2022-06-16 Nanogrid Uses Hydrogen Storage

I really like this all-in-one solar plus storage system which has both batteries and green hydrogen generation, storage and fuel cells. It’s expensive but everything is integrated into one package. https://electrek.co/2022/06/16/check-out-this-solar-green-hydrogen-mobile-nanogrid-with-a-level-2-ev-charger/

2022-06-14 Calif Reached 100% Renewable Electricity

Originally an EarthDay.org article. They made 3 points. They said, <<California must still rely on fossil fuels to meet its energy demands.>> The peak energy demands can be reduced by using a ‘smart grid’ where the grid has some control over the heavier demands. One example is residential HVAC and hot water. These can be

2022-04-28 Ginormous 20 GW Solar + Storage Project in NT, Australia

Sun Cable plans to build 17 to 20 gigawatt plus battery storage in Australia to power Singapore through undersea cable. $30 billion (Aus). To show how Ginormous this project is, divide 20 billion watts by 1000 watts, then multiply by 2.5 (400 watts per panel). So 20 million times 2.5 is FIFTY MILLION solar panels!!

2022-04-15 Hibernating Battery For Seasonal Storage

The PNNL claims this phase change energy storage can hibernate for long-term storage. They stated that the room temperature battery must be heated up to 150 deg C to bring it out of hibernation. There are a few problems that I see with this. The battery takes time and power to heat it up to

2022-04-14 Calif. Needs Massive Buildout Of Battery Storage And Hydrogen

San Diego Gas & Electric talk about electrification, which I assume means changing from natural gas to electricity. They base their predictions on needing more renewables plus storage and green hydrogen. They haven’t taken into account that by 2045, sea level rise may force hundreds of thousands of people to have to relocate further inland.

2022-03-31 Solar Tariffs 50% Or More!

https://www.pv-magazine.com/2022/03/29/solar-starts-strong-in-the-u-s-growing-40-year-over-year-in-january/ Comment on FB group (look at the bar graph) This article said “…Nearly 40% year-over-year.” That’s good but not good enough. That needs to be more than 100% year-over-year. The whole solar industry depends on the wafer fabrication facilities, which have grown but demand is still exceeding the supply. The US needs a large
