This is a very informative article. One interesting statement was: "(Note that while the low-carbon share is at record highs, renewables’ share of the mix remains slightly below where it was in 1960. This is due to the growth of overall electricity demand.)"
If we assume EV use will increase the electrical demand at a rate greater than the decrease caused by increased efficiency, then in the next 20 years electrical demand will increase. Unlike the period 2009 - 2016 where the electrical demand decreased. Using the statement above as a guide and information from the article, renewables share of the mix will decrease and natural gas share will increase. This would be the conclusion from the article; however, I am not sure I agree. ________________________________ From: EV <ev-boun...@lists.evdl.org> on behalf of Peter Eckhoff via EV <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Friday, October 20, 2017 2:59 AM To: Electric Vehicle Discussion List Cc: Peter Eckhoff Subject: Re: [EVDL] How the US generates electricity The interesting thing about this carbon brief map is that my 5kw array is not listed. My installation predates a number of the large 5+ MW installations that are highlighted when moused over. It would take a thousand of my type of installations to make up one yellow dot on the map but I know that there are such roof top installations in this state just by the sheer number of solar installation companies and by how long they have been in business. I am wondering if this map is under reporting the amount of solar sourced generation taking place? And if so, are other sources of information under reporting the total amount of electricity being generated? We may be "cleaner" than we think. Also, what about solar hot water?
