A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • China has proposed a $50-trillion global electricity network to help fight pollution and the effects of climate change. The proposal would link existing and future solar farms, wind turbines and electricity plans in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas. If this “global energy interconnection” does move forward, it would be the world’s largest infrastructure project and could be operational by 2050.
