When it comes to alternative energy sources, solar is the winner at the moment. Wind is having issues and just read about Siemens Energy financial issues related to wind turbines in the latest edition of The Economist magazine. Nuclear is expensive, according to the Carbon Copy podcast by Canary Media Inc. the big costs of nuclear are permitting and construction. Best practice countries have the one organization build and manage nuclear power and given the expense, there seems to be more of a push to large builds rather than small modular, to get efficiencies of scale. https://www.afr.com/policy/energy-and-climate/renewables-are-cheapest-even-with-poles-wires-and-batteries-added-in-20231219-p5esl6

    I think we can agree solar power is doing pretty well at the moment but we need to improve on it's production and on wind power as well

      The overall sentiment aligns with the view that renewables, particularly solar, remain the more economically viable and widely embraced option in the ongoing fight against climate

        Solar energy is definitely a standout in the alternative energy sector. Its popularity as a renewable energy source has increased significantly in recent years due to its cost-effectiveness, accessibility, and environmental benefits.
