Time-poor households, like single parent families, are caught between rising prices and unhelpful tariffs.
A decade ago, solar power was a tiny sliver of the US energy supply. Today it’s expanding rapidly – and the Biden administration wants to make it much, much bigger.
Hurricane Ida left the entire city of New Orleans in the dark and renewed discussion of burying power lines. But there’s no way to completely protect the grid, above ground or below.
Electric vehicles are poised to take over our roads: so how do we make sure this change doesn’t exacerbate social and energy inequality?
At the bottom of our carbon fears is a big black problem.
The practice of using electricity revenue surpluses to fund other municipal services is running out of road.
Without community involvement and ownership, renewable energy projects are doomed to fail over the long term.
There is significant potential for the community trusts to improve the financial position of communities. But it’s not happening.
Hybrid energy systems that combine renewable and non-renewable fuel systems could be the key to sub-Saharan Africa’s energy transition.
Three experts explain a few aspects of American infrastructure that desperately need investment.
Eight in ten of these surveyed by the Economic Society of Australia say it’s the role of government to smooth the transition.
Could this disaster have been avoided? And under climate change, how can we prepare for more events like this?
Heat pumps are the technology of choice for heating and cooling buildings more efficiently and with fewer carbon emissions than furnaces and air conditioning.
Renewables form an ever-greater share of the electricity mix. But elsewhere in the energy sector – in transport, industry and buildings – emissions reduction is very slow.
The electric vehicle transition is about more than just scrapping petrol cars. We must also ensure quality technology, anticipate the future and make sure no-one gets left behind.
Southern African countries have been slow in embracing solar energy but this is changing.
Addressing inefficiencies in Ghana’s electricity sector will reduce the need to price in distribution losses
How much energy does the internet use, and - given recent technological advances - could it ever run on renewable energy alone?
None of Australia’s highest-emitting energy firms are fully or even closely aligned with global climate goals. Just one goes even partway, and five appeared to be taking no action at all.
When policymakers reduce electricity scarcity to a few factors like theft and vandalism, to be solved with technology and stiff penalties, they miss other factors that contribute to electricity theft.
