The idea is that a car with less range will necessarily lead to more instances of range anxiety, Finley writes, but, for some, driving an electric car might mean less range anxiety than driving a conventional gas car.
Ongoing protests have forced the closure of two export terminals and an entire oil field in Libya, causing a drop in the country's oil production. Gains in production elsewhere may mean a long road ahead for oil in Libya.
In his first congressional testimony as Energy secretary, Ernest Moniz said Thursday he would move 'expeditiously' to decide on applications to export liquefied natural gas.
American oil production had a banner year in 2012, largely thanks to new drilling techniques that recover oil from shale rock formations. As world energy supplies grew, demand for energy moderated, thanks to Europe's recession and energy-saving efforts.
Many states and their destination cities have reasons to re-think how they are powered, Warren writes. The least costly energy fuel source may have other costs imposed upon their citizens, economy, and environmental assets. A recent report breaks down the US electricity mix.
Weak economic growth in the US has led to a dramatic decline in motor gasoline demand, Gagliardi writes. Not only has gasoline demand been weak since 2009, it has been successfully lower roughly each year to year the date in 2013.
Keystone XL plays an outsize role in US energy discourse, earning the nickname "the Kim Kardashian of energy" from one US senator. But Keystone XL serves as an important touchstone for both its supporters and detractors.
Some energy companies are offering Amish farmers in eastern Ohio a pittance to drill on their land, according to an article in the New Republic. The problem is that once the farmers realise that they have signed away their land for a mere fraction of its real worth, Burgess writes, they are unable to sue in court because their religion does not permit lawsuits.
A Kansas gas station tries to sell a high-ethanol blend of gasoline (E15), but runs into an obstacle from its supplier. Is this really evidence of a war on E15?
Shale oil and gas have revitalized the US energy industry and could do the same abroad, a new EIA report suggests. But oil and gas drilling will depend more so on market forces, than on geologic facts.
Pakistan is looking to Iran natural gas to help resolve its ongoing energy woes, Graeber writes. Tightened US sanctions on Iran's energy sector doesn't seem to deter Pakistan's pursuit for a natural gas pipeline to Iran.
Is the global push for renewables in vain if China lags behind? A new report on global emissions suggests as much, but hope for a clean-energy future is not all lost. Many see last week's US-China agreement on curbing hydrofluorocarbons as a step in the right direction.
We are in a far better position now to consider scaling back our use of ethanol produced from grain biofuel than we were when the EPA biofuel rule was established, Styles writes. With shale gas, tight oil and various renewables, the energy scarcity that has defined our policies for the last four decades is far less relevant to our policy choices going forward.
Coal India, the largest coal mining company in the world will invest in the installation of solar PV panels in an attempt to reduce energy bills and cut costs, according to OilPrice.com. The company will build a 2 megawatt solar plant which will have the potential to be scaled up to supply excess electricity to the grid.
