Truly amazing global #smartenergysystems news!

Power 2 X upscaled big time before expected time.

- 1 GW electrolysis connected to #offshorewind from 2026

- 600.000 tons of green ammonia

- #districtheating for about 9.000 households in @EsbjergKommune and @vardekommune

- Europe's biggest green ammonia plant. Gigantic European upscaling potential.

- saves 1.5 mio tons of CO2 (most likely to be accounted in the Dutch carbon books)

- game changer in size and first mover in that scale, within the five biggest globally

- flexible ~50 percent operation time ensures completely green electricity

- can completely replace fossil fuel (natural gas) based fertilizer in Danish agriculture

- the upscaling means fast track for other power2X products: methanol, DME, plastics

- global ammonia production emissions account for 1.8% globally

- this 1 billion € investment is the first of several thousands of such plants

- on top of this comes the billions of investments needed in #windpower

- giant amount of new jobs


- several major players from @DanskIndustri and @spisekammeret involved ensures commitment to green transition

- secure regional green jobs could enable a decision to exit fossil fuel in the north sea earlier than 2050 in Esbjerg

Wind power cannot be blamed for electricity outages in Texas. Bad legislation, ownership models and worn out old electricity distribution grids can. Trust me - I come from a country with 50% wind power combined with well run grids and much colder weather (Denmark).
Certainly the extreme cold right now is very unusual and also makes it ok with an outage for a few hours. But days is more a systematic failure in my opinion. Also note that this phenomenon is connected to climate change!
Technically better more efficient buildings would have helped here in such a winter, but also with high cooling demands in the summer.

It's not really new that it gets cold in Texas. Last time was 2011 with 3 million effected for days. Now it's worse with 4 mill.
