    EGEB: UK’s 1st coal-free day since Industrial Revolution, 50GW US of utility solar, largest ever 4GWh battery system, more


    Major Solar Projects List from the SEIA – The USA has about 45GW of solar power running currently. This report looks specifically at projects larger than 1MW – and they’ve got about 20GW worth in the database. More interesting is that there is another 50GW of solar power in the development stages. The installation dates go through 2021 – meaning if we do nothing but what we have in the utility scale pipeline, no new projects and nothing residential or small commercial considered (many 1MW+ projects are commercial or community solar), then we will double our installed solar capacity in five years.

    It looks likely that today will be the first ever working day in Britain without #coal since the industrial revolution!

    While other industrialized nations are ridding themselves of coal, the Trump Administration is ramping up production. Great.

    World’s largest – by 10X – battery storage park proposed4,000MWh lithium ion battery proposed for Australia – 2017 is the year we will see massive projects proposed all over the world for lithium ion, solar and wind. The prices fell so far in the past, and the global capital markets are ready to fund. Of course, this projects is proposed – that means there is a lot of work to do, and its got competition from hundreds of projects in Australia (South AustraliaElonworld’s biggest solar + storage).
