  1. 1. A Plan to Power the World for All Purposes With Wind, Water and the SunMark Z. Jacobson LASERSAtmosphere/Energy Program San Francisco, CaliforniaStanford University July 9, 2012
  2. 2. What’s the Problem? Why Act Quickly?Air pollution kills 2.5-3 million people worldwide each year.Arctic sea ice will disappear within 30 years. Global temperatures are rising faster than during deglaciation at end of last ice age.Increasing population and energy demand increase air pollution, global warming, and energy prices over time.

  9. 9. Cleanest Solutions to Global Warming, Air Pollution,Energy Security – Energy & Env. Sci, 2, 148 (2009)ELECTRIC POWER VEHICLESRecommended – Wind, Water, Sun (WWS)1. Wind 2. CSP WWS-Battery-Electric3. Geothermal 4. Tidal WWS-Hydrogen Fuel Cell5. PV 6. Wave7. HydroelectricityNot RecommendedNuclear Corn, cellulosic, sugarcane ethanolCoal-CCS Soy, algae biodieselNatural gas, biomass Compressed natural gas
  10. 10. Why Not Nuclear?9-25 times more pollution per kWh than wind from mining & refininguranium and using fossil fuels for electricity during the 11-19 years topermit (6-10 y) and construct (4-9 y) nuclear plant compared with2-5 years for a wind or solar farmRisk of meltdown (1.5% of all nuclear reactors to date have melted)Risk of nuclear weapons proliferationUnresolved waste issues
  11. 11. Why Not Clean Coal(With Carbon Capture)?50 times more CO2 emissions per kWh than wind150 times more air pollutant emissions per kWh than windRequires 25% more energy, thus 25% more coal mining andtransport and traditional pollution than normal coal.
  12. 12. Why Not Ethanol?Corn and cellulosic E85 cause same or higher air pollutionas gasolineCorn E85: 90-200% of CO2 emissions of gasolineCellulosic E85: 50-150% of CO2 emissions of gasolineWind-BEVs: <1% of CO2 emissions as gasolineEnormous land use and water requirements
  13. 13. Why Not Natural Gas?50-70 times more CO2 and air pollution per kWh than windHydrofracking causes land and water supply degradationMethane from natural gas a main contributor to Arctic ice loss.Natural gas causes more global warming but less air pollutionmortality than coal over 150 years due to less sulfate (a coolingagent) and more methane (a warming agent) from natural gasthan coal. Coal causes higher mortality.

  25. 25. End Use Power Demand For All PurposesIn these tests, California electricity was obtained from WWS for 99.8% of allhours in 2005, 2006. Can oversize WWS capacity, use demand-response,forecast weather, use more CSP to reduce natural gas backup more. Hart and Jacobson (2011); www.stanford.edu/~ehart/

Summary of Plan to Power World with WWSRequires only 0.4% more of world land for footprint; 0.6% for spacing(vs. 40% of world land for cropland and pasture)Multiple methods of addressing WWS variability.Materials are not limits although recycling may be needed.Barriers : up-front costs, transmission needs, lobbying, politics.Mark Z.
