Shipping in batteries: the economics?

What if it were possible to displace diesel from high-cost, high-carbon “island” electricity grids, by charging up large batteries with gas- and renewable power, then shipping the batteries? This model…

Hybrid horizons: industrial use of batteries?

Gas and diesel engines can be particularly inefficient when idling, or running at 20-30% loads. At these levels, their fuel economy can be impaired by 30-80%. This is the rationale…

Can Forests Offset CO2 Emissions?

This data-file assesses half-a-dozen Academic papers, to estimate the average rate of CO2 sequestration in forests, per acre per year. This number is compared against CO2 emissions per acre per…

Hydrogen Cars: how economic?
