Each Monday\u00a0Nikolas Badminton, Futurist Speaker, shares the top 3 to 5 energy revolution stories that have been revealed to the world in the past week.In Energy Revolutions \u2013\u00a0Breaking Nuclear Fusion Records\u00a0we look at the trends that we should be aware of today, December 12th, 2016.\u00a0We\u00a0see\u00a0South Korea breaking nuclear fusion records, Canada turning poop into biofuel, and Tesla extending their network globally.Another nuclear fusion record just got broken in South KoreaScientists working to make nuclear fusion a viable reality have smashed another record, after the Korean Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR) reactor in South Korea maintained ‘high performance’ plasma in a stable state for 70 seconds\u00a0this week\u2013 the longest ever recorded for this type of reaction.Containing this ultra-hot type of matter is key to unlocking nuclear fusion, so it’s a big step forward in our attempts to make this clean, safe, and virtually limitless source of energy something we can rely on.Read more at Science AlertCanada\u2019s Building a Plant That Will Make Fuel Out of PoopEach time you flush a toilet, it\u2019s the beginning of a long journey. Your waste makes its way through a maze of pipes and sewers, eventually reaching its first destination: a sewage treatment plant.There, liquids are separated from solids, and each goes through a different multi-step process to neutralize toxins. Once they\u2019re pure enough, liquids are discharged into nearby surface water (a river, lake, or canal), while solids go to a landfill or are further treated to be used as fertilizer.What if at the end of this long journey, instead of a landfill there was energy? What if you could fuel your car by going to the bathroom?As far-fetched as this idea sounds, it\u2019s becoming a reality.Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have successfully taken raw sewage and converted it to what they call biocrude oil, which can be refined in the same way as crude oil to make fuels like gasoline and diesel.Read more at Singularity HubTesla unveils its 2017 Supercharger network expansion\u00a0plansTesla updated the\u00a0Supercharger network map\u00a0on its website to show its expansion plans for next year. With only a few weeks left in 2016, the company had fallen behind on its 2016 expansion plans for its network of DC fast-charging stations and the current Supercharger maps, which should have looked like the \u201c2016 maps\u201d, were missing several stations.Tesla Supercharger\u00a0\u201c2016 maps\u201d are replaced with \u201c2017 maps\u201d showing some new Supercharger expansions in Hawaii, Mexico, Taiwan, Korea and New Zealand.Read more at Electrek***Nikolas Badminton is a world-respected futurist speaker that researches, speaks, and writes about the future of work, how technology is affecting the workplace, how workers are adapting, the sharing economy, and how the world is evolving.
