Beekeeping relieves land degradation in Kyrgyzstan
Tetsunari Iida on the renewable future of Japan
A former nuclear researcher/engineer has a radical but straightforward idea — that Japan can go 100% renewable.
Can Japan go 100% renewable by 2050?
If the goal is to create a secure, low carbon, resilient and safe energy system, then now may be the appropriate time for an objective assessment.
Green energy tipping point: anytime soon?
Two new reports show the dramatic growth in renewable energy in recent years. But is it fast enough?
Japan’s next generation of renewable energy
Our World 2.0 attended the Yokohama Renewable Energy Exhibition recently to see how Japanese technology in the sector is progressing.
Europe’s roadmap to a renewable energy future
A new study analyses how the European Union can achieve a low-carbon economy without compromising growth and security.
Germany’s great green transformation
Renewable energy, eco-cities, and green parties in power. We take a look at Germany's green credentials.
Hawaii’s clean energy challenge
Although it is the most oil-dependent State in the United States, Hawaii launched a Clean Energy Initiative and aims to go 70% green by 2030.
Modern society is built on fossil fuel. But as its cost to wallets and habitats become ever more intolerable, one system is dying as another strives to hatch.
Europe’s renewable energy supergrid
Europe's first electricity grid for renewable power will become a political reality, as nine countries formally link clean energy projects.
How things work: Micro hydroelectricity in Japan
Local innovations in renewable energy, like micro hydro from rice irrigation, should not be overlooked.
How things work: Ocean energy making waves
Ocean power could produce energy enough to cover the world's current electricity consumption, yet the industry is not getting adequate assistance.
How things work: Geothermal energy
Harnessing even more geothermal energy would cut fossil fuel use and lower greenhouse gas emission levels.
Plugging into wind
Many governments are setting higher wind energy targets but is wind power really that hot, or just a gimmick?
Peak Oil: What does it mean to you?
Does $140 per barrel oil mean the Peak has arrived? The experts disagree on the cause but agree that the era of easy oil is over.
