UK’s largest hydro scheme to double energy storage with £100m investment [Video]

SSE, one of the UK’s largest energy companies, is investing £100m in a hydro scheme that will double the UK’s ability to store energy for long periods. This will be the biggest hydro scheme in decades, and it’s set to transform the UK’s energy landscape. The scheme will create a vast reservoir that can store up to 3.5 gigawatt-hours of energy, enough to power 3.5 million homes for an entire day. The project is expected to generate around 2,500 jobs during construction and operation, and will provide a major boost to the UK’s renewable energy sector.

Biden admin drilling project contradicts global need to avert dangerous warming limit [Video]

Presidential Distinguished Professor and Director of the Penn Center for Science, Sustainability and the Media at the University of Pennsylvania and author of The New Climate War Michael Mann joins Andrea Mitchell to react to a climate report from the United Nations that issues a dire warning to countries to half carbon emissions by 2030 in order to prevent even more devastating long-term effects. The report says, Look, we didn’t make enough progress over the last few years, so we need even larger reductions now. We’ve got to reduce carbon emissions globally by about 60% by 2035 to prevent us from crossing that dangerous threshold, says Mann. Meanwhile, the Biden administration has recently approved a drilling project in Alaska that will deliver more dirty fossil fuels to the global market at a time when the International Energy Agency has been very clear: there can be no new fossil fuel infrastructure if we are to remain below that dangerous warming limit.
