Clean Energy Moonshot: Community Microgrids and Hydrogen Storage Make 100% Renewable Energy Possible, Practical, and Profitable
In the past few years groundbreaking work has established the viability of a world powered by 100-percent-renewable-energy using existing technologies for a very reasonable financial investment. BUT no implementation pathway currently exists.
This new design provides a viable pathway for the construction of a 100-percent renewable-energy system for cities, then for California, and then the planet. It addresses these problems by changing the scale of the energy system from centralized-power production and long-distance transmission to local energy production, management, and use. Additionally it creates a new model that can integrate the best community-based renewable energy innovation in an effort to make new ideas scalable.
