Germany's Transition From Coal to Renewable Energy Offers Lessons for the Rest of the World 14.8.2017 Truthout.com
Seventy-seven-year-old Heinz Spahn -- whose blue eyes are both twinkling and stern -- vividly recalls his younger days. The Zollverein coal mine, where he worked in the area of Essen, Germany, was so clogged with coal dust, he remembers, that people would stir up a black cloud whenever they moved. "It was no pony farm," he says -- using the sardonic German phrase to describe the harsh conditions: The roar of machines was at a constant 110 decibels, and the men were nicknamed waschbar, or "raccoons," for the black smudges that permanently adorned their faces.  Today, the scene at  Zollverein  is very different. Inside the coal washery where Spahn once worked -- the largest building in the Zollverein mining complex -- the air is clean, and its up to 8,000 miners have been replaced by one-and-a-half million tourists annually. The whole complex is now a UNESCO world heritage site: Spahn, who worked here as a fusion welder until the mine shut down on December 23, 1986, is employed as a guide to teach tourists ...

Nest thermostats to save power during Aug. 21 eclipse 12.8.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
California has grown so dependent on solar power that state officials have called on residents to conserve electricity during this month’s eclipse. Nest — a subsidiary of Google’s parent company, Alphabet — is asking its customers nationwide to join what it calls the “solar eclipse rush hour,” an effort to save energy as the eclipse darkens skies across the United States. Nest already has a similar, voluntary program for saving electricity during periods of high electricity demand, such as heat waves. California, which has installed far more solar power plants and rooftop arrays than any other state, is expected to see the biggest impact. Managers of the state’s power grid predict the eclipse, which begins just after 9 a.m. on the West Coast, will cut the output from the state’s large solar facilities by nearly two-thirds before the sunlight starts to strengthen again. Not only will utilities have to make up for the lost output, they’ll also have to supply more electricity to houses that have ...
