A report on the number of animals killed and species at risk of extinction lays bare the ecological impact of renewable energy technology.
The exorbitant price for a solar installation atop a local Oregon courthouse is calling into question the state’s renewable energy policies.
Claims at Capitol Hill hearing that the "Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative" boost the economy ignore new research.
Europe’s pivot away from traditional power sources without a proper contingency plan may be putting the continent at risk of a severe energy crisis, warns an energy executive.
