Money should be spent on pure research for energy technologies not developed yet that is in developed countries. Not scaling up technologies that can’t work. 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! Three ideas way better than lithium batteries (nightmare), bird choppers wind mills, and PV panels no energy density toxic and $ goes to China coal power plants. Mercury rains on us all?
Wind sail is better and has energy storage built in.
Most of energy goes to heating. Thanks Jean Pain
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.
