Battery and battery storage technologies are playing an increasingly important role in the energy transition from fossil fuels to renewables, but significant challenges remain in terms of investment, under-capacity and the ethics of mining for raw materials like cobalt. We find out how the industry is developing.
Now that the UK’s MET Office has shown the tangible effects of climate change on the UK’s weather system, we are also looking at how the energy industry can help address some of the damage already caused by excessive greenhouse gases.
Finally, in July, the U.S. Senate passed a massive $ 550 billion investment bill, on paper, with the bill getting $ 73 billion for clean energy and another $ 7.5 billion for electric vehicles since the US wants to improve its environmental performance at all levels of its society. We are investigating.

The big charge: the current state of the global battery market
Battery and battery storage technologies are playing an increasingly important role in the energy transition from fossil fuels to renewable energies. However, significant challenges remain in terms of investment, undercapacity and the ethics of mining for commodities like cobalt, as Julian Turner finds out.
Europe’s winds of climate change
As large parts of Europe burn or sink under water, pressure is increasing on governments and industries to reduce their CO2 emissions. Andrew Tunnicliffe speaks to WindEurope about how wind can be an important tool in the fight against climate change when obstacles such as sluggish permits can be overcome.
Robotic technologies in offshore wind
With the need for more efficient renewable solutions to tackle worsening climate change, industry operators have invested capital, time and effort to integrate robotic technologies into the offshore wind sector. Yoana Cholteeva speaks to experts to find out how robotics can help solve industry challenges.
Impending climate crisis: what can the industry do now to correct it?
After the UK’s MET Office highlighted the tangible effects of climate change on the UK’s weather system, Yoana Cholteeva is investigating how the energy industry can help repair some of the damage already caused by excessive greenhouse gases.
Small monitoring, big changes: How RTUs have adapted to the global energy mix
As the world’s energy becomes more decentralized, monitoring devices have to adapt. JP Casey speaks to Ovarro to learn more about these changes.
A $ 550 billion project: within massive US investment in clean energy
The U.S. is considering a $ 550 billion clean energy bill that will modernize everything from power generation to the bus network. JP Casey determined.
