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.
Prioritising energy efficiency will make converting energy systems to net zero easier, but there remain challenges in areas like the construction industry.
Countries in the Global South need international public finance to support clean energy instead of the dash for gas as witnessed in recent years, says the International Institute for Sustainable Development.
The price of carbon in Europe has doubled this year, and some believe it could double again. Europe’s emitters face a new paradigm of structurally higher EU allowance prices.
Europe's steel manufacturers appear to see hydrogen as the main way to decarbonise their industry.
Bumping up EU climate decisions to national leaders might seem like recognition of the urgency to act, but in reality it may slow down Europe’s energy transition.
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.
Policymakers are increasingly adding elaborate caveats to energy transition pledges in an effort to look ambitious on climate action, while refusing to fully engage with the implications of net-zero emissions for natural gas, writes energy analyst Jonathan Gaventa.
While the world brings record levels of clean energy online, geothermal energy growth is virtually stagnant, but the increased push to decarbonise heating systems could see the technology receiving renewed attention.
The net-zero road map published this week by the International Energy Agency shows a way forward to a new, cleaner world in line with the Paris Agreement, but the task ahead is massive and companies need to make radical change today.
A report from the International Renewable Energy Agency reveals the importance of a nuanced approach to the energy transition and openness to best practice across municipalities.
Setting out its net-zero emissions pathway today, the International Energy Agency has ended any suggestion gas could be considered a "transition fuel", with big consequences for industry and geopolitics, writes Jonathan Gaventa, an energy policy consultant.
