Mitigating climate change necessitates stopping net carbon dioxide emissions within the coming decades. Part of this transition requires moving from fossil fuels like coal and natural gas to renewable power sources to meet our electricity needs. However, with the exception of geothermal, renewables are largely non-dispatchable. Intermittencies in wind, solar, and hydropower lead to duck curves, necessitating a fossil fuel baseload to meet demand. Completely decarbonizing electricity generation thus requires energy storage across hours, days, and seasons. This presentation examines how fuels can help bridge that divide, evaluating the different options available to us and constructing a renewable, carbon-neutral, and scalable system of fuel generation and consumption.
