NewEnergyNews: New Energy Taking Over

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 Taking Over

    New U.S. EIA And FERC Reports Indicate Renewables On Track To Lead New Generating Capacity In 2019…

    Ken Bossong, December 30, 2019 (SUN DAY Campaign)

    “..[Data for the first ten months of 2019 shows New Energy] (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) is on track to place first [for the year] in the race for new U.S. electrical generating capacity added…[Through October 31, 2019, natural gas holds a diminishing lead] with 49.67% of all new generating capacity compared to 48.45% for the mix of renewables (i.e., wind - 28.55%, solar - 18.59%, hydropower - 0.83%, biomass - 0.41%, geothermal - 0.06%)…

    …[According to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the] balance of new capacity added includes nuclear power (0.99%), oil (0.49%), coal (0.39%), and "other" (0.01%)…[But in] October, gas added just 1-MW of new capacity while the mix of renewables added 721-MW. New renewables capacity - mostly wind and solar - also exceeded that of gas in July, August, and September…[And, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), an additional 7.2 GW of new wind capacity was expected] in December 2019…

    …[That is] roughly equal to the total of new gas capacity (7.8 GW) brought on-line in the ten months since the beginning of the year…[S]olar-generated electricity in October 2019 was 21.65% higher than in October 2018 while YTD, solar's electrical output was 14.59% higher than for the same time-frame a year earlier. Small-scale solar photovoltaics (e.g., rooftop solar systems) alone grew by 19.22% YTD…[Natural gas grew] just 6.71%. Nuclear power grew by a mere 0.08% while coal-generated electricity plunged by 14.46%...” click here for more
