Hydrogen to store green electricity

Hydrogen plant 'Hybalance' Denmark

Hydrogen plant ‘Hybalance’ Denmark

In windy regions like the north of Europe, the challenge is to store all the green windmill electricity.

Of course the large amounts of electricity can be stored in batteries but Denmark, the Netherlands and Germany are investing in hydrogen to store the energy.

California tests battery sites

California tests battery sites

One of many battery-system components that, it is hoped, will help California bolster its power grid.

Utilities have been studying batteries nationwide. But none have moved ahead with the gusto of those in Southern California.

After the giant gas leak in Oct. 2016, Californian engineers decided to turn to another technology, batteries. 

They freed up the utilities to start installing batteries – huge battery sites.

And, as a result: it’s the worlds first battery side test of this size.  Read More

Kite Power reality by Roosegaarde

Kite Power reality by Roosegaarde

During reel-out, the kite is flying figure-eight maneuvers at high speed (70 to 90 km/h). This creates a high traction force (3.1 kN at 7 m/s wind speed) which is converted into electricity by the drum and the connected 20 kW generator.

Kite Power by harnessing high altitude wind next step in Dutch Icon project ‘Afsluitdijk’. 

Even NASA has started to work on airborne wind energy. This field is very new and has much room for innovation.

Flight testing with actual consistent measured power production is the next step.

That’s why art-innovator Daan Roosegaarde is going to install and light the kites at the Afsluitdijk in the Netherlands. Read More

Power Storage in Ammonia

Liquid Ammonia as battery

If this large-scale storage of renewable energy in liquid ammonia succeeds, communities can cover long low wind and solar energy periods

Is liquid Ammonia the solution for energy storage?

Big energy company Nuon, together with the Technical University Delft started a pilot project in which renewable energy will be stored in liquid ammonia. Read More

Gates: We need an energy miracle

Gates: We need an energy miracle

The challenge we face is big, perhaps bigger than many people imagine. But so is the opportunity. If the world can find a source of cheap, clean energy, it will do more than halt climate change. It will transform the lives of millions of the poorest families.

Every year, Bill Gates writes a letter to students.

This year’s letter is about our climate and energy transition towards a renewable energy world.

In his letter, he notices that that all plans and existing techniques will not be sufficient enough to stop the global warming.

This year, Gates appeals to the students of today. Read More

Green affortable desalination technology Virgin Islands, using gravitation

Since last weekend, the Virgin Islands, an archipelago in the Caribbean Sea, runs a sustainable desalination plant on solar power, designed by ‘Elemental Water Makers’.

Seawater is converted into fresh water with renewable energy sources. Read More

Japanese breakthrough triples wind power

The Wind Lens could deliver five times more power than conventional turbines

The Wind Lens could deliver even five times more power than conventional turbines

Japanese researchers have created a technology called “Wind Lens” that at least triples the potential output of a wind turbine

The Wind Lens is a source of renewable energy that Japan has been introducing since the earthquake and tsunami of 2011.

Imagine: our entire society powered by the quiet “woosh” of a wind turbine. Kyushu University‘s Wind Lens Turbine is one example of the many innovations happening right now that could transform our world in a green world. Read More

South Australia gets 40% of its electricity from wind and solar

 

Renewables, solar, energy

Solar is expected to contribute 117MW by 2015

Of all the Australian states, the South has the most wind and solar capacity per person. Wind power generates electricity equal to about a third of the state’s total consumption and rooftop solar generates about 6%. All up, South Australia gets about 40% of its electricity from wind and solar. Read More

Renewables cost fossil-fueled generators up to $157 million and reduce fuel costs by $7 billion

Top 100 U.S. Organizations Using Renewable Energy

Renewable energy: in a 33% renewable scenario on the western grid there is a net savings of over $6.8 billion dollars each year

From a system perspective, wind and solar can increase annual operating costs for fossil-fueled generators by $35 million to $157 million, while reducing fuel costs by $7 billion reports NREL.

New Energy needs a long term scope because climate change is a long-term issue

Top 100 U.S. Organizations Using Renewable Energy

Climate change is a long-term issue

Bill Gates and Jigar Shah started an excellent discussion – and good science should spark debate. But, when determining policies pertaining to emissions reductions – for the electricity or any other sector – the scope needs to be long term because climate change is a long-term issue. Read More

Unlimited WavePower: Promising Mini Model

This WavePower Generator mini-model is the first to use the whole elliptic way of movement of the waves. And by that takes the full advantage of the wave energy in order to produce electricity. Fully patented, the most efficient device for producing electricity from wave’s energy.

The wave energy potential is

  • 10 times greater than wind energy
  • more than 100 times greater than solar energy

The WavePower generator is capable of gathering almost 30% of the waves energy potential.

 

Maintenance and repair costs

Prior calculations show that the total cost of energy (financing, building and maitenance) for 20 years should be around USD 0.02/KWh.
