Renewables Are Expanding at an Astounding Pace. But It’s Still Not Enough to Meet Climate Goals

The pieces of a renewable-forward future are falling into place. Wind, solar, and storage are accelerating. Plummeting costs and greater security in investment mean countries are increasingly looking to renewable technologies as a safe bet. And prices for offshore wind and battery storage are dropping faster than expected. One hitch, though: That renewable future still won't mean the globe reaches its climate goals. New reports

The outlook for 2018 oil prices is dull. A majority of pundits have now corralled their one-year forecasts into a narrow, “lower-for-longer” price band, with little disagreement.
