Liam Stoker reflects on the IPCC’s ‘Code Red’ warning over climate change, what it means for the world’s renewables sector and, crucially, why it is time for policymakers to match rhetoric with action.
The fallout from February’s winter storm in Texas could see new legislation enacted that would shift the cost of ancillary services onto renewable energy projects, potentially derailing solar deployment in a state that is currently on track to surpass California and become the US’ leading PV market.
