2021-07-25 Sunlight To Split H2O Into Hydrogen

<< Making hydrogen is hard, but researchers have solved a major hurdle. >> The article doesn’t say if it’s electrolysis. But the efficiency must be better than electrolysis for it to replace electrolysis. https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2021-07/uota-mch071921.php I think it might be more practical to combine a solar array, electrolytic hydrogen generator and other equipment into a single

2021-07-22 Italian Studies On Flexible Renewables + Storage

Important Info What really angers me is the cynical propaganda that has been spread by the fossil fuel proponents that the electrical grid can’t be stable without “base load” from thermal power plants. This lie must be buried as soon as possible by research studies and as much proof as possible by real world experience.

2021-07-13 Where Do Solar Panels Go When They Die?

This article wrongly assumes that the solar panels are no longer usable after 25 years. But they can still put out 80% or more of their power after 25cyears. Some panels are sold as used 250 Watt panels for $50. Others may be shipped to other countries for use in areas with no electricity. https://electrek.co/2020/08/24/where-do-solar-panels-go-when-they-die/

2021-06-22 How Much Land To Power US?

This article gives an excellent idea of the amount of land to power all of the US using solar panels. Note that the 20,000 sq. mi figure is revised to 10,000 sq. mi or a 100 by 100 mile square that would easily fit in the Mojave Desert, assuming rooftop solar was on most homes.
