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'.
There are some good explanations for the mismatch between regional support for climate action and the areas where renewable energy is making the biggest inroads.
Scientists have modelled the effects of huge hypothetical energy projects in the desert.
Our energy supply underpins everything we do – so why is it exempt from the fair trade arguments used for food and clothing?
One of America's original manufacturing giants is scrambling to control how customers digitise its products.
Generating less electricity with fossil fuels could help save lives.
Solar power technology has huge potential for Africa. But there are some barriers.
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.
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.
Lowering your carbon footprint by living off-grid is a sustainability dream. But how possible is it using current technology?
There's little point in saving electricity at times when the marginal cost of generating it is effectively zero.
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 energy debate in Australia is making daily headlines. This glossary of the energy debate is our attempt to decipher the language behind the debate in simple terms.
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.
