International Energy Agency’s First Clean Energy Transitions Summit, 7/9/2020

By posting this to my blog, I retain links and thoughts from my study, and share them.

Forty Ministers in an online conference viewed by one million, and I was unaware. From the IEA news feed:

On July 9, 40 Ministers from dozens of countries took part in the International Energy Agency’s first Clean Energy Transitions Summit, discussing how to bring about a sustainable and resilient recovery from the Covid-19 crisis and achieve a definitive peak in global carbon emissions. 

Involves the concentrated solar decried as awful failure in Planet of the Humans. The process takes CO2 out of the atmosphere.

Heat pipes. Colossal buildings.

- -  non-carbon fuels such as hydrogen and ammonia offer new opportunities.

- - a heat battery that provides buildings with affordable and effective heat storage.
- -  storage modules contain a heat-storing salt which can be dried in the summer via the solar thermal system, with the heat collected stored loss-free until winter.

- - hydrogen use in national decarbonisation plans
In Denmark.

- - consists of using a solid material, such as rocks, to increase storage capacity.

Nothing here for me.  More hot air? Did investor-viewers buy anything?
