In a new report, the IEA explores what these changing dynamics mean for six major oil-producing states and the consequences of a global push to meet climate change goals.
China’s environment ministry has called out officials in a north western coal producing zone for lacking the “will” to fight pollution, the latest region to come under scrutiny in Beijing’s war on smog.
The head of the International Energy Agency (IEA) has warned energy sector carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions will rise in 2018 after hitting record levels the year before, dimming prospects for meeting the United Nations sponsored Paris Agreement climate goals.
While the technology has not advanced far enough to make a full swap viable, some solar projects are already underway in the field and aid workers expect many more to follow
Biofuels will dominate future growth in renewables and are essential for decarbonizing the most difficult sectors; China and India should lead the way, argues new EIA report
According to the International Energy Agency (IEA) bioenergy from liquid biofuels and biogas will lead growth in renewable energy consumption to 2023, due to its rising use in the heating and transport sectors.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) has warned plastics and other petrochemical products will drive global oil demand to 2050, offsetting slower consumption of automotive fuel.
It can be hard to get your head around just how much energy the world uses. Expressed in terms of oil, it was equivalent to almost 14 billion metric tons of the stuff in 2017. That’s like burning through all of Russia’s proved reserves in the space of 12 months, which is, in technical terms, a lot.
In two decades solar cells have spread worldwide. Now a sun-powered golden sandwich promises to make them at least 10 times more efficient.
Cities are under pressure to bring their infrastructure up to speed.
A new report from the Carbon Tracker think tank predicts that oil and gas firms’ assets at risk from massive growth in wind and solar.
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.
The top-5 module suppliers to the PV industry shipped more than 20GW of modules during the first half of 2018, representing Y/Y growth of 10%.
As governments, companies, and individuals the world over are increasingly seeking to address their contributions to global warming, the use of voluntary carbon markets is starting to accelerate after several years of slow growth.
First it was the news that one terawatt of renewable energy was achieved in 2017 and now global solar capacity is expected to pass the one terawatt mark by 2023.
Researchers have warned the planet urgently needs to transition to a green economy because fossil fuel pollution risks pushing the Earth into a lasting and dangerous “hothouse climate”.
Guaranteeing solar panels over a long period presents an emerging problem for the insurance industry and those who own renewable energy resources. How can we ensure solar assets will be protected into the future?
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.
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.
