I was researching Diesel engine efficiency and cleanliness as an editor for Diesel Power magazine. One of the books at my desk was on the many ways to produce hydrogen. The beginning of the book said there is no such thing as alternative energy since there are no alternatives we must do things differently than in the past. The question is what is alternative energy? The next one is what alternative or alternatives is the best? Finally the question is how do we get to this better alternative? For example what technology wins? Who decides?
I argue right now the DOE loan guarantees and other private funds are not going to the right technologies namely all the ones I don’t promote the ones I promote are better. Why are the wrong technologies getting picked? I concluded population controllers are trying to limit development of LDC countries as specified in NSSM 200.
More money should be spent on pure research for energy technologies not developed yet at leastthat is in developed countries. We should slow down On scaling up technologies that can’t work because of poor energy density and no storage system or infrastructure system. The most developed countries should work on distributed generation systems and LDc should work on traditional grid systems which are currently cheaper. If we want to save the trees and the air And I feel bad as a human making the argument to save other humans when it’s easily within our poor humans.
In the undeveloped countries they should have cheapest energy since 1 million people die every year cooking food. Also they cut down forest to cook food.
Cheaper, less risk of monopolies, and better for the environment and the PEOPLE!
GMO algea dangers and advantages?
Or you could put hydraulic pistons at the foundation of buildings and power lines and as the building sways in the wind it captures energy hydraulically and stores it in underground steel not Afghanistan lithium…
The Wind sail is better and has energy storage built in. I thought I invented it but Buckminster Fuller talk about it first. Basicallly installing hydraulic cylinders in the foundations of buildings, signs and wind sails.
The pistons mounted in a circle only travel a cm. The swaying motion is converted to hydraulic pressure which is stored in steel tanks underground. The motors turn to make electricity. Also the ammonia is created from excess electricity.
Most of energy goes to heating. Thanks Jean Pain
Every building has a mulch pile to turn wood chips into heat the heat is transferred to the building in hot water tubes.
Enhances weathering can be used to capture co2 and generate electricity from heat. Olivine rock powder is also good for reducing ocean acidification, and restores nutrients to soils.
Ammonia or NH3 can be created via renewable energy. It can be run in engines. Eddie Sturman liked ammonia when I interviewed him.
Hydraulic motors and accumulators can power cars and buildings.
Reforming nuclear waste into energy
Cyclone Steam Power
Mechanical hybrids such as lightning hybrids hydraulic hybrid, spinning flywheels and advanced combustion would help transportation.
If more people grew food that would help energy efficiency.
Energy dense liquid fuels vs grid or battery storage
So many alternatives why do only select industies benefit? We should have a contest? Or a rational way to pick the Winners if the market needs help deciding…
