As the music builds into a reverberating texture of vocals and chords, the sombre lighting brightens, minimally, and the movement expands into a bolder terrain of splayed plies, skittering footwork, recklessly cantilevered curves.

Staged cyber attack reveals vulnerability in power grid
In future, other options for managing intermittency may become cheaper. This will decrease the cost of adding renewables to the grid and allow the share of renewables to grow. Connecting grids over large geographical areas allows renewable power from a variety of climates to be combined, reducing overall variability and sharing out 'backup' fossil fuel power stations more widely. Storing electricity tends to be expensive, but innovation in storage technologies could make electrical backup systems cheaper. Finally, changes in consumer behaviour can help balance renewable electricity supply and demand. For example, the introduction of 'smart' meters will allow prices to be changed across the day to encourage people to shift consumption towards times of abundant supply. Householders in the UK have already been found to reduce their overall power use and shift towards daytime consumption after installing solar on their homes. … [Read more...] about Are solar, wind and marine power too intermittent to be useful?
The Health and Safety Executive granted the project exemption in 2018 from the current 0.1% limit on hydrogen in the UK gas network after an extensive examination of evidence to ensure it would be safe. Keele University was identified as an ideal location, because it owns and operates a private gas network that can be isolated from the main network. … [Read more...] about Zero-carbon hydrogen injected into gas grid for first time in groundbreaking UK trial
