Comment and analysis from our editorial staff and professionals in the field.

Renewables in the USA

Renewables supply nearly 15% of US electricity at present, and seem certain to expand, despite the political stalemate: up to almost 50% of power by 2030 is seen as possible, and 27% of total energy - the same as the EU's target.

Green energy in Africa

Africa has a very large renewable energy potential that is only now being developed, with the UN Sustainable Energy for All programme, along with many others, providing some help to local initiatives.

Renewables in Russia – not much interest

Russia has massive renewable resources, but so far has not developed them significantly, hydro apart. Instead it is focusing on nuclear power as the main long term replacement for fossil fuels.
