Renewable Energy Update: Entering the Terawatt Age
This week Dr. Matt Wright spoke with Jack Gembitsky about the coming age of the Terawatt. 2022 was a record year for the installation of renewable energy, bringing global levels of renewable energy up to 3,372 Gigawatts. For reference the scale of energy looks like this: A Terawatt is equal to a million-million Watts – or two-hundred-million car batteries. A Terrawatt is a thousand times larger than a gigawatt, and one gigawatt can power about 750,000 homes.
