    QUICK NEWS, March 21: Eight Things To Do About Climate Change; The Fight For New Energy Wires; The Best New Energy Battery

    Eight Things To Do About Climate Change Climate change is happening now – here’s eight things we can do to adapt to it; Donald Trump has rejected global leadership on the issue, so now it’s down to us as individuals to plan, and push through new policies change where we can

    Dr. Missy Stults, 21 March 2017 (UK Guardian)

    “…2016 was the warmest year on record, breaking the record previously held by 2015, and before that by 2014…[Dozens of climatological experts] have repeatedly stated that the global climate is changing and that society is now in ‘uncharted territory’…[This leads to] real and significant impacts to human health, livelihoods, cultural assets, economies, ecosystems, and society as a whole…[But] the Trump administration has decided to gut all programmes related to climate and many related to disaster-preparedness…Here are eight initial actions that individuals, as well as governments, could take immediately to prepare…1) Make a plan…2) Get to know your neighbours…3) Reduce your carbon footprint…4) Call your legislators today, and every day…5) Integrate climate change into all policies, programmes, and decision-making processes…6) Invest in climate science…7) Embrace green infrastructure…8) Embrace climate action as a means of advancing economic development and social justice…” click here for more

    The Fight For New Energy Wires Wind energy firm trying again for OK of cross-country line

    Daniel A. Lieb, March 21, 2017 (Associated Press via Jacksonville Journal Courier)

    “...[Renewable energy transmission builder Clean Line Energy Partners faces opposition from landowners as Missouri utility regulators begin hearing testimony on a request…to build a high-voltage] line from western Kansas across Missouri and Illinois to an Indiana power grid that connects with eastern states…[It has already won approval] from other states for its 780-mile-long power line…[The Grain Belt Express demonstrates] one of the toughest challenges for those seeking to nudge the U.S. toward a greater reliance on renewable energy. Although converting wind and sun into electricity is increasingly affordable, it can be difficult to gain the regulatory and legal approval necessary to carry the power from remote areas where it’s produced to the places where it’s needed most…Other large-scale renewable energy projects in the Midwest, South and West also have faced denials or delays in transmission line approvals from federal and state regulators and courts…” click here for more

    The Best New Energy Battery Study: Li-ion Maintains Cost Advantage For Stationary Energy Storage

    Joseph Bebon, March 10, 2017 (Solar Industry)

    “Providing stationary energy storage is vital to the stability of the power grid as renewables grow and demand rises, but cost has been a challenge…[L]ithium-ion batteries will dominate the stationary energy storage market, though current generation flow battery technology has an economic case for certain very large and long-duration applications…Lux Research says analysts developed new battery cost models based on size, duration, architecture and chemistry, as well as compared Li-ion and flow battery costs…Li-ion beats the most popular vanadium-based flow battery technology on LCOS due to higher round-trip efficiency (83% vs. 65%)…Current technology won’t get lower than $0.35/kWh…Application stacking and multiple value streams will gain importance as energy storage costs fall to about $0.30/kWh by 2036…” click here for more
