  In response to Paris Agreement targets and pledges made at the 2021 COP26 climate summit, governments and energy firms around the world are looking to expand their energy portfolios and tap into a wide variety of clean energy sources. Beyond the most well-known – solar and wind – there are a plethora of other renewable energy options being explored to varying degrees of success. One little-talked-about possibility is geothermal energy, the largely untapped power source that exists far underground in superhot rock. A recent report expands upon the significant potential for this type of energy production, adding to existing…

For years, the energy sector, and almost every other sector, has taken water for granted, viewing it as an abundant resource. But as we move into a new era of renewable energy, the vast amounts of water required to power green energy operations may not be so easy to find. And it’s not just renewables that are under threat from water scarcity, as it also hinders fossil fuel production and threatens food security. In recent months, we have seen extreme droughts across Europe and the U.S., which are finally making people realise the significance of water security. Stefano Venier, CEO of…

With heatwaves being reported worldwide, leading to wildfires and other environmental concerns, at least one energy sector is getting attention for its major producing potential – solar power. But with solar panels collecting energy from the sun’s radiation, the world’s overheating may (unexpectedly) be of little benefit to solar power production. However, this is not stopping rising consumer interest as people are driven to invest in solar technology as they see both hotter summers and rising consumer prices.  With some of the hottest summers on record for several decades in many parts of the world, it must be doing wonders…

An Australian advert hyped up the future of “renewable gas” this month in a bid to start raising public knowledge of new green energy projects that could eventually change our home energy use. Automakers and many energy majors have already set their sights on green hydrogen, but there is little public awareness of the potential shift away from natural gas to hydrogen and other alternatives. While it may be a long way off until universal access to these energy sources, the marketing drive starts now, as energy providers hope consumers will welcome new energy sources into their homes. A recent advert…
