You might have heard about the campaign to Save Solar in California, due to deliberations by state regulators to reduce compensation for solar producers. We're being played by utility lobbyists, my friends. Here's a thread 🧵 #solarenergy #NEM
If you haven't heard about the "utility death spiral," read the infamous Edison Electric Institute report that identified customer-owned solar as an existential threat to the profits for utility shareholders. drive.google.com/file/d/1tsF2Hq…
So, Point 1: if we're debating whether solar customers get compensated adequately, let's keep in mind that utilities see it as their legal obligation to screw over solar customers to protect their market share. This debate is their debate.

🔋 The demand for #copper from the #GreenEnergy sector could almost quadruple by 2030.
The rapid global transition to environmentally friendly generation increases #NorilskNickel's revenue. The copper business brings 26% of the company's revenue.
$GMKN $MNOD $NILSY #NorNickel Image
Now the demand from the #GreenEnergy sector is 1.4 million tons annually. By 2030, the aggregate demand for #copper may grow by 20% - up to 5.4 million tons.

Transition to green power generation is impossible without #copper. Copper is high-capacity conductor of #electricity, used in #SolarPanels, hydro and #windpower plants. These #renewableenergy systems require 12 times more copper than traditional ones. #solarenergy

Bei #Balkonsolar wird immer wieder von Menschen gesprochen, die ihr “Balkonkraftwerk” einfach einstecken ohne es dem Netzbetreiber zu sagen! Die nennt man dann #GuerillaPV und es fühlt sich verwegen an.
Aber #solarenergy hatte schon immer was von Guerilla, Beispiele im 🧵
1979 die erste Netzgekoppelte Anlage in Europa am Eidgenössische Institut für Reaktorforschung. Solarpaneele importiert aus den USA. Wechselrichter selbst gebaut. “Doch von der Innovation der Netzkopplung erfuhr in dieser Zeit niemand, nicht einmal das örtliche Elektrizitätswerk”

Mainly, there are three types of solar power plants or solar energy systems. Type-1 is a photovoltaic solar energy plant; type-2 is a solar thermal energy plant, and type-3 is a concentrating power plant.

#solarpower #solarenergy
A solar power plant provides the facility that converts sunlight either directly, like photovoltaics, or indirectly, like solar thermal plants, into electricity. It comes in a variety of designs, with each using discretely different techniques to harness the power of the sun.
There are many different types of solar power plants constructed in most parts of the world. It includes the photovoltaic solar energy plant, solar thermal energy plant, and concentrating power plant.

The race is on! The declining COST of wind and solar power is in a race with declining MARKET VALUE: which will win? New research in Joule looks at trends by region, at emp.lbl.gov/news/declining… THREAD! Image
While solar has high value at low penetrations, value falls as output grows – solar is 19% of generation in CAISO, with major drops in value. Wind has low value at every penetration, but has faced less value decline with market share to date. 2/x Image
The biggest value penalties come from the timing of generation not matching high market prices, and from congestion causing pockets of low prices. Curtailment was not a major factor. Value penalties rise with market share. 3/x Image

THREAD: In 2005, the official Annual Energy Outlook saw power sector CO2 rising from 2,400 to 3,000 MMT by 2020. But actual emissions fell to 1,450 MMT, 52% below projected levels. A new @BerkeleyLab report looks at how we got “halfway to zero.” emp.lbl.gov/publications/h… 1/11
The biggest change was drastically less demand for electricity, due in part to sectoral and economic changes, but also to greater energy efficiency driven by policies and technology advancement. Instead of rising by 24% it was dead flat. 2/11
And as demand stayed flat, cheaper natural gas from the shale gas revolution combined with the rapid growth of wind and solar power to squeeze out coal. Some nuclear retirements were offset by greater output at existing plants. 3/11

Oh my eyes! You have seen a whole lot;

Oh my nose! You have perceived great smells and lovely aromas;

Oh my hands! You have tilled the ground;

Oh my legs! You have treaded many beautiful places.

Now is the time to relax & enjoy the beauty of humanity packaged in one delivery
Enjoy d peppered chicken, dance to d beat of its drumsticks & have tasty bites of d meaty chicken breast.

Open wide the door of your abode, split d curtains apart & have a feel of the view of your neighborhood, listen to the sound of the fulfillment of having your own house.
Sit & relax to enjoy a family time with your favourite programs though there's blackness in the neighborhood. Enjoy the radiance of the power of the sun in your home.

The community residents are pointing their fingers at your home; they love the colours, #solarenergy

It is a new tool box. A way to apply new thinking to the problems of contemporary life. What are we DOING when we change something in a system like #energy #transport #housing or #food?

We are changing a system which makes us free. Free to cook, clean, move and shelter.
So it is never just #energy #energytransition work we are doing. We are not just trying to hit #netzero we are intervening in peoples lives and #capabilities

These freedoms are part of a contract between individuls, society and institutions.

Building as batteries for a flexible energy grid
Hao Huang @BuildingsAlive
#SummerStudy20 #smartbuildings
By collecting data from chillers, cooling towers, water pumps, and return air fans, #building System engineers and designers can anticipate regions for increasing load in non-peak energy periods
Increasing load of chillers in off-peak hours can quite literally save costs & build demand for renewable energy. Plus, this can help electric grids adapt loads as renewable energy sources fluctuate

(when the sun goes down or the wind stops blowing)

Day 1: Criminal Justice Reform. Recent police-involved killings and public outcry have made it clear that our systems of policing and criminal justice need to be transformed. You can read our entire R.E.F.O.R.M. plan on how we will address this issue here: drwoodymyers.com/criminal-justi…
Day 2: Repairing our Criminal Justice System. We need to expand intervention efforts to keep people out of traditional courts and prisons. This includes decriminalizing mental illness and addiction, growing homelessness intervention, and ending the school-to-prison pipeline.

@phenrikand 1/ I’ve been in the digital cash and eMoney space since 1999 for co-design bit.ly/NavyCash It was centralised command control money digital USD on an EMV card where the backend -> every transaction traced & tracked by float manager @jpmorgan debitcard ATMs via @Mastercard
@phenrikand @jpmorgan @Mastercard 2/ Every Navy base & every ship in a flotilla was like an island🌴 at sea (at any point in time it could have only local and no or limited comms back to treasury) Similar to today’s offchain and onchain networks eventually reconciliation would happen. DoubleSpends manual captured
@phenrikand @jpmorgan @Mastercard 3/ Proof of Work Blockchains tend to centralisation. The top5 PoW 💥 Blockchains generally work 💪and have a huge bounty on their embedded value across their networks PoS and others not so much
