Waiting for cheaper renewables can cost more in the long run

Ars Technica - May 22, 2018 - 8:32pm

Waiting for the price to come down before switching to a new technology sounds like a frugal decision. But when it comes to a country’s electrical grid, what saves you money now could actually cost you much more in the long run. That’s the central conclusion of a new study led by Imperial College London’s Clara Heuberger.

Almost every nation in the world (depending on how you categorize the United States’ erratic behavior) has pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in pursuit of limiting global warming. A large component of that pledge is the conversion of electrical generation from fossil fuels to renewables. But there is a tension between the cheap and immediate availability of fossil fuels and the varied status of different renewable technologies.

Waiting for unicorns

It may make some economic sense to watch the price of solar continue its fall before installing. But there’s also the temptation to wait for what the researchers categorize as “unicorn technologies”—things like next-generation batteries for grid-scale storage, cheaper systems for capturing carbon dioxide from power plants, or even fusion. In other words, there’s a tendency to think that renewables aren’t worth pursuing too hard until some game-changing, cheap technology comes along that revolutionizes the grid.

Dealmaster: Get a Samsung Gear VR headset for $30

Ars Technica - May 22, 2018 - 7:11pm

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is led by a deal on Samsung's Gear VR headset, which is down to $30 at Verizon. That's a big drop from its usual $100-130 price range.

This particular model won't fit the Galaxy Note 8—though the model that does is down to $50 itself—but it will work with most other flagship Galaxy phones from the past few years, this year's Galaxy S9 included. It doesn't support any non-Samsung phones, sadly, but for a mobile VR headset, the Oculus-powered Gear VR tends to have a stronger selection of apps than Google's competing Daydream View headset, and it comes with a motion controller for a little extra precision. Just don't expect it to be on the Oculus Go's level in terms of horsepower.

If you're not interested in VR, we also have deals on several gaming PCs, portable batteries, Sonos speakers, 4K TVs, monitors, and much more. Take a look for yourself below.
