  • Tailor renewable energies to local culture

    To make an impact, small-scale renewable energy systems must fit social expectations and cultural norms, argues Benjamin K. Sovacool.

  • A renewable energy technology that gets no respect

    No Silicon Valley venture capitalist has invested in it. Government subsidies for it are skimpy, at best. It lacks clout in Washington. And it's been around forever. Yet it's by far the most popular form of renewable energy used at home, dwarfing the impact of rooftop solar panels and appealing not just to well-to-do greens but to poor people, African-Americans and, we'd bet, climate change ...
