There’s grumbling in the bush about hosting big new renewable projects to power cities. We can do this smarter.
Our super funds say they want to invest more in the net zero transition but that regulation blocks them. It’s time to put them to the test, and turn their piles of money toward a greener future.
The South African government says a renewable energy future is more expensive than other options. But one expert says the costing is wrong.
Including a positive way to think about tipping points.
Australia’s clean energy transition cannot succeed unless the government opens debate and decision-making to many more voices.
Modern mariners can harness trade winds to reduce carbon emissions.
When Australia’s government and opposition argue over how to get to net zero emissions, nuclear power is the flashpoint. The argument against nuclear is stronger, but not for the obvious reason.
Australia has a massive opportunity to reduce global emissions by as much as 9%, all while renewing its heavy industries and economy. But to seize the opportunity, government needs to move fast.
Australia’s road to net zero must pass through Indigenous-held land, which is likely to host many clean energy projects. First Nations people want partnerships that help them protect their Country.
If Australia is to meet its net zero targets it must move fast and build massive industrial infrastructure. But those projects are provoking fierce hostility. Is there a way through the green dilemma?
The Biden Administration’s signature climate legislation is unleashing a wave of clean energy investment, along with some opportunities and risks for countries like Australia.
Despite the meteoric rise of wind and solar, fossil energy sources have met most new demand in fast-growing economies.
Invisible to the naked eye, the work of the wind often goes unnoticed. Yet, for millennia, this unseen force has shaped religion, trade, warfare, culture, science and more.
Offshore wind turbines are getting bigger and bigger – and many of them now float – here’s how we stop them drifting away.
A growing source of global emissions is the ships that carry most of the goods we consume. A 21st-century generation of cargo ships propelled by the wind can reverse this unsustainable trend.
Meet the Canary Wharf-sized wind turbine with Big Ben-sized blades.
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?
Some of the most powerful offshore wind is over water too deep for a standard wind turbine. Engineers found a way around the problem.
