Taking inspiration from setinetchasketch’s blog, I have decided to also have a go at explaining my job using only the 1000 most common words in the English language. Original credit to Randall Munroe’s “Up Goer Five” who does a remarkable job of explaining rocket science using just these simple words.
I look at wind power and how it changes with time in a place where there is going to be lots of wind power one day. One day there will be lots of wind power in lots of places so this is important.
Sometimes wind power changes faster than we can respond. Fast wind changes can cause bad things like the lights going out. Sometimes there is too much wind and we have to turn it off. Turning off wind loses money and makes the world hotter. I have been looking at these problems and finding answers to them.
Joining different places in the world together helps make wind power go up and down less. Changing the way we make power with dead animals out of the ground also helps to help match wind power going up and down. Using a box to store the power we get from wind and burning dead animals can also help. Some of these things need money to happen and some of them need the people who run the places where we live to change the way we make power.
