Slumbering in Indonesia is the world's biggest geothermal energy potential. Improved promotion policy and high fuel prices might help it to make a breakthrough.

A turf-war between the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Developmental Council (Leh) and the Jammu and Kashmir government has unnecessarily delayed the work to tap the geothermal energy potential of the Changthang area in Leh district.

Renewable energy offers the planet a chance to reduce carbon emissions, clean the air, and put the civilization on a more sustainable footing. It also offers countries around the world the chance to improve their energy security and spur economic development.

What do a small Italian village, a community of millionaires in Oregon and a town in Austria have in common? Nearly all of their electricity needs are supplied by renewable energy.

At first glance, geothermal energy seems almost too good to be true. It's clean, inexhaustible, provides predictable 24-hour power and you can get it just about anywhere. There is a snag, however. Outside of geologically blessed places like Iceland, Japan and New Zealand, where volcanically active rocks are close to the surface, the Earth's heat is locked away under several kilometres of rock.

Nature's News team looks at how much carbon-free energy might ultimately be available

After harsh contention the conservative and social democrats forming the fractious German government have agreed on a revision of the Renewable Energy Sources Act that regulates clean power promotion. Dispute was sharpest over provisions of photovoltaics.
