IEA/NEA: Renewables, Nuclear, Hydrogen Gaining Cost Competitiveness

Credit to Author: Sonal Patel| Date: Thu, 10 Dec 2020 14:47:11 +0000

The post IEA/NEA: Renewables, Nuclear, Hydrogen Gaining Cost Competitiveness appeared first on POWER Magazine.

By 2025, the economics of low-carbon generation technologies are poised to disrupt conventional fossil fuel generation so dramatically, onshore wind could have the lowest levelized costs of electricity (LCOE) on average, and nuclear power could emerge as the dispatchable low-carbon technology with the lowest expected costs.  Those are key findings in the Dec. 9-issued 2020 […]

UK Undergoing ‘Remarkable Shift’ in Power Generation

Credit to Author: Darrell Proctor| Date: Tue, 24 Nov 2020 17:24:00 +0000

The post UK Undergoing ‘Remarkable Shift’ in Power Generation appeared first on POWER Magazine.

Natural gas-fired generation continues to provide much of the electricity in the UK, but renewable power in total at times has taken the lead spot in the country’s generation mix over the past several months. The country has moved almost entirely away from coal, which a decade ago teamed with natural gas to provide three-quarters […]

For those deeply interested in our future energy system and how it will evolve, I highly recommend two in-depth papers published in the last year. Here I will show a similar vision step-by-step using some of the same assumptions and publicly available data using “back of the envelope calculations” (spreadsheets)
