The shipping sector’s emissions are equivalent to some industrial countries: here’s some innovative ways to help reduce them.
The way we use fossil fuels is wasteful and inefficient. A world based on renewable energy would need half as much as we produce now.
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.
The world is moving away fossil fuels, and there’s nothing Australia can do about it. Racing to dig up and sell whatever fossil fuels we can before the timer stops is not a future-proof strategy.
Major research found Australia must keep 95% of coal in the ground to limit global warming. With a little political will, this would be easy to do.
Current approaches to expand renewable energy in Ghana are not inclusive of the rural poor.
Electric vehicles are poised to take over our roads: so how do we make sure this change doesn’t exacerbate social and energy inequality?
From its inadequate safety provisions to vague wording around Native Title rights and interests, the bill leaves us wanting.
Major coal generators say the proposal will help shore up energy supplies. But opponents say it will pay coal plants for simply existing and delay the clean energy transition.
The US is generating more electricity than ever from wind and solar power – but often it’s not needed at the time it’s produced. Advanced energy storage technologies make that power available 24/7.
The infrastructure bill being debated in Congress looks like a small but genuine down payment on a more climate-friendly transportation sector and electric power grid. What comes next is crucial.
Most Americans support clean energy in principle, but what will they do when wind turbines or high-voltage transmission lines come to town?
The cost of decarbonising the UK’s energy system is falling disproportionately on the poorest.
Without community involvement and ownership, renewable energy projects are doomed to fail over the long term.
New ABARES research examines the climate change challenge facing Australian farmers
Offshore renewable energy installations could provide so much more than just clean electricity.
More than ten offshore wind farms are currently proposed for Australia. If built, their combined capacity would be greater than all coal-fired power plants in the nation.
Colonialism, political turmoil and unmet citizen promises all lie behind the rise of attacks on foreign-run fossil fuel plants in Mozambique.
Hydrogen could replace fossil fuels, but it’s only as clean as the techniques used to produce it. Almost all production comes from high-carbon sources, but new investments could change that.
India is expected to overtake China this decade as the world’s most populous nation. That puts it at the heart of the global challenge to beat climate change.
