    In the third quarter of 2019, some 39% of UK electricity generation was from coal, oil and gas, including 38% from gas and less than 1% from coal and oil combined. Another 40% came from renewables, including 20% from wind, 12% from biomass and 6% from solar.Oct 14, 2019
    Have you seen Planet of the Humans?

    If you approve of 12% of biomass being included in renewable energy then I have a bridge to sell.


    So really the fossil energy or maybe correctly non wind or solar should be 39% +12% = 51%. Although perhaps that makes their blackouts more acceptable somehow.

    A long way from a green economy.

    And makes the claims that 75% of Australian energy can be green seem a bit fanciful.

    I think 100% non carbon is more than possible as soon as we stop funding coal and excusing pollution.

    A post on a investment forum I just wrote my be of interest, Large business are doing it now and saving money.

    Reading about 1.5 billion fuel and energy cost for a large South African miner. They are spending several hundred million on renewable to save money right now. This pod cast mentions many of the biggest miners a by a very interesting Chih-Ting Lo, Principal at EELO Solutions.. One of the most interesting part is the modular aspects- It doesn't take just one option. The underground mining sector is a key driver to electrification to avoid significant ventilation required to vent diesel fuel fumes.
    Diesel to renewables ***** Sound Cloud of just the audio

    Almost certain Hydrogen and Fuel cells for energy solutions are likely to change our mining industry inside the next five years.

    The list of project EELO is working on is by it self interesting yet all seem a bit out of date.

    UK spent STG 9.5 million to pay wind farms for not producing for one day last week when the sun shone and the wind blew.

    if they had not pulled all the wind out of the system it would have crashed.

    That is what non dispatchable power does to a network.
