for energy increases.

Could you provide a link please? What is 60 m/W/day

Sorry, was a typo, should be 60 mW/day. Company website is www.marinepowerutilities.com The company has built 2 working prototypes which exceeded expectations and now looking for investors.

Hydrogen as renewable energyPosted 4 years Ago

Renewable energy has come a long way in the last decade, but efficiency, costs and emissions are still a serious issue. Hydrogen is underated, but unfortunately extraction processes particularly using fossil fuels is no less green that burning diesel in gensets to produce energy. Yes, there are carbon emission collectors, but again these are expensive and not commonly used around the globe. Already the cost of fossil fuels is the basis of H2 extraction costs. H2 is hugely abundant in seawater, and some companies are extracting using catalysts, but again not so green. Emissions are generally carbon monoxides and dioxides, nitrous oxides. Whereas, burning H2 emits only vapor.
Marine Power Utilities (MPU) has designed and built an H2 extraction manifold powered by a 12v battery used for on-demand directly into an H2ICE with alternator, capable of producing up to 60 m/W/day with a single unit. They can provide a floating platform housing their manifold and genset to generate energy at a low cost, low carbon footprint for almost any application. Using multiple engines on a large rig like platform, can produce energy in the hundreds of mega watts/day. This technology is more than disruptive and will certainly turn the energy sector on it's ear. They are currently looking for investors. It will be a shame if the IP was purchased and shelved, as it has massive potential to help lower worldwide carbon emissions as the demand for energy increases.

Hydrogen vs Electric vs OtherPosted 4 years Ago

I have recently designed and built a solid state battery about the same size as a 45kg gas bottle with a storage capacity of 100kW. With my design, it is possible to build a 250kW battery, but of course the bigger the battery, the heavier for handling. But, can be trailerised as a 250kW would weigh 500kgs, which would be ideal on a huge farm which can be charged from solar, wind, etc. It is a single unit battery, not made up of thousand's of smaller batteries. And certainly not Lithium. The design is simple and cheap enough to construct, can be made both cylindrical and cubicle, especially for grid stabilization and back up storage. Has no expensive anodes and cathodes, has long life and low temperature usage, uses everyday 'off the shelf' components, and a built in inverter if necessary. Can be used standing upright or lying on it's side. I can see this being hugely competitive due to it's low cost and storage capacity. Considering what other manufacturers charge per kW, which appears to be collaborative due to their exuberant pricing structures, my battery will make it more affordable for everyday households, agricultural, commercial, industrial and grid storage and stabilization. Our expected retail per kW will be less than half of existing rates. It can also be charged while being used. Ideal for renewable energy applications where the load is on the battery, not the source. Also has the potential to be used in EV's. I am from NZ, but looking for a serious partner to manufacture in USA.
