Climate and energy statistics

Climate change, renewables, energy transitions, security and affordability are all actual topics. Here you find plot of daily and seasonal fluctuations of renewable energy (intermittency) for different places in the world. You also find a few short summaries on energy related subjects. While a lot is written on renewables and the energy transition; a look at the data can give a more realistic view on what can and cannot be achieved with renewables.
