From saving the oceans to preserving biodiversity, now is the time for global action.
Developers say industrial-scale farms are needed to meet the nation’s climate goals, but locals are fighting back against what they see as an encroachment on their pastoral settings.
A lucrative state incentive to make natural gas from dairy waste is attracting companies from Amazon to Chevron.
Finding green energy when the winds are calm and the skies are cloudy has been a challenge. Storing it in giant concrete blocks could be the answer.
Green energy comes from sources that cause little-to-no impact on the world’s carbon footprint.
Energy use accounts for almost 75% of global greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions. Global energy demand is projected to more than double by 2050 as the population grows and economies shift. Transitioning to clean energy is essential to meeting global climate goals. How do we move away from so-called "dirty" energy towards a green energy revolution? The Economist answers your key questions.
Despite all the progress, we’re still struggling to hit the climate emergency brake.
Making clean energy isn’t enough. We also have to move it.
The fallout from the coronavirus pandemic has many businesses reeling, and the oil and gas industry in particular has been rocked by plummeting prices that have forced it to drastically cut production and lay off workers.

This is a new idea, so it hasn’t been deployed in the real world, but it has plenty of potential use cases.
Only a small fraction of dams actually produce electricity. Transforming them into hydropower plants might stop new ones from being built.
And what’s the difference between green energy, renewable energy and clean energy? Often these terms are used interchangeably, but there are some differences. Here’s our simple guide.
Most claims of running on “clean” electricity come with caveats, and many technologies required for round-the-clock renewable energy aren’t quite ready yet.
The degree to which the world depends on oil and gas is not well understood.
With the world attempting to reach net zero by the middle of this century, what sources of energy could feasibly replace fossil fuels?
