Warren Buffett Has Started The Biggest Energy Revolution

Green energy has been on the rise with governments pledging to invest and countries committing to using 100% renewable energy in the upcoming decades. In the past several years, the cost of solar has decreased drastically and has grown ten-times more efficient. For the first time, solar energy is cheaper than fossil fuels.

Warren Buffet struck a deal in September to build America’s largest solar farm. Located in the desert outside of Las Vegas, the sunshine will power the world’s largest battery and produce 6-7% of LA’s electricity needs. Costs are half of that of a natural gas power plant. Solar became 2019’s best performing exchange-traded fund and forecasts show solar stocks increasing exponentially if we continue to see progress.

TAE Technologies Wins Three INFUSE Awards to Further Fusion Energy Research

The US Department of Energy (DOE) awarded TAE with 3 INFUSE awards for their “pursuit of clean, safe, cost-effective, scalable, fusion energy, and a continued recognition that it is a viable effort worth public funding and collaboration”. Federal support is necessary to help commercial fusion power plants recognize new ways to efficiently provide carbon-free electricity production. TAE will focus on the US’s energy needs while addressing environmental and security requirements “by resolving industrial-scale issues of technology, cost, and safety”. Using the DOE’s resources, we should see an acceleration in fusion energy development to better our environment and economy using renewable energy.

Michigan energy regulators aim to prioritize ‘action’ over ‘fancy reports’

The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) and Governor Gretchen Whitmer recently launched the MI Power Grid. The initiative is to adapt to changes brought on by increased use of renewable resources. Plans for the next year concentrate on customer engagement, emerging technology, and grid investments. Integrating interconnection rules, demand response, grid security and reliability, and pilot programs are part of the focus while engaging Michigan customers to participate. The MPSC is adamant that they aren’t just discussing change but, actually making sure advancements are made.

DOE must implement 4 long-delayed efficiency standards, 9th Circuit Rules

Imagine the ability to save $8.4 billion and the US Government won’t.

You might think:

  1. Company conspiracies preventing action
  2. Bureaucracy issue
  3. Politics

Well, the answer is 3.

The National Resource Defense Council (NRDC) sued the US Department of Energy (DOE) to FORCE them to release new standards to cover electric equipment.

The story is that when Trump was elected, he froze all new regulations. Caught up in those were these updates to the Energy Policy Act.

Technology advances improved and the DOE needed to update these standards. The NRDC did all Americans a service to reduce energy consumption and save us money.

Micro Power Grids Emerge as Way to Keep Electricity on During Shutoffs

California residents recently underwent massive blackouts due to PG&E’s decision to shut down power in hopes to decrease the wildfire risk. Hundreds of thousands were left without power for days. However, Fremont, CA installed “a microgrid, a small, self-contained electrical system, around a fire station”. Using solar panels, batteries and a generator, they can operate independently and focus on public safety. These microgrids are better for the environment, save customers money on energy bills, and provide safety nets for many that require electricity. The CA Public Utility Commission is exploring similar projects to see how these technologies could be implemented, especially for blackout situations.

More wind, solar and storage could add up to savings for Midwesterners

Do you want to pay less for energy used to run all your electronics? What’s keeping costs high? Would you believe it’s the use of coal, oil and natural gas?

In the Midwest and Great Lakes area, the cost of electricity could decrease by over $48/year for the average residential customer. How? By eliminating the way electricity is priced at the wholesale level.

When oil, coal and nuclear energy were the primary fuel sources, payments for energy were based on the ability to deliver energy quickly. This meant the large fossil fuel plants had to be kept in a ready-to-generate mode.

Today’s wind and solar energy are kept in a ready state without any fuel costs. So, transferring to wind and solar while not paying fossil fuel plants to stay ready would result in large and sustainable cost reductions.

World’s largest offshore wind farm is nearly complete; can power 1,000,000 homes

With environmental concerns in the news, how about some news that is addressing sustainable energy production?

The United Kingdom needed new power, as it is an island surrounded by ocean with wind and waves.

They went big.

Located 75 miles off shore (far beyond the horizon of any land), the UK is installing 174 wind towers over 300 feet high with wind turbine blades spanning 250 feet.

The power could serve over 1,000,000 homes.

The cost is significantly below fossil fuels, it is sustainable, and will not add to global warming or create waste.

This Company Is Converting Energy Efficiency Into Currency

Redaptive works to guide companies to increase energy efficient practices in a cost-effective manner. They assess energy usage then identify and refit less efficient appliances. Old appliances are recycled, preventing more waste and emissions from landfills. Analytics also track and forecast to plan for future needs.

No payment is required up front. Instead, customers compensate them via a share of the energy bill savings through monitored programs and AI validated by utility meter data. Once Redaptive’s contract is up, clients continue to net those funds. Along with saving money, these necessary changes benefit shareholders and the environment.
