And now Sand batteries as heat pumps?
Finnish researchers have installed the world's first fully working "sand battery" which can store green power for months at a time. This could solve the problem of year-round supply, a major issue for green energy - using low-grade sand - the device is charged up with heat made from cheap electricity from solar or wind. The sand stores the heat at around 500C, which can then warm homes in winter when energy is more expensivehttps://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-61996520

Australia can Transition part III - SunCable stage 3
Plans for the world's largest solar panel array have taken a step closer: SunCable, the solar energy company backed by Mike Cannon-Brookes and advocated by Prof Ross Garnaut has endorsement from Infrastructure Australia, for the enormous economic benefits it will create. It involves the Australia-Asia PowerLink (AAPowerLink), which will export solar power from the Australian outback to Singapore via a submarine transmission link.The endorsement ensures that the project can advance to third-stage, “investment-ready” status on Infrastructure Australia's priority list, opening the door for government fundinghttps://www.pv-magazine.com/2022/06/24/sun-cable-project-secures-support-of-infrastructure-australia/

Australia can Transition part II & Boards will change
Governments and Boards will be rolled if they are not acting on Climate - that's the conclusion from the recent election and the collapse this week of the AGL Board (Australia's biggest polluter).It was not only Mike Cannon-Brookes but several major funds that forced AGL to backtrack on the de-merger - that was aiming to quarantine the company from necessary emission reductions. Many other funds and activist shareholders are placing pressure on industrial polluters to also address Paris CoP21 targets (set in 2015).
