Cleansource Intro

  1. 1. can the energy industry save the world? a 2-minute proposal
  2. 2. climate change is scary
  3. 3. We may already be past the safe level Safe level? (Hansen et al)
  4. 4. Yet government and voters are not meeting on action... Government tell us what we dont you want? action? know! Voters
  5. 5. there is a lot of negative thinking.. which doesnt help
  6. 6. could a more positive vision help?
  7. 7. here’s the simplistic version to start with...
  8. 8. Energy is the primary source of GHGs energy
  9. 9. but energy is great
  10. 10. it is the engine of civilisation
  11. 11. it powers our knowledge banks
  12. 12. and we need more... for everyone on the planet
  13. 13. what would that look like?... to power 9 billion people? - at european levels? 9 billion x 50 MWh/y =
  14. 14. and how does this compare 4.5 x 10^5 TWh/y
  15. 15. say, to the energy available from the sun?
  16. 16. (compares pretty well...) 4.5 x 10^5 TWh/y
  17. 17. 2.3 x 10^8 Solar energy TWh/y on land 4.5 x 10^5 TWh/y source: Nitsch
  18. 18. ... energy also available as wind... 2.6 x 10^7 Wind energy TWh/y on land source: Nitsch
  19. 19. Hydro Wave & Tidal ... and many other Geothermal renewed sources Biomass
  20. 20. and for the transition, we have low-C options including nuclear and fossil with carbon capture and storage
  21. 21. clean is now a small share... 5000 Clean energy as share of European electricity 4000 3000 but clean energy 2000 growing at 25 - 40% per year 1000 renewable nuclear 0 hydro 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 source: IEA / WRI
  22. 22. Clean as share of European electricity 5000 4000 3000 if growth 2000 maintained... 1000 renewable nuclear hydro 0 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017
  23. 23. Clean as share of European electricity 5000 4000 3000 it becomes a big share, 2000 and with the right policies... 1000 0 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017
  24. 24. (zooming out) 5000 4000 3000 2000 1000 0 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017
  25. 25. Clean as share of all European energy 30000 25000 ...could we repower Europe 20000 in around 20 years? 15000 heat, transport 10000 5000 electricity 0 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20
  26. 26. such a programme would lead to large-scale growth in manufacturing
  27. 27. such a programme would lead to large-scale growth in manufacturing
  28. 28. such a programme would lead to large-scale growth in manufacturing
  29. 29. ... and construction
  30. 30. ... and construction
  31. 31. ... and engineering
  32. 32. ... and jobs
  33. 33. ... and would equip us to go on to power the world
  34. 34. Is this a vision which could win popular support?
  35. 35. Should we try to make a plan?
  36. 36. Wave_g1 1 1 1 40 Demands 35 Air con 30 Light 25 GW 20 Space heat 15 Heat 10 EV charge 5 Ele spec We need a system which 0 1 1 1 Supplies balances supply and demand.. 60 50 TradeIn Optional 40 Aer_g2 30 Aer_g1 GW Wave_g1 20 Sol_g1 Tide_g1 10 Hyd_g1 0 CHP 1 1 1 image: Barrett -10 TradeOut
  37. 37. .. and possibly a large-scale grid, and panregional market image: Czisch
  38. 38. its a big task
  39. 39. that’s why we’re creating:
  40. 40. the knowledge platform for the design and construction of a clean energy system www.cleansource.me
  41. 41. a not for profit funded through membership www.cleansource.me
  42. 42. from the core industries energy € finance bringing together companies and experts engineering policy
  43. 43. to aggregate knowledge and expertise
  44. 44. to plan and design the clean energy system ! ?
  45. 45. to communicate the facts and the vision !
  46. 46. to collaborate to make it happen ... solution yes would be to join ...
