Clean Energy as Shale Booms

I will vote for wind

Research reports clean energy is more effective solution to climate change than coal-fired power plants. They conclude that wind is far better solution to mitigating environmental issues. The need for continuous power can lead to other alternatives in the discourse.  The research indicates “Clean Energy Is Best Answer to U.S. Power Costs” than coal.

The question always leads to energy mix propagation of combined solutions and/or strident political decisions that result in questions of indeterminacy.

Hispanic Business reported the results of a study on clean energy. “Wind, solar and natural gas are cheaper electricity sources than coal-fired plants if climate change costs and health impacts are measured, a U.S. study found. The study authors, writing in the Journal of Environmental Studies, say the United States can cut carbon pollution from power plants in a cost-effective way by replacing coal-fired generation with cleaner options.”

“Using official U.S. government estimates of health and environmental costs from burning fossil fuels, the researchers reported they’ve determined it’s cheaper to replace a typical existing coal-fired power plant with wind turbines than to keep the old plant running. Power plants are the nation’s single largest source of such pollution, accounting for 40 percent of the national carbon footprint, the study authors said.”

“Burning coal is a very costly way to make electricity. There are more efficient and sustainable ways to get power,” study co-author Laurie Johnson, chief economist in the Climate and Clean Air Program at the Natural Resources Defense Council, said. “We can reduce health and climate change costs while reducing the dangerous carbon pollution driving global warming.” Further, such extreme weather caused more than $140 billion in damages in 2012, with much of that bill being paid by American taxpayers, an NRDC report said.”

The implications of consideration are intermittent sources supported by reliable sources of power. The relevance of clean energy development can solve problems supporting environment yet, the role of power is to be consistent and ever-present to support the infrastructure.

Innovation is necessary to manage a seamless clean grid to manage prevailing temperature, weather and equipment failures that are predictive. Balance and counter measures are relevant and vital to smartening the grid for long-term resiliency.
