Amid news that solar power capacity will outstrip nuclear by 2018, what do those assertions really mean?
The energy debate in Australia is making daily headlines. This glossary of the energy debate is our attempt to decipher the language behind the debate in simple terms.
We need to remember that baseload coal power stations won't help cope with peak demand – the issue that will determine whether people in elevators are trapped by a sudden blackout, per Barnaby Joyce.
The energy market operator has warned of possible future electricity shortages – but only if everything stays frozen as it is now.
The energy market operator has released a report on the state of Australia's electricity system. It couldn't be blunter if it tried: the market has failed.
On Q&A, an audience member said renewable energy is 'now cheaper than coal'. Senator Matt Canavan disagreed, saying renewables are not 'at the moment, cheaper than coal'. Let's look at the numbers.

Gas is cheaper, but charcoal continues to be the fuel of choice for most households in Mozambique's capital.
The idea that Australia's national electricity market is either useful or feasible has simply passed.
Australia has enough gas reserves to supply the next 25 years' demand. Federal pressure to lift state bans on onshore gas development is pointless, risky – and won't bring prices down.
Climate change, insects and urban farm towers are a few things that will change how and what we eat in the future.
People from the lowest castes and 'scheduled tribes' are less likely to have electricity and clean gas, even compared to equally poor people from other castes.
A year after Brexit, experts from the Grenoble École de Management and the Centre for European Economic Research look at what impacts the UK's leaving the EU could have on energy prices and security.
Canada's economy faces a radical shift as abundant energy and resources could propel the country toward a Star Trek future.
Politics podcast: Josh Frydenberg, George Christensen and Mark Butler on the Finkel review.
It's clear that reaching an outcome on energy policy which brings the certainty business needs to invest will be a hard slog for Malcolm Turnbull.
Chief Scientist Alan Finkel has attempted to address the energy 'trilemma': electricity that's cheap, reliable and low-emissions. Has he succeeded? Our expert panel weighs in.
A new report from CSIRO outlines four pathways for Australia to hit our Paris climate targets, and get cheaper energy at the same time.
Better energy management could reduce peak demand by the equivalent of two Hazelwood power stations. It's time to get serious about demand response solutions to our energy crisis.
Dams are once again being recognised as important key contributors to a prosperous and sustainable future.
A recycling company has received tens of millions from the federal government to develop solid waste fuel. This fuel reduces landfill, shrinks our carbon footprint and protects the environment.
