South Africa's well positioned to adopt electric vehicles but this isn't a solution in itself because the vehicles would still depend on electricity generated from carbon-emitting coal power stations.
With its abundant sunshine and unique topography, Indonesia is able to generate 100% green electricity from its solar energy by 2050.
Sun Cable could provide Australia an alternative to the export business of coal and gas, and even reduce our export dependence on China.
Living sustainably has its challenges, but none greater than in the climate and geography of Antarctica.
Solar cells make electricity directly from sunlight, but how do they do it?
Australia is in the midst of a solar energy boom, yet it is lagging behind other countries when it comes to 'building-integrated photovoltaics' - solar cells built into the very fabric of buildings.
Huge survey shows more than 80% of British people support for solar, but just 18% want fracking.
When it comes to eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from transport, the future is already here on small islands.
A legacy in fossil fuels is likely to help even in the era of renewable energy.
Solar lights can help local governments drastically reduce their spending on electricity bills.
The vast desert could potentially produce more than seven times the electricity requirements of Europe, with almost no carbon emissions.
Energy storage could prove an inexpensive way for power companies to handle heat waves and other times when consumers use more electricity than usual.
Multiple studies have found the overall impact on labor markets to be minor, even if some workers will need new career paths.
Solar roadways have been promoted as a way to fight climate change, put people to work and make driving safer. But on closer inspection the reality is less than impressive.
High quality Li-ion batteries could help Africa optimise renewable energy.
A new law provides flexibility in terms of how the state can meet this new target for the electricity it consumes.
Scientists have modelled the effects of huge hypothetical energy projects in the desert.
Big solar has a potentially bright future in cities, but we need to get the planning right first.
Environmentalists and climate hawks are cheering, but many experts aren't excited about the state making rooftop solar panels mandatory on most new homes beginning in 2020.
Annual water requirements of a PHES-supported 100% renewable electricity grid would be much less than the current fossil fuel system, because wind and PV do not require cooling water.
