TU Delft | Water for Impact at the UN Water Conference in New York
During the plenary opening of the UN2023 Water Conference on March 22nd in New York City, all representatives were asking for more awareness, discussions, and most importantly, #WaterAction. Researchers from the TU Delft | Water for Impact programmes were present in New York to do just that: share knowledge, activitate participants and bring together international water experts to accelerate the search for global solutions.

Rarest extreme rainstorms will become even more intense
Promovendus Gaby Gründemann berekende de regenval in 2071-2100 voor vier toekomstscenario’s, variërend van een wereld waarin de bevolkingsgroei en de fossiele energiebehoefte blijven toenemen tot een wereld die zich focust op duurzaamheid en een dalende CO2-uitstoot. Hoe dan ook zullen zowel de meest zeldzame buien als de jaarlijkse extreme buien in elk scenario heviger worden.

Volcanic rocks solving CO2 problems
What if we could capture CO2 from the atmosphere and permanently store it under the ground in the form of solid minerals? Applied Earth Sciences student Elara Redondo Garcia didn’t think twice when she had to opportunity to go to Iceland, where they are researching CO2 mineral trapping.

20 million EU Grant for research underground heat storage
The EU aims to have a net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) economy by 2050. At present, heating and cooling represent around 50% of the final energy demand in Europe and are for a large part supplied by fossil fuel derived energy. Large scale seasonal heat storage is a key strategy to decarbonize heating in order to achieve EU ambitions, because sustainable sources like geothermal and solar provide a lot of heat in summer, while we need it in winter. The PUSH-IT consortium receives this Horizon Europe grant to demonstrate and develop such heat storage systems. PUSH-IT stands for Piloting Underground Seasonal Heat Storage In geothermal reservoirs.
