The new federal government wants to supercharge state renewable targets. But financial headwinds pose real challenges to the rapid rollout.
How well Morocco manages challenges to its fertiliser industry will affect its own development and the stability of food supplies across the world.
Our research shows the best changes individuals can make to cut carbon emissions and reduce the effects of climate change.
The climate crisis demands innovations in our everyday infrastructures. If these changes are to be adopted en masse, finding the right fit between communities and infrastructures is vital.
Sometimes wind and solar power produce more electricity than the local grid can handle. Better energy storage and transmission could move extra energy to where it’s needed instead of shutting it off.
The road map for a more sustainable future starts with clean energy and fossil-fuel-free transportation.
Paying coal-fired power stations to stay open means consumers will be picking up the cost when they ultimately fail.
Australia has only scratched the surface of what’s possible when it comes to better managing energy demand.
On Thursday Anthony Albanese and Energy Minister Chris Bowen formally updated Australia’s international commitment for its proposed climate change action.
Solar panels and electric cars come with their own environmental trade-offs like increased mining and extraction.
We arrived at this moment thanks to a series of policy decisions under previous governments – state and federal - that left Australia’s energy system unable to cope with the demands placed on it.
In the first major study of its kind, the authors travelled to where renewable energy is expanding in NSW to ask communities how they feel about the changes.
Renewed interest in nuclear energy will go nowhere unless we talk about carbon pricing. As energy minister Chris Bowen points out, nuclear is extremely expensive.
Companies are buying renewable energy certificates to meet their emissions targets, but new research suggests that the bulk of these purchases do not lead to actual emission reductions.
Only 13% of US solar industry jobs are currently in manufacturing. The Biden administration hopes the sector will grow fast, but that might not be so simple.
Electricity is an essential service. Acting quickly is crucial to avoid households falling into hardship, and businesses closing their doors.
Our coal-fired generators are failing, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has made the gas that fires the generators that are replacing them expensive, and it’s suddenly got cold.
Environmentalists are worried the shift to green energy means damage from more mines. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
If South Africa fails to implement the 2019 Integrated Resource Plan, it will lead to the demise of Eskom as an energy producer as users turn to alternative electricity sources.
The soaring power prices expected to hit Australians are yet another reason the Albanese government should turbocharge its efforts on renewable energy and storage.
