Contributing to climate change is once again expensive—at least in the eyes of the federal government. That’s after the Biden administration on Friday raised the social cost of carbon to about $51 per ton....
At the top level a multi-billion dollar infrastructure investment plan announced by the national government included explicit mention of renewables and the role of energy storage in integrating them to the grid and the plan could lead to direct investment into a 250MW / 1,000MWh battery storage system in Southwestern Ontario...
Flow batteries are promising in their ability to decouple energy and power, to be assets with long operational lifetimes and durability over thousands of cycles, with low flammability and in supporting a circular and sustainable economy through their use of materials which can be sourced as by-products of other industries like steel-making and ultimately recycled into new flow batteries...
"This investment will help develop and validate SMR technology.. and also establish a first-of-a-kind, world-class clean energy system that can be used in Canada but also around the world, Moltex's reactor - which will recycle existing used nuclear fuel to produce clean energy - will also have the potential to reduce waste storage needs..."
The drawbacks to nuclear and green hydrogen are compounded by the burgeoning success of renewables – both solar and wind are getting cheaper and more efficient, year after year. There is also a growing realisation that a combination of renewables, smart storage, energy efficiency and more flexible grids can now be delivered at scale and at speed – anywhere in the world....
