What is renewable energy?

Something rare expensive, so we have to save, restrict, refrain or
something cheap in abundance, so we can built worldwide wealth and a limitless future on it.

The world develops like we see the world.
So it's better for our future to see the world like
the new paradigm infinitism.

When the #oil giants get scared of #climatechange !
On the heels of Shell, now BP has warned that carbon dioxide emission levels from burning fossil fuels are unsustainable unless the international community unilaterally introduces tougher binding regulations on atmospheric pollution. In another astonishing announcement, a second major Oil producer has called for a global carbon  pricing mechanism. BP follows last week’s speech from Ben Van Beurden, CEO of Shell, which called for policies to curb ...

Why protect your solar power system from lightning?

Lightning is a common cause of failures in photovoltaic (PV) systems. A damaging surge can occur from lightning that strikes a long distance from the system, or even between clouds. But most lightning damage is preventable. 

In this article, the writer explains that protecting your solar energy system from lighting -- protects an investment.

http://www.pvbuzz.com/lightning-protection-for-solar-panels-protects-your-investment/
Lightning can cause devastating damage to solar panels and protection needs to be considered during the design stages. Lightning strikes, whether direct or indirect, can result in both down time and expenses in identifying and replacing damaged parts. Direct strikes, while rare, would destroy ...

A Utility Business Model That Embraces Efficiency and Solar Without Sacrificing Revenue?

A few weeks ago the city council in Fort Collins, Colorado, unanimously voted to accelerate the city’s climate action goals to achieve an 80-percent reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2050. The municipally owned Fort Collins Utilities understood the community’s desire for such aggressive action, which will be critical to the success of the effort, and has taken steps to better understand the utility’s role helping the community meet its energy transformation goals. One of those steps was working with RMI. 

At first glance it may seem as though the utility's revenue is doomed to plummet—among other elements, the city's approach calls for a rapid scale-up of distributed renewables and building efficiency—but an exciting innovation suggests otherwise: the integrated utility services (IUS) model.

The IUS utility business model that RMI developed for Fort Collins Utilities: a) deploys energy efficiency and rooftop solar as default options for residential and small commercial customers, b) does so with on-bill financing and other mechanisms to ensure no increase in customers' monthly utility bills, and c) preserves utility revenue. This sounds like an unlikely, too-good-to-be-true combination, but our analysis shows that both municipally-owned utilities like Fort Collins Utilities and other member- or independently-owned utilities alike can achieve very real success.

Given the large changes the utility and its customers would have to make, Fort Collins Utilities approached us with a second set of questions that we think utilities of all stripes should consider:
• How can a utility help most of its customers participate in the energy transition (by investing in efficiency, distributed solar, or other opportunities)?

• How can a utility roll out these new services without disrupting or destroying its own revenue?

RMI, with the support of an e-Lab working group, the Colorado Clean Energy Cluster, and Fort Collins Utilities, set out to answer these questions through the design of a new utility business model. The result became the IUS business model.

This business model would help customers access a broader range of energy services—including efficiency improvements, distributed renewables, transport and heat system electrification, and demand response—in one comprehensive package, with monthly payments on the electricity bill. This integrated utility services model—the IUS model—could, if designed correctly, align a utility's interest in its financial health with the interests of customers who want to invest in efficiency and distributed solar, and make these investments appealing to a wider range of customers.

Key program features would include:
• A package of basic efficiency and distributed solar offerings that, when financed on a customer’s bill, do not increase monthly costs

• An integrated intake and service-delivery experience for customers

• A platform that allows for new services to be offered over time (and for innovative partners to participate in such offerings)

• An on-bill financing program that would leverage diverse sources of capital

Here’s how the program we developed could work. The utility would contact customers to notify them of the new program and the options available for their home energy goals. An experienced third-party provider would contact customers and walk them through a set of choices for a bundle of services customized to their home.

Contractors would then conduct audits and install measures in one fell swoop, keeping installation and procurement costs low. With high customer adoption and bundling offering a sort of “mass customization,” the utility could likely achieve economies of scale that would lower costs even further. Billing, quality control, monitoring and verification, and reporting would continue to be managed by the utility to ensure program success. Customer bills would reflect energy cost savings netted against service charges for the improvement measures. As the program delivered results, customers could consider upgrading for additional services such as new windows or a new refrigerator.

THE BOTTOM LINE
Our initial analysis shows customers could reduce their bills by roughly five percent when participating in the program’s basic, bill-neutral package. Since the customers' service charges, like power purchase agreements, need not escalate as fast as utility pricing (or at all), these savings could rise substantially over time, to as much as a 25-percent bill reduction by 2030.

Meanwhile, utility income could increase, as these services, many of which continue to experience technology-driven cost reductions, are likely to be more profitable than traditional sales of electricity. There is also room to sell new services (just as some utilities are now offering high-speed Internet).

THE WAY FORWARD
Utilities have an incredible opportunity in the IUS model and related approaches to leverage their direct access to energy customers and provide them with the very products that are traditionally viewed as a threat. While it will require establishing more nuanced billing and banking systems, among other capabilities, these challenges are not insurmountable. In fact, in many ways that is exactly what competitors such as SolarCity do well. Utilities have predominantly viewed their energy-services departments as money pits, administering cumbersome efficiency and rebate programs.

But perhaps it’s time to circle back and take a fresh look at the activities and services these departments know so well. After all, those services could be utilities’ biggest hope for the future.
Our analysis shows that both municipally-owned utilities like Fort Collins Utilities and other member- or independently-owned utilities alike can achieve very real success while embracing efficiency and solar.

More homes could be powered by the earth's natural underground heat with a new, nontoxic and potentially recyclable liquid that is expected to use half as much water as other fluids used to tap into otherwise unreachable geothermal hot spots. The fluid might be a boon to a new approach to geothermal power called enhanced geothermal systems. These systems pump fluids underground, a step that's called "reservoir stimulation," to enable power production where conventional geothermal doesn't work.

Solving the Storage Problem
 
A Harvard team showed that flow batteries can work with quinones (small organic carbon-based molecules found in crude oil and green plants) instead of metal electrocatalysts, making flow batteries far less expensive. (Flow batteries are useful to buffer power harvested from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar.)
Harvard technology could economically store energy for use when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine
