A team of researchers found 35,000 pairs of existing reservoirs, lakes and old mines in the US that could be turned into long-term energy storage – and they don’t need dams on rivers.
Australia has one of the highest rooftop solar installation rates in the world, which is great news for our efforts to reduce emissions. But can the grid keep up?
Such tension has played out over many decades between agricultural communities and coal companies. We can avoid history repeating itself if we urgently set the right policies and laws in place.
Our data provides a common benchmark unbiased by reporting from companies or governments.
Solar PV is the future of energy in Indonesia. Indonesia has vast solar energy potential, far larger than all other energy sources combined.
The electric vehicle transition is about more than just scrapping petrol cars. We must also ensure quality technology, anticipate the future and make sure no-one gets left behind.
Tesla is now valued at more than Toyota, Volkswagen, Daimler, General Motors, BMW, Honda, Hyundai and Ford combined. But don’t expect that to last.
Weak regulation and a lack of mandatory inspections have increased fire risks for the one in four homes with rooftop PV panels. Here’s what we need to do to be safer.
The latest estimates of electricity generation costs in Australia find renewables will soon be the cheapest even with grid integration expenses.
Ever wanted to own your own wind farm? Well now you can.
Households shouldn’t have to do all the heavy lifting in the renewables transition. A new solar farm shows organisations and businesses how it’s done.
Renewables technology already exists, it’s getting cheaper and we will never go to war over sunshine. If you need to be convinced of the potential of wind and solar, read this.
With its abundant sunshine and unique topography, Indonesia is able to generate 100% green electricity from its solar energy by 2050.
New lightweight, efficient and ultra-thin solar technologies show promise, but it may be too soon to abandon conventional solar photovoltaics.
Investing billions in refurbishing nuclear generating stations doesn’t make economic sense as the cost of renewables fall dramatically.
Australia is installing renewable energy at more than ten times the global average. This is excellent news, but raises serious questions about integrating this electricity into our grids.
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?
Australia urgently needs to prepare for a coming tsunami of solar panel and battery waste.
Almost 80 million Nigerians do not have access to electricity and its erratic supply is costing the economy an estimated $29 billion annually. Nigeria’s abundant sunlight could be the solution.
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.
