    @chrisyelland Eskom will never return to its former glory. It does not have sufficient funds to refurbish/renew old stations nor to do environmental retrofits. I wonder where funds for repurposing old stations will come from. they have alrsaid they will prioritise stations lasting beyond 2035

    @chrisyelland so as they start decommissioning those old stations while prioritising newer ones, and as new capacity is added, maybe EAF of newer stations will improve to 75%.

    New study: In 2019 and 2020, Bitcoin mining climate damages were higher than gas power generation and nearly as high as coal power. Since 2018 they've always been higher than: - Petrol + car manufacturing - Meat (inc beef) - Mining (gold, copper, etc) https://t.co/XYZDfRHkZR https://t.co/NnZO1IR0CV

    Good overview here of what I think continues to be the most overlooked story in all of energy and climate: Kenya’s rapid ascent as a geothermal powerhouse. https://t.co/otZFba6Pxf

    It's good to see Eskom investing in the manufacturing of solar & storage solutions, particularly for those without energy access. It's not enough, as we need much more home-grown & South African-made renewable energy solutions, but it's something. https://t.co/h247DyPZwC

    Locally owned renewable energy case studies being discussed in this webinar. Residents over revenue. Focus is on democratic engagement to reimagine how the just transition could also meet socioeconomic considerations of a society. https://t.co/GxU7V8iFvP https://t.co/XXZW652FT1

    Thread: Each week I’m running a simulation of Australia’s main electricity grid using rescaled generation data to show that it can get very close to 100% renewable electricity with just 5 hrs of storage (24 GW / 120 GWh) Results: last week: 99.2% RE last 57 weeks: 98.8% RE (1/4) https://t.co/sFyDGt4SSq

    One of the best factual summaries I've read on how we have arrived at our current power supply crisis. Well done @amaBhungane, can't wait for part 2. https://t.co/nc6qjGnept
