ERCOT's Jones tells Carrollton City Council: Generation fleet lost 50,000MW because of equipment failure and lack of fuel supply. That's equal to all of California's peak and was more than half of Texas' entire generation fleet.
#txlege #txenergy
When we lose supply, we have turn to the load side to keep balance. We turn to large facilities that have given us the ability to turn down their usage. (he's talking about #demandresponse which we need more of!!!) Once that's exhausted we have to turn off residential customers.

Gestern erschien unser Bericht ”Eine Milliarde Tonnen - CO2-Ausstoß senken und Deutschlands Kohleausstieg beschleunigen” onebilliontons.org erstellt von @Kaikenhuippu und @think_atom
Dieser Thread zeigt die Schwerpunkte und Ergebnisse
1/20
Die Studie berechnet die CO2-Emissionen, die durch eine #Laufzeitverlängerung der deutschen #Kernkraftwerke vermieden werden können (#SaveGER6), wenn stattdessen Kohlekraftwerke und später Gaskraftwerke stillgelegt werden. Das Ergebnis ist der Name: #EineMilliardeTonnen 2/20
Die verbleibenden Reaktoren #GER6 vermeiden rund 60 Millionen Tonnen CO2 pro Jahr.
Bis heute hat der frühe Atomausstieg seit 2011 bereits 500 Millionen Tonnen CO2 verursacht. (und mehr in Zukunft), weil stattdessen fossile Kraftwerke am Netz blieben. 3/20

I recently finished a report ”One Billion Tons – CO2 emissions and a Faster Coal Exit for Germany.” onebilliontons.org. This is a thread of the key points and findings. Report was commissioned by @oekomoderne and done by our non-profit think tank @think_atom 1/n
The study explores the CO2 emissions that could be avoided if Germany kept their #nuclear fleet (#GER6) open and closed coal/lignite, and later fossil gas, production instead. The result is in the name of the report: #onebilliontons 2/n
The remaining nuclear reactors, or #GER6, avoid roughly 60 million tons of CO2 per year. To date, the early, political closures since 2011 have released an extra 500 million tons of CO2 (and much more in the future) as fossil fuel production has been kept running instead. 3/n

EU #CoalPhaseOut action plan: 16 EU Members States will be #coal free by 2025, remaining states must follow by 2030 for a cost-efficient #netzero pathway. 6 countries not yet committed to 2030. We identified a policy mix without new fuel lock-ins & minimum costs. Findings 👇1/9 Phasing out coal in the EU’s power system by 2030
Key Finding 1: The EU's 2030 climate target of -55 % requires a complete #coal phase-out in the power system by 2030. An EU-wide #CoalPhaseOut2030 saves 1 billion tons of CO2 compared to 40 % emissions reduction at little additional costs to consumers. 2/9
How will the EU coal phase-out by 2030 affect the price of #electricity? Consumers can expect a price increase of only 0.5 ct/kWh with a policy mix scenario - a figure that is dwarfed by the current increase in #powerprices driven by more costly #fossilgas. 3/9 Phasing out coal in the EU’s power system by 2030

1. I took this photo yesterday during a beautiful sunrise while driving early in the morning from my village to Rotterdam. You can see one of the wind turbines in the eye of the rising sun.

This starts a thread about wind turbines 🧵
🌎

2. The Netherlands has a reputation as a country of windmills to mill grain or pump water, and we still have some 1,100 of the classic types.

But the Dutch were not the first to harness the wind: Ancient Babylonians started some 4,000 years ago.

3. At the end of the 19th century, modern wind power was first developed in Denmark, where the first horizontal-axis wind turbines were created in 1891, and a 22.8-meter wind turbine began operation in 1897.

What’s driving the gas price surge? 1/

@PatAlvarezB chalks it up to these factors: Natural gas prices in Europe may remain elevated heading into the winter amid a tightening supply scenario and below-average storage levels, subdued LNG and pipeline imports.

#ONGT #Gas #LNG
2/ The run-up in CO2 prices are also a factor: As CO2 prices increase, electric generators are incentivized to operate cleaner burning #gas plants at the expense of coal, which helps to drive gas demand higher and consequently may provide structural support for higher gas prices.
3/ Will the run-up in #gas prices be transitory or enduring? What about #oil? Is the rise in #carbon prices structural?

I want to start a new thread story. Not sure how long it will be and I may use different prompts: #vss365 #vssmagic #vssnature etc etc ... I love reading about legends and folk lore, and in my fantasy writing I often create my own myths. So this will be just a fun exercise...
According to #lore &myths of old,griffins nestled on these cliffs long ago. They swooped down on the unsuspecting;carried them off never to be seen again.
Griffins were not elemental creatures,but air & earth did have dominion over them; their only enemy -fire.
#vss365 #vssmagic
"I helped your troupe avoid #shadow and #gore," said the dark wizard simply, implying that he saved us from the mythical griffins. I gaped at him. "And now for what you promised."

"No," I was careful not to get trapped in words, "I said: after you summon her."

@AEPTexas said they had 11 critical load customers before the storm in Feb, 171 now. 160 facilities didn't fill out a 2 page form pre-Feb. Wow.


This adds new detail to this from @byjayroot @jblackmanChron @Dexinvestigates #txlege houstonchronicle.com/politics/texas…
@TNMP had 2 gas facilities registered as critical infrastructure before the storm. Now has 177. This really is stunning. They're a small player but have a significant Permian footprint.

Today is #WorldMangrovesDay. 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 & special adaptations. They act like buffer & consume the winds & energy. So after passing the storms get dampen. You must have read in ‘Theory of Vibration’.
They are prop roots. In #mangrove #ecosystem they are adventitious support roots. They Grow down from lateral branches, in a way support trees, with doing other root functions. Additionally roots buffer against damage to coasts & enhance biodiversity & carbon sequestration.

As federal action on climate change is deadlocked, again, states have moved ahead.

Still, major obstruction efforts slow, stop, or even reverse progress.

The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources held a hearing on infrastructure this week:

energy.senate.gov/hearings/2021/…

Lots of discussion about water use and wildfire management, but also commentary on nuclear power and critical minerals that may be of interest to investors. Image
In his opening remarks, Chairman @Sen_JoeManchin talked about supporting our “zero emission #nuclear fleet” and rebuilding our domestic supply chains by responsibly mining #criticalminerals
Ranking member @SenJohnBarrasso also opened with a mention of the “necessity of advanced nuclear”

It is notable that the two most senior members, Democrat and Republican, are both strongly supportive of #nuclear power.

(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
