Bracketing my disagreement with the placement of some of the items—energy efficiency is a mature "technology"—this graph is ultimately a reformulation of the "valley of death" chart for the commercialization of technologies, which is a very real phenomenon.

The Electric Power Research Institute and the Gas Technology Institute are launching a five-year joint initiative to accelerate the development and demonstration of low-carbon energy technologies.

Good and useful report here. It covers the near-term impact of COVID-19 and then takes the long view of the role of gas technologies including hydrogen in the low-carbon transition.

We should be considering the role of low-carbon gaseous fuels as a category and as individual contributors. Biogenic gases, zero-carbon hydrogen, methanated hydrogen, and others can all contribute but each have unique economic and operational issues.

My hot take is that hydrogen is being rightly recognized for the unique role of gaseous fuels in our current and future energy mix. But the operational challenges, which are non-trivial and solvable, remain largely underappreciated.

as a working parent in the time of covid I'm confused who has both the time and inclination to read all these long features about how hard it is to be a working parent in the time of covid

Free COVID testing sites adding location in Southwest today and tomorrow, 10am-4pm. No appointment needed. The pop-up testing site will be on the lot north of the CVS on 4th St SW.

"A switch to heat pumps accompanied by the rapid decarbonization of the electric grid—the latter induced by a rising economy-wide tax on CO2—would slash CO2 emissions but likely increase heating bills relative to today."

"Here we show that, in most parts of the U.S., a switch from natural gas to electric heat pumps would raise household heating bills and increase damages from carbon dioxide (CO2) and other pollutants."

It's costs.

No doubt capital costs are hugely important, and bringing those down is vital. But much will depend on the cost of energy (gas or electric power), utilization rates, cost of CCUS for gas, available infrastructure, and other factors. My overall response I suppose is, "it depends."

Obviously, these will change over time, particularly if the costs of variable renewables (wind & solar) get very inexpensive.

The 2020 annual figures, of course, will show nowhere near the same level of decline as April. Still, April was😧
