None of this impossibility is being considered in today’s reliability assessments.
discussing remote hopes and ignoring huge obstacles will lead to increased likelihoods of greater costs, worsening reliability and eventually unbearable blackouts.
Recognizing the difference between what theory suggests and practical knowledge demonstrates is critical.
In other words, you will need about 35 times the capacity of solar panels as the amount of firm power that you are committed to provide.
This is bureaucratese meaning “we’ll turn off your electricity at random times when we feel like it.”
The Report is an exercise by genius would-be central planners concocting enormously complex models that just happen to come to the results that the authors are hoping for, while at the same time they avoid ever directly addressing...
It is now up to someone else to put up the money so that the low status people can do the menial task of working out the details.
These are two ubiquitous Achilles heels: 1) What limitations does the second law of thermodynamics place on it, and 2) what are the other constraints that would limit its usefulness in a system?
What will the production and consumption of energy look like in the United States in 2050? There are two very different answers to that question.
After all, it doesn’t take a genius to realize that wind and solar produce nothing on a calm night.
If Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has calculated how much must be spent on energy storage to stabilise a renewable grid, she does not seem keen to share.
Does the California multi-agency Report provide any reason to believe that the California bureaucrats have a good idea as to how to get to a zero-emissions electrical grid? The answer is no...
By Mike O’Ceirin Energy Storage: An Estimate Using Actual Data Abstract Much has been written about using energy storage to stabilise renewable energy...
I am unconvinced that this report provides any value. The report was not proofed well because wording of the ten recommendations in each chapter do not match the description of the ten recommendations in the introductory...
At current prices of around $200/KWH the 560 GWH of storage will run around $112 billion, or around half of the annual budget of the state government of California.
