This study looks at the media’s coverage of renewable energy and aims to understand how its significance is regarded in the mainstream newsrooms in order to ensure that the media plays an effective role in promoting a green transition. To get a comprehensive assessment of news coverage on renewable energy compared to the broader issues of climate change, environment, and non-renewable energy, it analysed 496 news pieces published over three years from 2020 to 2022 in ten leading media outlets. Out of the items analyzed, it was discovered that just 4% of the coverage focused on renewable energy, with 75% of the coverage coming from newspapers. To improve the caliber of the issue’s coverage, it suggests creating a pool of journalists with pertinent experience and engaging news managers.
