Save A Baby’s Life In Sierra Leone — For Real (#CleanTechnica Video)

April 2nd, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

There are a lot of things that are exciting and cool about various cleantech products, but when it comes down to it, many of us hardcore cleantech enthusiasts follow this stuff because it saves lives. Saving any life is great, but there's something extra special about saving a baby's life. On the flip side, there's something extra harsh about seeing or even hearing about a baby's death


Solar Panel Prices Continue Falling Quicker Than Expected (#CleanTechnica Exclusive)

February 11th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

Solar power prices have been dropping faster than people expected, even faster than experts expected, and even faster than bullish experts expected. I wrote about this general point a couple of years ago for an article for The Economist Group. The question I was supposed to explore was whether we needed solar technology breakthroughs in order for solar to take over the electricity generation market


Is Coal A Patriotic Issue?

February 7th, 2018 | by Jacek Fior

This is a voice from behind the Iron Curtain ... again! It may sound like history is playing a joke on us here in Poland, but the truth is we are being pushed behind an invisible barrier separating us from a more sustainable West. There is no wall anymore (we're lagging behind the USA a bit in that matter ;-) ) but a brief look at any interactive map of air quality/pollution will quickly reveal our place in Europe — 33 out of the 50 dirtiest cities in Europe are in Poland. And yet, if you ask a person in the street, you would be surprised how much people still value coal and revere miners. What a paradox!

Bloomberg New Energy Finance's London Future of Energy Summit just wrapped up. As usual, the highlight of the show was the presentation from Michael Liebreich, Founder* and Chairman of the Advisory Board.

Renewables = Over 50% New Electricity Capacity But 16% Of Energy Investment

January 24th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

Only 18% of energy investment in renewables despite >50% of new power capacity being renewables is, to me, a sign that the carbon bubble is still growing, but it's also a giant Post-it note telling investors that it's time to shift focus and put money into the future ... if they want the future to be kind to them


EVs Will Save The World (With Help From Energy Efficiency & Renewables)

November 28th, 2016 | by Guest Contributor

gasoline is still more expensive than electricity for transportation, but is electricity produced from coal and natural gas cheaper than that from renewables? Price of fossil fuels (oil (2) and natural gas(3)) in the U.S. are at 14 year lows. The amount of electricity generated using coal in the U.S. is at its lowest level since 1970 (4) and last year, natural gas surpassed coal as the top U.S. fuel used to produce electricity
