Stronger national planning policies, incorporating climate change considerations, key to keeping cities safe and cool, researchers say.
Uni Newcastle researchers say their lab-proven “stackable” thermal energy storage solution is a fraction of the cost of li-ion batteries, and ready to be tested in the real world.
Amid the current hydrogen hype, there is little discussion about when the technology can realistically become commercially viable, or the best ways it can be used to cut emissions.
A proposed multibillion-dollar project to build a pumped hydro storage plant could make New Zealand’s electricity grid 100% renewable, but is this the best solution?
While the UK government is right to want more energy storage to support the shift to renewables, a focus on building large, expensive batteries isn’t necessarily the answer.
New survey suggests Australian news consumers are far more likely to believe climate change is “not at all” serious compared to news users in other countries.
Done well, post-Covid government spending can make Australia’s economy more productive, improve quality of life and help the low-carbon transition. Here’s how.
Finding the glue for room-temperature superconductors is the next million-dollar question in the quest for sustainable, net-zero emissions energy supplies.
COVID-19 restrictions matter far less to Australia’s power sector emissions this year than the shift away from coal and towards renewables.
The best way to shore up Australia’s future energy supplies is to invest economic stimulus money in renewables.
