které budou stále ...

V roce 2015 generální ředitelství Evropského parlamentu pro parlamentní výzkumné služby (GŘ EPRS) otevřelo novou cestu svou publikací „Deset technologií, které by mohly změnit naše životy – možné dopady a důsledky politik“, ve které každá kapitola zdůrazňuje určitou technologii, její přísliby a možné negativní důsledky a úlohu, kterou by Evropský parlament mohl a měl hrát při utváření tohoto rozvoje. Tato nová studie na tuto práci navazuje a předkládá dalších deset technologií, které budou stále více vyžadovat pozornost tvůrců politik. Témata současné studie byla vybrána tak, aby odrážela širokou škálu témat, na která se skupina Hodnocení vědecko-technických možností (STOA) Evropského parlamentu rozhodla zaměřit během osmého volebního období Parlamentu (2014–2019). Cílem této publikace je nejen upozornit na těchto deset konkrétních technologií, ale také podpořit úvahy o dalším technologickém rozvoji, který dosud může být v rané fázi, ale jenž by podobně mohl mít silný dopad na naše životy v blízké budoucnosti nebo z dlouhodobějšího hlediska.

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.
