While a US transition to renewable energy by 2030 is possible, streamlined policies with clear goals and incentives are necessary to get there, says an industrial engineering professor.
Simple economic modelling shows the mining industry would benefit from a carbon tax.
Western democracies need to create a financing program to support the energy transition in the Indo-Pacific — and to achieve both regional security and climate goals.
Subsidies could help kickstart cost cutting and innovation in this prohibitively expensive industry.
How governments can ensure phasing out oil and gas won’t do more damage.
Offshore renewable energy installations could provide so much more than just clean electricity.
More than ten offshore wind farms are currently proposed for Australia. If built, their combined capacity would be greater than all coal-fired power plants in the nation.
How much energy does the internet use, and - given recent technological advances - could it ever run on renewable energy alone?
The maintenance required for renewable tech like windfarms can harm the environment. Robots are helping solve that.
Those who talk down an independent Scotland’s prospects are not factoring in one of its biggest natural resources.
The transition to 100% renewable energy will require a lot of land – mostly in regional Australia. This presents big challenges, and opportunities, for the farming sector.
The best way to reduce the threat to eagles is to locate turbines away from areas that are most often used by the birds.
Black turbine blades seem to reduce bird collisions, but it’s important to know why.
A clean energy transition is vital in Australia, but big projects like Forest Wind must take local communities with them.
Investing billions in refurbishing nuclear generating stations doesn’t make economic sense as the cost of renewables fall dramatically.
Nuclear power isn’t needed to meet Ontario’s electricity needs. And the absence of nuclear power won’t have any impact on emissions in Ontario’s energy sector.
A proposal for 270m tall wind turbines on Robbins Island has ruffled some feathers – but here’s why towering turbines are here to stay.
Research has found that wind turbines decrease property values in Ontario, but only when the community is opposed to their presence.
Robins are a much loved Christmas icon, but wind turbines installed in their habitat are affecting their song, with worrying consequences.
A new study claims that wind turbines kill enough birds of prey that they are effectively an ‘apex predator’.
