Plans to reduce emissions quickly are seductive but can stall. Climate initiatives should end dependence on fossil energy and pursue a path towards a more just and equitable society.
A technological arms race in the 80s resulted in a world-first solar cell, that today underpins half the world's solar power.
A new technology for rechargeable batteries overcomes many of the problems with the ones we use today.
Britain greets a new decade with substantially cleaner electricity, but challenges lie ahead to decarbonise its transport and heating.
We asked some climate researchers what kept them hopeful in 2019.
After a decade of rising electricity bills, prices are projected to fall thanks to new renewable generation.
A revolution in ownership must be at the heart of a Green New Deal.
Coal and gas have been proposed as a way to make 'clean' hydrogen. But that road is full of challenges.
Just 1kg of hydrogen can power a split-cycle air conditioner for 14.5 hours. The possibilities are endless - and now we have a plan to get there.
As the effects of climate change become clearer and more ominous, fossil fuel companies face a choice: Defy warnings of catastrophic climate change, or envision their roles in a post-carbon world.
Biodiversity, public transport and home insulation loom large in Labour's flagship programme for green governance.
The most vulnerable people bear the brunt of an ineffective energy system that prioritises profit over the consumer.
Living sustainably has its challenges, but none greater than in the climate and geography of Antarctica.
Don't expect the new technology to become solar's dark twin just yet, but it could play an important role in energy demands of the future.
The US President pledged ambitious growth in the fossil fuel industry on his 2016 campaign trail – but new data shows that the green economy was already growing almost three times as fast.
New analysis revealed less than half the extra pumped hydro capacity promised by Snowy 2.0 can be delivered. There is now overwhelming evidence the project should be put on hold.
Australia's entire coal fleet will retire in the next few decades. The federal government's response to the Hazelwood coal plant closure has left a mess – it must do better.
Australia is installing renewable energy at more than ten times the global average. This is excellent news, but raises serious questions about integrating this electricity into our grids.
Ahead of the UN climate summit, we take stock of the world's best and worst performers on climate action - including some surprise success stories.
The state of Australia's energy and climate change policy is reason to despair. But there may be a nuclear solution that keeps both sides happy.
