Risk Assessment for a National Renewable Energy Target Part II: Employing the Model

TLDR
Recommendations are made for further research to improve the model for energy enterprise forecasting in an era of heightened support for further RES deployment.

The Current World Energy Situation and Suggested Future Energy Scenarios to Meet the Energy Challenges by 2050 in the UK

TLDR
An overview of the current world energy situation along with three energy scenarios for the UK to achieve the official announced targets by 2050 and looking for liquid metal battery advantages to secure the authors' future energy needs is given.

Massive Electricity Storage for a Developed Economy of Ten Billion People

TLDR
This review argues that the principal contenders for the storage of electricity in bulk are: 1) electrochemical storage in flow batteries; 2) chemical storage in agents; 3) compressed air energy storage; and 4) underground pumped hydro.

Risk Assessment for a National Renewable Energy Target Part I: Developing the Model

TLDR
A quantitative risk model is proposed to estimate the probability of meeting a national RES generation target and the model's assumptions and sensitivity analysis are described, concluding by summarizing the steps to complete the case study.
