COP28: The Sultan and the Prostitute

The Sultan – Al Jaber, President of COP 28. The Prostitute – Greta Thunberg, Climate Activist. When the sun goes down and the wind stops blowing, they’ve got a hot date in a Dubai brothel that’ll keep the lights on late. He is following the profits, she is following the climate action – but neither are following the science – as applied to renewable energy, including sustainable biomass for back-up power but NEVER storing carbon dioxide to abate fossil fuels. Don’t be a Sultan or a Prostitute. Be a Scientist. Follow @Scot_Scientist ..read more

Transmitting wind power from Greenland to the European Union
Scottish Scientist
by Scottish Scientist
9M ago
A possible transmission route for wind power from Greenland to Denmark and the European Union, with hydroelectric energy storage, to match wind power supply with customer demand, available en route at Iceland, Scotland and / or Norway. There really is a lot of wind energy resource available to be exploited in Greenland and indeed at all points in between Greenland and Denmark ..read more

The UK Government’s consultation “Facilitating the deployment of large-scale, long-duration electricity storage: a call for evidence” is welcome because my research has found evidence which I’d like to submit in reply to question 4. Current market: Understanding the storage landscape 4. Please provide details of specific LLES projects that could begin development in the next 5 years. These details should include technology type (including intended use of fuel generated through sector coupling), MW and MWh, the business model or route to market, efficiency and expected development, capital, op ..read more

The rotating stabiliser I do like – always a pleasure to do business with Statkraft – but I must nag @GE_Power to offer an adjustable axis version of their rotating stabliser range so that the axis can be aligned to the pole star for maximum efficiency. pic.twitter.com/QmYwywUwAg — Scottish Scientist (@Scot_Scientist) June 18, 2021 The National Grid Electricity System Operator, in its report “Road to Carbon Zero” (so to speak, at the side of which road, NG ESO has parked up to greenwash its reliance on natural gas for back-up power), it says on page 21, and I quote GE Power Conversion sa ..read more

Supposing the electricity grid needs longer-duration energy storage to regenerate power of up to 40GW, as the Renewable Energy Association suggested in March 2021. "energy storage in the UK estimate at least 20GW-40GW (exceeding 200GWh)" Easily done at 2 Scottish sites. 6+GW for 5+ hours / 30+GWh Coire Glashttps://t.co/NKFLZesGcE + 34-GW for 5+ hours / 170 GWh Glasa Morie Glasshttps://t.co/HL6uA5bA3u = 40 GW for 5+ hours / 200+GWh — Scottish Scientist (@Scot_Scientist) March 11, 2021 We can supply that from only 2 new-build pumped storage hydro scheme sites in Scotland, as I first explain ..read more

Green Petrol Vouchers – so that people will vote FOR higher petrol prices
Scottish Scientist

The German Greens just suffered a set back because voters weren’t happy with their plans to hike petrol prices. German Greens choose moderate path in bid to reignite election hopes https://t.co/CX5cwCpVEE — Guardian World (@guardianworld) June 11, 2021 So here’s what to do. Green parties (and any other party appealing for green votes) should adopt a new policy of giving petrol vouchers to the poor (or at least, not to the rich, who don’t need any more freebies!) I say “petrol” vouchers but they could be used to buy diesel too. The average weekly household expenditure on petrol, diesel and ..read more

Click for higher resolution image – HD 1920 x 1080, 4K 3840 x 2160 Punitive transmission charges, sanctioning the generation in Scotland and export south of renewable energy – wind, solar, tidal, biomass etc. – are being unjustly imposed by the UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), the UK’s energy regulator, the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (OFGEM) and the UK’s National Grid’s Electricity System Operator (NG ESO). This amounts to economic warfare by the UK seeking to damage the excellent prospects for phenomenal growth in the electricity secto ..read more
