Nanoscience – Engineering on the edge
An ORNL-led team engineered edge structures in a two-dimensional material, a transition metal dichalcogenide monolayer consisting of molybdenum atoms in one plane and selenium atoms in two overlapping planes. Heating the material to 500 degrees Celsius on a Protochips heating microchip device sped local chemical reactions that create pores with different edge structures. Scanning transmission electron microscopy allowed each individual atom to be seen during the transformation of the 2D material while theory and simulations were used to determine the energetics and chemical reaction pathways. The ability to guide local transformations opens the door to creating hybrids, such as a material that is a semiconductor but that sports metallic conducting edges, or “nanowires.” Video courtesy of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, U.S. Dept. of Energy Reference: Xiahan Sang, Xufan Li, Wen Zhao, Jichen Dong, Christopher M.

Electric Transmission 101: How the Grid Works
Learn more and download slides at http://www.eesi.org/briefings/view/070913transmission Table of contents: http://youtu.be/C8wCAbuSzUE?t=15s The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) and WIRES (Working group for Investment in Reliable and Economic electric Systems) held a briefing about the operational basics of high-voltage transmission to help explain the complex economic and policy challenges facing the grid in the 21st century. By delving into the grid's operation and the interstate markets for bulk power it supports, the briefing was designed to provide a foundation for discussions about cost responsibility, land use issues, transmission planning, integration of variable renewable energy resources, and other issues that are becoming more important to the future of the power industry.

Investments in the grid also create good, stateside jobs. The United States is likely to invest more than $300 billion in electric transmission during the next 20 years. The barriers to the further development of transmission capacity have become so highly visible that President Obama released a memorandum on June 7 establishing energy corridors that should facilitate new transmission projects on federal lands. Previously, FERC Order 1000, issued in July 2011, had set out strong steps to promote regional and interregional transmission planning.

Water Resources
005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

Mary Ann Piette | The Need for Customer Electric Load Flexibility
The electricity grid is transitioning from a centralized and uncoordinated set of large generators to a framework that includes decentralized and coordinated distributed energy resources. Advances in renewable generation, energy storage, efficiency, and controls technology present a significant opportunity for demand-side investment that is matched to the needs of the future grid infrastructure and operations, but the interplay of controls technology and grid operations makes estimating and realizing the potential of DER a significant challenge. Supply curves for conserved energy have been used to synthesize energy efficiency opportunities for electricity system planners, showing how demand side resources compete with power plants. An LBNL project developed a similar approach for supporting policymakers who now face a range of technology options for DER, with a focus on describing the potential for DR to provide flexibility to the grid. I describe our modeling approach using supply curves for demand response across four key dimensions: reshaping with rates, shedding at critical time, shifting to capture renewables, and fast-response "shimmy" to balance the grid. In a California-focused study, we find a significant potential for DR to support the grid, and a need for integration between DR and energy efficiency. Speaker Biography: Mary Ann Piette is a Senior Scientist and Director of the Building Technology and Urban Systems Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. She oversees LBNL's building energy research activities with the US Department of Energy and over 25 other R&D sponsors. She is also the Director of the Demand Response Research Center. Mary Ann's work involves developing and evaluating new technology and building components, controls, operations, simulation, whole building and electric load shape analysis and behavior. She is also lead researcher at LBNL on the automated demand response technology. Mary Ann has authored over 90 peer reviewed publications related to energy efficiency and demand response and has worked at LBNL since 1983. She has a MS in Mechanical Engineering from UC Berkeley and a Licentiate in Building Services Engineering from the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden.
[Legislative Council] QWN - Ridgelands Resources Community Fund
7 June 2018 Legislative Council, NSW Parliament Question Without Notice - Ridgelands Resources Community The Hon. ADAM SEARLE (14:30): My question without notice is directed to the Leader of the Government, the Minister for Resources, and Minister for Energy and Utilities. Given his previous answers on Ridgelands' licence requirements, which included setting up a $5 million community fund, what is his response to emails from the resources and energy division of the NSW Department of the Planning and Environment, dated 3 August 2017, which states, "We've inadvertently approved the variation of the community fund without knowledge of the special condition 58."? Given this inadvertent approval led to the community fund obligation being reduced to just $500,000, why was his department not aware of the licence condition? The Hon. DON HARWIN (Minister for Resources, Minister for Energy and Utilities, and Minister for the Arts) (14:31): What matters is that the money has been paid in full. In fact, the cheques are going out the door as we speak. I imagine the Mayor of Muswellbrook is very happy about that. When I said "the cheques are going out the door", of course I was speaking figuratively. The reality is that on 14 February the Hon. Penny Sharpe asked me a question about the department's actions, which I took on notice. Under condition 58 of its exploration licence, Ridgelands was required to complete the exploration work program on 27 February 2018. On 27 March 2017, Ridgelands wrote to the department to request—no, that is not what I want to go through. We are not having a good start this afternoon. It has been a long week.... The $5 million has been paid into the community fund and it is being dispersed. A number of people have applied for grants and are receiving them. This is not a government fund. It is a fund that Ridgelands set up. The money is being dispersed. The council has a representative on it and the community is benefiting as a result. The Hon. ADAM SEARLE (14:33): I ask a supplementary question. Will the Minister elucidate the part of his answer when he explained the inadvertent approval and why the department was unaware of the condition that was implemented? The Hon. DON HARWIN (Minister for Resources, Minister for Energy and Utilities, and Minister for the Arts) (14:33): I refer the Hon. Adam Searle to my previous answer.

Stop wasting energy, resources on division talks, Osinbajo tells Nigerians
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Sunday advised Nigerians to stop wasting energies and resources on debate about division of the country. He said he was confident that the nation would remain united. Osinbajo spoke when he represented President Muhammadu Buhari at the 2017 Eid-el-Kabir Lunch held inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja. He said he was confident of Nigeria’s continued unity because he was convinced that God’s plan for the country was that it would be the pre-eminent black nation in the world. He said the country would show God’s investment in the black race through its culture, technology and commerce. The Vice-President said that was why, as of today, there must be a Nigerian among four or five black people, saying that is not a mean attainment. Osinbajo said, “That nation that God has in mind is a diverse nation; diverse in resources, in ideas and in opinions. The kind of nation that we have, where there is an argument about something everywhere; before you get tired of that lone argument, another one arises and before you finish with that one, there is yet another one. “This is the type of country that God has ordained; where we have diversity of opinions and ideas – people saying their own things here and there. “But God has also planned that this country will remain together, and that we will be a nation that is gifted just as we have the oil, gas, and the most arable land than most continents. “This is a country that has all of what other countries will travel and spend money to look for the sort of resources that we have. All of the tourism resources that we have, people will travel everywhere looking for them. “It is a nation of men and women so creative and prosperous that we will feed the entire continent and create opportunities for the world. All the different ethnic groups are important in that arrangement. On every ethnicity, incredible minds, brilliant and creative people doing all manner of things. “Our energies and resources should not be spent again on debate about division. Our manifest destiny is to be a great nation, not to be a nation where we are talking about division. “We must focus our time, energies and resources on being that great nation that God has called us to be. I think we have started building that country already.” Osinbajo described the noise across the country as being part of nation building. He said no woman delivers a baby without some noise and some pains. “What we are hearing today are the noise and the pains of that great nation that God is about to give birth to,” he said. Osinbajo also said the Nigerian elite must be ready to make sacrifices necessary for national development the same way Abraham was willing to offer his son, Isaac, as a sacrifice in order to fulfill his destiny and that of his people. He said the significance of ongoing celebration was the willingness of Abraham to make the great sacrifice of possibly the dearest thing to him. “The message today is that our nation’s elite, Muslims, Christians and all ethnic groups must recognise that we also must make sacrifices; the sacrifices that are necessary to attain the destiny that God has brought unto our people,” he said. Both Muslim and Christian leaders attended the lunch.

Save $300 Million - Consolidate Divisions of  Water Rights, Water Resources &  Drinking Water
The State of Utah spends $90,000 a day ($22 million a year) on water paperwork. The water paperwork costs are skyrocketing. Consolidating the Division of Water Rights, Division of Water Resources, and Division of Drinking Water plus some common sense will save the State $11 million a year. In the past 25 years, the State of Utah spent $400 million on water paperwork. In the next 25 years, the State will spend another $600 million. We can't drink that $1 Billion in water paperwork. Wet water is far better than water paperwork. Smaller and lighter water right regulation processes should replace big outdated and heavy processes. Water conservation must include conserving water management dollars through wiser water policies.

Argonne National Lab's George Crabtree on "Next Generation Energy Storage"
On October 14, 2016, George Crabtree, director of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research, delivered a Scott Institute Seminar titled, "Next Generation Energy Storage." Crabtree also holds the ranks of senior scientist, distinguished fellow and associate division director in the Materials Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory. He has won numerous awards for his research. Read his talk abstract: The high energy density and low cost of lithium-ion batteries have created a revolution in personal electronics through laptops, tablets, smart phones and wearables, permanently changing the way we interact with people and information. We are at the threshold of similar transformations in transportation to electric cars and in the electricity grid to renewable generation, smart grids and distributed energy resources. Many aspects of these transformations require new levels of energy storage performance and cost that are beyond the reach of Li-ion batteries. Next generation beyond Li-ion batteries and their potential to meet these performance and cost thresholds will be analyzed. This seminar was sponsored by the Scott Institute for Energy Innovation and CMU's Mechanical Engineering Department.

The Battle Raging In Nigeria Over Control Of Oil | VICE on HBO
Nigeria may sit atop one of the largest oil reserves in the world, but the majority of the Nigerian people have seen little benefit from the multibillion-dollar industry. The government and global energy companies have been exploiting the resource for years, bringing poverty, pollution, and violence to the Niger Delta. And now the local militias fighting for oil control have made conditions even worse. Caught in the conflict are Nigerian citizens involved in the illegal oil market simply for survival. Oil theft is rampant, and the booming black market has transnational oil and gas consultants concerned about the effects on global oil markets. The government isn't too happy about it either. “All the oil that is sold around here, the government calls illegally refined products,” local oil businessman Don Wizaro told VICE News. And when the Nigerian military raids illegal oil operations, they slash containers, releasing oil into waterways, contaminating what the main source of fishing, agriculture, and drinking water. As the government continues its assault on illegal refineries and barges carrying stolen oil, local militias are retaliating. And one of the most notorious militias is the Niger Delta Avengers. They attack pipelines and infrastructure, significantly affecting both the environment and the economy. VICE correspondent Gianna Toboni heads to the heart of Nigeria's oil production to witness firsthand the fight over the control of oil in the Niger Delta.

Can Renewable Energy Make American Electricity More Affordable, Reliable, and Abundant than Ever?
See more at http://www.eesi.org/052212economics The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) held a briefing that challenged widely held assumptions about renewable energy and the infrastructure needed to connect it to the grid. The Midwest's steady winds could, in theory, power the entire country, according to an analysis conducted in 2010 by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and AWS Truewind, a consultancy. So could solar energy in the Southwest. Moreover, the transmission investments needed to tap the enormous potential of American renewable resources can make the grid more efficient and reliable at the same time. And renewable energy is increasingly competitive in some power markets with traditional fuels like gas and coal. At this briefing, various perspectives regarding the overall economics, capacity and reliability of integrating renewable energy into the grid were presented. Speakers for this forum were: John Jimison, Energy Future Coalition, Introductory Remarks Robert Fagan and Ezra Hausman, Synapse Energy Economics, Inc., an economic consultancy focused on energy markets. Joe Gardner, Executive Director of Real-Time Operations, Midwest Independent System Operator (MISO), which controls the transmission system in 11 Midwest states and Manitoba, Canada. Fred Morse, Chairman, USP Division of SEIA and Senior Advisor, Abengoa Solar, a major developer of central-station solar power generation facilities. James J. Hoecker, Counsel and Advisor, WIRES (Working Group for Investment in Reliable and Economic Electric Systems), former Chairman, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The briefing coincided with the release of a new report, The Potential Rate Effects of Wind Energy and Transmission in the Midwest ISO Region, commissioned by the Energy Future Coalition and produced by Synapse Energy Economics, which concludes that adding more wind power to the Midwest's grid would place downward pressure on energy market prices and rates, even after factoring in the costs of the additional transmission needed to connect it. Traditional power plants face fuel prices that fluctuate dramatically over time and they must also address regulatory uncertainty and pollution control upgrades, whereas, for example, solar, wind, and geothermal power plants are not subject to such fuel price volatility. What mix of renewable resources and traditional resources is actually the most reliable and cost effective system to meet our energy needs and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions?

Mark Bergeron Director of the Division of Land Resources Regulation opposition to LD 1750
LD 1750 discussion at Maine Energy & Utilities Committee February 18, 2014 LD 1750 gives a blank check to foreign and out-of-state industrial wind companies to build thousands of huge turbine towers across the middle and top half of Maine with limited environmental review.This ominous bill, LD 1750, diminishes the state Department of Environmental Protection's ability to consider effects on many of Maine's most scenic vistas, lakes, ridges, mountains and ponds in approving wind energy projects. It forces DEP and other state agencies to limit environmental impact testimony to experts only, so that Maine residents faced with huge destructive energy developments in their backyards will have no input ! If you have two minutes to give to save Maine, please email or call your legislators and ask them to kill LD 1750. And if this hideous bill is passed by the Legislature, please email or call the governor and ask him to veto LD 1750.

Alpha Natural Resources - Running Right?
For the past decade Dickenson Russell Coal Company a subsidiary of Alpha Natural Resources has been dewatering the abandoned McClure 1 mine to make room for coal waste slurry injection from the McClure 1 Coal Preparation plant. This occurs at the former air return shaft located beside Highway 83 just 6 miles east of Clintwood, Virginia. The water is discharged untreated into the McClure River which flows into the Russell Fork , then the Big Sandy, Ohio, and Mississippi. According to Eric Greear who works for the Department of Mines Minerals and Energy's Division of Mined Land Reclamation, only acidity and metal tests are performed on the water before it is discharged into the river. When asked about chemical testing, he said tests for chemicals were not required. The McClure #1 mine was in operation from 1978 to 1995. Has no one thought of the thousands of gallons of used hydraulic oil and gears oils that leaked from the machinery over the mine's lifespan? There are also many other chemicals that are left behind in the mining process including adhesives, strong cleaning agents, and anti-freeze to name a few. How can it be legal and considered "Running Right" to pump stagnant polluted mine water straight into our streams? \Alpha Natural Resources....Running Right?

Allterra Solar | The Environment We Share
Allterra began as an environmental engineering firm that investigated and remediated dissolved contaminants in groundwater. In Allterra Environmental’s short history, it successfully investigated and closed 30 groundwater contamination cases in the SF Bay Region. In 2009, Allterra launched its solar division (Allterra Solar) to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy throughout the central coast. Allterra’s unique data-driven approach and unparalleled customer service have fueled the company’s success. Being green extends far beyond the color of our logo and deep into our business practices. In addition to the clean energy our clients’ systems produce every day, Allterra has taken many steps to mitigate environmental impacts of our daily business operations. Since March 2010, Allterrra has been a member of the Monterey Bay Area Green Business Program. The Monterey Bay Area Green Business Program and its many counterparts around the state were created to conserve resources, prevent pollution and minimize waste. The first step to becoming a green business was to conduct an energy audit to assess how much energy was being used and how we could conserve and use more green power. The audit showed, among other things, that switching to more efficient fluorescent lights would cut our usage and save money. We have also installed panels of LEDs to further illuminate individual workstations. Greening Business Waste prevention is a primary tenant of the Green Business Program, which is why Allterra implemented recycling and electronic waste collection at its facilities. Employees are encouraged to carpool and bike to work to cut down on emissions associated with transportation – a leading source of emissions in Santa Cruz County. We also provide reusable mugs as opposed to single use paper cups to limit office waste. Furthermore, our office remodels utilized all recycled wood, and the foyer display is full of water wise succulents and native plants.

The Nexus Approach: The Road to Water, Energy and Food Security in the Arab World?
The Climate Change and Environment in the Arab World Program at IFI held a presentation of an IFI research study and a panel discussion on The Nexus Approach: The Road to Water, Energy and Food Security in the Arab World? With Holger Hoff, Rabi Mohtar, Ralf Klingbeil, Nadim Farajalla The nexus approach is a cross-sectorial approach towards a practical planning of coherent policies that integrates the three basic resources of life, water, energy and food, to ensure better resources management and environmental sustainability. This approach has increasingly become a fundamental approach in facing the impacts of climate change and the conservation of these limited resources. This event highlighted the Water-Energy-Food Nexus in the Middle East and North Africa region, and the relevant policies and policy processes that may be adjusted to enable the nexus approach. The discussion was moderated towards identifying entry points for the Nexus approach in the policy processes in Lebanon and the region supported by examples from similar regions. Holger Hoff is senior research fellow at the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) in Sweden and at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in Germany. Rabi Mohtar is the Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Endowed Professor at Texas AM University, College Station, USA. Ralf Klingbeil is the Regional Advisor Environment and Water, Sustainable Development and Productivity Division (SDPD), United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (UN ESCWA).
