Elles ont toutes échoué. Germany Converts Coal Mine into Giant Battery to Store Renewable Energy for off-Hours - EnviroNews. (EnviroNews World News) — North Rhein Westphalia, Germany — The Prosper-Haniel hard coal mine, slated to be shut down in 2018 when government subsidies run out, is being repurposed to become a giant battery for excess power created by renewable energy sources.

Germany Converts Coal Mine into Giant Battery to Store Renewable Energy for off-Hours - EnviroNews

Located in North Rhein Westphalia, the coal mine’s conversion will allow Germany to store 200 MW of electricity for use during times when solar and wind are unavailable or unable to meet energy needs. The storage is formed by a reservoir of water above the mine. The water can be released into the system when it is needed. As gravity pulls the water into the coal mine below, the water turns a turbine creating electricity. The water is then pumped back to the reservoir.

But Davida Herzl has a solution: Her company, Aclima, builds sensor networks that monitor environmental impacts at a hyperlocal scale. Clients can deploy sensors on city streets, inside buildings, even on vehicles, to compile data on pollutants, carbon footprint, and more. Think of it as a Fitbit for a planet trying to take more steps toward carbon reduction. A coal museum in Kentucky is switching to solar power.

Now, he’s returning to the small screen — or, at least, the streaming device — with Bill Nye Saves the World, a Netflix series set to debut this spring. “Each episode will tackle a topic from a scientific point of view,” Nye said in a statement, “dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders, or titans of industry.” Costa Rica got 98 percent of its electricity from renewables in 2016. That’s according to a new study in Science Advances, the latest installment in a debate that has refused to die.

Costa Rica got 98 percent of its electricity from renewables in 2016.

The controversy started in 2013 with a report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change suggesting that global warming had stalled. Researchers scrambled to explain what looked like a “warming hiatus,” while skeptics seized on those weird numbers to attack climate science. The confusion should have been cleared up in 2015, when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) found that a shift from ship-based measurements to ocean buoys could explain the low values. There was no “hiatus” at all. Republican Rep. This latest study “shows that NOAA got it right,” says Zeke Hausfather, a data scientist at UC Berkeley. Researchers had long measured ocean temperatures from the warm bellies of ships, Hausfather says. This latest study should put an end to the debate, Hausfather says.

Renewables poised to surge after Paris Agreement. Historically, the transition from one energy system to another, as from wood to coal or coal to oil, has proven an enormously complicated process, requiring decades to complete.

Renewables poised to surge after Paris Agreement

In similar fashion, it will undoubtedly be many years before renewable forms of energy — wind, solar, tidal, geothermal, and others still in development — replace fossil fuels as the world’s leading energy providers. Nonetheless, 2015 can be viewed as the year in which the epochal transition from one set of fuels to another took off, with renewables making such significant strides that, for the first time in centuries, the beginning of the end of the fossil fuel era has come into sight.

This shift will take place no matter how well or poorly the deal just achieved at the U.N. climate summit in Paris is carried out. Fossil fuels will not, of course, disappear during this period.

This story was originally published by Mother Jones and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. The desert in Southern California could be in for a climate-friendly makeover, after the Obama administration released its plans to develop more renewable energy projects on federally owned land.

On Tuesday the Interior Department released the final version of a plan that would open up about half a million non-contiguous acres — half the size of Rhode Island — for projects such as wind and solar farms in the Mojave Desert and surrounding areas. It would also more than double the amount of land dedicated to protecting delicate desert ecosystems that are home to vulnerable species, including the desert tortoise. The Mojave Desert, which stretches across most of Southern California, is a potential gold mine for clean energy. Good news: Wind energy is the cheapest energy source in Germany and the U.K. Thanks to the plummeting price of solar and wind energy, fossil fuels might be going the way of the dinosaurs. Affordable renewables could be a costly tipping point for dirtier energy sources — and we may have just reached it.

According to analysis by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF), wind power is now the cheapest electricity source in Germany and the United Kingdom, even without government subsidies. This milestone has never before been reached among the G7 (the advanced economies known as the Group of 7).

Don’t hold your breath, but future historians may look back on 2015 as the year that the renewable energy ascendancy began, the moment when the world started to move decisively away from its reliance on fossil fuels. Those fuels — oil, natural gas, and coal — will, of course, continue to dominate the energy landscape for years to come, adding billions of tons of heat-trapping carbon to the atmosphere. For the first time, however, it appears that a shift to renewable energy sources is gaining momentum. If sustained, it will have momentous implications for the world economy — as profound as the shift from wood to coal or coal to oil in previous centuries.

Global economic growth has, of course, long been powered by an increasing supply of fossil fuels, especially petroleum. Raccordements éolien et solaire : +1.000 MW chacun en 2014. Boycotting the Koch brothers? Better get a new brand of toilet paper. There are now twice as many solar jobs as coal jobs. Back in 2006, SolarCity was a small Bay Area solar energy startup with a handful of employees. Before long, according to CEO Lyndon Rive, the company was doubling in size every year to keep up with voracious demand for rooftop solar systems. Today, the company has over 9,000 employees spread across 65 offices nationwide; they’re are busy every day designing, selling, and installing solar systems. Similar stories are playing out at solar companies across the country.

The U.S. solar boom is taking off at breathtaking speed – even though solar is still a tiny slice of the American energy pie, it has by far the fastest growth of any energy source, and it’s adding jobs apace. 2014 Was a Record Year for Clean Energy Investments - Solar Energy. Clean energy investment rose for the first time in three years in 2014, totaling $310 billion and nearly surpassing the all-time high set in 2011 of $318 billion. A report compiled by Bloomberg New Energy Finance found that investment in wind, solar, biofuels and other low-carbon energy technologies overcame the headwinds of dropping oil prices and regulatory indecision to grow 16 percent over the course of the year.

“Healthy investment in clean energy may surprise some commentators, who have been predicting trouble for renewables as a result of the oil price collapse,” said Michael Liebreich, chairman of the advisory board of the London-based researcher, in a statement. “Our answer is that 2014 was too early to see any noticeable effect on investment. Scotland may achieve energy independence before political independence. Th’ Gaelic gales o’ Britain’s blashie northern land dinnae just carry Celtic tunes o’er th’ highland anymair. Noo, they’re reducin’ the need fur fossil ‘n’ nuke power as weel, thanks tae win’ turbines a’ ower Scootlund producin’ loads o’ lecky. In case you didn’t catch that, ThinkProgress published an article yesterday whose title sums up the story: “Scotland Produced Enough Wind Energy To Power Every Home In October.”

This news is super noteworthy and good, especially because Scotland’s flurry of wind helps keep watts flowing while four big U.K. nuclear power plants are offline, preventing a huge ramp up of coal and gas burning to replace the nuke power. Why clean energy might be cheaper than you think. Wind and solar power often get a bad rap for being more expensive than energy produced from fossil fuels. But what happens when you factor in, say, the health costs of people breathing smoggy air? Or the financial impact of climate change’s effect on ecosystems and precious resources like water? Those are some of the questions the European Commission sought to answer. A new report written for the EC includes those environmental costs and more in calculations of the total costs of producing electricity from various renewable and nonrenewable sources. The result?
