As the world leader in solar photo-voltaic energy, China has lessons to share on how to expand access to renewable power. Can its remarkable trajectory continue?
Iraqi Kurds lack power up to 13 hours a day, thanks to inefficient infrastructure and booming demand. Though the region is flush with oil and gas, solar could be one of the most promising solutions.
Power from solar and wind requires zero or little water, unlike coal, gas and other forms of thermal power. Renewable energy can therefore be particularly attractive to water-stressed countries looking to meet their increasing electricity demands without producing emissions.
President Donald Trump’s approval of a four-year tariff on imported solar panels will raise costs, cut installations, reduce jobs and slow the decline in greenhouse gas emissions. But the economic and environmental benefits of solar power remain strong, and governments, businesses and individuals should act now to lock in a low-carbon future.
