Hubert Lindsay (talk | contribs)‎‎ ( Comment -> Hi @Jack and all, The reference related to the contribution of Oil and Petroleum to Canada's GDP ... rather than an industry source, could you use the official stats from National Resources Canada? https://www.nrcan.gc.ca/energy/facts/energy-economy/20062 The difference ... the Energy Sector as a whole, inclusive of sources like hydro and renewables, is almost 7% GDP (2016) with 270,000 direct jobs and 600,000 indirect )

• (view) . . Comment: Has renewable energy hit a threshold for 'abrupt and irreversible change?'‎; 12:44:52, 02 Feb 2018 . . Hubert Lindsay (talk | contribs)‎‎ ( Comment -> Hi Alan and Robbie. Thanks both for your inputs. I agree with the fix for the awkwardly constructed phrasing. For the McKinsey reference, here's a link to the article: https://www.mckinsey.com/business-functions/sustainability-and-resource-productivity/our-insights/the-new-economics-of-energy-storage - I understand the $/kWh statements to refer to the costs to build the storage capacity which can be expressed in terms of power (kW) or energy (kWh). For instance a Tesla PowerWall can have a continuous output capacity of 5kW but a storage capacity of 13.2kWh -- and using the McKinsey value of $200 per kWh, the cost for 5KW output capacity and 13.2kWh of storage capacity would be estimated at $2,640, as a point of reference. And I had (and do) intend to add additional references. The article went from draft to published before I had a chance to review it again, so I fully appreciate the level of detail in your reviews and contributions. )

US, France, China of course, but countries in Africa have had active space programs for decades. https://face2faceafrica.com/article/top-5-african-countries-advanced-space-programs )

  1. Hubert, we have published the story. Thank you. If you were kind enough to go in and update your profile it would be helpful as it would appear at the bottom of the story and the rest of the community can get a view on your background and skills.

  2. Hi Hubert – thanks for creating the project ‘Will subsidy-free renewable energy hit a tipping point in 2018?’ here – https://www.wikitribune.com/?post_type=projects&p=32309&preview=true

    Unfortunately this is a story not a project and I’m unable to move it myself as it would give me credit for the work. Would you be able to copy-paste this as a story draft?

    Please let me know if you need anything!
