The Grid energy storage, also termed as large-scale energy storage, is an assembly of systems used to stock electrical energy on a big scale within an electrical power network. Electrical energy is stored when making, particularly from irregular power plants like renewable power sources, i.e. wind power, tidal power, solar power surpasses consumption, and resumed […]
Pumping an aquifer to the last drop squeezes out more than water. A new study finds it can also unlock dangerous arsenic from buried clays — and reveals how sinking land can provide an early warning and measure of contamination.
Guest skewering by David Middleton From Inside Climate News… 24-Hour Solar Energy: Molten Salt Makes It Possible, and Prices Are Falling Fast Molten salt storage in concentrated solar power plants could meet the electricity-on-demand role of coal and gas, allowing more old, fossil fuel plants to retire.

U.S. 2017 Billion-Dollar Weather and Climate Disasters Photo Credit: NOAA Earlier this month, while the Trump administration quietly cancelled NASA’s Carbon Monitoring System (CMS), concentrations of carbon dioxide at the Mauna Loa Observatory averaged above 410 parts per million (ppm) throughout April. With such irresponsible action, we-the-people must prepare ourselves for more extreme weather. […]
Even a relatively small number of EVs charging at once in a local area could put the local transformer under serious strain, as Phys.org reports. An influx of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) charging without coordination could prove challenging to the nation’s electric grid, according to research conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable […]
