2020-11-17 Tesla Batteries And Supply Constraints

The manufacturing of Electric Vehicles and grid scale storage are constrained by the amounts of batteries that can be supplied by the battery makers around the world. The early Tesla EVs used the ubiquitous 18650 lithium ion cells, something like 6000 per vehicle. In order to reduce costs and weight Tesla went to the larger

2020-11-11 Redox Flow W/O Vanadium; Chinese Anti-Capitalism Economics

Researchers have come up with a redox flow battery that uses organic chemicals in place of toxic and expensive vanadium. They cost less than half as much, too. We need to have millions of these made and deployed over the whole world to solve the intermittent renewables problem. Chinese Anti-capitalist economics The capitalist way

2020-10-09 Gencell A5 System Powered By Ammonia

The Gencell A5 can power a cell site for a year 27/7/365 from a 12 ton tank of anhydrous ammonia. The tank is not pressurized and is at room temperature. The system converts ammonia to hydrogen and nitrogen and the hydrogen powers the fuel cells.

2020-10-07 Tesla Plans On Mass Production Of Li-Ion Cells

@prerunn Said, “… battery cell production isn’t large enough…” The li-Ion cell production is being scaled up to be mass produced in the gigafactories that Tesla is building right now. The cell production lines are being optimized for maximum production at minimum costs. All of the cells Tesla makes will be used in their products

2020-10-07 The Solenco PowerBox™ System

This self-contained system uses solar PV panels as the only power input. It generates and stores green hydrogen, then uses it later for both electricity and heat. The fuel cell’s byproduct is water. One important “problem” that I see is that this system makes the customer completely independent of the electricity _and_ gas utilities. There

2020-10-03 Tesla And Hydrogen

My comment to a YouTube video. Like Tom says, “in my opinion…” There will be an upward trend in the production of green hydrogen and consequently a downward trend in the cost per kg. Large fleets of heavy vehicles can be converted from diesel to hydrogen, and it has the advantage of faster refueling than

2020-10-02 ESS Flow Battery Uses Iron & Water

The Energy Storage Systems makes a flow battery that is rated at 50 kW and 400 kWh. The battery uses non-toxic Iron and Water. The battery has no capacity degradation over its lifetime – it puts out the same amount of power. This YouTube video explains more.

2020-09-30 Fuel Cells Pro’s And Cons; Nat’l Fuel Cell Day

From my comments to YouTube video Matt Ferrell. I think you missed something. The fuel cell is not limited in range, like a battery is. The fuel cell can have greater range without increasing its size. Just add a bigger fuel tank. The fuel cell vehicles can be fueled in a few minutes, not a
