Solar supplier Namene has announced its latest carbon offsetting project in Namibia, the first project in Namibia to receive Gold Standard certification. It will see climate finance subsidise the sale of the company’s solar lights to rural homes and informal settlements across the country. We find out more about the state of Namibia’s energy infrastructure and how Namene is improving the renewables mix.

Also in this issue, we investigate hydropower's successes and failures on the Indian sub-continent and debate the relative merits of carbon pricing and renewable subsidies.

Plus, we look into a new report that shows how Norway has come to be Europe's largest net power exporter, examine a project to build the world's largest grid-scale battery, and ask, in light of a warning from the European Academies’ Science Advisory Council, whether Europe is doing enough to meet its energy transition goals.
