Affordable energy organisation, Power for All explains why Decentralised Renewable Energy (DRE) solutions such as solar can help countries expand access to on-site clean, sufficient, affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy.
The scale of emissions-related innovation is welcome but the pace must not be allowed to slow if global shipping is to achieve a 5% zero-emission fuel target by 2030, argue Climate Champion Katharine Palmer and Global Maritime Forum CEO, Johannah Christensen.
An A380 Airbus recently flew for three hours with one engine powered entirely by sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), made from used cooking oil and other fats.
It will take enormous flexibility, interconnectivity, and storage, but it is possible — explains the latest episode of Inside the Energy Transition.
The MENA region is already the most water-scarce region in the world – and the increasing temperatures are predicted to lead to more persistent and acute drought. Building resilience is key, which is why effective climate action is vital to limit the worst effects of the climate crisis.
The Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) has launched a series of Net Zero Accelerator initiatives to help national cement and concrete industries decarbonize in line with the GCCA’s 2050 Net Zero Global Industry Roadmap.
The Criteria Consultation Process is now well underway, and over 150 independent experts across eight working groups have gathered to discuss critical topics and help strengthen and clarify the Race to Zero starting line criteria, leadership principles, interpretation guide and lexicon.
Africa’s experience managing e-waste provides interesting approaches for all countries to consider when building an e-waste management system.
Are we about to see a revolution in renewables? Some say the transition will be slow and inefficient… but some experts think we’re on the cusp of major, tech-enabled disruption.
The Race to Resilience is the UN-backed global campaign to catalyse a step-change in global ambition for climate resilience, putting people and nature first in pursuit of a resilient world where we don’t just survive climate shocks and stresses, but thrive in spite of them.
Electric cars could help to power millions of households in the coming years, simply by harnessing their battery power. The electricity in the vehicle’s battery could be plugged back into the grid, instead of being stored.
The UN’s Global Roadmap sets out milestones the world must reach to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. It includes no new coal power plans after 2021 and $35bn annual investment in access to electricity by 2025.
This year’s global climate conference was the first to emphasize the benefits of accelerating zero-emissions transportation, and Drive Electric partners showed up in full force.
It’s Transport day at COP26 and technology is transforming how we move by land, air, and sea.
In Latin America and the Caribbean, electrifying transportation has the potential to catalyze emission reductions and investments while improving the quality of life in cities, according to the UN Environment Programme’s Movilidad eléctrica en América Latina y el Caribe (MOVE).
Fifty years ago, humans took the first full photo of Earth from space – the climate crisis means it’s time for another
“Seen side by side, these two Blue Marbles, taken half a century apart, would bring home the consequences of climate change wordlessly, instantly and globally.” Robert Poole, Professor of History, University of Central Lancashire explains why we need a fresh perspective.
It’s Gender, Science and Innovation day at week two of COP26 and transformation is accelerating across carbon intensive industries
Founder and Director of Valence Solutions, Dr Gabrielle Walker helps us imagine, in parallel with rapid reductions, how we can take CO2 out of the air at the scale needed to achieve net zero in an effective, affordable and equitable way and start reversing climate change.
