There is mounting evidence than West-facing solar panels produce more electricity during peak demand, and thus solve solar’s main problem.
A reflection on climate change and the daunting but exciting task at hand in energy, transportation, industry, food production and so on.
A lot has been said about the booming global capacities of solar and wind in the past few years. But wind works at a maximum 35% of the time for onshore and perhaps 45% for offshore wind. Solar PV is even lower, with 20 to 30% capacity factor. So, backup solutions are being sought. 2017… Continue reading How energy storage made headlines in 2017
For years, grid parity – the time when solar and wind would be cost-competitive with fossil fuels and nuclear – was the holy grail of renewables energy, a target to reach in a distant future. But the future is now.
Renewables currently generate very little of Puerto Rico’s electricity but hopefully this could change after Hurricane Maria.
Years ago when Google Earth was launched, we were all amazed at the levels of details provided. It was just very impressive. Now Google does it again with a most interesting feature: Google Project Sunroof.
That’s it ! Renewable energy sources and electric vehicles are progressing so fast around the world that according to a new study coal and oil use could peak worldwide in as little as three years.
I came across several articles on my home country lately and thought it was the occasion to keep everyone updated on how the French energy transition is going on.
While the United States are wondering what will happen next on climate change mitigation in their country, both India and China have recently unvealed very ambitious targets to fight local air pollution and global climate change.
Every year in late November, it is the same thing: the very respected International Energy Agency publishes its World Energy Outlook. This year’s edition is interesting in more than one aspect.
For long, China was seen as a climate villain, fuelling its amazing economic growth by burning more and more coal. But times are changing, and the People’s Republic is emerging as a climate leader.
I was tired of reporting how the situation is bad in Australia because of the current politicians running the country. So for today’s post here are some good news from Down Under as it is becoming a global solar leader.
