New lightweight, efficient and ultra-thin solar technologies show promise, but it may be too soon to abandon conventional solar photovoltaics.
Due to inefficiencies in global energy systems, energy falls short of even making it to the consumer, often lost in the form of waste heat.
Who wins, who loses and whose natures are being talked about when nature-based solutions are proposed?
The costs, and the pain, of climate change only increase the longer we wait to act.
Decarbonizing the global economy would help the climate change problem – but also many others. Would putting all those additional co-benefits center stage help drum up support for climate action?
We have all the technologies needed to make the electric grid run on renewables and lower pollution. What are they and what are the barriers to adopting them widely?
If the climate is in peril, why has the federal government approved a pipeline that will ship close to 600,000 barrels of oil per day from Alberta to British Columbia?
Shipping companies are expected to halve their greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
Only a small share of the vehicles Americans buy are electric. Even if all of them were, it would take until 2040 to phase out the fossil fuels used to power personal travel and road-bound freight.
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?
There are precedents regarding power generation and ethanol but no nation has ever achieved as comprehensive and dramatic this fast.
An Obama administration veteran offers some insights from his experience about driving massive increases in clean energy.
Burning natural gas produces less greenhouse gases than coal or oil. But the methane emissions associated with natural gas production and liquefaction threaten to erode its environmental benefits.
Bill C-69 will slow down Canada's efforts to transition to a decarbonized and sustainable economy.
The spread of ride-hailing services and autonomous vehicles will lead to higher energy demand, a study finds. Electric vehicles and a much cleaner grid are the only way to avoid more emissions.
A new law provides flexibility in terms of how the state can meet this new target for the electricity it consumes.
As EVs make more inroads, giving tenants somewhere to plug in their cars could become a selling point.
What if the world really got serious about meeting global climate goals? Doing the math on current emissions and the pace of energy transitions shows how quickly fossil fuels need to be phased out.
How fast can the US transition to clean energy and with what energy sources? Here's why an impassioned debate among energy wonks matters to the rest of us.
The digital world is taking more and more space in our lives... and dramatically increasing electrical use. It’s a serious problem given the urgent need fight climate change.
