With Hawaii’s decarbonization deadline approaching, the utility is coming up with innovative ideas to address the evening peak.
Data shows that in 2021, Nebraska became the 20th American state to commit to 100% clean electricity by 2050 or earlier.
Cutting US emissions in half by 2030 – as it has promised to do – appears farfetched, at least politically. Here’s why.
The expected growth of solar capacity needs long-term solutions. Right now, grid operators have to resort to curtailment as the last resort.
The energy payback time for solar PV can be less than a year, meaning it will produce 20 times the energy needed to produce it over a 20 year lifespan.
Much needs to be done by California utilities and regulators to absorb eight million EVs without crashing the state’s fragile grid.
Another near disaster in mid-April was the result of a lot of thermal generation – coal, gas and nuclear – being offline for maintenance, not renewables performing poorly.
Princeton study says the US can reach net-zero emissions by 2050 or sooner and, if properly managed, it won’t break the bank.
Preliminary data shows culprits from last month’s load shedding were not variable renewables, but the sudden loss of a big fossil fuel generator, and human error.
California’s rotating outages blamed on the state’s failure to integrate the demand and supply sides of the market.
