How climate impacts solar and wind power supply

How climate impacts solar and wind power supply

One of the challenges with solar and wind power is that, on any given day, the sun isn't always shining, and the wind isn't always blowing when we want it to. Now, zooming out, researchers at Columbia's Earth Institute have found that the same could be true on the scale of years to decades.

Packaging multinational makes corporate switch to solar energy

Packaging multinational makes corporate switch to solar energy

In recent years, multinationals have been pursuing renewable energy sources as a way of meeting their corporate responsibility targets of achieving power through renewable energy sources. Last year, internationally-operating corporations including IKEA, Apple, and Amazon added 325 megawatts to the United States' installed photovoltaic capacity, and will reduce carbon monoxide levels in the U.S. by 2.4 million tonnes each year over their lifespan - in 2018, both Apple and Amazon confirmed that they are now powered by 100% renewables.
