IEA Underreports Contribution of Solar and Wind by a Factor of Three Compared to Fossil Fuels - The Energy Collective

...... similar. This is far from true.

Why Solar Keeps Being Underestimated - The Energy Collective

...... rapidly decarbonize the energy system. Some scenarios emphasize the role of carbon capture and storage to render coal- and gas-fired power plants more climate-friendly.Others point to nuclear energy and a third group is more optimistic on renewable sources. But it's plausible that even these more optimistic outlooks have greatly underestimated the potential of solar power, writes Dr Felix ......

Can Gas Turbines Using Nuclear Fuel Change The Energy Game? - The Energy Collective

...... gas turbine machines since the earliest days of nuclear power development. Unfortunately, nearly all of them assume that helium is the only gas that can be used to directly cool a nuclear reactor. That assumption - which is false - leads in two possible direction. One is the path that General Atomics and PBMR took on paper, which was to conceive of the use of a helium turbo machine. That ......
