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.

    Toward Europe’s Solar 3.0

    Accelerating the path towards ‘solar energy 3.0’

    Stefan Degener, 12 January 2018 (EURactiv)

    “Europe is currently in the first stage of photovoltaic solar development. Moving to the next phases, 2.0 and 3.0, will require a smart new Green Deal that avoids the ‘boom-and-bust’ developments of the past and leverages private investment to achieve high renewable energy goals…[2018 could be the year in which the European Union moves toward] the recommended goal of having 35% of its electricity generated from renewable sources by 2030…By most accounts, upsizing the current commitment of 27% is the only feasible path to realising the region’s carbon-reduction obligations by 2030…[and] not unachievable…[C]oncerns remain about the so-called ‘ambition gap’…[and] shortfalls in national contributions…[A smart new Green Deal should recognize the need for new rules] for cross-border grid integration…[and] enabling the investments required…[Modernising electricity markets] would allow members states to use the power of private investment to absorb a significant amount of the expenditure needed…The next phase, 2.0, uses advanced plant control systems to strategically manage the output of a solar power plant to create spinning reserves and other ancillary grid services…[to enable] penetration of approximately 40%...Phase 3.0 delivers fully-dispatchable solar using energy storage and time-shift techniques…[with] the potential for as much as 80% penetration…” click here for more
