Wildfires have led to the constant threat of rolling blackouts over much of California this year. We look at California’s energy resilience and how regulatory, government, and grid integration woes have proved the perfect fuel for a disaster. 

Also in this issue, we investigate a report showing that the richest 1% create more than double the carbon emissions of the poorest, learn about the first hydroelectric-solar microgrid in Patagonia, and examine Australia's $18bn investment into decarbonisation.

Plus, we explore the changing landscape of financing for renewable projects, discover how Sweden's "prosumption" system could set a precedent for a smart energy future, ask whether wet storage is worth the effort for nuclear safety, and dive into the potential uses of small modular nuclear reactors.
