The G7 nations all support net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and have updated their 2030 climate goals, but their support for an international energy transition has been limited.
Researchers are developing solid-state lithium batteries that are safer, more powerful and longer lasting than today’s batteries, with electric vehicle applications the Holy Grail, Princeton University’s Kelsey Hatzell tells Energy Monitor.
With more than 100 of the world's largest businesses committed to entirely electric fleets by 2030, there will soon be millions more electric vehicles on the road, requiring huge investment in charging infrastructure. How might digital technologies help ease the transition to electromobility?
Microgrids – local power grids that can operate independently of the larger grid – are becoming an indispensable tool in building a clean, flexible, secure and cheaper energy system.
Growth in clean energy technologies, most notably electric vehicles, may outpace grid developments, with potentially negative impacts on the energy transition, distribution executives believe.
A new technology enabling total circularity for wind turbine blades has been developed by industry and academic leaders, reports wind turbine manufacturer Vestas.
A report from Rewiring Communities, a not-for-profit, presents a blueprint for the electrification of 60 US communities, which would help them reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide families with significant annual savings.
NGO Transport & Environment has revealed the inadequacy of electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the UK, and calls for local authorities to take the lead in levelling up access to public chargers.
The International Energy Agency's net-zero emissions pathway urges policymakers to begin banning the sale of new fossil fuel boilers and furnaces in 2025. Governments should not wait that long.
Canada-based seaplane airline Harbour Air aims to offer zero-emission, all-electric commercial flights by 2022. “There is a big revolution on the way,” CEO and founder Greg McDougall tells Energy Monitor.
Electric cars and vans will be as cheap to produce as fossil fuel models in Europe no later than 2027, finds new research from BloombergNEF.
The momentum behind electric vehicles is transforming the car industry, but recent studies suggest fewer jobs than expected may be lost – if battery production is local.
