Our new modelling report from @DavidSuzukiFDN shows that 100% zero-emissions electricity across Canada by 2035 is possible, reliable and affordable.

Buckle up for a #CleanElectricity thread 🧵…

#Climate #energytwitter #cdnpoli
This is the first modelling report of its kind in Canada. It goes beyond #NetZero to reach #ZeroEmissions by 2035, primarily by relying on:

☀️#Renewables like wind & solar
🌊Existing #Hydropower
🔌More grid connections between regions Image
Overall, Canada's electricity capacity grows by 2.8x by 2050, and the amount of electrical energy we use grows by 1.8x

All #FossilFuels on the grid are phased out by 2035, including all #NaturalGas. And no nuclear or fossils with #CCUS are needed. ImageImage

👀¿Sabías que la #piel también recibe radiación #solar en primavera, por lo que es importante protegerla debidamente? Dentro hilo 👇
☀️A partir de la primavera estamos más tiempo expuestos al sol y recibimos más radiación cuya cantidad depende de factores como la altitud y la época del año.
😱Las radiaciones #UVA pueden provocar envejecimiento prematuro (#fotoenvejecimiento) como arrugas y manchas solares.

1/3 DTE's current case before the MPSC is set on ending the residential solar industry in Michigan. They want to slash the credit people get for generating energy and charge solar owners obscene monthly fees. #DemCastMI #Solar Image
2/3 If DTE succeeds, rooftop solar will be out of reach for future residential customers, unaffordable for current solar users, and may end MI's residential #solar industry. The MPSC must deny DTE's proposal to protect affordability, our climate, & 1000s of jobs.

Der Nirvana-Fehlschluss, das #Pareto-Prinzip, die #Impfgegner, Wohnwagen, GVOs - und was das alles mit der #Klimakrise zu tun hat.
Oder: Warum eine unvollkommene Lösung meist besser ist als gar keine Lösung.
Ein Thread.🧵
#Impfgegner behaupten, das eine Impfung nicht zu 100% gegen #COVID_19 schützt.
Diese Aussage an sich ist völlig korrekt - aber das hat ja auch niemand behauptet, oder?
Die Tatsache, das etwas nicht zu 100 % effektiv ist, bedeutet NICHT, dass wir es nicht dennoch tun sollten!
Sicherheitsgurte, Helme, Kondome, Fallschirme: alles weitere Beispiele für Dinge, die keinen 100%-igen Schutz bieten (die Liste ließe sich verm. beliebig verlängern).
Aber dennoch stellt niemand ernsthaft deren Benutzung in Frage.

Does green growth foster green policies? In our new article we investigate #RenewableEnergy value chains and find that local value creation leads to higher renewable energy #policy ambition #policyfeedback
Take a look:… (1/4) Image
We analyzed how technological change affects the relationship between governments and firms; growth in manufacturing and R&D of renewables increases industries’ resources to push for ambitious policies. We also see learning effects among policy makers (2/4) Image
We find that #technology #policy #feedback effects differ based on involved value chain segments in the #wind and #solar #energy sector. Manufacturing is associated with stronger policy feedbacks than R&D. (3/4)

Solar "I will be promoting is many different ways this year." "Not just mini album, drama OST and musical, I will be promoting/active in many different ways, please look forward to it"

#마마무 #솔라
Solar: To be casted alongside with lots of amazing people, I'm really nervous.

Solar: Since this is my first time in a musical, I fully understand the people who are worried about whether I will be able to pull off the character 'Mata Hari' well .
Solar: My goal is to capture the hearts of the audiences and produce satisfying results.

Musical MATA HARI will open its first show at Charlotte Theater on 28th May

Kill Heel OST 'Dun Dun Dun' Solar: "The song that that hypnotize me to make me think that I'm the best'

Solar: Listen to my song and gain lots of confidence!

#마마무 #솔라
Solar: When I saw the casts for the drama, I had the thought of 'This is amazing' 'It's such an honour' and decided to take up the offer.

Solar: When I first head the song, I questioned myself 'Will I be able to sing this song well?'

#마마무 #솔라
Solar: This is a song that is filled with confidence so I sang it while hypotizing myself that 'I'm the best in this world'

Solar: I was worries if I could blend in to the emotions of the drama. I've put in lots of effort in expressing the emotions (through the song)

Now might be a good time to spread the good word of #nuclear power amid a #petrol crisis driven by a war that most certainly won’t be the only major war of the 20s or century for that matter.

Nuclear power is not an IF, or MAYBE, it’s a MUST.
Renewables aren’t universally applicable nor are they low on land intensity. Long term solutions in wind and solar aren’t really going to be possible or economically feasible unless you plan to raze thousands of miles to create mega #solar and #wind farms.
#Nuclear is low on land intensity and over time will in a large enough quantity likely outproduce gargantuan and exagerrated wind and solar facilities.

Regardless of your stance on climate change this should be something we all strive for. Nuclear is the best future we have.

Thread alert!🧵 Myself and @E3G colleagues had been toying around with writing a blog summarising the impacts of the #Russia/Ukraine crisis on the global #coal-to-clean transition, when it was pointed out that any such blog would be outdated and irrelevant within days.
Instead, we’ve decided to pull together a regularly updated meta-thread bringing together the sharpest analysis out there. A few caveats to kick things off…
The Russian invasion of #Ukraine is clearly a very fluid situation, and at the centre of it lies a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. People are dying and lives ruined. This is *not* something to refer to as an ‘opportunity’ (looking at some #climate commentators, here).

We analysed annual power generation data for 209 countries from 2000 to 2020, with 2021 data included for 75 countries representing 93% of global power demand.

What did we find? #Wind and #solar took off!

[2/10] #GER22…
50 countries have now crossed the 10% #wind and #solar landmark, with 7 new countries in 2021 hitting the milestone for the first time: 🇨🇳🇯🇵🇲🇳🇻🇳🇦🇷🇭🇺🇸🇻

Una reflexión sobre la #electricidad/luz
Llevamos ya meses, y ahora más con la guerra en #Ucrania, con la cantinela que la luz es muy cara, y en los últimos días, o semanas, el sur de Europa se está movido para presionar la UE en el cambio de la forma de fijar su #precio.
Aunque lo que nunca se hace es ir a la origen del “problema”, todo queda #folclore sensacionalista y un victimismo rancio. Pero en Alemania, Holanda, Austria o Dinamarca, estos precios de la #luz vinculados al #gas no suponen un gran problema. ¿Por qué?
Precisamente porque se vincularon al gas. ¿Alguien se ha dado cuenta de que Alemania es el principal productor de energía #solar de Europa? ¡Alemania!! ¿En el norte? ¿Con días cortos? ¿...y España, y #Portugal, y Grecia o Italia? Lo qué más se joden con la luz cara por #gas.

Been seeing so many people suggest that the solution for the energy crisis is to build out more #RenewableEnergy such as #solar/#wind. I have nothing against these technologies and long term they may show promise, but in the short term we need to do some math first. #energy 1/12
The world consumes 25,000 TW hours of electricity per year, which is equivalent to 25 billion megawatt hours (MWh) per year. It would require roughly 12 million MW of installed capacity of solar/wind power to produce this quantity of electricity. #energy 2/12
Currently, about 4.3 million MW of fossil fuel generated power produces nearly 2/3 of the world's electricity. This is due to their increased capacity factor and the intermittency of solar/wind. In other words, the wind & sun aren't always blowing & shining. #energy 3/12 Image

Alle Menschen, die sich über die eh schon gestiegenen #Energiepreise, die durch den #Angriffskrieg #Putin|s noch mehr steigen werden, berechtigterweise aufregen

👉beschweren könnt ihr euch über folgende "Portale":
16 Jahre "regiert" und 16 Jahre ihre Aufgaben nicht erledigt.
#Solar-Branche gekillt und #Windkraft|ausbau zum Erliegen gebracht, statt #Energiewende.
#Erdgas als "Brückentechnologie" gepriesen und allen Warnungen zum Trotz sich mehr und mehr von #Putin abhängig gemacht.
Die #CDU hat dieses Land in einem desaströsen Zustand hinterlassen und statt konstruktiver Oppositionsarbeit, wie vor einigen Wochen versprochen, werden die eigenen Versäumnisse gnadenlos der neuen Regierung angekreidet.

"(...) Europe is now its largest export market for solar products, according to a China Photovoltaic Industry Association (CPIA) report on the outlook for the PV industry over the next few years"…
Due to the energy policy failures in the West especially in the last 10 years, whether in the #EU or in the #USA, the urgently needed #energytransition is currently not possible without Chinese products.
In other words: besides the strategic dependencies on #natural gas, #oil and #uranium, which we feel so much right now, we have created with our eyes wide open the next #dependency also on #solar energy.
