    New Storage Makes World New Energy The Climate Solution

    The Big Myth About Renewable Energy You Need To Stop Believing

    Ray Fernandez, April 17, 2022 (SlashGear)

    “…By 2022, the consequences of climate change, and the benefits of clean energy, have been well established…[But] clean energy skepticism and myths still proliferate…All electricity systems, whether used domestically by businesses or by industries, are composed of two main elements: the energy generation system, and the energy storage and distribution network…[No energy plant works] around the clock, year-round…Disruptions and downtime are very common…

    …[Wind and solar] idle times are set by weather…[Hydroelectric] generation drops in times of drought…[Fossil fuel and nuclear plant disruptions] can affect up to 12% of their total operating time…Solar and wind projects, like all energy generation projects, are linked to energy storage and distribution systems. During outages or on days when the sun does not shine and the wind does not blow, storage systems kick in…Pumped Storage Hydropower systems totaled 95% of all energy storage in the U.S. in 2020…When demand for energy is low, these systems use surplus energy to pump water into a reservoir at elevated heights. When demand for energy is high, the water is released to generate energy through hydroelectric systems…

    …[But hydroelectric projects] alter and damage the environment…[Battery solutions] can be scaled to a customer's need...[but are expensive, risk chemical fires, battery degradation, and use] problematic materials like lithium…[Gravity energy storage uses excess energy to raise] heavy blocks… when demand is high, the blocks come down and the force of gravity is converted back into electricity….Innovating in energy storage is as key for the future, as scaling renewable energy generation…” click here for more
