An eight year study of half hourly prices finds that wind and solar generation have been pushing wholesale electricity prices down.
Electricity happens when electrons move from one atom to another.
China wages 'war on air pollution', but turning away from fossil fuels towards natural gas has its challenges.
Zimbabwe has a severe energy crisis because its major sources of electricity are struggling to keep up with demand.
A key tool for capturing and storing carbon may have been hiding in plain sight all along.
As the population of the world’s cities grows, so too does resource and energy use as well as waste generation. We can combat these issues with a circular economy that uses nature as a template.
The federal government claims that Australia's rising emissions are offset by savings around the globe when Australian gas exports replace other fossil fuels. But the numbers don't stack up like that.
By enacting a legislative framework to achieve carbon neutrality, France and the United Kingdom are making a difference in the fight against climate change.
Academic experts on how the humble car could evolve to become an unlikely hero in the global fight against climate change.
Electricity consumption will grow as more people switch to electric cars – but this could drive up emissions, unless power is sourced from renewables.
A year ago, Doug Ford’s election was seen as a harbinger of a populist realignment in Ontario and Canadian politics. Now polls suggest Ford has abysmally low personal approval ratings.
South Africa could become a test bed of technologies that enable households, especially in remote areas, to join electricity trading markets.
Solar and wind can't deliver power on demand. But overbuilding solar and wind, and simply dumping unneeded energy, would go a long way to smoothing out those bumps, study finds.
Japan's global influence has waned in recent years. Showing that renewables can decouple emissions from economic success could help the country find its niche and spark a race to power the Earth.
Transitioning to renewable energy will cost us something, but the benefits far outweigh the price.
The current system drives social injustice and environmental destruction, a new approach to address both is called for.
A new federal program aims to reduce diesel-dependency in remote Indigenous communities. But are these communities able to do this on their own terms?
More electric vehicles and renewable energy means more mining for resources. Unless industry adopts cleaner habits urgently, the environment faces more damage.
The UK has made huge progress in decarbonising its energy mix, but the hard work has just begun.
Twelve power projects are in the running for federal government dollars: six pumped hydro, five gas and one coal. It's clear which one shouldn't be on the list, for economic and environmental reasons.
