Heat pump clear and comprehensive information

Heat pump clear and comprehensive information

renewable geothermal heat source, which will supply between 40 and 50% of our heat requirements.

A heat pump works on electricity. The heat pump extracts ‘free’ energy from the environment (renewable, green energy). With every kWh of energy from the ‘socket’ the heat pump generates 3 to 4 kWh ‘free’ from the environment.
Therefore, a heat pump is up to 5 times more economical than an electric central heating boiler.

The breakthrough is due to the availability of superconductors, made of barium copper oxide

Just about the Holy Grail of clean energy: nuclear fusion, which – unlike nuclear fission – produces no waste.

An infinite source of clean energy. But until now, not into practice. He? What says MIT? Read More

Is hydrogen the technology of the future?

Hydrogen, renewables, pros and cons, CO2, storage, power, green electricity, battery, climate change, nuclear

Fuel cells (and perhaps other technologies which use hydrogen) fill certain niches in which batteries cannot compete favorably and the opposite is also true.

When I first realized that the world is transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy, I fell in love with hydrogen technologies.

Splitting the most naturally abundant compound in the world, H2O, would be the ideal thing to fuel the future. However, there are really dangerous details to how this water must be split and the energy requirement is quite ridiculous.

What do the experts say? Read More
