In the first half of 2020, lightning struck Vestas for €135m of costs. The company claimed that a ‘limited number of models’ were to blame for the high incidence of lightning, and that it would work on a turbine-by-turbine basis to correct problems. If lightning strikes, what sort of issues can it cause for wind turbines? 

Also next issue, we examine Nova Innovation's development of a tidal-powered electric vehicle charging point and look at what an expansion of hydrogen vehicles could mean for the UK’s renewables capacity.

Plus, we learn about the technology behind salinity gradients, dive into Japan's decision to release more than a million tonnes of "treated" water from Fukushima, and speak to the IASS to learn more about the challenges facing low-income countries post-Covid-19.
