Achievement is relatively simple to unlock, just keep researching.
If you don't unlock the achievement then build another research chamber and put a research item in it. Don't forget to select it and start the research!
The more research (and other power intensive items) you have going, the more power you'll need. Medium wind turbines are cheap to produce (soil centrifuge can create clay and quartz from soil, smelt both and create turbines!) and will provide decent and almost reliable power when spaced around a lot, but make sure to have a few batteries for times when wind is slow.
Should you need more items to research, again turn to your centrifuge. Create organic (4 per soil container) and smelt into carbon. Put carbon into the research chamber.
