Keeping an eye on renewable energy in 2022 is worth a review. Nearly everyone agrees that we must stop using fossil fuels to slow down the harm we are doing to the Earth and the ecosystem. Our quest to find new sustainable or renewable substitutes for coal, oil, and gas has spurred many scientific and commercial advancements.

Even though it would be ideal to believe that everyone is motivated to contribute in some way to rescue the world, there is also a significant financial incentive. There is an expected increase in the renewable energy market by 2030, from $880 billion to around $2 trillion. Political incentives are also quite intense because of the public’s growing understanding of the significance of environmental and social governance (ESG) issues.

2022 was forecasted to establish a record of the rate at which the transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources would occur. Additionally, this year witnessed the emergence of novel and unusual energy sources that will begin to permeate daily life from research labs and pilot projects. Here are some of the stirring updates from around the globe we have assembled for our favorite readers.

January – renewable energy in 2022 and beyond

From flying taxis to painless vaccines: seven businesses to watch this year

Nothing is as intriguing as seeing this headline! From startups to storied high street stalwarts, The Guardian’s business reporters chose their picks for the stories that would dominate headlines in 2022. Likely, BT will have a new ownership structure or be engaged in a takeover conflict by June of the following year.

Why is a tech billionaire trying to buy Australia’s dirtiest energy company AGL?

Why, though? The business’s coal-fired power plants are being closed and replaced, and a contentious demerger that would separate those coal plants from AGL and merge them into a new company named Accel Energy is being avoided, according to the major stakeholders.

April – renewable energy in 2022 – maybe not?

It’s ‘ridiculous and naive’ to think we can stop fossil fuel production immediately, says Standard Chartered CEO Bill Winters 

“The idea that we can turn off the taps and end fossil fuels tomorrow, it’s obviously ridiculous and naive,” Bill Winters, the Standard Chartered CEO, said in an interview with CNBC in April 2022. “Well, first of all, it’s not going to happen, and secondly, it would be very disruptive.”
