November 20, 2020 In the International Energy Outlook 2020 (IEO2020), the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) projects electricity generation in Africa using two cases with different assumptions about how future electricity needs are fulfilled. In the Maximum Grid Expansion case, in which a centralized grid is developed to meet electricity demand throughout the … [Read more...] about Off-grid solar generation could affect how Africa uses coal, natural gas for electricity
The average energy capacity cost of utility-scale battery storage in the United States has rapidly decreased from $2,152 per kilowatthour (kWh) in 2015 to $625/kWh in 2018. Battery storage systems store electricity produced by generators or pulled directly from the electric power grid and redistribute the power later as needed. At the end of 2018, the United States had 869 … [Read more...] about Utility-scale battery storage costs decreased nearly 70% between 2015 and 2018
The stars and sun are considered infinite sources of energy. This energy represents the process of the nuclear reactions, where matter is transformed into energy. We were able to capitalize on this mechanism and use it regularly to generate energy. The world's electricity is supplied by 16% due to nuclear power. Unlike stars, nuclear reactors, which we will discuss, are based … [Read more...] about Is nuclear energy renewable?
There are many types of renewable energy sources and they can be grouped into five categories: solar, wind, hydro, geothermal, and biomass. Each of these categories presents a unique way of forming. This beautiful world offers us many possibilities for a peaceful and healthy life! Pay attention because I am going to show you the most used and common types of renewable energy … [Read more...] about Types Of Renewable Energy Generation
August 10, 2020 Utility-scale battery storage systems are increasingly being installed in the United States. In 2010, the United States had seven operational battery storage systems, which accounted for 59 megawatts (MW) of power capacity (the maximum amount of power output a battery can provide in any instant) and 21 megawatthours (MWh) of energy capacity (the total amount of … [Read more...] about Utility-scale battery storage capacity continued its upward trend in 2018
