Get Ready For 1.5 cent Renewable Electricity, Steven Chu Says, Which Could Unleash Hydrogen Economy


Obomba's "energy czar" Steven Chu thought it would be a good idea to cut funding for hydrogen in 2009

Get Ready For 1.5¢ Renewable Electricity, Steven Chu Says, Which Could Unleash Hydrogen Economy

FORBES | Jeff McMahon | 4.2.2019

Former Energy Sec. Steven Chu told a roomful of scientists in Chicago they should think now what they could do with renewable electricity that costs only 1.5¢ per kilowatt hour.

And, he suggested, those thoughts should include hydrogen.

"The cost of renewable energy at the best sites is 2¢ per kilowatt hour. And that is going to widen," Chu said at the University of Chicago in March. "I’m an advisor to Royal Dutch Shell. They think within a couple decades the very best sites will go to 1.5¢ per kilowatt hour cost of electricity.

"Okay what do you want to think about, knowing that this will likely happen? Which is a good way to position yourself as a graduate student and a post-doc and a researcher. What research do I want to do, anticipating this will happen? Don’t wait for it to happen."

Chu won the 1997 Nobel Prize in Physics, led the Energy Dept. for the first Obama term, and recently became president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His lunchtime lecture at Chicago's Knapp Center for Biological Discovery was so popular that the auditorium's 125 seats were full, and students and scientists crowded in the aisles, peering around walls, or listening from behind them. More were turned away...more at this link

2. ''They think within a couple decades the very best sites will go to 1.5 per kilowatt hour...

...cost of electricity."

It's telling when posters resort to lying in their OP titles..."0. Get Ready For 1.5 cent Renewable Electricity, Steven Chu Says, Which Could Unleash Hydrogen Economy"...instead of being honest about what he really said...that such price claims are projected many decades away from now....and anyone with any economic history sense knows that such prices will never happen because of this reality called inflation.

3. I didn't write that title Einstein

Click the link and you'll find that FORBES WROTE THE TITLE

and just for your information, Einstein, here are the latest low price solar records.

Wait, why would I do your searching for you.

You can find them yourself.

search "solar energy cost per kwh"

You'll find that in Chile and Dubai the solar kWh cost is less than 3 cents per kWh RIGHT NOW!!!!!

Do not accuse me of lying again. Capice?

4. Cool claims, though the ''solar kWh cost'' touted are meaningless here in the US................

5. Ah yes, I remember Stevie

“Somehow,” Chu said, “we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”

Chu's Europe gas quote haunts W.H.
President Barack Obama’s Energy secretary unwittingly created a durable GOP talking point in September 2008 when he talked to The Wall Street Journal about the benefits of having gasoline prices rise over 15 years to encourage energy efficiency.
.
“Somehow,” Chu said, “we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”

Chu, a Nobel-winning physicist and director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, was not yet a member of the not-yet-in-existence Obama administration. But Republican politicians and conservative pundits have seized on his words as evidence that the White House is deliberately driving gasoline prices higher — ensuring that Chu’s remarks are the energy policy sound bite that will not die.

Newt Gingrich was the latest to jump on the bandwagon, telling CBS’s “This Morning” on Tuesday that Obama’s “outrageously anti-American” energy policy is aimed at increasing the price at the pump.

“Chu, his Energy secretary, said in 2008 he wanted gasoline prices to get to the European level, which is $9 or $10 a gallon,” Gingrich said.

A column Tuesday on Andrew Breitbart’s website Big Government also dredged up the 2008 quote, sardonically observing that “Mr. Chu’s energy plans appear to be working.”

Similar themes came last week from Investors Business Daily, which cited Chu’s remarks as evidence that Obama is “secretly cheering” for price spikes, and from Denver Post columnist Vincent Carroll, who accused Obama and Chu of pursuing a “castor oil theory” of economic growth.

The popularity of Chu’s now-infamous quotation tends to track the rise and fall of gas prices: It enjoyed a huge surge of attention last spring and summer before largely vanishing from view in the fall, leading up to this month’s renaissance, according to the LexisNexis database.

Never mind that some energy experts say Chu had it exactly right, and that higher fuel prices would encourage consumers to buy more efficient vehicles, discourage suburban sprawl, make renewables more competitive and reduce U.S. reliance on imported oil. Not even Chu’s department is making that argument these days.
