The Data Governance is the set of rules defining the data: property, storage, protection, and in case of exploitation how it should be shared or rewarded.

Definition Water Desalination is the conversion of sea water into potable water. Desalination is a process commonly used in desert regions which can not use rivers, lakes, or ground waters as viable source for populations. Removing the salts and other minerals from seawater will be the only source of potable water for 15% of the world population …
Carbon Storage is the isolation of gases responsible of the greenhouse effect from the atmosphere.
The goal is to reverse the atmosphere pollution by injecting captured Dioxyde (CO2) underground in reservoirs for long-term storage or to be re-used in a close future.
Once injected underground, the Dioxyde (CO2) can either:
Deteriorate over a long period of time
Participate to Enhanced Oil Recovery Operations (EOR)
Be later transformed in plastics, fuel, concrete
Carbon Capture concept is to seize gases responsible of the greenhouse effect, preventing their increasing presence in our atmosphere.
From all the gases responsible of the global warming, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is of course the main culprit, the reason behind the name of Carbon Capture.
Carbon Capture can occur in two situations, directly from the air, or from industrial processes. It is in this second case Carbon Capture is the most efficient by reducing up to 90% of CO2 emissions from a plant.
The Windmill concept is the conversion of wind energy into electricity.
Blowing, the wind presses the blades of the windmill which creates a slow movement of rotation. This rotation is then multiplied to drive a generator at high speed thus, creating electricity.
The electricity later needs some transformation before being injected in the grid.
The largest windmill having a production capacity of 15MW, most of the time, projects are the installation of windmills in farm counting between 10 to 250 units.
The Solar Thermal concept to produce energy, not to be confused with the Solar Photovoltaic, is the conversion of sunlight heat into electricity.
The thermodynamic principle at the heart of Solar Thermal facilities is the same across the different types of plant:
Sunlight rays are concentrated to heat fluid containers
High temperature fluid then supplies steam generators
Steam produced drives turbines which generate electricity
The Solar Photovoltaic concept for energy is the conversion of natural and artificial lights into electricity.
The photon, which is the energy vector contained in light rays, while hitting on the solar panel will produce what is called the Photovoltaic effect, a mix of heat and electronic stimulation.
This electronic stimulation will generate a movement of electrons in the solar cell and thus induce direct current electricity.
The Green Hydrogen, not to be confused with the Grey Hydrogen and the Blue Hydrogen, is the production of Hydrogen from water (H20) splitting.
The Green Hydrogen production is based on the water Electrolysis. Meaning, the electricity injected in the liquid is going to separate the water molecule into hydrogen and oxygen.
Blue Hydrogen, not to be confused with Grey Hydrogen and Green Hydrogen, is an hybrid concept targeting to decarbonize today hydrogen production.
The concept of what is called Blue Hydrogen is a combination of a Grey Hydrogen plant with a facility of Carbon Capture.
The Grey Hydrogen, to differentiate from blue and green ones, is today the most popular process to produce hydrogen worldwide.
This method of production is based on the fracking of methane, in combinaison with steam to produce hydrogen.
