The conversation about #SouthAfrica's looming #electricitycrisis HAS to include coal.

Here's why: 🧵🧵 Image

Our energy sector is the 🥈 highest Green House Gas emitter of all the World's Industrializing countries (the G20) 🥲🌍🥲. Coal is responsible for roughly 85% of our energy generation 🤯.


👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻… Image

Coal is becoming less #efficient 📉
Its increasing Energy Return on Investment (or EROI) means that a higher energy input is needed to generate electricity!
The exact opposite of #renewable energy☘️… 🙄🙄

53.4% of all voters said they think the Government should be doing more to tackle #climate change

This was consistent for swing voters, Red Wall voters, and slightly lower for Conservative voters. Image
Support was high for #renewable developments in respondents' area

64% supported new onshore wind development.

68% supported a #solar park in their local area.

Onshore wind garnered a notable 67% support in the red wall.

Only 23% would support a fracking site in their area. Image

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

Little 🧵about #climatechange

I consider myself non-politically aligned; because I want to be able to talk to everyone about issues that I think are important. I do seek allies, and I have many. But they know, I'm willing to reach out to other people.
About #climatechange I do think it is serious, but I have actually read all the literature to be able to explain why. Most just yell stuff into the void.

I am worried about the tropics. couple billion people live there. Worried about water & Crops.
#climate for those who don't know, isn't just a sunny day in December or Frost in April... You see people post stuff like, how can it be #climatechange if... and then you see a picture of snow.

How to say that you intend to build 20 GW of fossil gas-fired power stations without saying that you intend to build 20 GW of fossil gas-fired power stations?

All you have to do is announce that they are "H2 ready", i.e. that they will be able to burn #hydrogen in a future that is not your responsibility but that of your successors.

Of course, if these plants continue to burn fossil gas in 10-20 years, your successors will be the ones to blame, because they won't have implemented all the necessary measures to switch to H2.

Anyway, you won't be in charge anymore so it won't be your problem.

1/9 The economic top-institute @DIW_Berlin in Germany brought out a new study “Expansion #nuclear power without technical and economic basis”.… @CKemfert
A little thread about some unsurprising, but for some maybe remarkable findings. Image
2/9 Unsurprising is the conclusion that #nuclear has priced itself out of the market. Construction costs of current generation III+ would have to be reduced with 2/3 in order to maintain the global 10% market share in power production. But those costs are still increasing.
3/9 #SMRs of the light-water type would need production units of several thousands (per design!) to break even their disadvantage of scale, and that would need global harmonisation of #nuclear regulation. Dreams, dreams…

1/ Welcome to the bi-weekly #CleanTechEU thread!🧵👇

This week is a dive into the recently adopted #hydrogen delegated act on #additionality, what we asked for, why, and what made it to the final text & what got lost in compromises.🔎
2/ 1st things 1st: making #RenewableHydrogen means needing #RenewableElectricity ⚡️

When connecting an electrolyser to most of #EU’s electricity grids, the #H2 produced will have a very high #CarbonFootprint🏭👣 Image
3/ But, this can be fixed. Here are a few rules that can ensure that #hydrogen produced on the grid has a minimal climate impact:

1/ With all the talk about France's latest law on mandatory #solar roofing of car parks above 80 spaces, we think it's time to start talking about other symbiotic solar relationships 👇🧵
2/ Although car parks and roof buildings are optimal unused space in urban areas, there is also the need for #offgrid electricity ⚡ in rural areas which often rely on diesel generators when solar 🌞 PV isn't available.
3/ Also, climate change 🌎 is making #farming yields increasingly uncertain, and many farmers want to diversify their earnings to become more resilient

Yesterday, we held the first "Defence and Statecraft Forum" & we were honoured to welcome a number of great guests. For those that couldn't make it, we are going to write a thread on the main points (in no particular order)🧵 /1

@Brussels_School #Defence #Statecraft
Supporters of #Ukraine are not doing enough to think about the plan for and repercussions of the country's eventual accession to the #EU and #NATO. One implication is that political and military support will have to be drastically enhanced. /2
Western countries have been providing weapons and support to #Ukraine, albeit more can certainly been done. However, as Ukraine presses #Russia there is a need to send Main Battle Tanks and Armoured Fighting Vehicles, as well as to ramp up deliveries of munitions.

Dear @GretaThunberg
I've read in Spanish press ur article and I'd like to tell u, with all due respect for ur work in the fight against #ClimateEmergency, that the approach seems to me to be a mistake. If you will allow me, I would like to explain why 👇…
#biomass IS a #renewable #resources
Well managed, it's perfectly #sustainable

Obviously, there r places where things r done badly. For sure.

The situation isn't the same in northern Europe, where u r from, as it's in the south, where I'm from
We've broken the trophic chain... ImageImage
and it must be recovered, because now, we've we have in many areas of Europe an accumulation of energy due to a lack of herbivores, and a lack of a natural fire regime. Because fire, in a large part of Europe, is part of the natural system

You don't have to take my word for it Image

I often hear that #nuclear power and #renewable energy can't work together.

In reality: they can, they do, and they will.

And they must.

Nuclear power is learning new tricks to adapt to electricity grids with high wind/solar fractions. Let's talk about a few:
One of the core features of nuclear power is that a reactor can run at 100% power for 12-24 months without interruption. It's baseload power.

But reactors change power level all the time - for maintenance and when the grid requires it. And the modern grid *will* require it.
The nuclear industry calls it "flexible operations." If power prices are very low a reactor can reduce its power level to minimize grid congestion.

No control room in the world wants to change power if they don't have to, but nuclear (and coal) are learning to be flexible.

#Renewable Power Generation Costs in 2021 from @IRENA is out

The headline isn't quite what you'd expect:

The global weighted average cost of new #solar #photovoltaics (#PV), onshore and offshore #WindPower projects fell in 2021.

Despite rising equp. costs.

Lets see why 1/n
@IRENA 1st up the data:

Year on year change:

⬇️LCOE of onshore wind projects added in 2021 fell by 15%, year-on-year, to USD 0.033/kWh
⬇️ Utility-scale solar PV and offshore wind LCOE fell by 13% year-on-year to USD 0.048/kWh & USD 0.075/kWh respectively
⬆️ CSP up 7% though

@IRENA This is despite rising equipment costs from the end of 2020, albeit unevenly.

Solar PV module prices in Europe up modestly in 2021, but looking to be 20% or more higher in 2022, given underlying materials and shipping cost increases, but perhaps more (more on that later...)

@Zepaks 2/ Na początek kilka informacji:
- podjąłem się analizy jako challenge mema @dingoromuald, którego komentarz (2 mld PLN EBITDA'23) vs. MCap (ok. 1 mld PLN) wydał mi się na tyle absurdalny, że postanowiłem sam to sprawdzić;
- analiza jest wyrazem mojego własnego postrzegania spraw
@Zepaks @DingoRomuald 3/ - nie gwarantuję, że jest ona wolna od wad i błędów, choć starałem się dołożyć staranności, aby konkluzje były oparte na danych, faktach i racjonalnych założeniach;
- jestem otwarty na ich krytykę i dyskusję w temacie;
- jednocześnie zachęcam do własnego researchu i analizy!
