An energy revolution is coming – Editor

A recent article by Jeremy Berke in the Business Insider [1] has drawn attention to the following facts:

  1. The cost of producing electrical energy from solar radiation is rapidly falling: according to a new analysis it now costs about $US50 to produce one megawatt-hour of solar power.
  2. By contrast, electricity produced from coal costs $US102 per megawatt-hour.
  3. This recent change could be a sign that the world is on the verge of an energy revolution.

The good news is that battery and storage capabilities are improving.
