如何面对能源短缺问题?_英语新闻

A trail-blazing utility that against full distributed energy.

一个风能先驱对电池持有怀疑的态度。

One of Ignacio Galan’s early jobs as an engineer was to design lead-acid batteries for the milk floats that used to trundle around Britain’s streets.

作为工程师,Ignacio Galan早期的一个工作是为在英国街道上行驶的送牛奶的马车设计铅酸电池。

So the 66-year-old Spaniard, who heads Iberdrola, one of the world’s largest utilities, claims he has been thinking about the storage of electricity for his whole career.

所以这位66岁的西班牙人,作为Iberdrola项目——世界上最大的公共事业项目之一的负责人,声称在他的整个事业里一直在考虑电能储存的问题。

That is useful, because for the second time since he took over Iberdrola in 2001, the industry faces a fork in the road.

这是很有用的,因为在他在2001年第二次接手Iberdrola这个项目的时候,这个行业正面临着分岔路口。

This time round, the big debate in energy is about batteries and storage.

这一次,关于能源问题的大争论主要集中在电池和存储方面。

The first time, Mr Galan blazed the right trail.

第一次,格兰先生开辟了一条正确的道路。

He made a prescient bet on renewable energy, turning Iberdrola into one of the world’s largest providers of onshore wind while at the same time underpinning returns with relatively safe, regulated electricity networks in America (Avangrid) and Britain (ScottishPower).

他对可再生能源有先见之明的确信,将伊维尔德罗拉公司成为世界上最大的陆上风力供应商,同时支撑其电力运行返回相对安全,控制着美国(avangrid子公司)和英国(ScottishPower子公司)的电力网络。

Some European peers, such as Germany’s E.ON and RWE, took the opposite approach, prioritising conventional fossil-fuel-fired power plants in less regulated markets.

但一些欧洲同行,如德国的E.ON和莱恩,采取了相反的做法,在不那么规范的市场里,他们优化传统化石燃料发电厂处。

In the past five years, the Germans have been through near-death experiences, and have belatedly created stand-alone renewables and grid businesses.

所以在过去的五年中,德国的公司经历了接近死亡的经验,迟迟才创造了独立的可再生能源和电网企业。

Iberdrola’s share price has more than doubled.

而Iberdrola公司的股价却早已翻了一倍多。

The renewables revolution has, in turn, caused the latest dilemma, because intermittent sun and wind require ways of storing electricity as a backup.

不过,因为间歇性的太阳和风能需要储存电力作为备份,所以可再生能源革命也带来了新的问题。
