The first major international initiative to galvanise technology that traps carbon emissions before they reach the atmosphere will be unveiled this week by some of the world’s largest polluters. The annual Clean Energy Ministerial will play host to the new global co-operation plan to develop carbon capture and storage (CCS) to clean up the emissions from power plants and factories. The US, Saudi Arabia and Norway are preparing to lead the work to develop CCS, and their effor
India has the potential to lead future Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) development and deployment in Southeast Asia. Yet India, with a GDP of $2.3 trillion, is home to over 239 million people who do not have access to electricity. This has implications on overall development goals including poverty alleviation, health, food security, and education. As coal minister Piyush Goyal put it, India's top development priority is to provide affordable electricity to all
Paris: The shift of low-value, energy-hungry manufacturing from China and India to coal-powered economies with even lower wages could be bad news for the fight against climate change, researchers cautioned Monday.
As Asia's giants move up the globalisation food chain, many of the industries that helped propel their phenomenal growth -- textiles, apparel, basic electronics -- are moving to Vietnam, Indonesia and other nations investing heavily in a coal-powered future.
Asia's coal miners, shippers and traders are seeing strong demand and rising prices for their fuel, and they expect this happy situation to persist for several years to come. Nusa Dua: Asia's coal miners, shippers and traders are seeing strong demand and rising prices for their fuel, and they expect this happy situation to persist for several years to come.
It was a challenge to find anybody pessimistic about the outlook for coal in Asia, the world's largest producing and c
More than 5,000 jobs and a £0.9bn project, says report published today Low-carbon hydrogen will power industry and heat 2m homes, with longer term ambitions to provide fuel for trains, lorries and buses Plan set out by UK’s biggest gas network, Cadent, is supported by the region’s two metro mayors, Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram At least 5,000 jobs will flow from a £0.9 billion project to create a new ‘green’ source of gas to power local industry and heat homes in North West
Ask Vietnam, Pakistan and even Korea: the era of steam coal is not over yet. Banks don't want to finance it, big miners are dropping it, and China is migrating to cleaner natural gas. But the shift to green fuels is slow, and Asia's demand for electricity is outpacing it. That will keep prices lofty for longer than many had forecast.
Thermal coal, burned to generate energy, has few friends in high places. Developed markets like Britain, France and others are phasing it out
New Delhi: Solar energy, once a niche application for a limited market, has become the cheapest and fastest-growing power source on earth. What's more, its potential is nearly limitless-every hour the sun beams down more energy than the world uses in a year. Recognizing this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has set an audacious target to build 100 gigawatts (GW) of solar capacity to power India's growing economy, expand energy access, and limit India's contribution to climate ch
