Amy’s take: This is a fun & inspiring read, particularly this quote from Forrest of @FortescueNews on his quest to make clean steel: "It’s like being there at the beginning of the industrial revolution. Someday you’ll look back and say, ‘I was there.’" nt-z.ro/3nk8SB4
Have an energy photo to share? Email us: [email protected] This week, Cipher reader Dr. Raymond Krommenacke shares his local #hydropower dam in Aubonne, Switzerland. He writes: “This is a small local dam…which brings today very cheap electricity to 60,000 households.”

Amy’s take: The @IEA has said it should present things first as they are, instead of how they should be to tackle climate change. @kmac explains that much of the world has used this to uphold the status quo, even if the IEA never intended it that way: nt-z.ro/3B3KUyU
Data Dive: As Congress debates the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the budget reconciliation package, @rhodium_group’s latest report analyzes how the proposed legislation could impact sectoral emissions – now and later. More in Cipher: nt-z.ro/3zeMwoT
The energy crisis unfolding around the world is driven by several complex factors. In this week’s edition, @AmyAHarder breaks down why fossil-fuel prices are on the rise – and what it means for the clean-energy transition. For more: ciphernews.com
The latest @CipherClimate breaks down the energy crisis gripping much of the world right now-->
It's like a crash diet brought on by the pandemic. The clean energy transition isn't the main driver, but risk still looms in the future. bit.ly/3baHQqx
This week’s edition of Cipher is out! Learn why the global energy crisis is like a crash diet and how proposed congressional legislation will impact U.S. emissions: nt-z.ro/3lXWgQX
Have an energy photo to share? Email us: [email protected] This week in Cipher we featured an example of biomass: a cord of Douglas Fir from a reader gleaned from clear-cut leftovers. He writes: When burned in an EPA-certified stove, the logs have very low particulates.
A new report by @WoodMackenzie predicts energy storage will nearly triple globally this year and continue to grow rapidly through 2030. Read more in Cipher and subscribe for next week’s issue: ciphernews.com
Climate and energy action is like a puzzle whose pieces are constantly changing in size and shape.
Right now, the piece about fossil-fuel prices is outsized--but there are seven others. Check out my latest column in today's @CipherClimate bit.ly/3Axaso5
This week’s issue is out! Read up on how change happens in climate and energy, new data showing global energy storage capacity tripling this year, driven by wind and solar, and biomass in Washington state: bit.ly/3BEo2r0
This week in Cipher: How does change actually happen? @AmyAHarder covers the eight puzzle pieces in energy and climate that drive change. Plus, get Amy’s lunchtime reads and hot takes, new energy storage data and more. Sign up now for Wednesday’s issue: ciphernews.com
Have a cool energy photo? Share it with us: [email protected] This week in Cipher we featured this photo from John M. Lawlor, Jr. His 11-year-old solar panels are producing at the original level, have generated ~129,000 kWh and saved carbon equivalent to a 110-ton coal car!
The carbon emissions of China’s steel and cement industries exceeds the entire emissions of the EU’s energy system, according to @IEA’s new report. The data is clear: We need new tech, fast, to clean up manufacturing. This graph show’s China’s path to carbon neutrality by 2060.
How do we get to net-zero emissions by 2050? Wind and solar only or a broader energy mix? Read Cipher’s latest issue for updates and analysis on this ongoing debate among climate advocates: bit.ly/3BilWgc
We have a bonus installment of Cipher's inaugural interview with @SecGranholm, where she makes news on hydrogen, carbon capture & nuclear power. Get the latest here with my Harder Line column in @CipherClimate: bit.ly/303r1eI
The @JoeBiden administration sees hydrogen & carbon capture as key to clean up sectors like manufacturing & heavy-duty trucking. Hear @ENERGY @SecGranholm on these sometimes controversial energy sources in tomorrow’s issue by subscribing here: ciphernews.com
This week in Cipher: @ENERGY @SecGranholm defends contentious tech and the need for urgent climate action (bonus interview clips!), analysis of @IEA’s new report on China and climate, and more from @AmyAHarder. Subscribe to get Cipher every Wednesday: ciphernews.com
$29.2 billion--the record-breaking amount of venture capital money poured into climate technologies so far this year, per a forthcoming @PitchBook report. Look for more analysis from Cipher when their full climate tech report is out on Oct. 27.
I send myself a running email on weekdays with articles to read on my phone while eating lunch away from my computer. That habit morphed into this newsletter section: Amy's Lunchtime Reads and Hot Takes. (I'm pro pun!)

A record ~$30 billion of venture capital money has gone into climate change technologies so far this year, largely from the U.S., according to an exclusive sneak peak of @PitchBook data. Look for more analysis from Cipher when their full climate tech report is out on Oct. 27.
U.S. @ENERGY @SecGranholm says the world needs systemic change, not undue focus on individual carbon footprints, to effectively tackle the climate crisis. Watch Cipher’s exclusive interview for more on the policy changes we need now: youtube.com/watch?v=a758Tw…
