2021-10-11 Hydrogen House Project Tour Video

This guy runs everything off hydrogen. He makes his own, stores his own and powers everything from green hydrogen. He has six patents dealing with hydrogen. He made his own system. https://youtu.be/NMH1pBAYgYs GKN Hydrogen’s HY2MINI demonstrator. This is a similar setup. The solar array powers the electrolyzer. The green hydrogen is stored in metal hydride

2021-09-27 LFP Batteries Only Made In China

China has somewhat of an exclusive right to manufacture LFP batteries but the patent expires in 2022. https://techcrunch.com/2021/07/28/what-teslas-bet-on-iron-based-batteries-means-for-manufacturers/

2021-08-17 Laser Hydride Film Stores Hydrogen

This company called Plasma Kinetics has developed a thin film that can store hydrogen at the same volume as a 5000 PSI cylinder but lighter, and lighter than batteries. The medium can be very thin film or disks. The hydrogen is released by shining a laser onto the film. Because the hydrogen does not have

2021-08-13 Friday! Free Hydrogen!

Ongoing argument! Ivan Rusev I fully understand the math behind what you’re saying. But I got through explaining why is doesn’t matter, and that fell on your deaf ears! You said, “…if you had no bias whatsoever…” Ivan it’s you that doesn’t have the open mind to give credence to other technologies than batteries. They’re

2021-07-28 Concentrated Solar Power, Solar PV

Thread from FB << Michael Burns Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) is a totally different technology, which has a lot of operational advantages over PV, but still many disadvantages compared to other generation types. Functionally, CSP is simply thermal energy storage, so like a battery, when it’s “charged”, it can be included in the short term

2021-07-27 Tesla: Shortages Slow Megapack Production

The global chip shortage and supply chain shortages slow Tesla’s production of Megapacks. They have an 80,000 order backlog but could produce only 35,000. Musk thinks there will be a demand for a million Megapacks a year due to renewables replacing fossil fuels. Energy products revenue was more than $800 million. Quote: << Although Tesla

2021-07-10 SMES Superconducting Magnet Energy Storage

Bill Sherman told me about SMES which has already been put into use commercially. One of the concerns is how much energy is wasted to keep the magnets cryogenically cold. Another cost concern is the superconducting coil has to be made of a material that contains very expensive rare metals. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superconducting_magnetic_energy_storage

2021-07-09 Hydrogen Can Do What Batteries can’t do

From FB group Heinz Baumann Your chart fails to show the whole picture. The chart doesn’t show that the renewables can’t supply the total electricity demand until the 20 to 35% capacity factor is accounted for by building 3 or more times the solar or wind that is needed. During the winter due to less
