February 2019

The mass construction of solar panels across the world’s deserts has long been touted as a solution to the energy crisis, but the solution has rarely proven practical so far. So what needs to be done for it to be viable?

China and South Korea have plans to build an ocean-floor power network to connect their electricity grids and create a pan-Asian electric power system. We investigate the merits of the idea. And with biopower's eco-credentials dependent on its fuel, we look at palm oil's use in biofuel and what it means for regulation.

Elsewhere, with the collapse of Evo Morales' regime in Bolivia, we consider the impacts of political uncertainty on one of South America’s few countries with access to nuclear power. We also speak to experts to find out what role mountains could play in long-term energy storage.

Finally, we examine Nigeria's new electrification grant, improving utility billing management and a virtual reality nuclear waste removal crane.
