9H — University of Wyoming

LARAMIE, Wyo., February 25, 2021–9H Research Foundation is sponsoring a $5,000 renewable energy design challenge for 31-students at the University of Wyoming. The winners of the competition were announced at the 9H Event hosted by President Seidel and Governor Gordon at the Gateway Center at The University of Wyoming. To drive student innovation, 9H is also funding 7 student engineering groups to design and build solar and energy storage projects. 9H Research Foundation has been working closely with UW’s College of Engineering and Applied Science, specifically Interim Dean Cam Wright, and Senior Design Professors Dr. David Bell, Dr. Jonathan Naughton…


CLIMATEWISDOM™ provides a central location for easily accessing geo-specific Climate Risk Data. This data is needed to identify, evaluate and stress-test the potential financial impacts of climate change on industries, economies, portfolios and assets. It harmonizes transition scenarios like NGFS and IPCC SSPs with the data needed to calculate physical and investment risks. To deliver this service, Riskthinking.AI collects, aligns and algorithmically generates billions of data-points and thousands of derived Climate Risk Datasets covering the entire surface of the earth and spanning from 1850 to 2100. Riskthinking.AI maps climate models, environmental variables, socio-economic pathways, physical asset data, macroeconomic factors and…

LARAMIE, Wyo., February 25, 2021 — The Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium has allocated funds to help sponsor two Mechanical Engineering student teams from the University of Wyoming. The teams are building photovoltaic (PV) prototypes to be used in 9H Research Foundation’s Renewable Energy Facility. The Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium sponsors education and research programs in the state of Wyoming in support of NASA missions, serving as a link between citizens of the state and NASA programs. It is one of 52 consortia representing each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. …


LARAMIE, Wyo., February 25, 2021 — The 9H Research Foundation received shipment of more than 2,000 photovoltaic (PV) modules from First Solar earlier this week. First Solar’s in-kind donation amounts to 0.89MWdc of modules, worth roughly $300,000. The panels are First Solar’s latest Series 6TM advanced thin film solar technology. The 9H Research Foundation will be using these modules to start building a 3MW Solar Student Research Facility to donate over $10 million in clean energy to the University of Wyoming. …


Pledging to go carbon zero is currently all the rage for governments around the world.

Back in October 2018, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) estimated that to have even a 50% chance of keeping global warming in check, global emissions would have to hit net zero by 2050.

In response, a swathe of countries including the United Kingdom, France, Denmark, and New Zealand have made legal commitments to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.

But perhaps most surprisingly of all, in September 2020 China — currently the world’s largest emitter and biggest climate laggard — announced that…


Carbon Emmission

Canada tabled new legislation on November 19th that would force current and future federal governments to set binding climate targets for net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

If it passes, the bill would put the country on equal footing with a swathe of others like China, the UK, New Zealand and France who have recently announced legally binding measures to go carbon neutral within half a century.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau jumped on the idea, stating, “ignoring the risks of climate change isn’t an option. That approach would only make the costs higher and the long-term consequences worse. …


If nothing else, Covid-19 has taught us a hard lesson in radical uncertainty. While one scientific paper back in 2007 warned ominously of a coronavirus “time bomb” from China, no one predicted the devastating health crisis and unprecedented macroeconomic shock that blew through 2020 like a hurricane.

More than six months on from the outbreak, cases are still on the rise in several developed countries. And without evidence-based guidance, policymakers around the world struggle to weigh up the cost of intervention policies. Too strict and they tank the economy. Too mild and mortality skyrockets as ICUs flood.

Policymakers are paralysed…
