Wow, that 20% and 50% are both eye-popping numbers. Does anywhere in the world replicate that first number? I know there are certain countries that can rely on extraordinary geographical assets (hydro, geothermal) to get high penetrations, but it seems like Germany is doing it in a more replicable way?
Maintaining these low temperatures takes a considerable amount of energy, which photovoltaics could provide. Is this actually something tailored to solar, or just a reason that power demand may be higher than previously forecast for the coming year(s)?
"Daily CO2 emissions fell roughly 17% below the 2019 average...Heading into 2021, the future for renewable energy looks bright...The public now has tangible, first-hand evidence that positive environmental change is possible, which could drive support for renewable energy." The drop in CO2 emissions in 2020 was the result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It had nothing to do with renewable...
Can you share a bit about what the exact type of data should be collected by solar plants, maybe outside of the obvious? Is it just about generation success on a minute-by-minute basis, or what other types of data can be valuable to operations and optimization?
Kitty, this is a very interesting article. The sloppy garbage pickup doesn't seem to be a good analogy to me. Maybe a comparison to a fleet of vehicles would be better. You could compare the mpg or mpgE to see if any have a problem. You could compare different types and models. Then make sure all are running well. The samecwith inverters and solar pv arrays. Checking for and failed...
