Methane leakage from oil and gas production could be tackled immediately and almost half of it avoided at no net cost, says the International Energy Agency (IEA).
LNG exports are sending an increasing share of the US’s natural gas production overseas, exposing the domestic market to higher global prices. Surging gas prices make renewables even more attractive.
The US electricity sector has 14 years to decarbonise to meet Joe Biden's target, but natural gas still forms a major part of the country’s power pipeline.
Fossil fuel markets are becoming more unstable due to both geopolitics and the energy transition. Meanwhile, new technology means 'variable' power supply does not have to be 'unreliable'.
Record-high gas prices could be a tipping point for the energy transition. Business and policymakers in Europe should seize the opportunity for energy efficiency, renewables and green hydrogen.
The EU and US have come forward with a pledge to cut global methane emissions by at least 30% by 2030. Other large emitters are signing up.
Average flaring intensity per barrel is at its highest in five years – even as the IEA's Sustainable Development Scenario says it must fall 90% by 2025.
Vast offshore generation is not a goal in itself, costs for new ‘transit' infrastructure need redistributing and hydrogen needs a business case, says Christian Zinglersen, director of the EU agency promoting cooperation among energy regulators.
Air-source heat pumps are the best way of keeping US homes cool during extreme heat, while boasting lower costs and carbon emissions, reveals a study by not-for-profit RMI.
