This, is The World’s Largest Concentrated Solar Power Plant | Systemic Innovation & Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

The world’s largest concentrated solar power plant, Shams 1, launched on Sunday, representing a major milestone in the development of renewable energy in the Middle East. Taking three years to build, the $600m plant is located in Abu Dhabi’s western region, the heart of the UAE’s hydrocarbon industry. At full capacity, the 100 megawatt Masdar, Total and Abengoa joint-project will power thousands of homes in the United Arab Emirates and displace 175,000 tons of CO2 a year.

EU Opens Up Access to Scientific Research | Wall Street Journal

EU Opens Up Access to Scientific Research | Wall Street Journal | Systemic Innovation & Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

New scientific research must be published for free online, the vice-president of the European Commission said, in a move designed to increase the knowledge pool open to small business and lead to more innovative products.

 

All scientists receiving European Union funding will have to publish their results in an open-access format, Neelie Kroes, the commissioner responsible for Europe’s digital agenda, said Monday in Stockholm.  Ms. Kroes also  launched the global Research Data Alliance — a group committed to pooling and co-ordinating scientific data so it can be shared better.

 

Opening up scientific research is good for small business, said Victor Henning, CEO of British startup Mendeley, which aims to make academic research more connected. He has noticed the demand for access to academic research from small businesses.

 

Where universities and big companies subscribe to paid-for journals, the costs of subscriptions could be prohibitive for small business, Mr. Henning said, so the commission’s move opens up knowledge not previously available.

 

About 90% of academic research is still published in the subscription model, Mr. Henning said.

 

“Mendeley was founded to help us as academics but access is a problem that you don’t only get in academia. We have NGOs, research labs, pharma companies using Mendeley to co-ordinate research.”

Alois Clemens's insight:

Open access science is a fundamental need for pluralistic innovation and good use and building of all kind of capacities. Especially for SME and non university research. Good EU initiative.
