Phasing out fossils fuels would go a long way to stopping dangerous climate change – but it might be harder than we thought.
Labor's detailed climate policy is ambitious, but it remains to be seen if it will capture the voters.
A Labor government would bring in its emissions trading scheme in two stages, together with a separate scheme for the electricity sector.
The global economy is already unsustainable – let alone if it gets bigger.
Over the past year Australia's greenhouse gas emissions from electricity rose 2.7%.
Australia has been mired in climate confusion for years - as reflected by its underwhelming performance at last year's Paris climate summit. Here's how to get things back on an even keel.
Renewable energy has had a rough time in Australia. Good climate policy could fix that.
A moratorium on wind turbines until we know they're safe sounds like a good idea, but it's likely that those calling for a ban will never be satisfied with the evidence.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has announced a new "Clean Energy Innovation Fund". But will it generate much-needed investment in the sector?
The process of decarbonisation is a complex one for South Africa, as most its power supply comes from coal.
The next president will have little power to slow the growth of renewable energy, sliding oil prices or coal's decline.
The U.S. energy system is gradually transitioning away from fossil fuels and toward renewables. Will the next president speed up America's shift to renewable energy or step on the brakes?
Celebrate the shift to renewable energy with bold designs that add to the landscape.
It's not the ideal renewable energy but biomass is a better bet than coal.
Internet connections could one day come from solar-powered planes that fly for months or even longer at a time.
The 'early adopters' of home battery storage will pay significantly more than those who come later, but it won't be long until prices drop enough for many more to get on board.
Dr Alan Finkel took over as Australia's Chief Scientist in January this year. In this exclusive interview, he describes his approach to science, and to issues such as renewable energy and STEM jobs.
Research and development is critical if South Africa wants to effectively increase its renewable energy output.
'Energy productivity' is the new buzz-phrase in energy and climate policy, what even is it?
The U.S. could dramatically increase solar and wind power without expensive energy storage. The key is to overlay high-voltage direct current power lines on our system of regional grids.
