A DAD JOKE A MORE FUN WAY TO INTRODUCE THE IDEA OF A RENEWABLE ENERGY.

Why did the wind turbine break up with the solar panel? They had too much friction in their relationship!

Solar power in the doldrumsss

I remember I was in a workshop on energy planning back in 2010, and this guy from a national solar PV initiative was telling us, with utter passion and confidence, that large scale solar was going to get down to price parity with combined cycle gas turbine power plants by 2015. I was skeptical, and even the McKinsey guy who was advising us was shaking his head.

And look at how far solar power has come!

Now, though, it looks like China dumping is pushing the price of solar power down down down.

I was actually invested in a clean energy ETF until recently - kept getting hammered with high interest rates making many RE projects less viable. I do wonder, though, if this is just a blip, and if investing in clean energy is still a long-term positive.

Any thoughts?? 🙏🤔

Harnessing lightning?

Not sure what the right sub to ask this is, but I'm curious what technology exists to absorb some of the energy released during a lightning strike, and how that might work.

Hybrid solar and wind farm

Would there be any drawbacks if any of building a regular wind farm and covering the floor with solar panels?

Also, on another note, have venturi tunnels ever been used to get a better energy output in wind farms?

Wind power

I continually hear that fossil fuels kill more birds than wind turbines. How do fossil fuels kill birds? Is it from production of toxic fumes during extraction?
