Chile is planning to build a 15,000 km subsea cable for a cost of more than $2 billion to send solar energy to China This project would solve one of the biggest problems with solar energy, the fact that it is intermittent, by sending solar from Chile when it is nighttime in China China is eager to secure as much energy as possible, which makes the project very attractive despite its difficulties One of the biggest challenges standing in the way of achieving a 100% renewable energy transition is the fact that key sources of renewable power including wind and solar are variable – meaning that they don’t supply a steady flow of energy production. Instead, they are dependent on external factors such as weather, daylight hours, and seasons. This unpredictability poses unique challenges to the energy sector, and there are many different approaches to solving the problem – […]
