Investment is key for the success of the renewable transition, but what makes a country more attractive than others to investors? We take a look at the latest EY Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index and find out where is the best place for renewables investment.
The Asian Development Bank funds a staggering number of energy projects; we ask about the principles behind the organisation’s investment decisions. In the UK, companies are looking for new ways to allow anyone to own a bit of a renewable project. Ripple Energy presents consumers with the option of co-owning a wind farm, but could this model really bring about household savings and will people be interested?
Utility scale wind power is one of the most successful types of renewable energy in the world, but now distributed turbines are becoming increasingly popular too. We ask whether these smaller turbines could ever catch up with their large scale counterparts. A team in Texas A&M University have developed a technology, based on the sonar system of a bat that could help the creatures avoid the spinning blades.
Finally, we speak to Greenpeace about their stance on nuclear power, take a look at the difficulties of choosing a hydropower site and look at the history of Three Mile Island ahead of its upcoming closure.
