  • Morocco Is Leading The World In Renewable Energy

    Morocco is a leading country in the fight against climate change. The country launched a $1.4 billion wind farm, the largest in Africa. Earlier this year, Morocco also opened the first facility of the world’s largest concentrated solar plant. The plan is to generate 40% of the country’s energy from renewables by 2020. Morocco is the only non-European country to achieve a top 20 spot in the 2016 Climate Change Performance Index and it ranks 7th in the world.

  • Pakistans Parliment The First To Run Entirely On Solar Energy

    Pakistan's parliament was inaugurated on Tuesday by Prime Minister Nawas Sharif, and is the first in the world to run entirely on solar energy, with the ambitious project being funded by the Chinese government at a cost of $55 million. Known as the Majlis-e-Shoora, the building is located in the country's capital Islamabad. The Pakistani parliament now produces 80MW of electricity, of which 68MW will be consumed by the building, while the remaining 12MW will be diverted to the national grid.

  • Solar Power to the People: Solving Africa's Electricity Crisis

    Today in Africa, 621 million people – two-thirds of the population – live without electricity. And the numbers are rising. Unlike droughts, health epidemics and illiteracy, Africa’s energy crisis seldom makes the headlines. Yet the social, economic and human costs are devastating. Inadequate and unreliable electricity undermines investment. The sheer scale of Africa’s energy deficit often fuels a sense of fatalism and paralysis. Yet on the flipside of this crisis are enormous opportunities. Sub-Saharan Africa has some of the world’s most abundant and least exploited renewable energy sources, especially solar power. With the price of solar panels plunging, there are opportunities for firms and governments to connect millions of poor households to affordable small-scale, off-grid systems.

  • Study Finds Renewable Energy Is Cheaper Than Fossil Fuels

    Researchers predict that within the next year, electricity generated by wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) technologies will be cheaper than electricity generated by fossil fuel sources. A new report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) shows the costs of renewable energy fell to an all-time low in 2018 and will continue to fall well into the next decade. Mother Nature Network reports that the largest downward trend in costs will continue to be seen in solar- and wind-power technologies. More than 75% of onshore wind and 80% of PV projects due to be commissioned next year will generate power at lower prices than the most current and efficient models seen today from fossil fuels.
