Top 6 Green Energy Bloggers We Love
January 4, 2019
Experts are predicting big things for green energy; solar capacity is expected to double over the next five years, while wind energy is projected to increase to more than 400 gigawatts of installed capacity by 2050. Meanwhile, staying on top of the solar market means keeping pace with a whirlwind of technical advances, policy developments, and economic current events. Basically, you need all the help you can get to stay current.
That’s exactly why we love the following green energy bloggers and journalists. Their articles keep us up to date with all aspects of renewable energy and sustainability, from practical tips for household owners to thoughtful insights on the state of solar across the globe. Here are six bloggers we rely upon to keep step with all things green.
A regular contributor at DeSmogBlog, a respected climate science blog, Farand covers the political side of energy. With journalistic rigor, she takes down the spin surrounding climate change legislation, covering current events like the UN climate talks and climate activist demonstrations around the world. Catch Farand’s reporting at DeSmogBlog or check her out on Twitter.
Electric car designer Seth Leitman, also known as the Green Living Guy, is the writer behind the blog of the same name. A cross between an environmental news site and a green lifestyle blog, Leitman writes about electric cars, offers practical tips for energy-efficient living, and details climate change and energy policy news. This is a great follow if you like hard-hitting green journalism but crave a little lighter green energy fare every once in a while. To stay on top of Leitman’s writing, check out the Green Living Guy blog or follow him on Twitter.
Consultant and TED Talk alumnus Andrew Winston has been covering the business case for green action for over a decade on his blog Finding the Gold in Green. In well-articulated and thoughtful posts, Winston covers the economics of green energy and sustainability from a distinctly commerce-minded perspective. His gifts as a speaker shine through his writing, which is both personal and informative. Catch Winston over at his blog or follow him on Twitter — or listen to his TED Talk.
Managing Editor at SolarWakeup, Brandt divides his time between running the “most influential site in solar” and hosting its podcast, where he talks with a rolling cast of energy heavy hitters. From senators to CEOs to policy specialists and beyond, Brandt digs deep into the politics of solar energy. This is a true solar wonk’s site, where regulations and programs are discussed at a highly granular level, making it a must-visit for those of us in the solar industry. Keep up with Brandt by subscribing to his podcast or following him on Twitter.
Reading about climate change and green energy policy can get a little wearying at times, which is why we love Fotheringham’s lighthearted blog, Greenmoxie, for a little environmental palate cleanser. From recycled Christmas gifts to tips on residential solar installations, Fotheringham takes on household sustainability and individual environmental action packaged in an interesting, easy-to-digest format. Plus there are some great recipes for sustainable food! Visit her blog or follow Greenmoxie on Twitter or Instagram.
Dodwell’s greatest hits include the Tango, one of the world’s fastest electric cars, which he helped engineer when he was COO at Commuter Cars in Washington. That experience groomed him to tackle the ever-changing face of the EV industry, which he does every week on his blog, EV Info. While the theme here is staunchly vehicle-focused, you will find a lot of content dedicated to solar power news, climate change and pollution thinkpieces, and energy in general. Plus, you’ll get to take all the latest and greatest EV models out for a digital test drive with Dodwell’s spec-laden articles. Follow him on his blog or connect with him on Twitter.
