Building real change: the new issue of Future Power Technology is out now

In this issue: delivering tangible climate change regulation, the role of cryptocurrency in power, and the Ukrainian debt dispute.

By JP Casey

Could 2022 be the year that climate change regulation gets tangible? Environmentalists have been urging the world’s governments, companies and leading decision-makers to take environmental protection more seriously for years, but in the wake of COP26, and with increasingly dire warnings about the world’s climate and the impacts of human activity on its fragile nature, 2022 could be the year that those warnings are finally heeded.

Indeed, with financial pressures also pushing many producers away from fossil fuels, and towards renewables, there is genuine hope that clean power becomes a project of not only environmental benefit, but profitable enterprise too. Of course, challenges remain to realising these ambitions on a global scale, but there remains cause for optimism.

Elsewhere, we consider the potential impacts of the increasingly popular, and energy-intensive, cryptocurrency mining industry, which threatens to disrupt both traditional ways of conducting business, and the power infrastructure behind those transactions. We also investigate the Ukrainian power debt dispute, and ask whether mandatory power auctions are harming the country’s stuttering renewables sector.
