  • [New] Global offshore wind capacity will increase 15-fold by 2040, becoming a 1 trillion dollar industry, thanks to falling costs, supportive government policies and technological progress like that behind the Haliade-X offshore turbine from GE Renewable Energy. Electric Energy Online
  • [New] Currently 1.3 billion tonnes of food are wasted every year around the globe - around a third of all food produced - and tackling food waste offers the opportunity to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by up to 10%.
  • [New] The production of solar panel production is dominated by China, and the import ban could pose a new challenge to bringing renewable energy to US households. Investor Ideas
  • [New] With global offshore wind capacity set to soar over the coming decades, including the UK government targeting a four-fold increase by 2030, it is imperative that a solution to decarbonise CTV operations is brought to market quickly. Maritime Journal
  • [New] Approximately 73 coal plants are expected to retire across the U.S. by 2030, and a decade later, energy experts expect a total of more than 200 coal plants will shutter due to the increasing desirability of carbon-free energy sources. NuScale Power,
  • [New] China's proposal to continue increasing its coal power capacity through 2035 is not compatible with the steep and rapid reductions needed in coal power generation to limit the rise in global average temperature to well below 2 °C. updates-and-articles
  • [New] Victoria will not support capacity payments to existing coal and gas generators that would slow the transition to renewable energy. reneweconomy
