Oui c’est mon avis. Pour faire du méthanol, il nous faut aussi de l’hydrogène. Par contre, on perd quand même dans le rendement lors de la production.

L’effet est bizarre: on devrait se réjouir si on est détracteur du nucléaire mais on peut pas s’empêcher de se poser des questions quand même.

Il y a sans doute un degré de modération à avoir. C’était difficile d’en parler en si peu de temps mais sait très bien que l’hydrogène comme moyen de stockage et les e-fuels joueront un rôle important.

Je pense qu’un avis modéré est de rigueur pour ces questions complexes...même si je n’ai pas encore trouvé la manière ou le talent pour l’exprimer correctement dans les médias.

Today, is launching its 2019 Statistical Energy Review . We think the data is great and could be even better highlighted. Here are two complementary graphs to the one that is famously present in all reports. Better?

2️⃣Compare the growth of each energy source to the total energy consumption. This reveals a lot: coal and oil increased in 2017, but at a lower rate than the total energy consumption. Renewables' growth clearly beats any other energy source.

💡What would be an alternative?💡 1️⃣Don't stack but show instead the evolution of each energy source. A simple line graph (with a high data-ink ratio) serves. Now it's clear: the crisis didn't affect renewables.

▪️ Specific events for a certain energy source cannot be distinguished. Look at the decrease due to the financial crisis in 2009. Can you see whether renewables were affected?

▪️ A colourblind person would not be able to distinguish the colours and therefore read the legend. ▪️ It's very complicated to 'isolate' the evolution of one particular energy source. For example, would you be able to say by how much coal increased?

Other institutions, like the International Energy Agency (IEA), often show energy trends with very similar displays. However, there are several problems with this graph, namely:

is launching today its 2019 Statistical Energy Review Looking at the 2018 edition, we've realised they used a very 'typical' display to depict World energy consumption by source: the stacked area graph.

Which gives us an opportunity to manage complexity in graphs ;-)

In our example, the key messages are directly clearly seen: The Greens (Ecolo + Groen), the Vlaams Belang extremists and the far-left PTB*PVDA have invaded the Parliament while the N-VA looses its privileged position.
