Australia and other nations rich in solar resources should invest in concentrating solar thermal (CST), a key low-carbon technology.
As biofuel production ramps up, counting all the associated greenhouse gas impacts is critical to good energy and climate policy.
Below is an interview with WRI economist and biofuels expert Liz Marshall.
Recent global action to fund carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology is unprecedented. (Update: U.S. FutureGen Project revived.)
A consensus is emerging on technology transfer in an international climate agreement, though sticking points remain.
S. 1013 authorizes the Department of Energy to conduct a program to demonstrate ten commercial-scale integrated geologic storage projects, and provides a framework for selection criteria for these demonstrations. Importantly, the bill addresses the long term-stewardship challenges associated with demonstration, including both long-term monitoring requirements and liability protection.
