Solar and battery storage to make up 81% of new U.S. electric-generating capacity in 2024

https://www.eia.gov/todayinenergy/detail.php?id=61424

@technology

pedalmore,

Capacity and generation are two different things. Grid operators have capacity markets that ensure peak load can be met, and incude generations assets, demand response, energy efficiency, etc. Batteries absolutely coumt as capacity so long as they are managed to do so.

wmassingham,

The headline seems to mean 81% of generation and storage capacity. When the article talks about battery storage, it only says storage, not generation.

Seems like only the US is available. I am also curious about a product like this that’d deliver to Sweden.

Well, it turns out Telenor is selling that exact model here. Maybe check your phone provider?

prettybunnys,

I’ve updated mine and it’s generally made it better tbh, at least insomuch as now that I have that setting toggled I don’t have to deal with hitting their smart shit.

I just always update it and then reset it, stay at the firmware level but set it up like a new TV and don’t connect it.

Dran_Arcana,

factory reset went back to the shitty upgrade version I upgraded to :(. But I will say that I haven’t let it update since that initial terrible upgrade assuming it might get worse. Maybe I should try upgrading it once more and then lock it off if the next version is decent?

Blaze,

It would be nice if those fines could be used to support free software development for alternatives

wewbull,

IIRC it wasn’t the signal protocol, just the encryption methods that were shared with WhatsApp. I don’t think federation was ever on the cards.

> NSA officials told Wyden that not only is the intelligence agency purchasing data on Americans located in the US but that it also bought Americans' Internet metadata.

Source: https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2024/01/nsa-finally-admits-to-spying-on-americans-by-purchasing-sensitive-data/

Why do you need to spy, when you can simply... buy?

We gave up our data willingly and made it easy for all the 3-letter agencies of the world. We only have ourselves to blame. 🤷‍♂️

Seriously. Why act like the NSA are the bad guys? It’s literally their job. They would be negligent in their duties if they didn’t do it.

If people want more privacy, they need to change the fucking laws.

Oh I’m no fan of the NSA purchasing untold amounts of data about Americans, but seriously how can you blame them for it when the data is readily and legally available for purchase by pretty much anyone? These datasets shouldn’t exist in the first place.

Does anyone else see bespoke batteries as a scam?

I noticed the difference in my xbox controller vs playstation. My woman had to keep hers plugged in because the battery was at end-of-life, I kept a set of rechargeable AA's and used them in my mouse, xbox paddle, razor...I forget what all else.

Why not standardize phone and laptop batteries?

@muntedcrocodile@lemmy.world avatar

Nope just greedy fuckers being greedy. In devices like phones it kinda makes sense from a space efficiency standpoint but most devices its simply so they can take ur money when u need a replacement.

Someone @technology suggested this site, I’m a bit surprised by the services offered as alternatives to the big tech companies. Very nice overview.
