Response to “A critique of Jacobson and Delucchi's proposals for a world renewable energy supply” by Ted Trainer

Response to “A critique of Jacobson and Delucchi's proposals for a world renewable energy supply” by Ted Trainer Ted Trainer's “A critique of Jacobson and Delucchi's proposals for a world renewable energy supply” (hereafter T11), directed at our two Energy Policy articles “Providing all global energy with wind, water, and solar power, Part I: Technologies, energy resources, quantities and areas of infrastructure, and materials” (hereafter JD11) and “Providing all global energy with wind, water, and solar power, Part II: Reliability, system and transmission costs, and policies” (hereafter DJ11), makes two main points: (1) that JD11 and DJ11 do “not deal effectively with the problems set by the variability of renewable energy sources,” and</P>(2) that the JD11/DJ11 “analysis of investment costs is inadequate.”</P>Neither of these criticisms is valid. We show here that T11's first main point is based on a misrepresentation of what is stated and referenced in DJ11, and that his second main point is based on mistakes and unreasonable assumptions. As a result, T11's critique does not affect our original analyses or our conclusion that it is technically, economically, and environmentally feasible to provide all global energy with wind, water, and solar power.</P>We organize our response around T11's two main criticisms (variability and investment costs) and under each main criticism by T11's topic headings.</P>1 <h5>Variability</h5> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Energy Policy Elsevier
