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

India and Japan press ahead – South Korea too

India and Japan are making progress on renewables - wind and PV, mainly - but coal use and nuclear are big issues. South Korea is to back off both.

China – even more renewables

China is leading the world in renewable energy deployment (over 554GW so far, including hydro) but it is having problems with grid integration of new wind and PV in remoter areas especially, so that the rate of growth has slowed while grid and storage upgrades are developed. Even so, it is an impressive programme, led by wind but with PV catching up.

US: energy in La La land

The US under Trump: renewables and climate policies get hit hard, with coal favoured. He may even try to revive nuclear. But there is strong resistance and no clarity about the future.
