The risk of banking on renewable energy Whirlpool Turbines Can Provide 24/7 1 day ago   07:18

Germany, Europe's biggest economy with a huge industrial base, has long aimed to make the transition to green energy. In 2018, renewables such as wind, hydroelectric, solar and bio-mass power made up more than 40 percent of Germany's energy mix. However, conventional energy sources still play a big role, and the clock is ticking. Germany plans to phase out nuclear power by 2022 and coal by 2038. But there's a catch. Relying on renewables can pose a risk to energy security.

If they force it, they'll eventually get there 😆
Talha Tariq
They should force companies that use massive amounts of electricity to make and generate their own power renewably
So wish we would see this as the equivalent of a world war and invest more

Solar panels are black so they attract Heat causing global warming🐶

Carbon neutral by 2050 is a recepie for extinction . We need to step it up to stabilize the biosphere or we are finished.
Christopher Darker
ATOMIC FUSION will be here soon.
Goodbye wind farms and solar P.V

Human is so short sighted. If every human has to buy battery storage solar panel for their buildings , houses, across the entire cities, across the entire road network, it won't be cheap but we didn't have any petrol station for 2000 years and it only took us 100 years to build the petrol infrastructure.

4:23 man in only there was a clean and reliable energy source..
If such a magical thing existed, I'd call it nuclear power..
Robin Yilmaz
1:20 this graph shows that on average, all other European countries have a greater portion of clean power than Germany does. Germany world leader? Not without nuclear.

We could all be in heaven... where we are all going to go....the nonexistence heaven...

There is perfection before we are there not?....

Over infinite time, Physics and Chemistry created biology.. biology created us, after 4 000 000 000 years of evolution...

We are the victims, and victimizers of that UNINTELLIGENT process, as we were created IMPERFECT, in an IMPERFECT environment for us...

We are the prisoners, rapists, orphans, murderers, blind, drunk, retarded, homeless, losers, sick, of this reality that we do not control nor understand totally...

We are IMPERFECT, because our design is so, not because we want to be IMPERFECT...

We are a problem to we create all our sickness and misery! that not idiotic, ridiculous?

There is PERFECTION before we are born!..
Please understand this:
There is PERFECTION before we are born!.. we come from heaven/God!...

Do not impose this stupid life on others, be kind, intelligent, merciful...

End all The Savior......

If you understand this message pass it on, share with others its importance and value, copy, then paste this message, make your own, post them on YouTube comments section....

Became a fighter for the ultimate cause...PERFECTION....


Learn the facts, watch the playlist...

Still did not explain how Germany can have enough baseload power without nuclear. Renewables with gas backup will still produce greenhouse gas and lots of it since wind and solar only operate effectively 10% to 30% of the time, even with a smart grid.
Ben Jamin'
Germany and thus Europe now under the thumb of Putin. Well done Germans.
Esko Pettay
It is madness to shut down nuclear power plants. Nuclear is the safest and cleanest way to produce energy.

So burning coal and causing Gloal Warming has no cost to Germany's economy ?
Stefan Lucian Vladescu
You are soooo bias to renewable energy!!! Just wait for 10 years and you will se how stupid you where ! ! !
Paul Adams
The number of cities reporting they are predominantly powered by clean energy has more than doubled since 2015, as momentum builds for cities around the world to switch from fossil fuels to renewable sources.

It is wise for Germany to shift from fossil to renewables.
The problem is that German's have been fed one-sided news on nuclear. Without facts and almost only mud from GP and so.

This made them take a political choice to not follow science en technology.

And be locked into a spiral of cost and constant pollution by choosing wind and solar (with 20 year lifetimes).
And needing huge control and backups by the dirtiest fossil industry in the last decades and for ever if they keep this policy.

While so called atomausstieg would happen.
Nature and energy do not stop to exist.
There are 450 nuclear reactor in the world and are increasing on today's prognosis.

And will increase more by more countries only have that option to replace coal and (Russian) (Bio) gas.
And the world electricity market will only increase.

It is unsustainable to be so unknowing of what nuclear really is, dogmas will brake.
Tibor Z
Make more renewables. Cut out coal and increase natural gas. Plant more renewables next to heavy industries. I believe that would solve the problem.

Whirlpool Turbines Can Provide 24/7 The risk of banking on renewable energy 1 day ago   03:16

This whirlpool turbine can power dozens of homes, providing energy 24 hours a day. Belgian company Turbulent have possibly come up with a solution to generate energy for small-scale rural areas. Using the power of water, the turbine can be installed to most river and canals, using the current to produce energy - which the creators claim is enough to power up to 60 homes.

Could this be the future for all energy production?
