ESS3A - Natural Resources
 
05:40
In this video Paul Andersen explains how the resources required for survival come from the Earth. The resources are not evenly distributed on the planet and neither are the humans. According to the NGSS we need to limit the use of nonrenewable resources (like oil and coal) through regulations and increase the use of renewable resources. A teaching progression K-12 is also included.

IEA Renewable Energy Market Report 2017
 
01:17:57
October 13, 2017 The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted a presentation and discussion of the IEA Renewable Energy Market Report 2017 with Heymi Bahar, Renewable Energy Markets Analyst at the International Energy Agency and Project Manager of the Report. Inaugural Fellow David Sandalow moderated the discussion following Mr. Bahar's presentation. This report examines how renewable energy in the power, heat and transportation sectors will evolve over 2017-22 in the context of global decarbonization goals. It explores recent renewable deployment, policy, market and cost trends across different regions and countries, particularly as costs for wind and solar PV continue to fall. This year’s report includes additional analysis on renewable consumption of electricity vehicles and off-grid solar PV segment. The Renewable Energy Market Report 2017 also assesses the potential impact of enhanced policy action for the electricity and transport sector under its accelerated case, which would position the world firmly on a path to a more sustainable and secure energy system.

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?

Grid Integration of Intermittent Renewable Energy Resources
 
51:39
Speaker/Performer: Solomon Abebe Asfaw, UC Berkeley Sponsors: CITRIS (Ctr for Info Technology Research in the Interest of Society), i4Energy Center Energy storages are expected to play a significant role in increasing grid penetration of intermittent renewable resources. In this presentation, I will show that -, based on various hourly simulations,- storage design and dispatch plays a significant role in our ability to transition to a grid that can accommodate very large intermittent renewable systems. First, I will describe the result of an hourly simulation performed for an island Israeli grid. This will be followed by a brief discussion of the case of an interconnected grid using an hourly load data and the corresponding simulated wind and solar output for the state of California. This study shows that to design such a grid, we will be required to consider a new operational policy. In this talk, I will also discuss other complications related to designing such a power grid. ---------- Solomon Abebe Asfaw received his undergraduate degree in Physics from Bahir Dar University, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia; an M.Sc. degree in Physics from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway; a second M.Sc. and PhD degree specializing in energy system modeling from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Sede Boqer, Israel. He was a recipient of the 2010 wolf prize for outstanding PhD students in Israeli Universities. He is currently a postdoctoral fellow at University of California - Berkeley. Solomon's research interests include: very high grid penetration of intermittent renewable energy resources (Solar and Wind) with and without energy storage; the role of storage design and dispatch; long term planning of power grid, etc. His findings have been published in peer-reviewed journals, as book chapters, and conference proceedings.

Nuclear Energy Explained: Risk or Opportunity
 
04:06
Please Read Below For More Information Anything with the word nuclear next to it usually comes with a fair bit of misunderstanding. Hopefully this video demystifies the process of how nuclear fuels are turned into electricity and how we can use them in combination with renewables in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the effects on the climate that come with high levels of them. Of course, there are many things that have been left out this video as nuclear energy, just as with any other source, has many different factors that need to be taken into account when making decisions. In order to fully understand the situation and make decisions, I highly recommend that you do some research of your own on the topic, rather than simply base your opinion on a four-minute YouTube video. It should also be noted that this video has been made from the perspective of the United States in general. Every area on Earth has different natural resources and environments that determine what works best there.

What is ENERGY INTENSITY? What does ENERGY INTENSITY mean? ENERGY INTENSITY meaning & explanation

What is ENERGY INTENSITY? What does ENERGY INTENSITY mean? ENERGY INTENSITY meaning - ENERGY INTENSITY definition - ENERGY INTENSITY explanation. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ?sub_confirmation=1 Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Energy intensity is a measure of the energy efficiency of a nation's economy. It is calculated as units of energy per unit of GDP. High energy intensities indicate a high price or cost of converting energy into GDP. Low energy intensity indicates a lower price or cost of converting energy into GDP. High energy intensity means high industrial output as portion of GDP. Countries with low energy intensity signifies labor intensive economy. Many factors influence an economy's overall energy intensity. It may reflect requirements for general standards of living and weather conditions in an economy. It is not atypical for particularly cold or hot climates to require greater energy consumption in homes and workplaces for heating (furnaces, or electric heaters) or cooling (air conditioning, fans, refrigeration). A country with an advanced standard of living is more likely to have a wider prevalence of such consumer goods and thereby be impacted in its energy intensity than one with a lower standard of living. Energy efficiency of appliances and buildings (through use of building materials and methods, such as insulation), fuel economy of vehicles, vehicular distances travelled (frequency of travel or larger geographical distances), better methods and patterns of transportation, capacities and utility of mass transit, energy rationing or conservation efforts, 'off-grid' energy sources, and stochastic economic shocks such as disruptions of energy due to natural disasters, wars, massive power outages, unexpected new sources, efficient uses of energy or energy subsidies may all impact overall energy intensity of a nation. Thus, a nation that is highly economically productive, with mild and temperate weather, demographic patterns of work places close to home, and uses fuel efficient vehicles, supports carpools, mass transportation or walks or rides bicycles, will have a far lower energy intensity than a nation that is economically unproductive, with extreme weather conditions requiring heating or cooling, long commutes, and extensive use of generally poor fuel economy vehicles. Paradoxically, some activities that may seem to promote high energy intensities, such as long commutes, could in fact result in lower energy intensities by causing a disproportionate increase in GDP output. Figures of energy consumption used in statistics are energy sources marketed through major energy industries. Therefore, some small scale but frequent consumption of energy source like firewood, charcoal peat, water wheel, wind mill are not in its count. In countries, which does not have such developed energy industries or people with highly self energy efficient life style, report smaller energy consumption figures. Examples An inverse way of looking at the issue would be an 'economic energy efficiency,' or economic rate of return on its consumption of energy: how many economic units of GDP are produced by the consumption of units of energy. Referring to the above examples, 1 million Btus consumed with an energy intensity of 8,553 produced $116.92 of GDP for the US. Whereas, each million Btus of energy consumed in Bangladesh with an Energy Intensity of 2,113 produced $473 of GDP, or over four times the effective US rate. Russia, on the other hand, produced only $48.37 GDP per 1 million Btu based on an energy intensity of 20,676. Thus, Bangladesh could be perceived as having nearly ten times the economic energy efficiency of Russia. It is not directly causal that a high GDP per capita must have lower economic energy efficiencies. See the accompanying chart for examples based on the top 40 national economies. Energy intensity can be used as a comparative measure between countries; whereas the change in energy consumption required to raise GDP in a specific country over time is described as its energy elasticity.

Using Probability of Exceedance to Compare Resource Risk, March 29, 2017
 
28:26
Among the many risks surrounding long-term investments in power plants, resource risk is one of the most difficult to mitigate, and is also a risk that manifests differently for renewable and natural gas-fired generation. For renewable generators like wind and solar projects, resource risk is primarily a quantity risk—i.e., the risk that annual energy production will be less than expected due to a weaker-than-expected wind or solar resource. Conversely, for gas-fired combined cycle generators, resource risk is primarily a price risk—i.e., the risk that natural gas will cost more than expected.
