After watching the video in this article a couple things strike me.
In Canada we have the upcoming cap and trade swap of funds which I don’t see helping much. Then in Ontario there was a massive addition to the grid of solar and wind which has been overpriced compared to fossil fuel to encourage development, but too much has been produced vs what is required, so this has beenreally messed up. A good thing has been tarnished. Perhaps I am kind and thinking this is a typical result when governments get involved.
On the positive we have capacity and excess.
However the government has missed the “find efficiencies “ part of the plan.
i heard yesterday how Ontario has to pay billions to get rid of the excess energy generated from our green solar and wind productions.
I am reminded of Jeremie Riffkins book and presentation a number of years ago about the hydrogen economy. How that would all integrate. That advice in the book has not happened to the best of my knowledge, or I have not seen it. If it did and it should we would have a pretty amazing system amen stewardship of our green resources.
Ontario government has just cancelled I believe over 700 new installation contracts as it has too much electricity and no way to store it. https://www.spreaker.com/episode/16149573
Money should have been invested into the storing as part of the Hydrogen Economy. Maybe it is happening someplace. Let’s hope that vision gets resurrected and we move forward in this world.
That part of the production has to be realistically fixed before moving forward with more large scale green energy production in a perfect world. Saying that it should still be expanded. Would be good to find lower cost options for solar and wind as well. We all should be producing our own if and when possible.
This is not my only thought on the matter, a simple observation.
