Some of the most powerful offshore wind is over water too deep for a standard wind turbine. Engineers found a way around the problem.
New research found lots of incentives to chuck out working solar panels and replace them with new ones. This may be creating huge amounts of unnecessary waste.
Government-owned firms are often branded as uncompetitive, stuck in the past and unable to truly innovate. But they’re sometimes better suited than private firms to drive new, clean technologies.
Many oil companies are still planning for fossil fuel use to continue well into the future.

The genius of the Paris climate agreement was getting major oil producing countries to agree to a target, but they still have widely different views of energy’s future.
Unless mining is done differently, rushing to bring copper mines into production could unleash unacceptable, catastrophic impacts.
Building a U.S. offshore wind industry will require more than just fast-tracking permits.

To increase renewable energy use, the Biden administration wants the US to go from seven offshore wind turbines today to enough to power 10 million homes within a decade.
New Zealand has put just over half of its NZ$50 billion pandemic stimulus towards clean energy, but several fossil fuel powered projects will slow down the country’s shift to a low-emissions economy.
Most rural households are still reliant on firewood for cooking.

Former Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter explains what Biden’s “all hands on deck” approach could look like as the new administration takes on five big climate challenges.
As he reaches the end of his five-year term, Australia’s Chief Scientist Alan Finkel reflects on his proudest achievements in the role - and why the biggest projects have been the most unexpected.
Distributed power generation, such as this fuel cell installation, requires new ventures to work with energy regulators.
A study points to one way to speed up adoption of innovations in clean energy technology – more flexibility among state regulators.

Our research identified three key lessons.
The Morrison government will tell its refocused clean energy agencies and the clean energy regulator to give priority to investment in five low emissions technologies and report how they are accelerating them.

Kampala, like many other cities in sub-Saharan Africa, has a critical data gap on the scale and magnitude of air pollution.
A clean energy transition is vital in Australia, but big projects like Forest Wind must take local communities with them.
Yes, transitioning Australia to a zero-carbon economy is essential, but the federal government must remedy this imbalance.
People have been rediscovering nature during the pandemic, but it’s not just good for public heath. Conservation also creates jobs.
