Two case studies of renewable intermittency-Timera

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

Europe is leading a global push to decarbonise power markets with renewable energy sources. Decarbonisation looks to be a tough but achievable challenge, with wind & solar capacity set to do the heavy lifting.

More than 350GW of new wind and solar is projected to come online across Western Europe over the next 10 years. At the same time, large volumes of dispatchable nuclear, coal & lignite capacity are due to close, at least 40GW by 2023 and 80GW by 2030.

We set out the challenges of such a rapidly changing European capacity mix in a recent article. This highlighted what in our view is a substantial shortfall in flexible capacity investment in order to support growing wind & solar output volumes.

In today’s article we use two case studies to illustrate the flexibility required to support renewable output swings in 2020 compared to 2030. We…

    I would not take a lot of notice of this blog.
    This bloke wrote something about erroneous about our bushfires. I pointed out his error and linked a very good Radio National program where they had three experts talking about how more hazard reduction would not not have made much difference.

    I was banned for this temerity.

        increased hazard reduction would have made NO difference. the bushfires crossed rivers the best hazard reduction you can have. It traveled up cliffs never seen before.

        It does seem climate deniers simply do not want to believe experts on anything or don’t understand them.

        Are you going to say you were wrong on NZ and the depression?

    Case study of Neven showing Homewood to be an uneducated ignoramus as most denialists are

    I actually highlighted this on my blog some time ago.

      Compared to you. You don’t even know how long the south Australia battery will last?

        It last as long as it has power and then git gets more.

        The question is not very thought out.

          whenever it is needed. It is the best example of dispatchable power which is why AEMO is so enamoured with it.

          what in the hell is to know. It has energy when there is no demand and none when there is. until it gets more from electricity not used in SA.

          It is a very stupid question.

          do you know the basics of coal powered power station. Tell us why the units break down once every three days pleas.

          You don’t know how long is last?

          You don’t know that machines have breakdowns. Engineers plan for them.

          Why did steam engines replace wind mills at start of industrial revolution?

          I do not need to know how long it wil last as to know that you would need to know demand and supply in real time every day.
          As I said a stupid question.

          On the other hand we do know having some idea of when units in unreliable coal fired power stations break down ans it could lead to black outs as AEMO was worried about this summer.

    on the other hand homewood is an expert on writing about subjects he has no idea about as Neven shows brilliantly.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
