  • It's an exciting and challenging time to be a grid operator in the UK, which has seen record levels of low carbon energy on the network since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. But while the record-breaking move away from coal is something to be celebrated in climate terms, the increasing integrat...

  • Paradoxically, the best time to ponder how we move around may be when we’re all standing still. Transport – this issue’s first theme – was at a crossroads prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. While electric vehicles (EVs) appear to have provided a solution for decarbonising road transport, t...

  • With the continued delays and cost increases at Hinkley Point C, the UK nuclear industry has not received much good press of late. While the future of large-scale reactors is uncertain, a more compact technology might just turn the sector’s fortunes around. Small modular reactors (SMRs) are the...

  • The energy industry has long recognised the potential for hydrogen to displace polluting fossil fuels in multiple sectors – from road transport to domestic heating. But, until recently, opportunities had only been highlighted in theory, rather than trialled in practice. Unconventional gases are...

  • It’s usually cheaper to prevent the use of a unit of energy than it is to generate that unit, either from fossil fuels or renewables. In this edition of Energy World, we turn our attention to the sometimes overlooked ‘fifth fuel’: energy efficiency. The theme begins on page 14, where Andrew Wil...

  • Much has been made of the runaway success of offshore wind in recent years, particularly in the UK and Europe. But has the tremendous political and financial enthusiasm for the sector come at the expense of onshore renewables? There's little doubt that subsidy cuts have shaped the landscape in the U...

  • We cover energy use as well as supply in this magazine. Reducing wastage, buying well and employing on-site generation and storage are fundamental demand-side imperatives. So, we include articles on low carbon initiatives in the distilling industry; power purchase agreements with renewable generator...

  • Renewables and fossil fuels are both featured in this issue, including an article on how the home of oil – the Gulf region – is now turning its attention towards renewable energy. In particular, we look at how one large solar project is mixing fossils and renewables to deliver heat for enhanced oil ...

  • Cooling, plus heat – thermal energy – is the first theme of this issue, in which Toby Peters raises several questions about the feasibility and environmental costs of providing cooling for all (see page 18). We also include two articles on district heating: one describing innovative UK schemes that ...

  • Buildings are no longer simply consumers of energy, and local generation schemes are part of the future of urban energy. We cover these themes in five articles in this issue, starting with a view from UK Research and Innovation into local, low carbon energy networks.Articles follow which examine bar...
