NewEnergyNews: New Energy Nears National Dominance

NewEnergyNews

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

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, the administration's position on the climate crisis makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Therefore, until November 2020, the NewEnergyNews theme song:

    New Energy Nears National Dominance

    New Wind + Solar Capacity Six Times Greater Than Gas; For The First Time, Wind Capacity Exceeds Hydropower While Solar Tops Oil…

    Ken Bossong, December 2, 2019 (SUN DAY Campaign)

    “…[Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) data shows] solar and wind provided nearly six times as much new generating capacity as natural gas in September…[NatGas] still holds a diminishing lead for 2019 with 52.87% of all new generating capacity compared to 45.14% for the mix of renewables (i.e., wind - 25.46%, solar - 18.49%, hydropower - 0.76%, biomass - 0.43%, geothermal - 0.00%). The balance of new capacity added includes nuclear power (1.06%), oil (0.50%), and coal (0.42%)…[T]he gap between gas and renewables for calendar year 2019 appears to be closing with additions by the latter outpacing gas during each of the last three months reported…

    [By September 2022,] fossil fuels and nuclear power will experience an overall capacity drop of 6,955 MW…[and] net new additions by renewables are projected to total 48,451 MW (wind - 28,918 MW, solar - 17,532 MW, hydropower - 1,404 MW, biomass - 317 MW, and geothermal - 280 MW)…If FERC's data prove to be accurate, renewable energy sources will provide nearly one-quarter (i.e., 24.96%) of the nation's total available installed generating capacity by September 2022 (compared to 21.78% today) with wind alone accounting for over a tenth (10.45%) and utility-scale solar at 4.64%. The balance will be provided by hydropower (8.23%), biomass (1.31%), and geothermal (0.33%)…” click here for more
