#ERCOT grid update: Things will be tight on the grid today and tomorrow — very tight. ERCOT projecting 82.9 gigawatt peak @ 4pm and a spread between supply and demand of only 1800 megawatts tomorrow around 7pm. #txlege #energytwitter 1/ Image

... is still producing ~9GW in the hour of tightest reserves. The 3+GW of batteries in ERCOT are mostly providing backup reserves in case of shortage (like when a major power plant goes offline like a nuke did last week) but is also injecting 500MW to the market when needed. 3/ ImageImage

With all 6 #ZNPP reactors in ‘cold shutdown’, basically super safe storage, if you don’t think Russians will destroy all other parts of the #Zaporizhzhia #Nuclear Power Plant, & likely do serious damage to the reactor buildings too, you may be living in an alternative universe.
The only thing @iaeaorg achieved, was convincing @energoatom_ua operators, already under extreme duress from RU AF & @RosatomGlobal terrorists, to put remaining reactors into ‘cold shutdown’.

Should #russia-n nationals &/or citizens be removed from the International Atomic Energy Agency @iaeaorg in response for @RosatomGlobal’s illegal occupation of #Zaporizhzhia #Nuclear PP and Putin’s threats of nuclear #weapons use in #Ukraine?
Let’s not forget, Russia crossed a globally accepted redline, first occupying Chernobyl NEZ, then Europe’s largest operating #nuclear power plant… #ZNPP.

Then 🇷🇺threatened it’s safe operations for months, while world & IAEA did nothing but ‘urge’ restraint, of Ukraine also! 🤦🏼‍♂️
After 🇷🇺’s ‘successful’ forcing of ZNPP to shutdown by attacking critical assets not at the plant itself, completely calculated to deceive observers, Russia then threatened the safe operation of all other operating NPPs inside Ukraine in the same, calculated, manner.

"There is no technical, scientific, or environmental reason to ban nuclear energy" - Dr @Jo_Lackenby president of the Australian Nuclear Association.

#auspol Image
Dr @Jo_Lackenby says that removing the ban on nuclear is not an automatic green light for construction but would allow the technology to be assessed on its merits alongside other technology.

Discussion has moved to cost.

Cost is important when considering building a plant, it's not relevant to whether #nuclear should remain banned under an environmental act.

Nuclear energy has the lowest lifecycle environmental impact. There is no justification to ban it.

Since the recent event with arguably the largest echo was the #FOMC decision, it's called - what else- "The Pause That Refreshes"
#FederalReserve Image
The first thing to notice is that goods prices have broadly stabilised and volumes are fairly flat - in other words, #NGDP has ceased its torrid pace of increase. Service prices are still elevated but #payroll cost increase is slowing.
2/n Image
The #ISM #PMI showed an uptick but is still below 50 which implies that revenue growth is NOT about to accelerate again. Again, slower #inflation & flatline volume = an end to the boom, but not yet a bust.

1/ ⚛️ Big news! @TerrestrialMSR just made a huge leap forward with their game-changing Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR) power plant. They've completed Phase 2 of the pre-licensing Vendor Design Review (VDR) with the @CNSC_CCSN…. #nuclear #IMSR
2/ 🌟 This means they're the first high-temperature fission tech to pass this type of review, and it's a massive step in bringing molten salt tech to the mainstream. It'll help industrial giants find practical ways to reduce carbon emissions. #climatechange
3/ 🇨🇦 Canada's 22nd Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, who's on Terrestrial Energy's Advisory Board, is stoked about this progress. He sees it as a new direction for nuclear energy, and a proud moment for Canada! #innovation #cleantech

I would just like to share with you some pictures and some figures

below, a giant excavator (Bagger 288), only one of these machines is able to mine 240 000 m3 of lignite per DAY, enough to emit 1 million tons of CO2 Image
here is the home of this kind of monster, here, the Garzweiller mine (you can see six such machines on the first picture)

the surface occupied (or devastated) by one of these mines represents tens of km², the equivalent of a large city, and they continue to grow, ImageImage
some villages are paying the price for it

the surface devastated by the 9 mines below exceeds 500 km² (200 sq mi)

to give you a scale, the yellow line is 10 km (6 miles) long ImageImageImage

Today and tomorrow, @G7 #Energy ministers meet in #Japan – a country, often considered a “laggard” on #energytransition. What is 🇯🇵’s energy system like and why is it so reluctant to step up #decarbonisation of its economy? A 🧵 1/19…
The “usual” arguments by the 🇯🇵 government when confronted with lack of both action and ambition on #energytransition:
1. #Japan is resource-poor
2. Japan’s geography limits #renewables build-out
3. Technologies & Innovation will solve the transition

How true are they? 2/19
Japan is indeed poor in some resources, most notably #fossilfuels. Fossil fuel based, its energy system is 88% dependent on #oil, #LNG and #coal imports. It has one of the least self-sufficient energy systems, dependent on #oil & gas from #MiddleEast & #coal from #Australia. 3/19 ImageImage

there’s a range of opinions on #nuclear energy — some love it, some hate it, with many energy experts somewhat ambivalent.

…regardless, few will be cheering when germany’s last 3 nukes are retired this weekend while nearby coal power stations spew CO₂.…
german energy policy experts have patiently explained to me that the nuclear phaseout was a prerequisite for the country’s massive investment in renewables.

…but still a great shame the politics couldn’t be turned around, closing #coal first, resulting in much lower emissions.
i’m told that the 3 closed last year and these 3 could technically be restarted.

would be great if 8GW+ of nuclear was swapped for the same capacity of highly polluting brown coal.

(1/5) The enclosed, highly-respected @McKinsey report on #nuclear power from March 2023 surprised me, as it repeated many of our conclusions @GoldsteinJoshua and I reached in our #NuclearNow documentary.
(2/5) Though we started in 2019, and it seemed we were always behind the eight ball, it turns out the same systematic problem continues -- our misunderstanding of atomic energy. Until it is respected & understood, we’re handicapping ourselves in our battle for a civilized future.
(3/5) It’s extremely frustrating to those who’ve worked practically with this energy from Russia to China to the US to France. We need to wake up and realize that civilization is at stake.
