Smart Energy Systems: 100% Renewable Energy at a National Level (Full Version)
Denmark has decided to become independent from fossil fuels. For the sake of the climate, the economy, and in order to ensure security of energy supply. This film shows how this will happen based on research conducted at Aalborg University (www.smartenergysystems.eu).
At present wind and solar energy already delivers a good share of Denmark's energy, but renewable energy is a major challenge for an energy system that is built upon fossil fuels. Energy production from wind and solar fluctuates - it fluctuates as the wind blows. So what renewables are reliable when there is no sun or wind energy available?
Another challenge is the transport sector. How do we create an energy system of renewable energy, where also cars, ships and planes can operate on fossil-free energy? A great example of an energy system that will ensure Denmark a 100% renewable energy system is called: Smart Energy Systems - a coherent, fossil-free energy system that will create lots of new jobs and green energy for the Danes, both in terms of electricity, heat and transport.

For all those years since from the time off the rennasons period to this day white people coming up with ideas to change the world to benefit them alone and affect the rest of the world

Why do these developed nations promote renewables only in their countries, the air knows no nationalities, it moves everywhere, why aren't they doing enough to help and promote in all developing countries too? Is it really smart to think only their country is the planet.

To paraphrase the guys that debunked Mark Jacobson's highly impractical 100% renewable plan,.. 'just build Molten Salt Reactors instead, and break out the nachos and beer once you're done',.. ..no need to worry about whether your system will be adequate in any given month or year.

Gas has so much potential into the green new future!! it can transform Africa and so much more... for clean production and manufacturing...
Sven Frontin-Rollet
we will need gas for the next 50 years... we will need oil for the next 10 years
Sven Frontin-Rollet
europe must share and create opportunities for Africa!!
Sven Frontin-Rollet
Invest in our African countries... investment will be huge and has so much potential to try out new ideas
Sven Frontin-Rollet
Africa has SOO much potential to produce food for the world!!
Sven Frontin-Rollet
yeah we can do cow food production in middle africa...
Sven Frontin-Rollet
think more than just Denmark... these investments can be done in Africa
Sven Frontin-Rollet
desalination plants from sea water or from sewage... under ground water pumping
Sven Frontin-Rollet
invest in rare earth mines!!
Sven Frontin-Rollet
Batteries... add batteries to the system... Telsa battery grid is amazing!
Sven Frontin-Rollet
Denmark should be using LNP gas ... there are so many different ways to generate electricity from natural gas... this allows for the crops to be used to feed people .. and also grow for Pharmacia companies

A bit of a heads up info for everyone or some ammo for your gun so to speak - Where I work we just installed $900Ks worth of solar panels. I worked closely with the project manager. I asked him how they work out how many panels and how to space them to achieve the required output. He answered that there is a world industry wide/universal set of calculations. So we worked out how many panels and how much area would be required to replace a standard 4 x 2000 megawatt generator power station. The answer is 20 million panels which will need 14,800+ square acres of land or wildlife habitat or farmland ( The aquisition of farmland which is currently happening in North Victoria and Southern NSW in Australia. Places like Corowa or Jindera for example). As for those bloody hideous windfarms, 24 were recently installed in a forest in Germany (yep thats right, a forest). 28,000 acres of trees were mowed down. When these things come to the end of their 10 year lives they are so incredibly expensive to pull down they leave them there instead. Oh dear what to do? Oh ok I know lets bulldoze more trees/farmland/wildlife habitat. About those solar panels, the VAST majority are made in China. If you buy the Tier 1 panels they may often last their 10 years of life. If you buy the Tier 2 and 3 you can expect around 2 years. However if you are smart you'll purchase the 10 year warranty. But wait - the chinese government which owns most of the companies making them are refusing to honour the warranties. Theres one minor (minor?) problem with the old solar panels - there are literally hundreds of thousands of them that they simply dont know how to dispose of. On another note - a question or two for the Extinction Rebellion people. If you're so concerned about animals being killed, why do we NEVER EVER see you lot protesting outside an halal slaughterhouse? AND..... whats your solution to introduced species like foxes and ESPECIALLY, cats killing of our native animals? Hey kids if you really care about the planet - protest on a weekend or holiday.

What happens when all of these wind turbines take all of the energy out of the wind?????

Only if you release the methane into the atmosphere, they are proposing to burn it. This will produce CO2, but at it will be from biomass it will be carbon neutral overall

This plan is completely missing the cleanest and safest form of energy available, molten salt reactors. Low pressure thorium reactors are the cleanest and easiest way to transform our energy grid to CO2 free system. The system proposed here is far more hazardous to the environment and far too complicated to be maintained and run efficiently. It will increase the cost of the energy three fold which will cripple the economies it is tried in. Just look at Germany and California. They have the highest cost for energy and the lowest reliability. We need to wake up and focus on real solutions not these system being sold to us by those who wish to steal our wealth.

No, renewable energy systems are actually a good thing. The NWO people preach clean energy, but at the same time do everything they can to drag out the actual implementation of it, to create the pretext for carbon tax and maintain economic control via the oil cartel.

Give me a break. Green gas? Anything that is burned produces CO2. I don't have a problem with that. In the 80s and 90s the green lobby pushed to have everyone switch to cleaner Natural Gas. Now California yes Banning Natural Gas. The green lobby will never give up. No matter what it cost. Most of the cost burden is put on the lower-income and middle-class. As soon as you get this system up and running, you will be informed that it's not good enough. You make a great presentation and I hope you can fool enough investors.

Sadly the usefulness of wind, solar and biogas are exaggerated; the negative impact on the climate and hidden costs of subsidies, battery storage and traditional generation backup are not reported. Similarly, the fact that the climate record is misrepresented with data doctoring and the CO2 and watervapor radiative forcing badly represented in climate models meaning they present catastrophic changes related to increasing CO2 when in truth it makes no detectable difference... Many parts of the globe are cooling, have less extreme weather and a better climate than 100 years ago... The renewable revolution is seeing energy costs rise dramatically. Grid reliability is declining drastically in many countries and all because of a great lie. The human cost of this great lie will be large.

🤔🤔🤔 vậy mà cũng lấy bằng vật lý, ok. Tui sẽ cho bạn biết thế nào là vật lý . Năng lượng mà những cối xoay gió này nhận được là tổng diện tích của những cánh quạt tiếp nhận ok. Vậy chúng ta xét ở cùng 1vận tốc với 1 đơn vị diện tích là 1 mét vuông ok, rồi so sánh động năng giữa nước và không khí chuyển động cùng 1 vận tốc ok. Công thức tính năng lượng của động năng là M.V.V/2 ok. Vận tốc bằng nhau ta loại bỏ giờ chỉ còn khối lượng riêng giữa nước và không khí xét cùng 1 đơn vị thể tích thì 1 mét khối nước là 1000 kg còn 1 mét khối không khí chưa được 1kg. Vậy là mức năng lượng khai thác của nước nó hơn 1000 lần không khí . Vậy theo bạn có nên bán ve chai những cái cối xoay gió này không. Trong khí đó số tiền bỏ ra xây dựng 1 cái cối xay gió nó gấp mấy lần so với nước. Bán ve chai mấy cái cối này đi lạc hậu quá rồi🤔🤔🤔

Biomass energy can be created from HEMP, yes it is a tree that takes in co2 and gives out oxygen. Can be distilled for clean gas with no benzene, and no toxic pollution, can grow without fertilizer and without depleting soil.

This is what happens when a country doesn't have fascists holding them back, like we do with conservatives in the US: progress. Good things come from voting Blue. Nothing good comes from voting red.

apart from the bombing economy, lowest unemployment and america being the global political power again. also Definition of fascism 1 political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition. just a couple of things with fascism the definition states "often puts race above the individual" sounds more like the modern democrat party or political left world wide "social regimentation" almost every major conservative is rather libertarian which is the opposite of social regimentation "the fascists of the future will come under the umbrella of anti fascists" Winston Churchill
JAMES! Since the 70's
Methanol is a good fuel to transition to electric vehicles, and a clean burning fuel for range extenders and hybrids also, for aeroplanes and boats as well, it has the least carbon of any hydrocarbon fuel, and has a good amount of hydrogen being energy dense over pure hydrogen gas, using biomass to get methanol. Pulls carbon from the atmosphere, putting it in ground, a fast growing plant, like bamboo would make a good fuel crop, plus the nearly same process can take the plastic floating in the ocean, and make fuel from it, helping save lots of animals even the human ones, it is almost impossible to get away from plastic, it is in everything.. Its in water, fish, dirt, even us probably!! Making fuel from it is a good way to be rid of it!!!
