As you may have already noticed, Clean Energy News is no more. Do not adjust your set, you are now reading Current± which, from here on in, will serve as your resource for the energy transition.
Global energy networks are changing. Cleaner, decentralised power is shunting legacy systems off the grid having been deemed too dirty, too inflexible and, increasingly, too expensive.
But to accommodate this transition, described by many to constitute the greatest change to our modern day energy systems yet seen, the networks that carry our power must evolve alongside generation.
Current±, the latest title from Solar Media, will be the leading source of news, insight and opinion as the energy transition accelerates.
Solar Media has taken the decision to launch Current± having seen first-hand the pace of change occurring within power markets the world over. And this is a theme some of the industry’s leading players have become all too familiar with.
National Grid’s Cordi O’Hara has previously said that the UK’s power sector is “well within the transition to [a] low carbon system”, stating that “working together to find solutions today for the future” to be critical. Scottish & Southern Energy Networks has meanwhile remarked that the energy market of today is “almost unrecognisable from the market that our networks were built to support”.
Current±’s coverage will be dedicated to five key themes, namely; technology, regulation, supply, networks and e-mobility. These sections were identified as the key drivers behind the energy transition following months of dedicated research, industry briefings and calls with industry stakeholders.
Liam Stoker, UK editor at Solar Media, said: “Current is very much borne from the direction of travel within today’s modern power sector. The only uncertain factor of the energy transition is just how quickly it will occur, and we’ve launched Current with the aim of providing the power sector with exactly the kind of detailed and informative news, expert opinion and analytical insight required to ensure the transition is, to copy Theresa May, as frictionless as possible.”
Current± will communicate with its readership on a daily basis, informing subscribers of the most pressing news headlines each morning. A more detailed update will be sent each Wednesday, summarising the week’s biggest stories alongside detailed insight and opinion.
The site also sits alongside two new events launched by Solar Media this year, specifically July’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Summit and the Future Power Networks: UK conference, which is taking place in September.
