Today’s clean energy thought: all energy systems have waste. If the UK goes ahead with their renewable energy plans, they will be burying ONE MILLION tons of fibreglass every 25 years. (For obvious reasons the UK is preferring wind to solar – Australia will have a huge solar waste issue to deal with.) Personally I’d love to see legislation demanding VRE (Variable Renewable Energy) farms recycle all this and include the cost in the charge to customers – just as nuclear power already does in most countries for dealing with their own waste.
(Except some national nuclear waste policy appears ignorant of the potential of breeder reactors to eat nuclear waste. EG: Yucca Mountain in the USA is a waste of money.)
