2021-03-28 Lavo, Hydrogen

From TSLA group – about hydrogen from my blog previous to this one. Nick Carrière Said, “…fundamental flaws with hydrogen vehicles…” Well, first off ‘converting to AC for a motor’ is necessary for battery EVs, too. But the losses are only a few percent either way. Said, “Total energy losses are several times higher…” That

2021-03-28 Gov’t Should Fund Green Hydrogen Plant

Also on FB group The govt should fund a plant for electrolyzing green hydrogen from water. This should be able to soak up all the power from renewables that otherwise would be curtailed during off-peak demand times. The whole idea is to get the ball rolling on green hydrogen production without putting load on the

2021-03-22 LCOE Levelized Cost Of Energy – NREL

From FB reply Nuclear power plants are too expensive and are being taken out of service and decommissioned. The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station is being decommissioned at a cost of 4.4 billion dollars and will take 20 years. LCOE levelized cost of energy is how a utility judges its generating assets. Nuclear and conventional

2021-03-11 Tony Seba Et.Al. Discuss Decline Of Coal, Conventional Energy

Tony Seba & co-author talk about the decline of coal and conventional energy, the incorrect predictions of the EIA, and how much cheaper renewables plus storage are and will be. Quotes: << …the costs of solar, wind plus storage will fall by another 70% by 2030. What natural gas did to coal in the 2010s,

2021-02-24 EVs Vs ICE vehicles,

From my FB reply to many negative comments by this hypercritic. Ned Goldston *No* EV owner needs to have a solar panel system to charge their EV with green electricity. In California there are no coal power plants and the natural gas plants are being replaced with peak shaving utility scale batteries. At times of

2021-02-23 Trans-west Express,Breakthroughenergy.org

From Gates’ book p.82 << Construction on the Trans West Express, a transmission project designed to move wind-generated power from Wyoming to California and the Southwest, is scheduled to begin in 2021. The project is supposed to become operational in 2024—some 17 years after planning began. But if we could pull this off, it would

2021-02-23 Green Premium

From Gates’ book p.74 << It’s not immediately obvious why there’s such a thing as a Green Premium in the first place. Natural gas plants have to keep buying fuel as long as they’re running: solar farms, wind farms, and dams get their fuel for free. Also, there’s the truism that as you take a

2021-02-17 100% Renewables 4x to 6x Will Power Almost Everything

In this YouTube video, Tony Seba shows us that 100% renewables plus storage, when it is about 4x the electricity demand, will be enough for powering the electricity sector. In the future with 20% more, the Solar, Wind and Battery Storage will be enough to power all sectors except for the industrial sector. It will
