issue 118 | January 2020
At the Business Booster event in Paris, former Irish President Mary Robinson highlighted the need for a “just” energy transition. We consider whether renewable power can deliver social change, as well as technological change, and some of the companies and projects leading the way.
Also, we look at whether California's energy infrastructure can keep up with its ambitions, ask what makes a PPA more attractive than buying energy off power companies, and talk to Good Energy about the role of customer service in renewables.
Finally, we examine the role of batteries in meeting global climate goals, debate whether nuclear is clean enough for green funding, look back on major events and headlines in the nuclear power sector in 2019, and explore the Green Building Council's 'Paris Proof' targets.
