In the summer of 2018, Nexus Media took part in Freedom to Breathe, a cross-country tour that explored how climate change intersects with the racial, social, and economic challenges that Americans face every day. We saw firsthand how fossil fuel pollution and extreme weather are damaging communities across the United States, and how ordinary people are organizing to combat the problem

RIP Google Makani: Perhaps The Entire Airborne Wind Energy Space Will Finally Disappear

Credit to Author: Michael Barnard| Date: Fri, 21 Feb 2020 20:00:03 +0000

With luck, the airborne wind energy space will sink back into academic research efforts involving kitesurfing kites at University of Delft. It’s useful to continue to play with things in academia, and it’s a domain with a lot of engineering complexity that’s a good proving ground for engineers who can go on to do useful things as a result

EIA Releases 2050 Projections For Energy & Makes It Clear That It Hasn’t Been Paying Attention

Credit to Author: Michael Barnard| Date: Wed, 19 Feb 2020 04:00:36 +0000

It’s unclear why the EIA 2050 projections are so skewed from observable realities of costs, age of fleets, and global industry transformation. Like most major energy analysis organizations, they are very poor at predicting the rapidly declining costs of wind and solar, very poor at predicting the rapidity of growth of those technologies, and very poor at understanding that the existing technologies are fairly radically outcompeted
