The best way to reduce the threat to eagles is to locate turbines away from areas that are most often used by the birds.
Many Asian nations are shunning fossil fuels, presenting a huge opportunity for Australia's renewables sector. And one massive project has stepped up to the plate.
In an era of climate change and extreme weather, a microgrid — a self-sufficient, energy-generating distribution and control system — puts communities on the path to self-reliance.
Building renewable energy infrastructure involves mining for materials such as lithium, graphite and cobalt. If not done responsibly, that could cause huge environmental damage.
We discovered wind farms in Spain that had carved up peat bogs, causing them to release carbon to the atmosphere.
Energy companies are marketing a new fuel: 'renewable' natural gas. But it's not the same from a climate change perspective as wind or solar energy.
Can Europe's response to the Covid-19 health crisis put its economy on a greener path? To help answer this question, the recent GEM Energy Barometer polled around 100 energy experts in France.
Increased business lobbying for incentives and mandates may tip the balance in favor of a cleaner US energy policy.
While it's impossible to stop all extraction of fossil fuels now, renewable sources are already generating 25% of global electricity demand now and their contribution continues to grow.
Pumped thermal electricity storage turns electricity into heat and back again – which can compensate for the intermittent supply of renewables.
Our research shows how a large scale renewable energy project can be plagued by many of the same troubling impacts on local communities as oil and extractive industries.
A proposal for 270m tall wind turbines on Robbins Island has ruffled some feathers – but here's why towering turbines are here to stay.
An eight year study of half hourly prices finds that wind and solar generation have been pushing wholesale electricity prices down.
Multiple studies have found the overall impact on labor markets to be minor, even if some workers will need new career paths.
Replacing wind turbines could significantly increase Britain's power output.
There are some good explanations for the mismatch between regional support for climate action and the areas where renewable energy is making the biggest inroads.
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.
The case for pragmatism, not dogma.
South Africa's new energy plan is set to be announced.
