It's generation capacity is ~3,030 MW (that's about 5 avg. sized coal plants 🏭).

With a storage capacity of 24,000 MWh (the output of ~40 avg. sized coal plants 🏭) / 2

You're taking a job running a #renewable exports campaign? Renewable exports - what's that? Why is it important?

THREAD
Last year I came up with a #Renewable Exports typology.

I reckon there are six main types of exports.

1. Direct electricity transfer via undersea cables, like the SunCable proposal to export power to Singapore afr.com/companies/ener…
2. Clean hydrogen-based fuel, using #renewable electricity to electrolyze water. Renewable hydrogen can then be turned into other chemicals like ammonia, which can be transported more easily and safely at scale.

OFGEM - the UK Government's energy regulator - are the biggest obstacle to making full use of #Scotland's #renewable #energy resources.

Energy policy is reserved to the UK Government, so there's absolutely nothing the Scottish Government can do about #Ofgem.

Thread: 1/x
Here's a BBC article where Ofgem have supposedly given the "green light" for the first ever grid connection to Shetland.

(Believe it or not, we're in 2019 and the UK has never bothered to connect #Shetland to the National Grid.)

Unfortunately, approval for the grid connection to Shetland is conditional on the UK Government funding a wind farm project there, which will in turn be conditional on being able to transmit power to the National Grid.

Catch-22.

3 years ago on this very day, I had to install a 20 kW Solar power plant in South Mumbai. It was one of the most challenging projects I have ever done. It was raining like cats & dogs. ++

The roof was tilted and was very slippery. This was the last day of the installation and me & my men had to commission the plant by 5 pm. Each panel weighs around 20 kgs and ppl had to move them over the slippery roofs.++

The electricians had to use use drilling machines to drill holes. Due to the water, they would not work. So another person was employed to hold an umbrella over the drill, like that 125 holes were drilled. These holes were plugged++

Hello 2019! What an exciting year for #cleanenergy its going to be☀️💨. Here's five things I'm looking forward to...
1. Two elections (Federal & NSW) where renewables and climate are squarely on the agenda. I hope to see some of our NSW & Federal Politicians adopt these Big 5 ideas to end the energy wars bit.ly/2BoV9m9. This would mean actual political leadership finally!
2. Lets make 2019 the year when locked out energy users such as renters (like me), low-income households, people who live in apartments & have shaded roofs can actually start to access solar in a big way, with policies in place to support them. For example bit.ly/2BZwOS

Hi guys! @AtteHarjanne and me just published a paper "Abandoning the concept of #renewable #energy" at Energy Policy. In it, we argue that the concept of #renewableenergy (RE) is outdated. 1/

First, a link to the paper that should work until Feb 14:

sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
What we argue here is that using what is basically a 1970s-era definition of renewable energy, and conflating "renewable" with "sustainable" or even "clean," is becoming more a hindrance than a help in meeting the main challenge of the early 2000s - #climatechange . 2/
We argue that the concept of RE was largely set in stone well before the magnitude of #climate challenge, and actual problems with some sources that are technically renewable, was understood. This has resulted to, e.g., using the "renewable" label to cover all bioenergy. 3/

1/ Last week @CoinSharesCo released our latest report on #bitcoin mining along with a follow-up Medium post detailing some of the economic concepts that drive this industry. As promised, here's part two of my follow up - this post re: bitcoin's energy mix: medium.com/coinshares/bew…
2/ Now that the "death spiral" argument has been thoroughly debunked by @arjunblj, @nic__carter, @matt_odell, @danheld and others (👉 medium.com/coinshares/an-…), I want to focus on the second body of our findings: those around bitcoin's energy use and the sources that power it.
3/ While I am a bit hesitant to even engage with those opposed to the inviolability of liberty and the free market () because we just fundamentally disagree, I still have a few things to say on this matter.

France presented today its #energy and #climate strategy. It has four goals:
1 - To cut #energy consumption
2 - To turn away from #fossilfuels
3 - To diversify its #energy mix
4 - To keep things affordable, increase jobs and innovate medias.businessimmo.com/default/0002/3…
The overall target of France's strategy for #energy and #climate is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 through cutting GHG emissions down significantly and also increasing carbon sinks
France wants to cut #CO2 emissions down to 227 Mt in 10 years by cutting final #energy consumption 14% and primary #energy from #fossilfuels by 35%. Also, increasing #renewable heating and doubling the #electricity from renewables. Note: transport emissions vanish by 2050.

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.
