Getting the whole world to #netzero #GHGs rapidly is going to be incredibly difficult. But given how strong and organized the #climateopposition is, we must distinguish #thesignalfromthenoise on which pathways are the most likely to succeed. A 🧵 on how I think about this 1/14
2/ First, we cannot rely on social and lifestyle change governed by new paradigms like degrowth to deliver in time for this #climatedecade. But if the movement delivers small reductions in energy or meat consumption, we need it jackrabbithomes.org/can-we-save-th…
3/ #Technologyandpolicy (and politics) need to do the heavy lifting. Can they deliver? Yes, but to effectively channel our efforts and fight off the opposition, we need to distinguish between main courses, side dishes and poison pills (frequently buried in the side dishes)

ERCOT's Jones tells Carrollton City Council: Generation fleet lost 50,000MW because of equipment failure and lack of fuel supply. That's equal to all of California's peak and was more than half of Texas' entire generation fleet.
#txlege #txenergy
When we lose supply, we have turn to the load side to keep balance. We turn to large facilities that have given us the ability to turn down their usage. (he's talking about #demandresponse which we need more of!!!) Once that's exhausted we have to turn off residential customers.

REAL LIFE CONSEQUENCES:
I sit here, drinking my tea, mired in depression & grief. Today is the day my husband leaves the farm to live in town 80k away because, since the devastating damage of #nswfloods 'I can't handle the farm anymore' ...
We survived the #drought although many of our beloved animals didn't and he had to shoot several. Our herd was decimated by desperate sales & death. The financial, physical & emotional trauma is still in our bodies. And, like most men, his is all bottled up inside. Then came the
#bushfires - 3 months with fire surrounding us. The river had stopped flowing, pools dropping by an inch a day. The air thick with smoke & dust, pregnant with silence & fear. Unlike others nearby, we managed to keep ourselves & property safe 🙏🏻. Then came #covid & an unrelenting

Gestern erschien unser Bericht ”Eine Milliarde Tonnen - CO2-Ausstoß senken und Deutschlands Kohleausstieg beschleunigen” onebilliontons.org erstellt von @Kaikenhuippu und @think_atom
Dieser Thread zeigt die Schwerpunkte und Ergebnisse
1/20
Die Studie berechnet die CO2-Emissionen, die durch eine #Laufzeitverlängerung der deutschen #Kernkraftwerke vermieden werden können (#SaveGER6), wenn stattdessen Kohlekraftwerke und später Gaskraftwerke stillgelegt werden. Das Ergebnis ist der Name: #EineMilliardeTonnen 2/20
Die verbleibenden Reaktoren #GER6 vermeiden rund 60 Millionen Tonnen CO2 pro Jahr.
Bis heute hat der frühe Atomausstieg seit 2011 bereits 500 Millionen Tonnen CO2 verursacht. (und mehr in Zukunft), weil stattdessen fossile Kraftwerke am Netz blieben. 3/20

I recently finished a report ”One Billion Tons – CO2 emissions and a Faster Coal Exit for Germany.” onebilliontons.org. This is a thread of the key points and findings. Report was commissioned by @oekomoderne and done by our non-profit think tank @think_atom 1/n
The study explores the CO2 emissions that could be avoided if Germany kept their #nuclear fleet (#GER6) open and closed coal/lignite, and later fossil gas, production instead. The result is in the name of the report: #onebilliontons 2/n
The remaining nuclear reactors, or #GER6, avoid roughly 60 million tons of CO2 per year. To date, the early, political closures since 2011 have released an extra 500 million tons of CO2 (and much more in the future) as fossil fuel production has been kept running instead. 3/n

1. Time to make 2021 minor updates to my annual “opinions on #solar” thread.
If you like these, you’ll like my 2019 book, Solar Power Finance Without the Jargon, a little old but still valid, five stars on Amazon.
tinyurl.com/y6lc3ohl
2. Solar Power Finance Without the Jargon is the book I should have read before seeking a job in renewables 16 years ago.
Link to 2020 thread. 2019, 2018 and 2017 are linked from there so you can see what I got wrong or changed. tinyurl.com/yr2memtx
3. To the opinions! Solar manufacturing is still a terrible business to be in, though 2020 and 2021 were less harsh than most years. Competition is vicious, the newest factories have the best tech. Older manufacturers carry heavy debt for factories rapidly becoming obsolete.

EU #CoalPhaseOut action plan: 16 EU Members States will be #coal free by 2025, remaining states must follow by 2030 for a cost-efficient #netzero pathway. 6 countries not yet committed to 2030. We identified a policy mix without new fuel lock-ins & minimum costs. Findings 👇1/9 Phasing out coal in the EU’s power system by 2030
Key Finding 1: The EU's 2030 climate target of -55 % requires a complete #coal phase-out in the power system by 2030. An EU-wide #CoalPhaseOut2030 saves 1 billion tons of CO2 compared to 40 % emissions reduction at little additional costs to consumers. 2/9
How will the EU coal phase-out by 2030 affect the price of #electricity? Consumers can expect a price increase of only 0.5 ct/kWh with a policy mix scenario - a figure that is dwarfed by the current increase in #powerprices driven by more costly #fossilgas. 3/9 Phasing out coal in the EU’s power system by 2030

1. I took this photo yesterday during a beautiful sunrise while driving early in the morning from my village to Rotterdam. You can see one of the wind turbines in the eye of the rising sun.

This starts a thread about wind turbines 🧵
🌎

2. The Netherlands has a reputation as a country of windmills to mill grain or pump water, and we still have some 1,100 of the classic types.

But the Dutch were not the first to harness the wind: Ancient Babylonians started some 4,000 years ago.

🧵

🌎

3. At the end of the 19th century, modern wind power was first developed in Denmark, where the first horizontal-axis wind turbines were created in 1891, and a 22.8-meter wind turbine began operation in 1897.

What’s driving the gas price surge? 1/

@PatAlvarezB chalks it up to these factors: Natural gas prices in Europe may remain elevated heading into the winter amid a tightening supply scenario and below-average storage levels, subdued LNG and pipeline imports.

#ONGT #Gas #LNG
2/ The run-up in CO2 prices are also a factor: As CO2 prices increase, electric generators are incentivized to operate cleaner burning #gas plants at the expense of coal, which helps to drive gas demand higher and consequently may provide structural support for higher gas prices.
3/ Will the run-up in #gas prices be transitory or enduring? What about #oil? Is the rise in #carbon prices structural?

Wahlkampfthema #Klimapolitik – wie erreicht DE das 2030-Klimaziel (-65 % ggü 1990)? Im Szenarienvergleich sind sich Gutachter:innen einig: Im Stromsektor muss die neue #BuReg mindestens zwei Punkte in den kommenden Jahren umsetzen. #btw21 1/7 Blog: Es führt nur ein Weg ...
1️⃣ Der Erneuerbaren-Ausbau muss an Tempo gewinnen – d.h. konkret: eine Verdreifachung der jährl. Installationszahlen von #Windkraft + #Solar|anlagen (5–6 GW #Windkraft an Land & 15 GW #Solarenergie). Je nach Szenario braucht DE bis 2030 zw. 435 und 554 TWh erneuerbarem Strom. 2/7
2️⃣ Die #BuReg muss den #Kohleausstieg auf 2030 vorziehen, um die gesetzlich verpflichtenden #Klimaziele zu erfüllen. In allen 2030-Szenarien sinkt #Kohlestrom auf 10 bis max. 28 TWh. Das entspricht dann noch 1 bis max. 5 % der gesamten dt. Stromerzeugung. 3/7

Officially, the German federal government wants to save nothing less than the world #climate. In order to achieve this megalomaniac goal, it does not shy away from any expenditure that costs our economy around 50 billion euros annually in the form of high taxes and subsidies. /1
This moralizing #climate activism makes every German citizen poorer by at least 600 euros per year. /2
But among the heads and chief ideologues of large lobby organizations, there is the naive hope that this massive transformation will finally make #Germany the world champion exporter again - through the export of #climate technology. /3

1- Heavy regulations of oil & gas in favor of green energy will only result in greenwashing oil & gas. So many ways to legally greenwash any fossil fuel.

All of this lead to one result: Carbon neutrality will be the mother of all ENRONS: an unprecedented accounting fraud
2- So, what I can do to make my oil or LNG green? There are so many ways... including enriching Elon Musk and Tesla stockholders! Why? Because some corrupt politicians created laws that make it work that way. Anyway, Auto companies are now paying $Tesla to greenwash their cars!
3- People are going to go crazy when they realize what companies can claim in their carbon neutrality accounting systems! Hey, my stores have had skylights since they were built 40 years ago. I have been green all along but I just learned about it!

The Concord project opted to go with Solar (PV) connected to an energy storage system (battery storage) in lieu of a backup generator.

This system has been designed to keep the critical loads for the home operational even if the utility power is knocked out.
This includes the backup heating and domestic hot water system (gas boiler with radiant floor heat + indirect hot water tank), the refrigerator, freezer, microwave, TV/WiFi, lighting and receptacles in strategic areas.
The Generac PwrCell provides 18 kWh of battery storage in a single cabinet, and up to 9 kW of continuous power output, enough to power the critical loads for extended periods of time. It can also be expanded to 36 kWh of battery storage in the future should it ever be needed.

@AEPTexas said they had 11 critical load customers before the storm in Feb, 171 now. 160 facilities didn't fill out a 2 page form pre-Feb. Wow.


This adds new detail to this from @byjayroot @jblackmanChron @Dexinvestigates #txlege houstonchronicle.com/politics/texas…
@TNMP had 2 gas facilities registered as critical infrastructure before the storm. Now has 177. This really is stunning. They're a small player but have a significant Permian footprint.
