If you think this problem is limited to the oil industry think again!
Abandoned wind, solar farms, & EV batteries are going to be a bigger problem in the next three decades. #OOTT #oil

The cost to clean up New Mexico’s oil & gas industry? $8 billion. grist.org/energy/new-mex…
"That left the turbines at Altamont Pass and in other locations across California such a as San Gorgonio and Tehachapi passes to, in some cases, fall into disrepair as companies that built them went belly up." #Wind

We released a report yesterday w/ @350Montana & @GridLabEnergy on "Affordable & Reliable
Decarbonization Pathways for
Montana." Here is a short thread...
First, report is here: vibrantcleanenergy.com//wp-content/up…

Second, Exec summary is here: vibrantcleanenergy.com//wp-content/up…

Third, More can be found @350Montana: 350montana.org/2021/05/27/the…
We performed five scenarios for the MT #grid. Long-story-short, the MT grid can run #reliably without #coal or #naturalgas & become 100% #renewable by 2035. MT still needs import/exports w/ other regions; but exports far more than imports. Image shown is 2050.

New report: ‘The Sky’s The Limit’ finds huge falls in the cost of #solar & #wind power have unlocked an energy reserve that can meet world demand 100x over! Most is already economic compared with #FossilFuels carbontracker.org/reports/the-sk…
At current growth rates, #renewables will push #FossilFuels out of the electricity sector by 2035, & 2050 could see a world powered entirely by electricity. Author @KingsmillBond says: “we're entering a new era, comparable to the industrial revolution” carbontracker.org/reports/the-sk…
.@KingsmillBond continued: "Geopolitics will be transformed as nations are freed from expensive imports of #coal, #oil & #gas. Clean #renewables will free the planet from the impact of fossil fuel pollution." carbontracker.org/reports/the-sk…

(1/22) Our new paper @NatureEnergyJnl (rdcu.be/cikbq) proposes a solution to break the deadlock in negotiations between #Ethiopia 🇪🇹, #Sudan 🇸🇩 & #Egypt 🇪🇬 on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (#GERD) on the #BlueNile – with help of #solar and #wind power. Thread👇 Image
(2/22) The #BlueNile (Abay) is highly seasonal, with extreme differences in flow between dry and wet months. #GERD’s reservoir is so large it can store the full annual flow & deliver #hydropower at a stable rate throughout the year - suppressing the river flow #seasonality. Image
(3/22) Delivering hydropower w/o seasonality makes loads of sense from Ethiopian perspective, but overhauls natural timing of water reaching #Sudan & #Egypt. Behind many disagreements on #GERD lies downstream countries’ fear of s/o upstream having control over #BlueNile flow… Image

⚡️ 10 Tweet Thread - Global Power Sector in 2020

What happened in 2020?
⏸️Pandemic paused electricity demand growth
⏩Wind and solar grew +315 TWh (+15%)
⏪Replacing coal generation -346 TWh (-4%)

[1/10] Ember's #GER21 Report
ember-climate.org/global-electri…
Growth in #wind and #solar helped drive global #coal power to a record fall of 4%.

Except in China. Despite impressive wind & solar growth, this didn’t keep up with electricity demand, so coal rose to fill the gap.

[2/10] #GER21
ember-climate.org/global-electri…
Almost a TENTH of global electricity in 2020 was supplied by wind turbines and solar panels.

Impressively, it has doubled since 2015, from 4.6% to 9.4%.

Most G20 countries are on the same journey, around the global average 🇮🇳🇨🇳🇯🇵🇧🇷🇺🇸🇹🇷

Nå, #FCKFCM klokken 16, folkens. Det blir vildt og definerende. Lad os sætte fokus på #Kaba mod #Wind.

Kluntet angriber mod #sldk's komet? Moneyball mod talent?

Lidt nuancer til to folk, der bestemt ikke har haft ret imponerende sæsoner.

[Tråd]

#Leandertal
Først de rå tal på Sory Kaba

16 #sldk kampe, 12 fra start. 1.127 spilminutter
6 mål - 0,48 mål pr. 90 minutter
3 assists

Og derefter #Leandertal: Image
Kaba ejer ikke en placeret inderside. "Plaffe-afslutningen", hvor han kigger ned på bolden mens han sparker, er efterhånden trademark. "Placerede afslutninger" er godt nok i overvægt, men 13 ud af 16 er hovedstød. En af de placerede er Table of Luck målet mod FCK 1 meter fra mål.

11 March 2021 marks the 10th anniversary of the #Fukushima nuclear accident. Due to Fukushima, Germany reinstated in 2011 the nuclear phase-out decided in 2000, after a short 10-month-period of abandoning it - and the #Energiewende became political consensus. A thread on FAQs: /1
To start: Where do we currently stand in the #nuclear phase-out in DE? Since 2000, 13 nuclear power plants have been shut down, 11 of which since 2011. Six more will follow by the end of 2022. So far, we have achieved a good half of the nuclear phase-out. /2
Now to the FAQs:
(1) How has the share of nuclear power changed since 2011? The share of #nuclear power in the #electricity mix in DE has halved from 22% (2010) to 11% (2020), while the share of #renewables has more than doubled from 17% (2010) to a full 45% (2020). /3

Am 11. März 2021 jährt sich der GAU von #Fukushima zum 10. Mal. Wenig später kam das Atom-Moratorium, anschließend der Ausstieg aus dem Ausstieg aus dem #Atomausstieg und die #Energiewende wurde politischer Konsens. Damals gab es viele Fragen - ein kleiner Rückblick im Thread: /1 Image
Zunächst: Wo stehen wir aktuell beim #Atomausstieg in DE? Seit 2011 wurden 11 AKWs abgeschaltet, 6 weitere werden bis Ende 2022 folgen. Bisher haben wir also gut die Hälfte des Atomausstiegs geschafft. /2 Image
(1) Wie hat sich der Anteil von Atomstrom seit 2011 geändert? Seit 2010 hat sich der Anteil der #Atomkraft am #Strommix in DE von 22% auf 11 % (2020) halbiert, der Anteil der #Erneuerbaren stieg von 17% (2010) auf ganze 45% (2020) um mehr als das Doppelte an. /3 ImageImage

"For the EU hydro is projected to increase with global warming and nuclear to decrease...increased #hydro in northern Europe and a decline in hydropower and #nuclear power in southern Europe due to lower water availability for direct production and cooling of river-based plants..
"In northern Europe substitution effects, i.e. increasing availability of cheaper #hydropower, could result in lower production costs, while they would increase in southern Europe."
"#Wind and #solar production are not affected significantly by global warming. Improved cooling technologies have the potential to strongly reduce the negative effects of water scarcity, particularly for nuclear plants in southern Europe."

Letzten Freitag war ich beim Nationalen Wassersstoffrat in einer Anhörung zu Gast. Es ging um die Weiterentwicklung der Wasserstoff-Strategie und den Markthochlauf von #H2. Die Zusammenfassung meiner Stellungnahme im THREAD. (1/11)
Nur grüner #Wasserstoff hilft wirklich für Klimaneutralität. Warum? Bei blauem und türkisem #H2 gibt es immer Restemissionen. Blau & Türkis können deswegen nur Übergangslösungen auf dem Weg zur #Klimaneutralität2050 sein. (2/11)
Ein Blick in unser Szenario #KlimaneutralesDeutschland2050 zeigt: Bis 2030 benötigen wir ordentliche Mengen H2: 64 TWh und bis 2050 432 TWh H2/PtL – für Industrie, Energieversorgung im Winter in Zeiten ohne Wind sowie PtL für den internationalen Flug- und Schiffsverkehr. (3/11)

@JesseJenkins @ERCOT_ISO spokesman says 34 GW went offline. "Majority" were thermal—#gas, #coal, #nuclear. "We don't know exactly why, but ... we'll figure out why that happened."
@JesseJenkins @ERCOT_ISO I'm awaiting @ERCOT_ISO clarification on precisely which generators/capacity went out or are still out, and how #wind and #solar capacity is factored into or compared as basis of total outage. 34 GW is a lot—ERCOT total installed capacity at 2020-end was ~77.2 GW.
@ERCOT_ISO @ERCOT_ISO: "Most of those generators that went offline ... last night, were either—there a few additional wind generators that went offline during the night—but the majority of them were thermal generators, like generation fueled by gas, coal, or nuclear"

🇪🇺 10 Tweet Thread of the EU Power Sector in 2020

Key findings of our fifth annual report with @AgoraEW

1. Renewables overtook fossil fuels as the EU’s main source of electricity in 2020.

ember-climate.org/project/eu-pow…
2. Renewables generated 38% of Europe’s electricity in 2020, overtaking fossil fuels (37%). Nuclear power generated 25% of EU-27 electricity.

This green milestone was also reached in Spain and Germany in 2020.

EU Power Sector in 2020: ember-climate.org/project/eu-pow…
3. This transformation has been driven by rapid growth in #wind and #solar power generation, which have almost doubled since 2015 to deliver 1/5 of EU electricity in 2020.

Personal #preparedness lessons from the #wind #storm: 1. Upgraded UPS units worked great, much better than UPS-destroying planned blackout. APC 19 inch rackmount units, ex-corporate units. 1/x
2. SMA solar inverter's SPS (Secure Power Supply) worked very well for recharging 2 of the 3 identical model UPS units. Third triggered GFCI outlet I have on the SPS every time. 2/
3. UPS unit powering my switch, Wi-Fi router lasted 5 hours before I had to charge it with the solar. Another UPS--with new batteries from Amazon--powering just few other components lasted 3.5 hours, those batteries are not very good. UPS on desktop only lasted 2 hours. 3/

🇪🇺 Ein EU-Ziel von -55% netto bis 2030 also.

🇦🇹 Österreich will bis 2040 sogar -100% netto schaffen und damit beim #RaceToNetZero schneller durchs Ziel laufen.

Neben #Energieeffizienz sind #Erneuerbare dabei entscheidend. Aber wo stehen wir da?

1 Minithread mit neuen Zahlen 🧵
Wie ihr oben seht ist der Anteil Erneuerbarer in Österreich mit knapp einem Drittel schon höher als in anderen Ländern (PEV). Das liegt vor allem an der Wasserkraft und der Nutzung von biogener Energie 🌲.

Wie man an Deutschland sieht holen andere Länder aber stark auf.
Als Teil der EU hat Österreich auch ein Ziel bekommen, das bis 2020 erreicht werden muss: Einen Erneuerbaren-Anteil von 34,0 % am Bruttoendenergieverbrauch.

Das sollte sich ausgehen, 2019 sind wir bei 33,6% gelegen.

(Die Werte ab hier werden etwas anders berechnet als oben)

Today severe cyclone Nivar will hit eastern coast of India. In 12 seconds learn how coastal green shelter belts check tsunami & cyclones. Dutch research institute Deltares.
We are facing one more #cyclone today. So let me remind you. #Mangroves;

- acts as buffer & reduce impact of cyclones & #storm surge.
- they break the #wind force
- provide #habitat to #animals during cyclone or otherwise
- they reduce #pollution.

We just need to protect them.
So how it works. Mangroves create a maze & dense habitat. With species which are salt tolerant & have special adaptations. They act like buffer & which slow down wind & consume energy. So after passing, the storms get dampen. You must have read in ‘Theory of Vibration’.

🧵🧵 ⚡️NEW STUDY RELEASE⚡️ 🧵🧵

Colorado can reduce electricity cumulatively save $1.8 billion by 2040. At the same time, it can grow the electricity job market by 70,000 and reduce GHG emissions by 75% from 2005 levels.

@holycrossenergy @IREAcoop @DrChrisClack @achoukulkar
It can do all this by:
1) Coordinating transmission planning across Colorado;

2) Designing transmission tariffs and access spread across Colorado;

#transmission Transmission topology between utilities and cooperatives acr
3) Ensuring all utilities and cooperatives join the same Energy Imbalance Market (best for whole US is when all CO joins the WEIM);

4) Deploy wind, solar, and storage throughout Colorado;

5) Sell the excess Coloradan wind and solar to other states in the West.

New analysis for the We Mean Business coalition🌿green recovery plans boost 💷income👩‍🔧employment and 📈GDP *better than return-to-normal stimulus measures* with the added benefit of reducing carbon emissions (1/5) #greenrecovery #buildbackbetter
bit.ly/3kbiewr
In all geographies modelled (global, the EU, Germany, Poland, the UK, USA and India), green recovery plans were found to be more effective than return to normal stimulus approaches that reduce #VAT rates and encourage households to resume #spending (2/5)
The green recovery plans modelled are 5-point plans and include a smaller VAT reduction plus:
Public investment in #energyefficiency and electricity grid upgrades
Subsidies for #wind + #solar
Car scrappage schemes (subsidies only provided to #EVs) Tree planting programmes (3/5)

1/4 #Nuclear power plants are bespoke, slow to build, and fat tailed for financial and safety risks. #Wind farms and #energystorage are modular, fast, and thin tailed.
2/4 By choosing wind over nuclear, the risk of regression to the tail will be significantly reduced, and #climate goals will be achieved sooner. This is just one example. Many others exist.
3/4 Every investment alternative must be assessed in this manner to ensure that #stimulus spending becomes a boost instead of a drag on the economy. The latter is happening more often than we like to think.

The world's largest investor in #RenewableEnergy, @NextEraEnergy, sees US wind costs declining by 10% annually for the next four years, so even as subsidies cease, #wind will be the low cost source of new supply. #coal can't compete. 🇺🇸✅
investor.nexteraenergy.com/~/media/Files/…
And @NextEraEnergy expects ~10% annual solar deflation to continue as well, remaining the second lowest source of new electricity in the US.
And batteries are seeing deflation of ~16% pa, meaning 4 hour storage will cost ~US$4-9/MWh by 2022, challenging peaking applications for fossil gas (solar already destroys that antiquated idea of gas base-load).
Other than @ScottMorrisonMP, who thinks a gaslit recovery works?!
