    Housekeeping Watch:

    It’s that doldrums time of year. Even though so far the market has failed to “go way in May” things are generally quiet this time of year in energy land. Please use the site. Participate. Ask questions. If I’m left to my own lack of creative devices the site becomes mechanical, I get bored, and a bored Z is a lazy Z. Thanks.

    Hi Z
    I still think that you should take a look at uranium
    It is up,over 30% in the last couple of months and with the virus several mines have closed exacerbating the shortfall
    In my opinion it is a double or so over the next couple of years with little downsides

    re 2 – very much on my to do list. Did you know were are over 40% renewables now?

    Yes renewables have a long way to go since excluding hydro they still represent less than 10% in kwhrs
    Renewables have a fundamental problem in that they are not «  callable » . with batteries they are Usefull fol frequency regulation first and then peak load lopping but as a base load they cannot hack it and all this talk of 100 % renewable is just that «  talk « . If you do the calculation for say 72 hrs when the sun doesn’t shine and the wind doesn’t blow the batteries needed are unbelievable in size and environmental footprint

    re 4 – they’re not baseload. We’re see a variety of storage options being examined from batteries to pumped hydro to hydrogen.
