Millions of people will risk their health to afford heating and electricity in the months ahead.
Climate change is affecting hydropower in different ways across the country.
One species of eel can discharge 860 volts of electricity – that’s 200-fold higher than the top voltage of a single lithium-ion battery.
The state controls and regulates small farmers’ environmental practices without addressing what forces them to follow these practices.
Economic and energy policymakers are responsible for increasing both demand for and supply of electricity. There must be a surplus of energy which will encourage economic growth.
Many people want to know about practical suggestions to help slow climate change. Effective action starts at home.
There’s no evidence the Australian government’s so-called ‘Big Stick" power pricing law have achieved anything, or were ever needed.
It’s evidence of political solidarity and a strengthening of ties between Ukraine and the EU.
Bidirectional charging is the next big stage for electric vehicles. But storing power in your car and sending it back to your house involves more than flipping a switch.
Nigeria’s national electricity grid has collapsed more than 200 times since 2010, regularly resulting in widespread blackouts.
Sub-Saharan Africa is one of the world’s most sunlit regions. A prototype generator uses that sunlight in place of diesel to support unreliable electricity grids.
A team of researchers found 35,000 pairs of existing reservoirs, lakes and old mines in the US that could be turned into long-term energy storage – and they don’t need dams on rivers.
New means of generating electricity need new energy markets.
Renewable energy is expanding at a record pace, but still not fast enough. Here are the key areas to watch for progress in bringing more wind and solar into the power grid in 2022.
More than two-thirds of the world’s energy is wasted as heat. Thermoelectric materials can convert unwanted heat into electricity, but finding the best ones has been slow.
Many living organisms generate and even detect static electricity in their natural environments. We must understand more to ensure we don’t disturb these delicate processes.
Coal is the dirtiest fuel source – eliminating it is a priority for tackling climate change.
Here are four ways the current electricity system favours existing, higher emitting technologies. These must be overcome to rapidly cut Australia’s emissions.
Electric vehicle sales are booming and coal power is dwindling, but structural obstacles to net zero remain.
When Prime Minister Scott Morrison returns from the Glasgow climate summit, he must start a proper national conversation on net-zero.
