    Electrek green energy brief: Trump’s renewable infrastructure, 80% solar before big upgrades, 4,000 years of solar and more!

    Trump releases infrastructure possibilities, 4 renewable grid projects included – The renewable projects are, 1. an HVDC transmission line to move wind power from Oklahoma to Tennessee Valley Authority customer, 2. an HVDC line moving wind power from Wyoming to the southwest USA, 3. support of a 3GW, largest in the country, wind farm in Wyoming, and 4. Energy Storage and Grid Modernization in California. Interestingly, all of these projects are partially underway, some with permits and partial construction complete. I wonder exactly what the federal support would be – helping paperwork move? At a minimum, federal support for shovel ready projects can move thinsg along quicker when financiers see backers that cannot go bankrupt.

    Magic number to affect car buying $3/gallon – At what price did you begin to change you driving habits? I’m actually interested in knowing. Right now, Tesla is able to sell like it does because of brand name – and being a great damn car. Its sales don’t seem to be affected by gas prices. Other manufacturers are doing ok with electric in the US – but what price of gas will make them do great?

    The price of gas would indeed be a great incentive for EVs if the price truly reflected the cost of gas, which it does not. Cancel all oil incentives and add a carbon tax to gas and the price would do it's work.
