Accession talks between the EU and Turkey have well and truly stalled, but trying to work more closely together on clean energy could benefit both sides, and help take fossil fuels offline.
In the wake of Texas’s crippling power outages, policymakers should focus on building a more resilient, interconnected and diverse power grid.
Heating homes with excess heat from power plants instead of individual boilers seems like a climate no-brainer, but given its historical reliance on coal, does the technology have a place in the clean energy transition?
As electricity systems digitalise and transition to renewables, they become increasingly vulnerable to cybersecurity attacks. Policymakers and utility operators are fighting an evermore sophisticated battle to keep the threat at bay.
Matthias Rebellius, CEO of smart infrastructure at Siemens, explains why consumers and companies need to understand the purpose behind smart solutions to be fully on board the digital energy transition.
The energy transition depends on modern, digitalised distribution grids to integrate new technologies such as renewables and electric vehicles. Investments are not on track, but governments are stepping up.
The EU has big climate plans. With the right frameworks in place, neighbouring Ukraine could help Europe achieve its vision.
The Trump administration was eager to export US shale gas to the rest of the world, including LNG exports to Europe. It remains to be seen whether President Biden will prioritise climate action over short-term economic interests.
Policy decisions on how electricity bills are constructed have a much clearer impact on consumer costs than the rate at which countries are making the transition to renewables.
Using electric trucks for urban deliveries can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality, but key to keeping costs down is knowing when to charge, says Julia Hildermeier from the Regulatory Assistance Project.
