Fascism & #Fake Republicans

July 29th, 2019 | by Steve Hanley

America is becoming a dictatorship where nationalism and defense of corporations are the primary objective of the government. Fake Republicans are happily promoting the end of the American Experiment.


Curtailment Is The Easy Answer

June 15th, 2019 | by Barry A.F.

In a recent article, we found that curtailment of renewables may be cheaper than grid scale energy storage. Sometimes, the [&hellip


When Will Renewable Energy Prices Stop Dropping?

June 15th, 2019 | by George Harvey

Some people have asked when the prices will stop falling. Their understanding is that the decline in price really is unpredictable, and they believe that no definitive answer can be made about what source of energy will be least expensive in the future. In some important ways, they are wrong. The declines are predictable, to a degree


The Dance of Nuclear, Coal, & Renewables in South Africa

May 25th, 2019 | by David Zarembka

Regular CleanTechnica readers should know that Elon Musk was born in South Africa and only left for Canada when he finished high school. Does Tesla have a presence in his birth country? As far as I know, there is one Tesla employee who is promoting battery storage, which is sorely needed in a country with frequent blackouts. South Africa, as a former British colony, is a right-hand drive country and Musk has said that Tesla would open a store and begin sending Model3s there by the end of this year. There are many wealthy people in South Africa, and with Musk having “hero” status there, it ought to be a good market for Tesla cars, potentially the biggest in Africa


Tesla Model 3 Charges Twice As Fast As Audi e-tron … Air Pollution Is Killing Us … “Tesla Killer” MIA — #CleanTechnica Top 20

May 19th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular articles of the past week on CleanTechnica were topped by a detailed, thorough, clear debunking of an Audi marketing mistake — thanks to a couple of guest posters for that piece. Also topping the charts were a depressing look at the high cost of air pollution, another "Tesla killer" that doesn't threaten let alone beat any Teslas, our Danish writer's interesting debate with himself (number crunching and all) regarding which Tesla Model 3 to buy, and an "Elonroad" EV charging system in Sweden


Nuclear Power Is Not Safe

May 13th, 2019 | by George Harvey

One nuclear industry safety assessment figure claims risks are only one-tenth as great as the historic record shows they are. If the people in the industry know it, they are not admitting to a serious safety problem. If they don’t know it, they are simply ignorant of their industry’s record. Either way, I think it is clear that nuclear industry safety analyses should be regarded as untrustworthy

Public Fear Of Nuclear Isn’t Why Nuclear Energy Is Fading

March 15th, 2019 | by Michael Barnard

Fear of nuclear power is vastly overrated as an issue among pro-nuclear advocates. Like conservatives in the USA up to the Secretary of the Interior blaming non-existent eco-terrorists for west coast wildfires, it's a strawman, a convenient fiction that the nuclear advocates share among themselves to avoid the harsh truth


US Commentators Point At Germany For Bad Energy Policies, But Live In Glass Houses

March 15th, 2019 | by Michael Barnard

There are two persistent and overlapping trends in American discussions of climate change, nuclear energy, and renewable energy. The first is American exceptionalism, the idea that the USA is doing better than any country in the world despite denying climate change and walking away from the Paris Accord. The second is that Germany is awful, choosing to shut down its nuclear plants, resulting in massive increases in greenhouse gases

March 13th, 2019 | by Joshua S Hill

New Mexico's Senate and House of Representatives have quickly shuffled a carbon-free electricity bill to the Governor's desk this week which calls for generating 80% of the state’s electricity from renewable energy sources by 2040 and 100% from “carbon-free” sources by
