Launched in 2006, the Renewable Energy Monitor (REM) provides our customers with a comprehensive global overview of renewable energy developments, spanning multiple generating sectors. Having recently celebrated its 400th issue, REM is an established news, commentary and analysis source for any individual or company involved in the industry.
REM covers information across all main renewable energy sources, including onshore and offshore wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, biofuels, hydro, wave, tidal and marine. It also gives insight into new and developing technologies such as algal biofuels and advanced storage, keeping our customers abreast of the latest updates and innovations relevant to any of the above sectors. REM aims to alert readers and investors on the latest large-scale projects and IPOs, giving balanced coverage of potential global opportunities for investors and companies along the renewable energy supply chain.
In the renewables industry, policy can often dictate the fate of successful projects and investment – REM aims to provide detailed commentary and the latest news on regional issues and decision-making, from a supra-national level such as the European Commission, to national guidance such as the US EPA or Japan’s METI. This news and information is vital to both short- and long-term planning within a still nascent industry.
REM is published weekly on Thursdays. Owing to its global nature, REM also features a substantial News in Brief section with a variety of local, regional and international press coverage from web, print and corporate sources.
