Reality check on renewable energy

Earth 1

Lasrick (2629253) writes "Dawn Stover has another great piece detailing why renewable energy will never provide us with all our energy needs. She deconstructs the unrealistic World Wildlife Fund report (co-written by several solar companies) that claims renewables will be able to provide 100% of the energy needs of several countries by 2050. Good information on why even nuclear power can't do the job."

I Sustain Energy (1)

At unit level energy efficiency optimization, total unit may be divided into systems, subsystems and equipments. Their energy consumption / generation data is collected and evaluated. Taking the actual constraints imposed, an optimization model is developed with the objective of minimizing energy consumption and at the same time without loss of production. In modern optimization models, Sulfurous emissions are also incorporated in the model to optimize the energy resource mix that will meet all the requisites. Since this is dynamic, the evaluation must also be carried out more frequently. [] []
