In the final week of the Queensland election campaign, I’ve been busy trying to do what I can to influence the result. I’ve put out a couple of opinion pieces about the choice between coal and renewable energy. This one, in The Guardian, focuses on the central role of the culture war in motivating rightwing […]
The growth of energy storage from a complementary but ultimately unnecessary addition to renewable energy projects to a valuable standalone commodity has rocked the energy world and even entrenched fossil fuel-dependent countries like Australia, and new figures from Navigant Research identify over 1,700 energy storage projects around the world.
New research from the Alternative Technology Association has showed that Australia could transition to a fully renewable energy electricity grid by 2030, which would be cheaper and less risky than building new coal-fired power stations.
The World Bank will provide the Government of India with $100 million to help the country develop large-scale solar parks in an effort to help India increase its power generation capacity through renewable energy sources.
A new report from the California Public Utilities Commission has concluded that the state's major utilities have already met or will all soon exceed the state's 2020 renewable energy target of 33%, and will likely meet the 2030 target of 50% by 2020.
Over the years, driven by the requirements of its renewable energy portfolio standard and the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act, North Carolina has risen to become the country's second-largest solar market. The state now has more than 3,500 megawatts of solar installed and more than 7,000 solar jobs. Show More Summary

Despite the unclear future, we share a few things we’re thankful for this year. These policy plays prove it’s possible -- at the local level -- to overcome obstacles to renewable energy generation, local ownership, and widespread access to both.
In one of the fastest and most astonishing turnarounds in the history of energy, building and running new renewable energy is now cheaper than just running existing coal and nuclear plants in many areas. A widely-used yearly benchmarking study — the Levelized Cost of Energy Analysis (LCOE) from the financial firm Lazard Ltd. — reached […]
