The EU's future interest rate of 10% risks over-inflating the estimated cost of decarbonising, potentially putting more ambitious future carbon targets at risk.
Drax is out to prove that applying carbon capture and storage technologies to biomass-fired energy production is vital to get to net zero. Energy Monitor spoke to the UK power company's CEO Will Gardiner.
More electricity was generated from renewables than nuclear in 2019, but despite strong growth, investment in renewables will have to be massively scaled up to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.
If the EU is to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, it needs to ensure the interest rates that underpin its climate modelling help, not hinder, this ambition, writes Brook Riley, head of EU affairs at Rockwool Group.

The UK government is promising a green industrial revolution. With Brexit slowing or even ending the imports and exports of certain products, some believe the country has no choice but to boost its local clean energy economy.
Digitalisation could accelerate the energy transition and take the world to net zero, but the sector's own energy consumption and security concerns are potential flashpoints.
