Michael Shellenberger: Energy and the Economics of Renewables
In this interview we discuss the impact of Schumpeter's concept of creative destruction in economic thinking - and specifically in energy. Most crucially we debate the issues surrounding conservation and the use of new oil and gas technologies in the United States and around the world. The central question is whether moving away from coal and into shale - rather than directly into renewables - is a worthy move from an economic as well as environmental point of view. We also discuss the economics of renewables and what economic policy can do to foster cleaner energy and more sustainable development.

Germany: The world's first major renewable energy economy
The planet Earth will be completely devastated by 2050 if natural resources will be exploited at the current rate. «According to the scientists, in 50 years people will have to move to another planet, because life on Earth will be impossible». This statement is from 2006. And in 2018 this prediction has been confirmed by the fact that the annual volume of renewable resources of the planet ended on August 1, 2018. Can we stop this huge conveyor? - It is difficult but possible. The key word in this mission is renewable resources. This documentary shows renewable energy sector in Germany. The country is well known as "The world's first major renewable energy economy", and in this film I learned something new about green energy. Please like, and comment below what do you think about the future of renewable energy. Would it save the Earth?

The 'duck curve' is solar energy's greatest challenge
Renewables require change in the energy supply chain. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Electricity is incredibly difficult to store, so grid operators have to generate it at the exact moment it is demanded. In order to do this, they create incredibly accurate models of the total electric loads, that is how much energy will be consumed on a given day. But as utilities started to produce more energy from renewable sources like solar, the models started to shift as well. California researchers discovered a peculiarity in their state’s electric load curves, that started to look more and more like a duck. And that duck shaped chart highlights the greatest challenge to solar energy growth in the US. Vox writer David Roberts has been covering the issue for a few years now. You can read some of his past explainers on the duck curve, and its solutions at the links below: https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2018/3/20/17128478/solar-duck-curve-nrel-researcher https://www.vox.com/2016/2/10/10960848/solar-energy-duck-curve https://www.vox.com/2016/4/8/11376196/california-grid-expansion https://www.vox.com/2016/2/12/10970858/flattening-duck-curve-renewable-energy And if you would like to read some of the source material used in the video above, you can check those out here: https://www.caiso.com/documents/flexibleresourceshelprenewables_fastfacts.pdf https://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy16osti/65023.pdf Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

The Crash Course - Chapter 19 - Energy Economics
The central point to this latest video is this: as we’ve shown in previous chapters of the Crash Course, our global economy depends on continual growth to function. And not just any kind of growth; but exponential growth. But in order to grow, it must receive an ever-increasing input supply of affordable energy and resources from the natural world. What I’m about to show you is a preponderance of data that indicates those inputs will just not be there in the volumes needed to supply the growth that the world economy is counting on. In short, on top of all the debt and other economic messes we’ve made for ourselves, constraints from the natural world will increasingly place limits on economic growth in a way we haven’t had to deal with over the past century. This is why I’m so confident in the claim that the next 20 years will be completely unlike the past 20. So understanding the dynamics at play here is key to forecasting what the future will be like. Since energy is the master resource, that’s where we’re going to start.

How to fuel the future | The Economist
America, under President Donald Trump, is securing its “energy independence” with oil and gas. But unlike fossil fuels, renewables will not increase global warming —and China is moving fast. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy Oil moves the world around and creates powerful countries. Oil is such a vital commodity that it provoked wars throughout the 20th century. The few countries that produce it, try to keep control of it to ensure its riches stay at home. Those who do not have it, strive to get it. In the 1930s Saudi Arabia was one of the poorest countries in the world but the discovery of oil transformed it and Saudi Arabia has amassed $515.6 billion in sovereign wealth funds. It has become the linchpin of a powerful cartel that sometimes rations oil to push up prices. The United States is now the biggest producer of oil and gas owing to its shale revolution. It has tapped abundant reserves through fracking - a technology that uses high-pressure water and sand to fracture rock deep below the ground to extract hydrocarbons. This shale revolution has helped the United States become less dependent on oil imported from Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Iraq, and other OPEC countries. More oil and gas on global markets has also benefited the world's energy consumers by pushing down costs. Oil still remains the primary fuel, supplying almost 1/3 of the world's energy but its heyday may soon be over, despite growing demand. By 2040 the world's global energy use is set to increase by 30 percent. That energy must be much cleaner if the world wants to prevent catastrophic global warming. In the past coal and gas were less expensive than renewable technology but their costs have come down dramatically. There is now a race among some nations to create more efficient renewable technologies to reduce pollution and be more energy self-sufficient. China is the world's largest consumer of coal and the second largest of oil but it also now leads the world in clean energy. one third of the world's new wind power and solar panels is installed in China, and it sells more electric cars than any other country. The quest for energy self-sufficiency is a big motivation for many countries. China is moving fast, and America under President Donald Trump, is securing its energy independence with oil and gas. But unlike oil and gas renewables will not increase global warming. The long term transition to clean energy will throw up new global challenges. It will create tensions in unstable parts of the Middle East as oil revenue starts to dry up. Another challenge is that wind and sun are intermittent. renewables may require vast shared electricity grids spanning boarders to make them more efficient. To stop global warming the world needs a huge collaboration over our shared energy future. If we fail, wars over scarce resources could be even worse in the 21st century than in the 20th.

Cost of Renewable Energy Spreadsheet (CREST)
The Cost of Renewable Energy Spreadsheet Tool (CREST) is an economic cash flow model designed to allow policymakers, regulators, and the renewable energy community to assess project economics, design cost-based incentives (e.g., feed-in tariffs), and evaluate the impact of various state and federal support structures. CREST is a suite of four analytic tools, for solar (photovoltaic and solar thermal), wind, geothermal, and anaerobic digestion technologies. The model is a product of a 2009-2010 partnership between the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Program (SETP), and the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissions (NARUC). The model was developed by Sustainable Energy Advantage (SEA) under the direction of NREL. https://financere.nrel.gov/finance/content/crest-cost-energy-models Regards Saqer Khalil +966-540591074 Jeddah , Saudi Arabia [email protected]

Energy hunger, energy guzzlers and energy providers (1/2) | DW Documentary
Our hunger for energy goes beyond all limits and will double in the next 20 years. But what available technologies could meet the growing thirst for electricity? And will we also have to cut power consumption? What can Europe learn from China? And could "decentralization" into so-called "microgrids" the future of energy? You can watch part 2 here: https://youtu.be/eHmp7_r1PG8 What is supposed to be the largest and most efficient solar power plant in the world is currently being built near the Moroccan desert city of Ouarzazate. The Noor solar power plant, which means "Light" in Arabic, is due to be completed by 2020, when it will comprise 4 units. In its final expansion stage, Noor will supply a total of 1.3 million households with electricity. The sun is the most powerful source of energy in our galaxy and could theoretically supply all of humanity with electricity with ease, but what technologies do we have to usher in this new era of electricity? Could wind power be a more promising alternative? Wind farms are being built at full speed around the world, but is wind energy really viable? Is the enormous investment in wind turbines at all worth it and can it meet our demand for electricity? China has shown how quickly you can push ahead with the switch from fossil to renewable energy sources. China's enormous economic growth in recent decades has made the Middle Kingdom the world's largest energy guzzler. But China is also the world’s largest energy producer. A veritable energy revolution is currently underway. Almost 20 percent of the ever-growing demand for energy is now met by renewable technologies, and a large proportion of the solar cells used worldwide already come from China. What can Europe learn from China? One key to avoiding an electricity crisis could be "decentralization,” so-called "microgrids." A quiet little town in the Swabian Allgäu region has shown it is possible to produce eight times as much electricity as it needs itself. -------------------------------------------------------------------- DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Colm McCarthy - The Economics of Renewable Energy
'IRELAND'S ENERGY FUTURE?' Suir Valley Environmental Group Conference, Raheen House, Clonmel, January 20th, 2016. THE ECONOMICS OF RENEWABLE ENERGY by Colm McCarthy COLM McCARTHY Colm McCarthy, one of Ireland's leading economists, asks hard questions about the cost of renewable energy and infrastructure in Ireland, how renewable energy affects conventional energy generation systems, and how renewable energy targets can be met more economically. A graduate in Economics of University College Dublin and of the University of Essex, Colm McCarthy has worked at the Economic and Social Research Institute, the Central Bank of Ireland, with the economic consulting firm DKM and at the Economics Department of University College Dublin. McCarthy was a member of the Independent Expert Panel tasked by the DCENR with overseeing the preparation of reports submitted by EirGrid for the Grid Link and Grid West projects. He has published over 40 technical articles on issues in applied economics in Irish and international journals, including the Economic Journal, the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, and the European Economic Review, and is also a regular columnist for the Farmers Journal and The Sunday Independent. IRELAND'S ENERGY FUTURE? Suir Valley Environmental Group Conference, Clonmel, January 20th, 2016. The Suir Valley Environmental Group presents an evening of talks on Wind Energy and Decarbonisation, Energy Economics, and Energy Demand and Efficiency with Dr Fred Udo, (Physicist and Engineer), Colm McCarthy, (Economist), and David Hughes, (Architect). The talks will be followed by a Q&A chaired by Dr Gerald Mills, (UCD School of Geography and President of the Geographical Society of Ireland). ‘Renewable Energy’ has become an accepted and unquestioned mantra: if it’s renewable it must be good regardless of whether or not it reduces CO2 emissions efficiently. If Ireland is to continue to commit to high investment and substantial, long term changes to our energy system, we must ask hard questions about our renewable energy policy.

Germany's energy transition and cities: Economic insights and good policy
Cities have the potential to be central to an energy transition, but will require the right conditions to thrive. Certain policies can allow cities to unlock and capitalize on economic opportunities associated with transforming energy production and use, while others can inhibit progress. In Germany, where a country-wide energy transition known as the “Energiewende” is well underway and has resulted in a 30% reduction of GHGs since 1990, national targets and legislation have provided an enabling framework for local action. Through localized policies, cities and regions are creating space for innovation and ambitious energy planning. Dr. Claudia Kemfert, energy economist and Head of Department of Energy, Transportation, and Environment at the German Institute of Economic Research, shares economic insight into smart policies for an energy transition based on knowledge, practice, and learnings from Germany’s “Energiewende”.

Electricity Market Design: Political Economy and the Clean Energy Transition
In a November talk hosted by the MIT Energy Initiative, William Hogan, the Raymond Plank Professor of Global Energy Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, discussed his view that the clean energy transition exacerbates the tension between mandates and markets. Efficient electricity market design improvements are in competition with both command and control policies as well as the pressures of crony capitalism. The mistakes will be expensive, the transition will be delayed, and the outcome will remain uncertain. A great deal has occurred since the Energy Policy Act of almost 25 years ago; but a great deal remains to be done. This talk was presented on November 9, 2016 as part of the IHS Markit Seminar Series. About the speaker: William W. Hogan is the Raymond Plank Professor of Global Energy Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School and Research Director of the Harvard Electricity Policy Group. He served on the faculty of Stanford University, where he founded the Energy Modeling Forum, and is a past president of the International Association for Energy Economics. Hogan's research focuses on the interaction of energy economics and public policy, with an emphasis on the restructuring of the electricity industry. He has worked to design the market structures and market rules by which regional transmission organizations coordinate bid-based markets.

The risk of banking on renewable energy | DW News
Germany, Europe's biggest economy with a huge industrial base, has long aimed to make the transition to green energy. In 2018, renewables such as wind, hydroelectric, solar and bio-mass power made up more than 40 percent of Germany's energy mix. However, conventional energy sources still play a big role, and the clock is ticking. Germany plans to phase out nuclear power by 2022 and coal by 2038. But there's a catch. Relying on renewables can pose a risk to energy security.

Breakthrough in renewable energy - VPRO documentary
It’s not in the papers but a silent revolution is moving across the world. Renewable energy is becoming cheaper than from fossil fuels. It means that progressively the choice for wind and solar energy is no longer an ethical one but an economic one. And this will speed up the transfer to renewable energy. In countries like Brazil, Australia, Chile and parts of the United States people consider renewable energy because of financial reasons. The price of solar and wind energy will continue to drop and in more countries renewable energy will occur. A surprising newcomer on the market is Morocco, where the government expects that in 2020 more than 40 percent of the energy could come from solar energy.

Why Australia’s booming renewable energy industry has started hitting hurdles | Four Corners
The world’s current plan to slow global warming is the Paris agreement – signed by more than 170 countries in 2016. Under that deal Australia pledged to reduce its emissions by 26 percent, of 2005 levels by 2030. Most of Australia’s carbon emissions come from four areas of our economy – transport, industry, agriculture, and electricity. Electricity makes up about 34 percent of our emissions… and they’re trending down. That’s because there’s been a decrease in gas and coal fired power… and a boom in renewables. But now renewable projects are starting to hit hurdles. Stephanie March investigates for Four Corners.

Building a Low Carbon Economy in Brazil: Perspectives on Renewable Energy Public Policies
Brazil Institute On April 29, 2011, the Brazil Institute hosted a panel of experts to discuss renewable energies and policies in Brazil. Barbara da Costa de Oliveira, Supervisor, Global Sustainability at the Fundação Getúlio Vargas, opened this discussion forum by presenting the latest Getúlio Vargas Businesses for Climate Program publication, entitled "Public Policy Proposals by the Business Sector for a Low Carbon Economy in Brazil." She underscored that although many would argue that Brazil's energy matrix already makes it a low carbon economy, this publication outlines a way for Brazil to remain on this track. Ms. Oliveira explained that this publication is part policy paper, part technical study, and part letter to the Brazilian government. The EPC reviews data and served as a forum for consolidating policy proposals. The objective, Oliveira said, was to strengthen the competitiveness of the Brazilian economy in a way that acknowledged the "worst externality": climate change. The EPC recognizes that the atmosphere is a scarce resource that needs to be valued. In light of the far reaching implications of atmospheric alteration, the climate change debate is one of strategic economic importance. Furthermore, given that many international actors and trade partners are increasingly conscious of sustainability, trade barriers could also be a potential problem, which is addressed in this publication.

Solar energy in Morocco | DW Documentary (Renewable energy documentary)
Solar energy in Morocco is transforming the renewable energy scene. One of the world’s biggest solar power plants is situated in Morocco. Jaouad Ait Rebah changes a lot of people’s lives in the High Atlas Mountains - by bringing light where there is darkness. The Moroccan entrepreneur installs solar panels in the area’s picturesque, but remote villages. For the high-altitude residents, the difference is like that of night and day. The beautiful scenery is mostly lost on those living there. They live in extreme poverty. Many young people have left due to the lack of jobs. Now, however, the solar panels are modernizing the villages. Jaouad Ait Rebah and his work symbolize the energy revolution that has been sweeping across Morocco in recent years. The country is leading the change to renewables in Africa, as is evident in Jaouad’s native Ouarzazate. The city is home to one of the biggest solar power plants in the world, comprising almost one million parabolic mirrors. King Mohammed VI. is investing $9 billion in the facility, which provides electricity to two million people. By 2040, Morocco aims to generate almost half of its power from renewable energy sources. Our team accompanied Jaouad Ait Rebah as he went about his challenging and laborious work, marveling at the scale of the enormous solar facilities, and asks to what degree King Mohammed VI.’s ambitious projects are actually trickling down to the little people. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.
