Does Concentrated Solar Power Have the Answer to Intermittency Concerns?

by John Whitney AIA

For some time now, the intermittent nature of both solar and wind renewable energy generation systems has been a thorn in the side of the clean energy industry.  Coal, natural gas, and nuclear advocates have trumpeted the fact that generation capacity factors for their power plants range from 85% to 90% while solar and wind numbers are in the 20% to 35% range.  Over and over we get hammered with the question:  What happens when the sun goes down and the wind stops blowing?

Well, as renewable energy supporters have been correctly responding, the simple two-part reply is:  (more…)

How America Can Create Jobs . . . by Andy Grove

How America Can Create Jobs

By Andy Grove, of Intel & Lecturer in Management Stanford Graduate School of Business

This is an interesting article discussing the need to recreate the scaling process in the U.S., i.e. nurture the start-up, fund it, but then rather than expatriate the manufacturing abroad, keep the jobs domestic. In this way not only is there more U.S. employment but we can also harness and nurture the scaling and innovation that comes with being an integral part of an effective ecosystem in which technology know-how can accumulate, experience can build on experience, and closer relationships can be forged between suppliers and customers. The author cites examples of the job machine (scaling and innovation process) breaking down in computers, and in alternative energy. Photovoltaics, a U.S. invention, are now primarily manufactured in China. “U.S. employment in the making of photovoltaic films and panels is perhaps 10,000—just a few % of estimated worldwide employment.” Not only have we foregone a large number of jobs, we risk breaking “the chain of experience that is so important in technological evolution. As happened with batteries, abandoning today’s “commodity” manufacturing can lock you out of tomorrow’s emerging industry.” (more…)
