Join us as we launch a joint webinar series w/ @BerkeleyLab on reform of generator interconnection processes in the bulk power system.

Berkeley Lab now expects floating offshore wind to be cheaper than fixed bottom offshore wind by 2035. I agree. From a new paper on expert forecasts in wind power. (IMHO, the whole thing is fairly conservative on costs, as these surveys tend to be. )


What is the future of wind energy? We asked 140 global experts. They expect even bigger turbines and plants, with more action to increase value to the grid. Read our journal article at THREAD –

The biggest problem with getting fossil gas out of Berkeley homes is the high cost of installing heat pumps. This new analysis shows a wide range of costs in the US, with Bay Area prices among the highest. We need to focus on cutting costs.

We need to make sure the transition to electric cars is equitable. Join a @BerkeleyLaw webinar on transportation decarb equity with our Jessie Denver, Commissioner @Patty_CEC Monahan of the @CalEnergy and Paul Francis of KIGT.

Including summer cooling needs in LIHEAP and WAP is an opportunity to install heat pumps in low income households. Winter bill savings could help cover the cost of summer cooling.
