INET Oxford research has featured in a Special Edition of The Economist on solar energy.

For decades, scientists have called for a transition to clean energy to prevent the worst impacts of climate change but fears that such a transition would be costly and harm the economy have held back progress. However, a study published in Joule shows the reverse: an ambitious, decisive transition to green energy technologies such as solar, wind, and batteries, will likely save the world significant sums of money.

This research was also cited in the Economic Report of the President, March 2024.
