95 percent of Germans want more renewable energies 
Ninety-five percent of Germans say that increased use and expansion of renewable energy is important or very important, according to a representative survey by Kantar Emnid, commissioned by Renewable Energies Agency (AEE). It also found broad support (65 percent) for renewable energy installations in respondents’ direct neighbourhoods (5km radius), which increased further if they already had experience with such installations in their area.

Energy Democracy In 4 Powerful Steps

August 14th, 2017 by John Farrell

SNIPPET:


There’s no question that the energy system is undergoing change. One need look no further than the 1 million solar rooftops in the US or — for the wonky — the source of new power capacity in the US over the past 15 years. In 2003, just 20% of new electric capacity came from renewable power plants. In the last eight years, it’s been at or over 60% almost every year. In the first three quarters of 2016, 16% of our new power capacity came from distributed solar alone (such as home rooftop solar arrays).


But few people realize that the change from fossil fuels to renewable sources is just a harbinger for a phase of massive disruption in energy markets. The disruption will remake how the energy system serves its users and offer unprecedented choices for customers. It may go further than choice.  As the energy system shifts away from the outdated utility monopoly model, the four Ds of energy democracy — distributed power, decentralization, democracy from ownership, and disruptive technology — have the potential to put those users in charge and allow them to reap the economic benefits.

Hurricanes Clear The Way For Tesla To Power Puerto Rico & The Caribbean

October 2nd, 2017 by Steve Hanley

Natural disasters create destruction and pain, but also open doors to opportunity. The tsunami that destroyed the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan changed that country’s mind about relying on nuclear energy to create electricity. The devastation visited upon Puerto Rico and several other islands in the Caribbean this year has left their electrical grids in ruins. While that has created  hardships for the residents, it has opened the door to discussing whether renewable energy companies like Tesla can and should be part of the rebuilding process.

The Political Storm About To Hit US

October 6th, 2017 by George Harvey

SNIPPET:

Looking out my window here in Vermont, I can see the storm clouds are gathering, and they are not pretty. There are two storms that I see, but they are are not weather. I hope they will not hit here too badly. I expect one will hit Washington D.C. pretty hard. And with it, I expect the Republican Party will be hurting.

The first is economic, and it relates to the energy industries. It is already well underway.

Full well written and logically sound article:

I'm afraid this storm will get much worse before it gets better. The Republican Congress has no intention to impeach a man who still has sizable support from their base. Why would they? He's removing business, social and environmental rules that suit them just fine. Meanwhile, extremist judges keep getting appointed. North Korea and Iran could turn into a real nightmare. Republicans don't have the balls to step back from their deal with the Orange Devil. Democrats continue to be corporate-owned, nice and spineless.
It's going to get much worse before it gets better. Apparently this is what stupid and lazy American voters need.

If the tax breaks for the rich fall apart the GOP will find itself unfunded. The donners have been very out spoken about that fact. I was just looking for a story I saw on that the other day. I think it was on TYT but I didn't see it on their you tube page. Anyway the video I saw had quotes from GOP donners which where very much along the lines of quid quo pro statements about wanting results. They are getting very in your face about the fact that they bought the government and I wonder how long the courts can turn a blind eye to it.
My advice is get to a point where you are as self reliant as possible. If things get ugly on a global scale the avg person on the streets will feel the pain. I think the great depression might look good compared to what is ahead of us. My grandfather always said the depression wasn't bad here on the farm they grew all their own food and only needed a few stables like flower and sugar which they could bater for so they got by ok. But alot of other people in town who couldn't raise their own food where not so lucky. Looking forward I think about that lesson alot and think how can I limit my dependency on purchased goods.

Yes, it is going to get uglier and uglier. The polluters go away or humanity perishes.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr:
Quote
In the next decade there will be an epic battle for survival for humanity against the forces of ignorance and greed. It’s going to be Armageddon, represented by the oil industry on one side, versus the renewable industry on the other. And people are going to have to choose sides – including politically.

They will have to choose sides because oil and coal, they will not be able to survive – they are not going to be able to burn their proven reserves. If they do, then we are all dead. And they are quite willing to burn it.

We’re all going to be part of that battle. We are going to watch governments being buffeted by the whims of money and greed on one side, and idealism and hope on the other.

Alternative Energy: Love the Environment, Save More

The buzzword for the last 10 years is "alternative energy." A lot of environmentalists, economists, and home owners are labeling it as the last-ditch effort to protect Mother Earth, as well as boost a country’s economy.

Seriously, what’s with renewable energy sources that make them very popular and controversial all at the same time?
The Numerous Advantages

There are indeed so many reasons to love alternative energy. Topping the list is the fact that it is highly economical, and, despite its expensive installation cost, practical.

The word “alternative” is just another term for “renewable.” This means that the source of your energy can be replenished for all eternity. For example, the energy from the sun will never run out unless it becomes a black hole. The wind will always be present as long as there will be cold and hot air. The inner cores the earth are constantly boiling, making them good sources for geothermal energy. The kinetic energy they produce can then be converted into electrical power.

At an economic standpoint, you will never run out of sources for your electricity. This is in contrast with fossil fuels and coals that are now constantly being depleted that they will soon become very rare commodities. This will then further increase their price in the market, and consumers have to pay more for their usage.

Moreover, since home owners and businesses no longer have to completely depend on conventional sources for electricity, they can now reduce their utility bills to as much as 90 percent every year.

Second, there are already a lot of countries that are adapting alternative forms of energy for sustainability, and they are inviting their citizens to patronize them by offering tax breaks and tax credits. That spells more savings for families and businesspersons. The government is also able to save since they don’t have to spend a lot of money on importation.

For the past few years, there is the emergence of green jobs. These are positions that have been created due to the need of expertise and skills in running and managing these forms of energy. In the process, clean energy is able to generate jobs for plenty of individuals. The wind industry alone already employs 2,000 people in the United States. These renewable types of energy also opened plenty of doors for those who want to go into business. They can manufacture parts in producing wind turbines, hybrid cars, or solar panels. They may also be tapped to sell renewable energy kits to residences and small businesses.

A lot of communities are now able to sustain themselves economically. For instance, they can develop their own wind farm and sell electrical power to households in the area.

These energy sources are also considered to be very environment friendly. This is because they don’t give off carbon emissions that would only further damage the earth’s atmosphere and promote global warming. They don’t pollute the rivers or seas, destroy the forests, or cause health hazards to people.

Types of Energy Sources

The good thing about alternative energy is that there are so many of them that you can choose from—and there will be more in the coming years as technologies and science continue to improve. You can opt for the most ideal one based on a number of factors or learn to combine them to generate full electricity for your property.

One of the most popular is the solar energy. As its name implies, the power actually comes from the sun. To collect the energy, they make use of photovoltaic cells with silicon, boron, and other materials. These cells are then grouped together into frames or solar panels. They are the ones that absorb a certain amount of power from the sun that allows electrons in the cells to move freely and create current.

The panels are sometimes attached to a battery, which is then used as an energy saving device. Whenever there is not enough sunlight, the stored power can be used to generate electricity.

Another alternative energy will be wind power, which can be converted into electricity by means of an alternative energy source called turbine. Wind is simply defined as air movement. The cold air goes down just as the hot air rises. Because wind has its own mass and motion, it develops kinetic energy, which can then turn the blades found in these turbines. The blades are then controlled by the rotor. You will also find an enclosure composed of gear box, which speeds up the rotation and help produce more wind energy, and the generator, which converts wind power to electricity.

Then you have the alternative energy called hydroelectric power. More than 1 billion people all over the world are taking advantage of water energy for electricity. The way they function is very similar to wind power. The only difference is that the source of the kinetic energy will be the strong flow of water.

Though hydroelectric power plants are stable since they have been around for several years, they can also be pretty unpredictable. This is because they are highly dependent on the bodies of water of the earth as well as the rain that falls to the ground. If the weather is going to be too hot, the amount of water in these plants will drop, making it harder for them to generate enough kinetic power that can be converted into electricity.

A unique form of alternative energy will be biomass. The energy is derived from plants, even while they are still alive, to materials that are derived from them such as dead wood, food crops, and alcohol fuels. Though both fossil fuels and biomass give off carbon dioxide, new plants are able to absorb the element from the dead living things; hence, they can help lessen global warming. There are many ways on how to utilize biomass energy.

Then you have geothermal energy. This alternative energy is derived from the inner core of the earth, which is usually hot, and the heat that comes from the sun and touches the land’s surface. There are many uses of geothermal power. One of these is the production of electricity. But its efficiency is quite low, just less than 25 percent, and there could be a significant wasted exhaust heat. Hence, most plants would also use geothermal energy for heating buildings and greenhouses

China committed to making world green again 

By Wee Kean Fong | China Daily | Updated: 2017-10-25 07:35

SHI YU/CHINA DAILY

China's pursuit of modernization is aimed at establishing total harmony between human beings and nature, said General Secretary Xi Jinping in his holistic report at the opening of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China on Oct 18.

Adding that more efforts are needed to boost green growth, reduce pollution, protect the ecosystem and reform the ecological supervision system, Xi said China's ecosystem will see fundamental improvements between 2020 and 2035. That goal is in line with the country's pledge to cut carbon emissions per unit of GDP by 60-65 percent from the 2005 level by 2030. It also honors the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement and manifests China's inclination to build an ecological civilization.

Over the past five years China has been scrupulously developing an eco-friendly economic growth model, by adapting a green, low-carbon approach, and its efforts seem to be paying off.

During the 12th Five-Year Plan period (2011-15), the country reduced its carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP by 20 percent, which is roughly 2.34 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide, according to World Resources Institute.

China's industrial sector, which accounts for 70 percent of its total carbon emissions, is expected to see major improvements as progress has been made in nourishing the service sector and reducing the industry's dependence on energy, especially fossil fuels. For example, the service sector accounted for 51.6 percent of China's GDP in 2016, about 11.8 percentage points higher than the industrial sector.

Consumption of fossil fuels, particularly coal, has shrunk accordingly as the country taps into renewable resources. By 2015, China had an installed non-fossil fuel energy generation capacity of 1,525 gigawatts, almost three times more than in 2005. By the end of last year, it had an installed capacity of 77 gigawatts of photovoltaic power; the figure for 2011 was just 2 gigawatts. And coal accounted for 63.7 percent of total energy consumption in 2015, 8.7 percentage points lower than in 2005.

Since 2011 at least 87 low-carbon pilot cities across the country have been working on green development. Most of them aspire to reach their peak carbon emissions before 2030; cities including Beijing and Guangzhou in South China's Guangdong province even intend to achieve that goal by 2020.

China also aims to become the world's largest market for carbon emission permits, which refers to the buying and selling of carbon permits and credits to emit carbon dioxide. The seven pilot cities traded permits for 120 million tons of carbon dioxide worth 3.2 billion yuan ($492 million) by last September, and a nationwide carbon trading market is underway.

The Paris Climate Agreement is aimed at keeping the average global rise in temperature below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, and preferably below 1.5 C. That said, global greenhouse gas emission is expected to peak by 2020, and China, one of the world's largest greenhouse gas emitters, is likely to make a big difference to it with its emission-reduction endeavors at home and abroad.

The 20 billion yuan South-South Cooperation Fund on Climate Change marks a historic move for Beijing, which has also promised to help developing countries build low carbon demonstration areas, provide personnel training and donate energy-saving renewable energy facilities. And the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, which shares the low-carbon ambition, will help the country to keep contributing to global green growth now that the United States has withdrawn from the Paris agreement.

Two Steps Forward

RMI @ 35: A conversation with Amory Lovins

Joel Makower

Monday, October 23, 2017 - 2:11am

SNIPPET 1:

Amory Lovins is co-founder and chief scientist of the Rocky Mountain Institute, arguably the world’s most influential energy think tank that this year is celebrating its 35th anniversary. Over those 3.5 decades, RMI has provided the vision and intellectual firepower for what now is commonplace: ultra-efficient vehicles; healthy and efficient buildings; utility business models that decouple energy sales from profitability; and other things. And, above all, illuminating a path toward cheap, ubiquitous and nonpolluting energy, growing economies and creating opportunities across the globe.

Much of this began well before RMI was created, in 1982. In the wake of the 1970s energy crisis, Lovins wrote a landmark article for Foreign Affairs, Energy Strategy: The Road Not Taken? in 1976. It described the two energy choices: the hard path, continuing to rely on dirty centralized energy generation; and the soft path, combining energy efficiency with a shift to renewable supply. The article became the journal’s most reprinted article and led President Jimmy Carter to invite Lovins to the Oval Office to have a discussion that helped form the president’s energy policy.

Over the years, RMI, which began in Lovins’ home in Snowmass, Colorado, now operates out of a net-zero-energy building  in nearby Basalt, along with offices in Boulder, New York City, Washington, D.C., and Beijing.

On the occasion of RMI’s 35th, I spoke to Lovins about his unwavering vision and the challenges and opportunities he sees going forward. The conversation has been edited for clarity and length.

SNIPPET 2:

(Lovins):We found in "Brittle Power" that a handful of people could turn off two-thirds of the oil and gas supplies to the eastern states in one evening without leaving Louisiana. But we also found the grid was more vulnerable than that, and it still is. 


Makower: So now that some of those chickens are coming home to roost — in Puerto Rico, in wildfires of northern California, in Texas and Florida and many other places around the world — are you seeing this as a teachable moment?

Lovins: Very much so — if those making the decisions care to listen. I've had, of course, many unsuccessful attempts to raise the energy security and resilience issues over the last 36 years. And other than the Department of Defense, most audiences have not been very receptive, because it contradicts their view of what they want to build.

To give an example of why this matters in the, say, Puerto Rican and Caribbean context, we've had a quite extensive effort with Carbon War Room, now part of RMI, and Richard Branson, to switch from diesel to distributed renewables on the islands.

I wrote an essay for the theater commanders in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2010. The title is Efficiency in Micropower for Reliable and Resilient Electricity Service: An Intriguing Case-Study from Cuba. I've not been to Cuba, but I had good information from people who know it well about how in 2005, Cuba had 224 serious blackout days. In 2006, it had three. In 2007, it had zero. And in 2008, two hurricanes in two weeks shredded their eastern grid, but they still sustained vital services, just as they did in recent weeks when the same things happened again. There was immense destruction, but things like hospitals kept working.

What did they do to create this extraordinary increase in resilience? Well, they started with efficiency, with a shipload full of Chinese export, credit-financed, very efficient appliances, comparable to good Energy Star models — things like lights, fans, refrigerators, rice cookers, pressure cookers and pumps. Those were mandatorily deployed all over the country. They switched to a steeply inverted tariff. They had a major public education campaign about Revolución Energética.

Most importantly, they switched the architecture of the grid from extremely centralized, based on 11 geriatric, Soviet heavy-oil plants, to much more distributed. They shut roughly half those plants and connected as netted islandable microgrids. That means that each locality normally interchanges electricity freely through the big grid with other areas, but if the big grid fails, then each locality isolates fractally, meets critical loads as best it can with local resources, and will then later detect, rethink and reconnect if the grid comes back.

In other words, it's exactly what the Pentagon doctrine has now said we should do for all our military bases so that their stuff works. And the misfortune Cuba had when they were doing this in 2005, 2006 and 2007, is that they couldn't get into the long waiting list for wind and solar, which at the time was still quite expensive because everybody else was ahead of them in the queue.

So they bought a bunch of mainly Caterpillar diesel generators. They weren't worried about the oil because Hugo Chavez would give them Venezuelan oil in exchange for doctors. That arrangement, of course, is now fraying with events in Venezuela, and they are now gradually switching to wind and solar, which is where they wanted to be in the first place.

But the combination of efficiency, some demand response and especially the resilient grid architecture produced the kind of result that we could and should have had in the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

100% Global Renewable Electricity No Longer Flight Of Fancy, More Cost-Effective Than Current System

November 9th, 2017 by Joshua S Hill

SNIPPET:

Making a global transition to a 100% renewable electricity grid has long been a dream of many, but new research published this week by the Lappeenranta University of Technology has proven it is no longer just a dream but a viable reality — a reality that is more cost-effective than the current fossil fuel-reliant system.

Presented on Wednesday during the Global Renewable Energy Solutions Showcase event (GRESS) on the sidelines of the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP23 in Bonn, Germany, the new study — Global Energy System based on 100% Renewable Energy – Power Sector — was conducted by the Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and the Energy Watch Group (EWG).
