Stated estimates for city-integrated wind and solar PV are too high (Letter in Science)

Synopsis: Recently published estimates in Science are orders-of-magnitude too large. In response to this review article in Science, we describe why the noted generation rate estimates for wind power and solar PV are too large. For wind, the atmospheric dissipation rate of ~2 W/m² limits wind power generation to much less than the 30 W/m² stated, which is supported […]
