By 2025, factories are on track to churn out enough silicon to produce the equivalent of all installed solar – every year.
Organizers across the US are finding innovative grassroots strategies for helping people thrive. Many of these ventures emphasize working together as part of communities and collective systems.
Jobs in the clean energy industry are expected to grow thanks to a historic federal investment in fighting climate change. Many of the jobs have low barriers to entry, an expert says.
India’s international climate pledge could set the tone for other emerging economies for a decade.
To put the $370 billion in subsidies to work, the US needs to build new infrastructure and manage a lot of regulatory hurdles.
While Congress considers new renewable energy incentives, Texas’ sprawling wind farms tell a story about renewable energy ownership in the US – and who benefits from subsidies.
Until now, a more expensive type of silicon was used to produce the highest-efficiency solar panels. Now there’s a way to use cheaper raw materials, cutting the cost of solar power for everyone.
Removing red tape for new renewable energy projects will see additional energy coming online quite quickly.
An economist explains coal power’s rise and fall in charts.
A climate scientist looks at what works and some popular ideas that aren’t as cheap or effective as people hope.
Sometimes wind and solar power produce more electricity than the local grid can handle. Better energy storage and transmission could move extra energy to where it’s needed instead of shutting it off.
The road map for a more sustainable future starts with clean energy and fossil-fuel-free transportation.
The largest category of power plants applying to connect to the US grid are now solar, and over a third of those are hybrids that include battery storage.
A tidal energy expert explains why tidal power hasn’t delivered on its potential yet - and why that’s soon to change.
The tariffs targeting cheap Chinese imports mean prices in the US are higher than average, at the same time Biden is pushing for more renewable energy. But their effect might surprise you.
The UK government is reportedly considering a costly proposal to build a solar farm in space.
Fusion seems nearer than ever - but it won’t be the silver bullet to stop climate change.
South Africa’s biggest successes in the last year in relation to energy have been in regulatory matters.
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.
Providing government subsidies for emerging clean technologies could unlock their transformative potential.
