Environmental activist to promote BYD’s new energy vehicles in China as way of mitigating climate change.
Fossil fuel companies are not the only actors in the energy Industry suffering due to the raise of renewable energy. The volatility of sources such as wind or solar are representing a growing challenge for the electricity grid. This is one of the main reasons why even the most ambitious environmental plans tend to aim to achieve very moderate shares of renewable energy of around 30%.
Chinese renewable energy technology company BYD today unveiled its SkyRail electric monorail at the biannual C40 Mayors Summit in Mexico City before 500 guests.

BYD SkyRail is part of the company’s urban transportation solution, which aims to address air pollution and traffic congestion.
In response to President-elect Trump argument for the rebirth of ´clean´ coal I want to show why market forces will reject it. It is generally believed that fossil fuels contain a lot of energy, but did you know that just in the power plant they need to go through 5 processes to convert the fuel into usable electricity? A big amount of energy is lost in each one of these processes and in the transmission to the cities making the output energy just around 30% of the input. Furthermore, power plants require secondary processes such as Ash disposal, pumping cooling water, maintenance, cleaning, etc.
I’m gladly surprised by the interest received for Part 2 of my ´Energy Challenges’ article. Unfortunately, there is too much interesting information so the article has ended up being too long. For your convenience, I´ve split in three subparts. Same as in part 1 (LINK), I will try to offer the conceptual solutions to each of the challenges and my plan is to publish further posts on real cases. In saying so, please feel free to suggest projects that you know of or questions regarding my proposed solutions.

Like many things in our life we tend to forget about energy until it hits our wallets or our hearts. For most of us our relationship with electricity is limited to two interfaces, the light switch and the electricity bill. However, electricity grids around the world are managing a very complex system that currently faces some key challenges that are hindering economic development and widespread adoption of renewable energy.
Last Friday SREnergy Managing Director was invited to speak to a group of last year students at the Tecnun-University of Navarra School of Engineering in San Sebastian.
