A landmark study has shown that gas prices not renewable energy, pushes up the price of electricity and renewable energy has reduced electricity prices by far more than the subsidies paid for it.
Funding for new access to power is still going to coal plants, which drive climate change and can cause health problems, experts say.
Power network owner AusNet Services has joined with retailer EnergyAustralia to deliver Victoria’s first grid-scale electricity storage project, located at a bottleneck in the transmission grid in north-west Victoria.
As the Philippines’ banks continue to finance coal-fired power plants, a surplus of coal plants could turn them into bad investments—and the subsequent burden of high electricity costs could be passed on to consumers.
All the electricity the world needs can come from clean energy, reliably and throughout the year, British researchers say, at any time of day or night.
How green is an electric vehicle that runs on fossil fuel-based electricity? Will the car run out of charge? Anxiety and misinformation are among the key barriers to greater adoption of electric vehicles.
Victorian house owners will be able to install solar panels on their homes for half price under a $1.24 billion scheme announced by the state Labor government.
As part of a push to bring down Australia’s electricity prices the first project in a US$1 billion nationwide renewable energy program has been launched near Whyalla, in South Australia.
A significant majority of Australians believe coal and power lobbies are blocking the development of the renewable energy that is needed to cut electricity bills.
Global wind and solar power developers took 40 years to install their first trillion watts of power generation capacity, and the next trillion may be finished within the next five years.
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.
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.
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.
The year is 2050. The world is more polluted, unequal, and dangerous than ever. Megacities like New Delhi, Mexico City, and Lagos are suffocated by smog. More than a billion people around the world still lack access to reliable electricity.
Buying renewables makes business sense in Australia—and not just because it saves firms money. Three-quarters of Australians prefer to buy products and services powered by renewables, a report from Climate Council has found.
