2022-06-14 Calif Reached 100% Renewable Electricity

Originally an article. They made 3 points. They said, <<California must still rely on fossil fuels to meet its energy demands.>> The peak energy demands can be reduced by using a ‘smart grid’ where the grid has some control over the heavier demands. One example is residential HVAC and hot water. These can be

Australian and other renewables projects cataloged by global mapping tool from Global Energy Monitor.

2022-06-01 Solar V. Wind In Tropical Africa

There are 2 problems with solar in the tropic zone. One is that there are a lot of very green trees that block the sunlight year round, and would have to be cut down to make room for the solar panels. Solar panels could be located in areas where there are no trees. But there

2022-05-27 Wind Turbine End-of-life Waste

Comparison of wind turbine waste. There really is no comparison – coal power plants generate hundreds of times more fly ash waste than wind turbines, and fly ash is toxic! Compared to coal, wind turbine waste is insignificant! Wind turbine blade waste generates 0.163 kg per MWh over a 20 year period. A coal power

NREL and GE develop the system.

2022-05-02 Most Of California Generation Is Renewables

I don’t know what happened, but used to be the California independent system operator website. You could go there and see how many megawatts total and of renewables were being generated in real time. Then I started getting error messages like there was a problem! I checked a few times a month and renewables

2022-05-01 Delta, UT

This is one that really makes my day. This “”Advanced Clean Energy Storage Project in Delta, Utah…”” is important for us in Southern California. Right now there is a coal power plant in Delta, UT and it provides electricity to Nevada and So. California. Soon they will shut it down and the Intermountain DC Intertie

2022-04-30 Texas Goes Big With Renewables

What’s amazing about Texas is that such a large amount of renewables, especially wind, has been brought online in the last decade. There’s over 30 GW of wind power alone. That’s like a dozen full size power plants. Also it’s amazing how much water is used by conventional thermal power plants. quote: << Reloj del

Wind Turbines Can Stabilize The Grid “Base”

It’s about time they *prove* that those cynics who claim that “the grid will never be able to run without fossil fuel plants” are just telling pants-on-fire lies! Demonstration of “virtual synchronous generator”.
