09 Steadying the Wind

BS WIND-HYDROPOWER HYBRID PROJECT GE Renewable Energy and Max Bögl Wind AG Wind is an abundant and increasingly cheap source of energy, but it’s intermittent. Depending on how the breeze is blowing, turbines can generate too little power, or even too much, raising headaches for grid operators and casting doubt on wind energy’s large-scale viability. High in the hilly Swabian-Franconian Forest, in southern Germany, GE and Max Bögl Wind developed an elegant solution: Their wind-hydro energy-storage project will combine giant turbines (each is 584 feet high), several reservoirs, a hydroelectri

Clean Power Is Too Hot for Even Trump to Cool

Matthew Philips On Nov. 4, Walmart announced an aggressive plan to increase its investments in renewable energy, pledging to power half its operations from wind, solar, and other renewables by 2025 and to cut the carbon footprint of its operations by 18 percent over the same period. Ten days later, Microsoft made its largest wind-power purchase agreement ever, with a deal to buy 237 megawatts of electricity from turbines in Kansas and Wyoming to run data centers in Cheyenne. In between those announcements, Donald Trump was elected president, in part by calling climate change a hoax and vowin

Better Batteries

Justin Worland In an otherwise empty lot near San Diego, two dozen trailers jammed with 400,000 batteries are part of an experiment that could revolutionize clean energy. If it works, the batteries would solve a key problem with wind and solar power—namely, that one works only on blustery days and the other when the sun is out. Developers say the batteries will store excess energy for later use, allowing power providers to rely less on fossil fuels as a backup. Energy experts are optimistic, as are the many investors with a stake in the sector. “Networks care about reliability,” says Logan G
