There is a lot of #china bashers out there particularly with regards #energy. The bottom line though is that #China is not only the biggest producers of #solarpanels, #inverters #windturbines and #batteries in the world but also the biggest market for all these products.
This year #china will install circa 100GW of #solarpanels. If you add the 50GW from last year the country has installed over the last 18 months more than the total installed base of the #Unitedstates.
#china will install over 50GW of #wind in 2022 which is more than 50% of all global wind turbines installed this year.

BREAKING: #BNNMorocco Reports.

Wind turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa intends to sell its Tangier blade manufacturing facility after it ceases operations in 2023. #Market #Africa #SouthAfrica #Morocco #Egypt #Wind #Turbine
The COVID-19 pandemic, the war in Ukraine, supply constraints, and rising steel and aluminum prices forced the company to rethink its Moroccan strategy.
Siemens Gamesa's Onshore CEO for South Europe, Africa, Latin America, and Brazil, Paulo Fernando Soares, explains via email that the decision was made "from a global perspective that accounted for changing market demands,

“Solar is the cheapest form of #EnergyGeneration on the planet, unsubsidized. Solar is the cheapest source of #energy in history. Nothing else is as cheap as #solar — today.”
“Solar is so cheap that the total costs are lower than just the #OperatingCosts of #coal, #nukes, #oil, or #gas generation… that’s today! Even if you get that gas #PowerPlant for free, the costs of running that power plant are higher than all the costs of #solar.”
“For purely economic reasons, #solar is already disrupting everything else.”

#Niedersachsen ist nicht nur das #Wind-Land Nummer 1, sondern auch das #Gas-Land Nummer 1. Deshalb ein schneller Blick, was im #Koalitionsvertrag von @SPDNDS und @gruenelvnds zu den Themen #Gas, #LNG und #Fracking steht. (1/10)
Bemerkenswert: Aus Nutzung und Förderung soll „schnellstmöglich“ ausgestiegen werden, wenn auch nur in Abstimmung mit der #Bundesregierung. Kommt damit endlich der #Gas-Ausstieg auf die politische Agenda? (2/x)
Auch wenn hier kein explizites Datum genannt wird: An anderer Stelle heißt es, dass #Niedersachsen seinen gesamten (!) Energiebedarf bis 2040 zu 100% aus #Erneuerbaren decken möchte. Der #Gas-Ausstieg muss also vorher vollzogen sein, die #Gas-Förderung vor 2040 enden. (3/x)

A Picture tells a 1,000 Stories: This one show how #China dominates the production of key #cleanenergy technologies such as #solar, #wind, #batteries as well as the key #commodities that go into them.
I am thankful for the #Chinese and their great entrepreneurs for ramping up production as they have helped bring the costs of these #technologies down substantially.
#China has understood early the huge growth opportunity with these technologies and thet have also understood the strategic importance of #cleanenergy and supported their companies along their growth paths. Meanwhile, back in the #US and #Europe….well the picture says everything

I have never been as positive about our #energy #future as I am these days. Not alone do we have the #technologies and the knowhow to #decarbonise but we have massive retooling taking place in #China and the #US around key future energy technologies
Such as #solar, #wind, #batteries, #digitalisation, nextgeneration #nuclear, as well as significant technology breakthroughs in #geothermal, #heatpumps #tidalenergy, #hydrogen
What we do need to change is the negativity around #climatechange. It was thus great to read this article from @greendig criticising the god father of #energyhistory Vaclav Smil

Dear @GretaThunberg

#nuclear is better than #coal not just when it comes to plant closures

#solar and #wind are great but only provide 2% of our primary power needs. We must get realistic and support #nuclear so that we can reduce coal use as well as fuel oil, gasoline, diesel
And finally nat gas.

Our only hope is to get realistic and get after eliminating the worst polluters first.

Fossil fuel use continues to rise globally and #nuclear is simply the only hope.
Good on you for keeping an open mind and helping to support rational decision making in Germany.

Look at the numbers and it’s clear as can be…

Derzeit lese ich vermehrt Kampagnen von u.a. der #Union und #FDP, die das Aus der Kernkraftwerke als "Grüne Ideologie" bezeichnen. Es lohnt ein kurzer Blick auf die Historie des Atomausstiegs und der daraus resultierenden Kosten für Steuerzahler*innen.
Ein🧵 (1/x)
Rot-Grün beschloss im Juni 2000 in einem "Energiekonsens" mit den Energieversorgungsunternehmen (EVU) die geordnete Beendigung der Kernenergie. Soll heißen: Die AKWs werden nach einer Übergangszeit stillgelegt. (2/x)
Die Übergangszeiten sind durch keine starren Daten begrenzt, sondern mittels Reststrommengen flexibler gestaltet. Die Betreiber dürfen also für die laufenden AKWs nur noch eine bestimmte Energiemenge produzieren und einspeisen. (3/x)

September was an interesting month to understand the challenges of Germany's so called "Energiewende".

At first, it may not look unusual. Germany was able to export 2,076 GWh of electricity for the month and covered peak loads most of the times.

1/n #Electricity
Isolating its wind & solar generation (RES) for the month of Sept however reveals future challenges.

GER had 9 days in Sept with little #wind. Not just Germany, all of Europe. On avg, GER used 2.7GW of its 62GW wind cap.

That is a capacity factor of 4.5%. Ouch!

2/n
While Sept turned GER into an importer for 2d (from CZE, SWE & DK) to cover consumption (FRA couldn't help; coal maxed out), RES also required it to export excesses during 15d.

Its Energiewende already turned GER into an imp/export "junky" as d-s are tough to match.

CN Religion

Hö? Wieso? Weil es manche #Menschen triggern kann. #Religion und #Glaube sind nicht nur etwas, mit dem man #Hoffnung und #Werte vermitteln kann, sondern ebenso #Wut, #Ohnmacht und #Hass.
Meinen Teil erzähle ich gerne in 2 ‚Akten‘.
Akt 1: Wieso du #Religion hasst.
Ich war in der #Grundschule so ziemlich das einzige #Kind dass nicht getauft war. Meine #Mutter lies mir die Entscheidung offen.
Einmal im Monat ging es zum #Gottesdienst mir der Schule.
Ich dachte ganz normal daran teilnehmen zu können. Aber weit
gefehlt - dem war nicht so.
Ich wurde in diesem Teil der schulischen #Bildung als Aussätziger behandelt. Ich musste vor der #Kirche warten. Ich musste um 8 Uhr an der #Schule sein, zur Kirche laufen in 2er Grüppchen und warten. Von 8 - 9:15 Uhr. Bei #Wind & #Wetter.

🚨 New paper 🚨

Green #hydrogen and derived #efuels are critical for #climate #mitigation, but when will they be available at scale?

In a new Nature Energy study, we look at a key bottleneck: the market ramp-up of #electrolysis capacity.

Summary 🧵⬇️

nature.com/articles/s4156…
2/ #GreenHydrogen, produced from renewable electricity via electrolysis, is vital for the #EnergyTransition. In the #EnergyCrisis hydrogen is also considered an option to limit Europe's fossil fuel imports.

However, scaling up supply is a huge challenge!
3/ There's a lot of momentum in electrolysis project announcements. This is also much needed because global capacity needs to grow a staggering 6,000-8,000-fold from 2021-2050 to meet #NetZero scenarios. Yet, most projects still lack an FID, making them uncertain. Image

"#FossilFuels cost about the same now as they did a century ago. #Renewables have been dropping in price at rates of about 10% a year and deployment has been shooting up at about 30% a year, and this has been continuing for several decades."

Statt von einem Weiterbetrieb des Atommeilers #Isar2 und der anderen #AKWs zu fabulieren, sollten wir über eine Aufteilung der deutschen Strompreiszone sprechen: Jahrelang haben @Markus_Soeder und die @CSU die Energiewende und die #Erneuerbaren blockiert. (1/5)
Stromleitungen wurden von der @CSU gestoppt, der #Wind-Ausbau mit #10H ausgebremst, #Effizienz ignoriert, viel zu lange von der #Atomkraft geträumt die Suche eines Endlagers in #Bayern trotzdem abgelehnt. Für @Markus_Soeder kommt der Strom einfach aus der Steckdose. (2/x)
Wir sollten konsequent das #Verursacherprinzip umsetzen: Wird die Strompreiszone geteilt, werden fehlende #Erneuerbare und eine etwaige Stromlücke für höhere Preise mit entsprechenden Nachfrageeffekten im Süden sorgen. Das ist die Quittung für die #Energiepolitik der @CSU. (3/x)

Here's my latest in @RealClearEnergy on the ongoing backlash against big renewables. Butler Cty, OH, banned #wind & #solar projects in 12 townships. The ban marks the 344th rejection of wind in the US over the past decade. @LinowesLisa

realclearenergy.org/articles/2022/…
@RealClearEnergy @LinowesLisa As I have reported many times, the raging backlash against the renewable industry doesn’t fit the convenient narrative that wind and solar are “green” and that they are “cheaper” than traditional forms of energy production. /2
These rejections are not being covered by The New York Times or National Public Radio, but they reflect the growing outrage in rural American towns and counties over the land grab that is being attempted by some of America’s biggest companies in the name of climate change. /3

The House State Affairs Committee is underway. @PUCTX Chair Peter Lake has made opening comment & now the questions have begun. Phil King is asking about a major market change called the Load Serving Entity Obligation which would add more costs. (cont.)
#energytwitter #txlege
King wants to know if #txlege will be able to weigh in before the LSEO is implemented. The design of the LSEO is being done by E3 to "independently" analyze the proposal even though they proposed it for a big generator (NRG) last year.
houstonchronicle.com/business/energ…
@PhilKingTX expresses concerns about potential conflicts of interest from E3. He's right to be concerned.

@toddahunter says higher bills are coming and reminds the PUC Chair that the P in PUC stands for Public. Wants transparency for the public. cc: @DaveLieber

At ERCOT Board meeting tmrw & at a Texas House Cmte Wed, #ERCOT’s Independent Market Monitor (IMM) will present. The IMM quantified the cost of recent @PUCTX policy changes in her ERCOT presentation & there are some shocking numbers. 1/🧵

renewableenergyworld.com/solar/the-stat…
Here’s the presentation she’ll make tomorrow. The kicker is in this slide: The “conservative operating posture” of the @PUCTX & @ERCOT_ISO have cost consumers a minimum of $670m over only five months. (The range is $670-$845m)

The news here is the RUC costs, which market participants & consumer advocates have been sounding the alarm about for months. In my @REWorld article I said it was hard to tell exactly what RUCs cost, but now we know: $460m ytd thru 5/31/22. That’s more than I would've guessed. 3/

⚡️NEW REPORT⚡️:
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 🧵

bit.ly/CleanElectrici…

#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
🔋#EnergyStorage
🏡#EnergyEfficiency
🌊Existing #Hydropower
🔌More grid connections between regions
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.
