NewEnergyNews: QUICK NEWS, December 12: The “Fight-Climate-Change” Diet; Market For Advanced EV Batteries To Quadruple By 2026; The Low Lifecycle Costs In New Energy


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.

    The “Fight-Climate-Change” Diet The diet that helps fight climate change; Do we all have to go vegan to save the world?

    Andy Murdock, December 12, 2017 (VOX)

    “…While only around six percent of the U.S. identifies as vegan, according to one recent survey, Americans are starting to embrace some vegetarian habits: Per capita beef consumption has been declining since the 1970s, dropping off steeply in the last decade…[If everyone were to move toward] the Mediterranean diet — which is rich in nuts and beans and has a lot of fish, maybe chicken once a week, maybe red meat only once a month…[it would be] the equivalent of taking about a billion or more cars of pollution out of the planet every year…[G]lobal adoption of a Mediterranean diet could help reduce global warming by up to 15 percent by 2050…[The Mediterranean diet also] can reduce the incidence of Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and other chronic diseases…[and increase] overall longevity…[Eliminating 90 percent of meat intake is more important than eliminating all of it and it] can take a bite out of climate change.” click here for more

    Market For Advanced EV Batteries To Quadruple By 2026 Market Data: Advanced Energy Storage for…Light Duty Passenger and Medium and Heavy Duty Buses and Trucks…

    4Q 2017 (Navigant Research)

    “EV sales continue to rise rapidly around the world. Declining battery costs have positioned these vehicles for dramatic market success in the years to come, and long-range EVs are now competitive in price among economy brands after subsidies. This milestone marks a threshold likely to move EVs from a niche vehicle option to the next vehicle option for many light duty (LD) and some medium/heavy duty (MD/HD) vehicle consumers. Due to the effect of emissions compliance requirements, charging infrastructure considerations, and customer awareness, sales of battery EVs (BEVs), plug-in hybrid EVs (PHEVs), and hybrid EVs (HEVs)—collectively referred to as xEVs—continue to vary in popularity across all regions…[Lithium ion (Li-ion) battery chemistry] has taken precedence, particularly with BEVs and PHEVs [and advanced battery energy capacity for automotive applications is expected to increase from 125 gwh in 2017 to 568 gwh in 2026]…” click here for more

    The Low Lifecycle Costs In New Energy New study smashes myths about “embodied” energy in wind and solar

    Simon Evans, 12 December 2017 (Carbon Brief via RenewEconomy)

    “Building solar, wind or nuclear plants creates an insignificant carbon footprint compared with savings from avoiding fossil fuels…[Understanding future emissions from low-carbon power systems by integration of life-cycle assessment and integrated energy modelling, which] measures the full lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions of a range of sources of electricity out to 2050, shows] the carbon footprint of solar, wind and nuclear power are many times lower than coal or gas with carbon capture and storage (CCS). This remains true after accounting for emissions during manufacture, construction and fuel supply…Critics sometimes argue that nuclear, wind or solar power have a hidden carbon footprint, due to their manufacture and construction…Yet zero-carbon sources of electricity are not the only ones to have a hidden, indirect carbon and energy footprint…For coal and gas, these lifecycle energy uses and emissions come from extraction machinery and fuel transport. Significantly, they also come from methane leaks at pipelines, well heads or coal mines. These lifecycle emissions continue, even if coal or gas plants add CCS, which also may not capture 100% of emissions at the power plant…” click here for more
