Generating less electricity with fossil fuels could help save lives.
Large-scale solar and wind tend to push energy prices down, which sounds great as a consumer. But that makes keeping the grid in constant balance harder.
Several states, including Massachusetts and Rhode Island, have developed ambitious renewable energy targets that hinge in large part on getting their power from turbines stationed in the water.
Annual water requirements of a PHES-supported 100% renewable electricity grid would be much less than the current fossil fuel system, because wind and PV do not require cooling water.
While wind energy is often perceived as controversial, that may be due to the tyranny and power of unrepresentative anecdotes.
Experts expect the wind business to remain brisk in the US and abroad, on land and offshore.
As fusion becomes more technically viable, it's time to assess whether it's worth the money because breakthroughs in the lab don’t guarantee success in the marketplace.
With cutting-edge technologies and innovative business practices, Cape Verde can achieve its goal in a way that is cost-effective and equitable
The price of renewable energy will fall significantly relative to new-build coal in coming decades, making an all-renewable electricity system more desirable, both economically and environmentally.
On Q&A, an audience member said renewable energy is 'now cheaper than coal'. Senator Matt Canavan disagreed, saying renewables are not 'at the moment, cheaper than coal'. Let's look at the numbers.
If history is a guide, policies that promote wind power expansion will lead to lower prices – potentially beating fossil fuels in the US by 2030.
The South Australian and federal governments' energy feud reached a peak this week, but just who is responsible?
Nobody in business wants to touch new "clean" coal plants, which means taxpayers would be left to foot the billion-dollar bills.
Global emissions from fossil fuels have stalled. That puts us in the right place to keep warming below 2℃, but there's plenty of work still to be done.
South Australia's recent blackout raised questions about the role of wind energy in Australia's electricity network.
Australia has the world's largest wave energy resource – so how do we unlock our ocean's potential?
Queensland currently gets 7% of it's electricity from renewable sources - but is aiming for 50% by 2030.
Australia's electricity market will be reviewed over the next six months, following South Australia's state-wide blackout.
South Australia's wind energy has been caught in a storm since last week's blackout, but what do we really know?
South Australia's electricity price shock in July showed that Australia hasn't worked out how to put large amounts of wind energy into the grid.
