Very little attention has been paid to the justice implications of electricity distribution.
Deciding on the best system isn’t a simple matter. There’s a bewildering array of jargon to sift through and many elements to consider.
Installing enough solar panels and battery storage to see a household through a week without sunshine isn’t yet financially possible.
Many developing nations have little cold storage and lose much of their perishable food before it gets to markets. Climate-friendly refrigeration can provide huge environmental and social benefits.
Solar-powered cold storage technology is of prime significance in efforts to cut post-harvest losses.
A new study indicates that the supply of “green” assets has caught up with demand, leading to a relative decline in performance. The green premium is a reality, but may be temporary.
To achieve a target of 82% renewable energy generation by 2030 requires a huge number of new sites for solar and wind farms.
We’ll need to almost double our electricity sector workforce to build renewables as quickly as we need to. Where will the workers come from amid a skills shortage and infrastructure boom?
Experts say greater use of renewable energy via solar photovoltaic and hydro power is the best route to universal access to electricity in Togo.
Decarbonisation is not impossible, but it will be difficult to achieve through capitalism.
The world’s solar panels rely on technology pioneered in Australia. Now our researchers are working on ultra-low-cost, high efficiency solar cells.
One of the world’s largest solar farms was meant to lift poor communities up. But instead it produced winners and losers.
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.
