Without government intervention, the world will suffer a breakdown in energy security or the worst effects of climate change—or both.
To do the unthinkable: cut off imports of Russian oil and gas, which have been flowing to the West through all manner of crises for decades.
There is no way that the world can avoid major upheavals as it remakes the entire energy system, which is the lifeblood of the global economy and underpins the geopolitical order.
Energy crisis of 2021-2022: Covid-19 and supply chain disruptions, greater interconnectedness of natural gas markets and signs of energy price volatility.
How to harness the fusion reaction that powers the sun to generate clean, limitless electricity on Earth.
Nuclear is enjoying – well not love, perhaps – not even adoration, but at least a grudging affection.
Houses right on top of the gas field going gas-free seems like a clear sign the heat transition has arrived in the Netherlands.
Governments and companies have built the global energy system around natural gas almost without a second thought. In a crisis, natural gas is just as variable as renewables.
The surge of post-pandemic consumer demand, that could blow the global economy off course. A supply chain crisis: the perfect storm.
Climate policy is shifting oil consumption. As green energy gets cheaper, oil companies could try to pump even more, so as to flood the world with cheap oil. Opec+ and decarbonization.
Grid operators today are aware of solar storms and their risks, politicians who determine our spending priorities aren’t. We need to upgrade the electrical grid infrastructure.
Making the switch by electrifying large parts of our economy and changing the supply of all that electricity from polluting fuels to clean energy. Protecting lives by improving the air we breathe in our homes and workplaces.
A new ocean has opened, and free men must sail it. Nuclear power is a new ocean of energy. It will power the human future.
Fusion rockets and compact power plants could allow us to expand into and past our Solar System, faster and further.
Despite the safety and technical maturity of nuclear power, solar PV power has prevailed. Because it is simple. What does energy look like in 2040? Post-scarcity, almost too cheap to meter. Containerized batteries and solar panels proliferate. Clean air. Continuing economic growth. Long live the Sun! Why we can’t electrify everything.
