To understand what happened to our love of giant radioactive kettles, take a look at cultural theory.
SA Liberal Party leader Steven Marshall said that state Labor policy had left South Australians with 'the highest energy prices in Australia' and 'the least reliable grid'. Is that right?
The fossil fuel era won't last forever. And a new set of countries will find their reserves of lithium, copper and rare earth metals are in high demand.
February is the riskiest time of the year for blackouts, as the nation returns to work and school and soaring temperatures put pressure on the system.
As coal continues to collapse, large new wind farms are coming online. Electricity generated in Britain is the cleanest it's ever been.
Sun, wind, waste biomass, geothermal, tides and waves: all these energy sources in Sydney's backyard add up to a zero-carbon energy solution for the city.
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.
Electricity storage is vital to the stability of a renewable energy grid. The world's favourite form of storage is pumped hydro – and researchers have located thousands of candidate sites.
Offshore wind is an expensive business to get into.
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.
Solar PV and wind energy have overtaken coal as the leading sources of new electricity generation worldwide, with falling prices and new storage technologies making clean energy ever more attainable.
The UK is about to miss an opportunity if it tries to take on the giants of the lithium-ion battery industry.
Energy Secretary Rick Perry wants to know if wind and solar are compromising the reliability of the grid and hurting coal power. The answer lies in his home state of Texas.
Africa's energy potential remains under-exploited, the energy entrepreneur is well-positioned to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the energy sector.
Have the hordes of wind farm complainers all gone shy?
Estimates released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics suggest that the number of direct full-time equivalent jobs in renewable energy activities has continued to fall from its 2011-12 peak.
Relying less on fossil fuels is one of the key challenges of energy transition, and taking weather variations into account can help increase the overall efficiency of a renewable-energy system.
Engineers are hoping to iron out a century-old technology that could reduce shipping emissions.
Here are some short- and medium-term strategies for transitioning to renewable, reliable and affordable energy in South Australia.
