That`s why I am working at @Siemens_Energy: without us the sustainable safeguarding of our livelihoods is in seriously jeopardy, because climate goals could no longer be achieved.
This must be an incentive for us to play a decisive role in the transformation of energy systems and only as the leading stakeholder in hydrogen economy makes it perfect.
One masters the value chains in the power-to-X technologies even though they span from renewable energy generation, water, grid integration, electrochemical process technology to downstream logistics. Experienced players combine their strengths in one new entity: @Siemens_Energy

My report on social implications of heat decarbonisation in cooking appliances (moving away from gas cookers and hobs) for @beisgovuk is in now available @UKERCHQ:…

Special thanks to Ben Walker and @harrybradwell at @beisgovuk for their support & feedback!
It presents a 1st step in tackling 1) How current carbon-intensive cooking technologies are part of existing cooking practices and broader sociomaterial structures 2) Challenges & opportunities for cooking heat decarbonisation, ie consumer acceptance, carbon & energy reductions..
...& market opportunities 3) Interventions needed to realise policy objectives of heat #decarbonisation.
Also includes annotated bibliography of relevant lit & recomm for evidence & data gathering; #research; & #policy.…

[1/7] New publication by @CoalExit @PaoYuOei @CKemfert at @IA4EE EEEP-Journal shows key characteristics & challenges for 100% #renewable energy system modelling.


#OpenAccess paper⬇️…

Unroll Thread for key insights ⏬
[2/7] From utopic and fringe scenarios in the early 2000’s, 100% #RenewableEnergy scenarios are now widespread, with academic discussion shifting from general feasibility issues to specific assumptions. Also thanks to work from Jacobson, Breyer, Brown, …

[3/7] Regarding spatial resolution: for global, regional, and less detailed models, it is important to calibrate in a sufficient manner to avoid over-simplified answers with little to no real insights.

Key limitation: computational limits of very detailed scenarios.

Great event and panel put together by @livemint @UtpalBhaskar converging diverse views from financing, #fossilfuel generation, #energytransition #technology and business operations in the #electricity value-chain! 1/n
As Power Minsiter @RajKSinghIndia rightly said, problems of capacity and #energyaccess has been solved, and the next problem to be solved is reducing #India's #carbonfootprint - #electrification of #mobility and #cooking is one pathway.
Increasing domestic and international demand for #electricity will lead to more #RenewableEnergy capacity installation; new connections and usage will ⬆️domestic demand, integration & #export (neighbors inc #Myanmar #SriLanka) will ⬆️cross-border demand, which India can supply.

#energytwitter @exeterepg @EnergySysCat @EnergyLeeds @EnergyREV_UK @NatureEnergyJnl continuing our energy #ideology theme for the week, we know ideology is a fundamental determinant of whether and if we legislate for an #energytransition…
So overt questions of regulating energy in capitalism are legit terrain for a partisan empirics of energy research. But are we aware how much we enjoy our own more private ideologies? Reactions to @UKLabour energy policy are fascinating.
Responses to a #GreenNewDeal scale home retrofit programme "I already paid to insulate my home [individual responsibility trope] why should I pay for my neighbour's loft insulation [feckless socialist/free stuff trope] even before the finance mechanism is announced.

I have had a major change of heart on an important matter. I would no longer oppose the building of new nuclear power plants - even using conventional technology - on the East Coast. Let me explain why. (Thread) /1
First, as I have said over and over again about the #energytransition, this is geographical. The entire Western Interconnection should have no problem phasing out coal, gas _and_ nukes and moving to very high portions of #renewables - by 2030 or so. /2
The Midwest/Plains should be able decarbonizing electricity using a combination of new renewables and existing nukes in around that timeframe. The South will be harder, unless major offshore wind is deployed. Places like Louisiana could import power from Plains/Midwest wind. /3

We have a new report out on munis & co-ops in Minnesota. Over 2 years, our team (@forsberg_linds, Matt Grimley, Stephanie Lenhert of @EPI_Energy, & @ElizabethJWilso of @Dartmouth) interviewed >50 muni/co-op personnel to learn how they’re engaging w/ DERs
Here's the tweetstorm version:

Munis & co-ops are nonprofit utilities that make decisions fundamentally differently than IOUs. Minnesota has 125 munis & 45 co-ops that serve >1/3 of the state’s electric load (higher than the national rate of 28% served by nonprofit utilities).
Munis and co-ops emphasize democratic, locally controlled principles, so it seems like these utilities would be prime candidates for distributed energy resources (#DERs) that can be locally controlled and participatory.…

We have just published our Review of Energy Policy: 2018!
Check out the thread below for a summary of all our recommendations.
Read the review in full here:
On #Transport: The target for phasing our conventionally fuelled vehicles is inadequate. The @transportgovuk ‘Road to Zero’ (‘ICE ban 2040’) may neither hit the target nor make the early gains needed for a 1.5°C trajectory. @_chris_brand_ @jillian_anable
On #electricity: policy should build on Electricity Market Reform that has worked well & adapt in the light of technology/cost changes. Change in ‘black start’ incentives & other ancillary services are needed to ensure the system remains resilient @energyukcomms @ngcontrolroom
