The wood ofen will become a luxury, instead of 4,3 kWh heat by burning, we will invest 10 kWh electric power to produce 1,65 methanol from 1 kg wood.
1 ha forest
In earlier times, people hat been satisfied with a simple fireplace using only a part of 4,3 kWh thermal energy per kg wood to heat.
In the future, we will use 10 kWh electric power for hydrogen electrolysis and chemical processing to refine wood to methanol as idael fuel for range extenders in plug-in hybrid cars.
1 ha forest delivers in middle Europe 2,5 tons wood per year. 500 litre Diesel at simple usage, or 4125 litre methanol grafted with the electric power of 200m² photovoltaic.
= 4125 l Methanol
