The Tesla Battery Heralds The Beginning Of The End For Fossil Fuels | Energy&Environment | Scoop.it
While wind and solar power have made great strides in recent years, with renewables now accounting for 22% of electric energy generated, the issue that has held them back has been their transience. The sun doesn’t shine at night and the wind doesn’t blow year-round – these are the mantras of all those opposed to the progress of renewables.

Transitioning from coal to solar in Kosovo

Transitioning from coal to solar in Kosovo | Energy&Environment | Scoop.it
Kosovo, one of the world's youngest countries, relies on two aging coal-fueled power plants to generate electricity for its population of almost 2 million. The plants are inefficient, dirty, dangerous and unreliable. Customers frequently lose power, and critical facilities such as hospitals rely on stand-by generators. Arizona State University professors, however, have begun working to help address these issues.
