Ryan Wiser @BerkeleyLabEMP and team conduct an expert elicitation to project wind power costs to 2050 that finds cost reductions of 37% to 49%, and compare back to a previous survey to understand what has changed. https://go.nature.com/3mTkwCG

“Sure, it's not sunny all the time, it's not windy all the time. But what we're dealing with now is that we have nearly half of our supposedly firm and reliable resources, our gas, our coal and our nuclear, down all at the same time." - @cohan_ds

Considering I've spent the last 27 years working on cutting carbon in the power sector, this new report from Ryan Wiser at @BerkeleyLabEMP is highly satisfying. Emissions in 2020 were half what EIA forecast in AEO2005. #energytwitter, a toast!
