153 Countries 100% Renewable Energy

153 Countries 100% Renewable Energy

A decade after Prof. Mark Jacobson’s 2015 proposal for 100% renewable energy in 153 countries, significant debates continue. Despite initial challenges and legal disputes, Jacobson defended his model, though some technological predictions, like concentrated solar power, fell short. Notably, California’s renewable energy achievements in 2024 affirm the feasibility and importance of his vision.

Advances in Thorium Nuclear Reactors

India and China have made considerable progress in developing thorium-based nuclear reactors, recognizing their potential as safer, more sustainable alternatives to uranium reactors. India’s program focuses on the Advanced Heavy Water Reactor using thorium and a small amount of uranium-233, while China’s involves pioneering molten salt technology in the Chinese Thorium Molten Salt Reactor project. Alongside, companies like Copenhagen Atomic are also advancing thorium technology, facing challenges like isotope production and corrosion-resistant materials.

AI Needs 5 times More Electricity than Transportation

AI computing’s surge outpaces electricity demand for transportation, potentially exceeding it due to expansive training and inference needs. Massive datacenters from tech giants necessitate immense power, raising speculation about electricity shortages. Tesla leads with significant investments in low-power and high-performance chips, aiming for exascale AI capabilities. This growth in AI computation could increase datacenter electricity use fourfold within a decade, challenging current power grids and possibly requiring dedicated power plants to meet escalating energy demands.

china emissions drop to 45% by 2030

Chinese Coal Drops from 70 to 45 Percent by 2030

Lauri Myllyvirta forecasts China’s coal dependency to drop from 70% to 45% by 2030, influenced by renewable expansions and energy policy shifts reported in April 2024. Despite local-global energy strategy conflicts and bureaucratic hurdles, China’s renewable energy sector is flourishing with vast solar and wind installations, and plummeting solar, battery prices. China’s energy security challenge is compounded by coal quality issues and reliance on imports.
