South Australia was fortunate enough to realize its goal for a fully renewable energy future when it managed to generate 99% of its energy capacity from renewable energy. This spectacle took place during the Christmas and New Year season from December 27th, 2020. Such an achievement got recognition from renewable energy expert Pierre Verlinden. Pierre Verlinden is the former vice president of South Australia’s national regulatory commission. History shows that he has vast experience in ensuring the efficiency and sustainability of renewables. Likewise, and also double as a chief Scientist at the Trina Solar plant in China. Pierre Verlinden posted the update on his LinkedIn feed that got fast liking. However, the post managed to gain a lot of recognition from the Clean Energy Social Club. Pierre Verlinden, however, moved from China to oversee operations in the South Australian-based McLaren Vale.
According to speculation Pierre Verlinden the project has the potential to eclipse the following year’s solar generation capacity maxing out at a potential 63.5% in 2021. Pierre Verlinden also repeats that he relates that the country expects to attain its goal of 100% renewable energy generation by 2030. Talking further on the subject, Pierre released a new range of secrets behind attaining 100% reliable energy generation. He states that understanding the concept requires adequate knowledge of electrical generation diversification. It also requires full utilization of a high-capacity storage solution used together with deep integration in the renewable energy network.
South Australia was fortunate enough it will be in a region that gains sufficient input from solar energy. This position allows the country to diversify into other sources trying to achieve full sustainability. Several reports show that solar energy is the leading provider of electrical producer for the region as experts noted that 35% power production increment from its launch two years ago. Outtakes from an increment in solar energy generation show that it is a substantial investment. However, records show that there were several instances when solar energy exceeded the storage capacity in the solar generation plants, causing multiple meltdowns when surplus exceeded demand.
Experts already have this figured out, showing that the company and the state are working together towards spreading the region’s solar generation facilities to reach greater levels. The union will also focus on developing a wide network in an effort to decentralize solar energy production in the region allowing for more general more high-capacity storage across a large number of locations.
