LENR vs Solar/Wind, and emerging Green Technologies.

  • It may be worth noting that researchers from the same Eindhoven University have been studying Mills' Argon-hydrogen plasmas for perhaps over 15 years and reporting anomalous results. Perhaps they are hoping for some extra energy boost to their argon engine from hydrino formation...

  • Can it explain Papp engine's 'excess energy'?

    The idea is completely different: Thermodynamics is based on the factor 3kT where the 3 comes from the degree of freedom of two atomic gases being translative motion, oscillation and rotation. Argon has only one degree of freedom and only intrinsic rotation that is not triggered. So most energy is going into kinetic movement. Key is to keep the percentage of fuel low relative to the argon volume.

    They cite monatomicity as a primary factor contributing to efficiency. If you have two experiments one with cylinder filled with argon another with air as a control. Argon should produce more mechanical energy out of same input that may pass for 'excess energy''.

    Sadoway and his battery technology.He calls the field

    Tough Tech.So should LENR

    be called Really Tough Tech.

    This is a classic problem for the Teslas in cold weather, I have seen at least one article some years ago with exactly the same topic. The problem is not really of the brand but of Li ion batteries, and batteries in general, cold weather hurts them badly.

    I certainly Hope to see LENR helping humans to blossom, and I'm here to help it happen.

  • Powering Net Zero- EPRI Report on future strategies for electrical power generation in the USA.

    Abstract

    In a new analysis, EPRI explores scenarios for achieving net-zero emissions targets in the U.S. electric sector in the context of deep economy-wide decarbonization, considering the implications of how the target is defined, the timing of the target, the costs of the transformation, and interactions with the end-use sectors.

  • Powering Net Zero- EPRI Report on future strategies for electrical power generation in the USA.

    It is a little unfair to demand net-zero electricity when other uses of fuel produce so much CO2. Such as transportation, water heating with natural gas, and some manufacturing. However, electricity is highest of high-tech industries. It is the most centralized, and it is completely controlled by expert engineers and workers. So, if you invent an improvement, you can apply it to the whole industry more easily than you can apply it to something like home water heaters.


    Auto transportation can be made net-zero by using electric cars. That shifts the burden to the power companies. That is another reason the focus is on the power companies to go net-zero. It fixes the two biggest sources of energy use: electricity and auto transportation.


    Electric cars now tap into some coal and natural gas generated electricity, so they are not net-zero. But as the electric power industry modernizes, electric cars will gradually produce less CO2 per mile. Also, they are far more efficient than any gasoline powered ICE so even with coal, they produce less CO2 per mile by most estimates. (That is disputed.) Anyway, coal is on its way out in most countries.

  • This is a classic problem for the Teslas in cold weather,

    I am a little surprised the performance does not recover when the engine heats up, after several miles. In winter, the Prius miles per gallon improves dramatically after about 3 miles when the engine warms up. The dashboard display shows that. You can tell the engine is warm because the cabin heater does not trigger the engine idle when you stop at a red light.

  • Can it explain Papp engine's 'excess energy'?

    Part of it.

    I'll leave this here and walk out 😁. Some electrical outputs apparently from vacuum.. understand trace isotopes can be affected by high energy EM fields and ionization. I remember someone claiming that the Papp engine was a zpe device, even though it includes water and unstable ionizing isotopes in one electrode. It's literally a decay fueled engine with noble working gas.

    "The NGE was self contained ...Each piston was fired in order similar to a modern day combustion engine. The noble gas was not ignited, which makes sense, but simply excited with a high voltage spark (400kV range). The gas inside each piston was focused with coils surrounding each piston chamber. When hit with a high voltage spark the noble gas mixture which was pre-ionized with a radioactive electrode in each piston, expanded rapidly in the piston and produced a steam engine effect."

    Just checked the patent, they did know, even the EM accelerated decay part is confirmed. Imagine if there were simpler gas composition and a common less radioactive unstable isotope. Some of them got cancer due to high energy rare isotopes used. Think, both multi-nuclei protium enabled fire and accelerated weaker beta emissions could fertilize each other.. God have mercy as we do better!

    There are milder approaches!

  • Let us all put windmills on our cars while we are at it. SMH.

    In the late 1950's my family often went to Weston-super-mare , Somerset for our summer holidays.

    At the far end of the beach, in a specially designated area , they raced 2 seater 'land yachts'

    Speedwise they could easily outperform the majorty of cars on the road at that time.

    So why the drive for EV's, these would be far better.

  • hydrofoil yachts achieve speeds far in excess of the wind speed.

    Yes X4 currently as for last America's cup then X5 in the future by supercavitation foils :) i have had this information from an expert in this field :)

    And, as not many people know, wind-powered cars can go downwind faster than the wind. Which sounds ridiculous but has been proven true. In the same way, hydrofoil yachts achieve speeds far in excess of the wind speed.
