New reforms designed to allow more Australians to sell their solar power into the grid are being developed by Australia’s energy market rule maker.
With increasing urbanisation, Asia faces enormous challenges to ensure environmental sustainability and the liveability of its cities while maintaining economic growth. But the solutions are already within our reach, says Ken Kawai of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
Whether it’s using plants to power muscles, ancient buried carbon to transport ourselves, or nuclear reactions to light up the dark, humans always have — and always will — depend on energy to meet the basic needs of life.
Packaged as “clean and environment-friendly”, the two new coal plants will be built close to an intact rainforest in northern Philippines. Locals resisting the $1.5 billion project say it will destroy the environment and ruin livelihoods.
A new government and the first ministry for climate change is giving many hope for #MalaysiaBaharu, a new Malaysia. But for the country to meet its climate goals, it’s high time to axe fuel subsidies, writes Malaysian Youth Delegation’s Mike Campton.
The world’s transition into a decarbonized economy is being undermined by continued public investment into the oil and gas sector. How has the fossil fuel industry duped governments into supporting their energy projects?
According to new modelling a National Energy Guarantee (NEG) with a more ambitious emissions reduction target of 45 per cent by 2030, as proposed by the opposition Labor Party, would lead to power prices falling over the life of the scheme in contrast to the conservative Liberal-National government’s proposal.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) has revealed that global electricity investments exceeded those in oil and gas for the second year running in 2017 due to more spending on grids although renewable energy investment fell after years of growth.
Jobs, water, food and energy must be found for the 120,000 people in Asia moving to cities every day. Experts at a recent urban environment event in the United Kingdom discussed the challenge of Asia’s urban crunch.
A mixed picture for global clean energy investment in 2018 is emerging, with dollar investment in solar under pressure while commitments to wind power and energy smart technologies such as electric vehicles and batteries are running above last year’s levels.
There are some problems clean energy from wind and sun cannot solve. Two new studies provide a roadmap of the challenges ahead.
China’s falling emissions of greenhouse gases offer optimism that moves to curb global temperature rise may be starting to work.
In an open letter, a coalition of 16 local NGOs has called on Singapore’s powerful banks to cease financing coal power, saying it impacts the health of local communities and undermines the country’s commitments to the Paris Agreement.
India’s Ministry of new and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has issued guidelines on how to conduct testing on solar PV modules in test labs.
The two parties announced the agreement against the backdrop of the World Cities Summit, taking place in Singapore this week.
A new report has found that Australia led the world in the total power of storage batteries installed in 2017, helped by a surge in residential battery installations supporting rooftop solar systems.
China, Taiwan and Singapore boast the greatest number of winning projects
The renewable energy revolution is on an explosive growth path from China to India to Latin America, but it appears to have not yet properly reached the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), a regional grouping of 10 countries with a combined population of 640 million people.
Asia is on the lookout for solutions to pressing challenges like climate change, urbanisation , and pollution. Here’s why Singapore’s upcoming CleanEnviro Summit will help meet this demand for sustainability technology and knowledge.
China’s State Council has said in a long-awaited 2018 to 2020 pollution action plan that the country will cut coal consumption, boost electric vehicle sales and shut more outdated steel and coke capacity in the coming three years.
China’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions fell from 2014 to 2016 and might already have peaked, according to a study published today, with structural economic changes allowing Beijing to meet targets earlier than expected.
