This study assessed the hydropower potential of a mountain watershed within the Sunkoshi River basin in Sindupalchok, Nepal, utilizing Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) hydrological model. Topographical, soil and land use, meteorological, and discharge data were employed to characterize the study...

As decarbonisation of the power sector is essential to achieve Japan’s target of net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050, it becomes crucial to address how the electricity system incorporates short- and long-term variability in the power output via renewable energy. In this paper, we developed six scenarios for 100% renewable energy in...

Japan has adopted several policies that signal its intent to rely on hydrogen to achieve net-zero climate goals. However, many of those same policies are unclear about its support for a transition to green hydrogen. Relying on gray and blue hydrogen without a transition to green hydrogen will harm the climate. It will also result in several other...
