We discovered wind farms in Spain that had carved up peat bogs, causing them to release carbon to the atmosphere.
More than 80% of the world’s offshore wind blows further from land than conventional wind farms can reach.
Some coal workers have the right skills and work in the right location to get a job in renewables. But many, such as semi-skilled machine operators, cannot.
The global warming potential of different greenhouse gases is often poorly understood, distorting which are the biggest concern.
The federal government this week heralded Australia’s renewable energy performance. But the outlook leaves little cause for celebration.
A proposal for 270m tall wind turbines on Robbins Island has ruffled some feathers – but here’s why towering turbines are here to stay.
Replacing wind turbines could significantly increase Britain’s power output.
A new study claims that wind turbines kill enough birds of prey that they are effectively an ‘apex predator’.
Experts expect the wind business to remain brisk in the US and abroad, on land and offshore.
The price of renewable energy will fall significantly relative to new-build coal in coming decades, making an all-renewable electricity system more desirable, both economically and environmentally.
Why go to all that bother when you can just half-fill the kettle?
Wind turbines kill some birds, but their contribution to total bird deaths is extremely low, as three studies show.
Have the hordes of wind farm complainers all gone shy?
