Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    QUICK NEWS, September 21: CLIMATE FACTS AND THE REPUBLICANS; SOLAR PLUS STORAGE COMING SOON; NEW MILITARY SALUTE TO NEW ENERGY

    CLIMATE FACTS AND THE REPUBLICANS Republicans Got One Question About Climate Change At The Debate, And Totally Screwed It Up

    Emily Atkin, September 16, 2015 (ClimateProgress)

    “…[CNN’s Republican presidential debate had one question about] human-caused climate change. The answers went on for about three minutes before debate moderator Jake Tapper abruptly changed the topic…The question, though, was framed in an interesting way: Ronald Reagan’s own secretary of state, George Shultz, has advocated for some kind of action on climate change, just as an ‘insurance policy.’ Tapper asked, why not follow Reagan’s example…Three candidates responded: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. All three argued that nothing should be done by the American government to combat the problem…[and] all three also backed up their argument using a factually murky claim: that government efforts to combat climate change won’t do anything to solve the problem…[But] it’s just untrue — carbon regulations will make a difference…[and] unilaterally solving global warming was never the intention of carbon regulations. The intention was to do our part, thereby motivating other countries to do theirs…” click here for more

    SOLAR PLUS STORAGE COMING SOON Why storing solar energy and using it at night is closer than you think

    Chris Mooney, September 16, 2015 (Washington Post)

    “…2015 has seen several key announced, completed, or experimental grid-scale projects pairing batteries and solar photovoltaic panels…SolarCity — which is chaired by Tesla CEO Elon Musk — has just announced plans to bring precisely this combo to Hawaii, a state that continues to lead the way when it comes to the adoption of solar and batteries, thanks to its towering electricity costs, which are the highest in the nation…SolarCity will provide 20 years of power from a 52-megawatt-hour battery installation that will be able to send as many as 13 megawatts of electricity [from a Kauaʻi Island Utility Cooperative solar array]to the island’s grid [during evening’s peak demand]…Once that happens, solar energy will be no longer confined to simply being used when the sun is shining…But pairing energy storage with solar arrays is happening in other places, too, albeit at somewhat smaller scales…Energy storage overall is a small market but set to grow quickly…[and] once we break through this barrier, the consequences could be transformative…” click here for more

    NEW MILITARY SALUTE TO NEW ENERGY Military is going big on solar, wind energy

    Joby Warrick, September 21, 2015 (Washington Post)

    “…[The Kings Bay Naval Base solar installation is] only the latest in a series of newly announced solar projects, part of a military-wide renewable-energy binge that has been gaining intensity in recent months. From Florida to California, defense officials are signing contracts with local utilities for huge solar and wind ventures inside military bases or on land nearby…The Pentagon said it is seeking to generate its own power in part to enhance energy security at a time when traditional electric grids are under the threat of cyberattack. But because of their sheer size, the projects are unavoidably affecting energy markets elsewhere in the country, driving down costs for renewables and dampening the demand for power plants that burn natural gas or coal…Last month, the Navy signed a deal to build a [210 MW solar project in the Arizona that] will generate a third of the electricity used by 14 Navy and Marine Corps bases in the western United States…[The Navy is on track] to supply half of the electricity for all its domestic military bases…” click here for more
