Europeans and Americans are beginning to see the results of depending on renewables.

Recommended Posts

https://oilprice.com/Latest-Energy-News/World-News/Protests-Break-Out-in-Europe-As-Electricity-Prices-Soar.html Europe is having problems with energy supply due to depending on Russian natural gas, and coal of their own to meet much of their need. Russia is going to ask a hefty price to come up with the money to pay for their new pipeline Nordstream 2. 

Many people are wondering how to cope with inflation and energy prices in America. Taxes are also going up in America and the corporate taxes always filter down to the average consumer. The left has many ideas on spending money, that we cannot afford, on building charging stations for EV's that will be built in the future, and will be sold with $7,500 rebates for those who might want them. EV's will require more electricity from whatever source and more power lines to deliver it. It will be the Greatest Show on Earth and have a HUGE price tag.

Americans are beginning to see the results of depending on renewables.????

 

what a load of babble, you do not post anything to back this up.....Reality Hurricane Ida shutdown 10 percent of the US oil and nat gas production causing a spike in prices in nat gas starting on Aug 26th from $4 to 0ver $5.30...... Dependable Nat Gas?????? Looks like we are all paying the price for being to reliant on Nat gas. Figure it out the cost of renewables did not go up , Nat gas did.

He may not be able to, but i can. You see, there are subsidies in the US at federal, state, and county levels, and nevermind that government is as good as making new subsidies as is it masking inflation and unemployment numbers, plus many fully renewable energy companies, declare itself as small companies or fully private ones in order to not show accountance, thing like the company revenue and the GWh generated.

Whatever lazard says, or whatever renewable energy portals say when they go full Soyface doesn't have any value.

Lazard is not an audit office, is a sell-side analysis company, they get paid to sell stocks.

Rosatom got a revenue of around 20U$D/MWh
South Texas Project NPP is around 29U$D/MWh
TVA has a revenue of 70U$D/MWh, and most traditional electric utilities are around 100U$D/MWh
Avangrid has a revenue of 540U$D/MWh
Orsted has a revenue of 390U$D/MWh
¿Where you think that money is coming from?, is either taxes or subsidies
just chek renewable energy credit auctions in new jersey at over 200U$D/MWh

nosonice, maaaaate - you would be well advised to check out overseas stories. Notably the huge problems being caused in the UK by a wind drought.. this article from Fortune magazine is just a tiny part of the coverage of this problem. In some of the coverage I read they're even having to turn the coal plants back on.. businesses have been forced to suspend production. 
Same thing has been happening in Australia during heat waves.. renewables have to be backed up, big time, end of story.. they are far less reliable than natural gas.. Sure gas prices spike, so? At least it was still being delivered..

I experienced the Texas storm. When you mix Republicans and nat gas, people die. If Texas followed the rule of its own laws they would jail those who hire illegals. This population drop of illegals going home because of lack of jobs would ease nat gas demand and allow renewables with batteries to expand market share.

Why hydro

This chart's 'y' axis...

...per KWH?  Yes that's energy...but it's hard to wrap my mind around something...

Hydro really releases that much CO2 per KWH generated over some life cycle??

If it is supposed to be "capital impacts", then the correct unit should be KW.

If you wish to use KWH, you must include the impact of any fuel consumed.  And any fuel consumed to "fabricate" and deliver that fuel.

It would be of interest to see FF generation on the same chart.  The USA's total generation average is WELL ABOVE 500 grams/KWH (on top of the capital impacts).

 

Also, does hydro's concrete/cement portion include the dam? While hydro does need lots of concrete, I can guarantee you there is MUCH more concrete (and rebar out the wazzo) per KW in a modern nuc plant if you exclude the dam from hydro.

A dam is used to control water for many other important purposes, power generation is a side benefit.

There's some argument to be made that FF is really "biomass", just "well aged" biomass.

Tell me, ¿How many utilities that are fully renewable, have public accounts and statements about their revenue and electricity generation? Apart from of course, Orsted and Avangrid
imagen.png.ac625f4f5e3d2dbb37651be6c7cd8ee6.png
That's the revenue and power generation of orsted offshore sector in 2019, stated in their website, 40.2 billion DKK is around 6.34 billion USD, we divide 6.34 billion by 12,000,000 MWh and we get 528U$D per MWh, and money has to come from somewhere, either from tariffs or subsidies

Is you against Orsted numbers

Well, it depends, dams need a lot of concrete, the bratsk dam needed over 13 million tons of concrete, and they operate at 50% capacity factor because when it rains the most, Autumn and Spring is when electricity demand is the lowest, and viceversa. And the fuel to just run the whole contruction equipment for 5 or 10 years during construction.

There's also methane production in water bodies but that may or may not be resolved, in the oxygen poor sediment rich areas of a lake or a dam Archea produces methane as dead organic matter falls in  the sediments and decomposes.

the IPCC says that is 24G/KWh without the methane, but that it varies project to project wildly, depending if a dam will be used for 50 or 100 or 200 years.

Is you against Orsted numbers

https://orsted.com/en/our-business/offshore-wind/our-offshore-wind-capabilities

sigh, if only you guys had a bugger of a clue. 

If you look at the actual numbers and not the marketing widget you will see that their selling price for offshore wind was 43.6 GBP/MWh.

If you actually go and look at the Orsted numbers and not just the stupid little marketing widget you will see a very different story. Particularly notice the 127 TWh of gas sales.

https://orstedcdn.azureedge.net/-/media/annual2019/ar19-en-summary-2019.ashx?la=en&rev=72b9bd2465c54d04824656221b49ee06&hash=F2CD4C6E257FC2933A455FFD2B384CDC

That tiny marketing piece says specifically offshore sector, which is give or take half of orsted annual revenue, and indeed the number of 12TWh a year coincides with the small little marketing piece. ¿how many offshore oil platforms orsted has?

Anyway heres the beatrice wind farm annual financial statements for 2020

https://www.thegwpf.com/content/uploads/2021/04/image.png
It had a revenue of £38/MWh trough electricity sales and £118/MWh through subsidies, which gives us 213USD/MWh, without the effects on the redundant infrastructure to balance intermittency, butt wait, theres more

Beatrice wind farm had a CAPEX of £2.2 billion for 588MW with factor of 45%, which in dollars makes that around an effective 6688USD/KW and will last anywhere from 20 to 30 years, without incluiding a decline in factor due to wear and tear

BEIS estimate of capital cost was £1.6 million/MW 72% of the final estimate

On the other hand the VVER-TOI reactors at construction at Kursk will be built for a similar price as those ones in Civaux France, 1400USD/KW, and will last anywhere from 60 to 120 years, so for the same cost per GW of Beatrice you can build *14* VVER-TOI reactors from Russia. They already builtNovovoronezh-II in 1900USD/KW.

Thats what you get when you eliminate all the parasitic bureaucrats activists and middle mans and get things done as they should.

I corrected my post for offshore wind only. Orsted sale price for offshore wind was 43.6 GBP/MWh.

So effectively only 1/4 of their offshore revenue comes from electricity sales, and the rest through other means.
