    Electrek Green Energy Brief: A daily technical, financial and political review/analysis of important green energy news

    “If someone walks in with a solar project tomorrow and it takes a billion dollars or three billion dollars, we’re ready to do it” – In the United States, a $1-3B solar project will be 1-3GW of solar power. I’ve seen no projects announced greater than 1GW. More likely, a project of this size will be within a Buffet owned electrical district – Nevada, northwest USA, or able to get its electricity to Nevada. If Buffett is ready to buy, then the world is ready to buy.

    French election 2017: Where the candidates stand on energy and climate change – first off, these are politicians talking…so, grain of salt please…but – Macron says 1. double France’s wind and solar capacity by 2022, 2. ban all shale gas exploration, 3. no new hydrocarbon exploration permits, 4. reduce nuclear power’s share of the French energy mix from 75% today to 50%, 5. pledges to “integrate the ecological cost” into the price of carbon in France by increasing the carbon tax to €100 per tonne of CO2 in 2030. Politics in France will be tilted this direction for a while.
