Around the world, clean energy policy continues to be in state of a flux, with most countries in the midst of implementing changes.
Calls for a ‘free-market’ approach to clean energy development are pure hypocrisy. Why hold renewables to different standards than fossil fuels?
The Marshall Islands is ‘solarising its nation’ and plans the world’s first commercial scale ocean thermal energy plant as it prepares to host crucial talks on climate change. ‘We are not just helpless natives waiting for coconuts to fall,’ says its deputy minister.
