Alberta’s coming into a provincial election this May. It's already ugly. Poor & even false information abounds. But it doesn't have to. Not for you. Get your #AlbertaContext here! #THREAD #abpoli #cdnpoli #ABElection #yyc #yeg
Does it all really just come down to #BuildThePipeline or #BooCarbonTax? The answer, as always, is it’s more complicated than that. The world is going through immense changes, #AB as much as anybody. Who we pick for a leader will have to navigate through some critical years /2
CONTEXT 1: AMERICA FLIPS THE TABLES. In 2015 America shifted the whole world’s energy paradigm. We've not yet recovered. We might not ever. America just went from being our prime (SOLE) oil *customer* to one of the world’s top oil *producers* /3 economist.com/business/2018/…

Today @SynapseEnergy released a new report commissed by @NRDC on the opportunities and challenges for decarbonizing heating in #California buildings. Here is a quick summary thread.
CA's buildings are responsible for 25% of the state's #GHG #emissions and more than half of those already come from combusion furnaces and water heaters.
Switching to efficient electric heat & hot water will have a significant impact on reducing gas use in California buildings. As CA’s electric grid shifts toward clean, #renewable energy sources, #emissions from electric heat will continue to drop.

1/ The #Tesla Model 3 is one of the most efficient #EV on a range/kWh basis, followed closely by the Bolt. Meanwhile the “Tesla Killers” lag significantly.
2/ “But they’re different types of cars so they aren’t comparable!” That’s why we put them into our physics based model that simulates EPA range to separate out form factor from battery/drivetrain efficiency.
3/ Even accounting for the fact that the Jaguar iPace is an SUV, it’s far less efficient than the Model 3.

A look at battery cost declines and why so many people thought there would never be an affordable #EV
When $TSLA launched the Model S this is what the cost decline for lithium-ion batteries looked like.

Analysts and forecasting agencies figured batteries were a mature technology and had reached a price floor.
But, for manufactured goods, cost decline forecasts shouldn't be time based or made by dragging forward historic declines. Wright's Law is relatively robust and states that for every cumulative doubling in production, there's a fixed percent cost decline
