Making clean energy isn’t enough: We also have to move it. Subscribe and turn on notifications (🔔) so you don't miss any videos: 🤍goo.gl/0bsAjO In the near future, the energy made in the US is going to be much greener. The country’s current goal is for solar plants alone to make nearly half of US electricity by 2050. But we can’t just build solar plants where coal and gas plants used to be. They have to be built where it's… sunny. And wind turbines have to be built where it’s windy. The problem is, that’s not always where the people who need the power are. The distance from energy source to energy need is about to get a lot bigger. And the US is going to need more high-voltage transmission lines. A lot more. As soon as possible. While solar plants can be built relatively fast, high-voltage transmission projects can take up to 10 years. So experts say we need to start proactively building them, right now. This is the second of five videos we're releasing on climate coverage this week. You can watch the first video on extreme heat 🌡 and what cities are doing to combat that here: 🤍youtu.be/ZQ6fSHr5TJg And the third video on prescribed burns 🔥 for forests here: 🤍youtu.be/0o6ezu_h6iE Sources and further reading: Much of the map data in the piece comes from the Net-Zero America study out of Princeton University: 🤍netzeroamerica.princeton.edu/ This map from the US Energy Information Association is a good way to see what power plants and high-voltage power lines are near you (if you’re in the US): 🤍🤍eia.gov/state/maps.php Vermont Public Radio reported on the energy bottleneck we talk about in the very beginning of the video: 🤍🤍vpr.org/vpr-news/2020-12-15/transmission-grid-bottlenecks-in-northeast-kingdom-stall-solar-development And here’s more about that denied power plant from local Vermont TV station WCAX: 🤍🤍wcax.com/content/news/Regulators-deny-Derby-solar-project-504867011.html This other great study is what calculated how much renewable energy potential there is in just those 15 middle states: 🤍acore.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Corporate-Demand-and-Transmission-January-2018.pdf More about the 2018 Camp Fire in California and the investigation that determined it was started by electrical transmission lines: 🤍🤍cnbc.com/2019/05/15/officials-camp-fire-deadliest-in-california-history-was-caused-by-pge-electrical-transmission-lines.html And if you want to get really into the details of how these lines work, I found the Edison Tech Center really helpful: 🤍edisontechcenter.org/wires.html Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

That's why the US must be ready for clean energy.

VOX: ~'Arizona could send power to Chicago'~
ME: I think that goes across two grids. won't work. not possible.
VOX: "A new interconnected grid"
ME: "oh, duh, kind of the whole point they are explaining

The USA should look at the UK. The UK's model of transition is incredibly rapid with a well thought through market model.

With fusion power, we won't need to build any of these transmission lines, or build millions of batteries which need to be replaced all the time and have a severe environmental and political cost (the minerals are owned almost entirely by the world's dictatorships like Russia).

Joe Biden isn't doing anything, it's people in our offices are in charge, he has everything on autopilot. We should get free power, tax free . That's what I think .

So California is putting diesel generators that are portable all over California to produce electricity ! How is diesel a bad in vehicles? I guess that money is more important than people !

If we used Nuclear and Non-intermittent renewables instead of PV solar and Wind we would not have this problem during decarbonization.

Everyone that heats their house with electricity please raise your hand.
Why not? Because electricity is more than 3 times as expensive than natural gas.

Why isn't there any discussion about shifting more to modular nuclear electrical production? This would supply energy that is way more reliable and could be placed closer to where the power is actually needed requiring lower transmission upgrades.

No es asi so wsta listo. Lo que Pasa es que no tienen materia prima. Ademas que ellos apuestan a las energies limpias..pero se necesita aun de Los fosiles.foibles.. para aceites.. y combustibles que se consumer en las plantas..donde hay demasiados Motorres para poder trabajar ybpara ellos se necesita elbperroleo ybsus derivados.. nos quieren ver la cara.. mejor hablemos de todo el mundo..y que se Hagan Los Fuentes libres de contaminantes. Ahh pero no solo usa.. pero les faltan wl.rwcurso..

As usual with the goverment, this video aged like milk. Government mandates 100% electric vehicles sales with zero infrastructure plan about 9 months after this vid airs. Somebody needs to take the wheel away from our government, they are drunk.

The democrats are going all out on green energy and electric cars. but yeah, where is all the power going to come from? We are going to end up in an energy crisis if they don't figure out how they are going to charge all those cars that are now using gasoline. Imagine black outs because too many people are charging their cars at one time.
