Who sits in the glass house should not throw stones

In plain lack of knowledge about the storage problem, the say ''Atomic power highway'' or ''Atomic power refinement system'' about infrastructrue to store electric power.

  a question of cost optimization at atomic power

France shows, a grid with 80% electricity from atomic power is possible. Compared to the amount of atomic power are minimal storage systems. Atomic power plants are slowly at the power change. So when it is not possible to follow the decreasing load fast enough. there is not useable excess electricity. Excess is waste. In this sense, storage power plants do waste utilization. Excess electricity becomes valuable top demand electricity.

Storage power plants in the alps are just right now the cheapest variant. Would they not exist, the next more expensive variant would have been to use. for example Compressed air power plants. The storage problem is at atomic power insignificantly.

  A question of existence at wind and sun

Even at 80 GW wind and 160 GW sun, it is possible that on a sunny windy day are 3 times the demand is feed in the German power grid. Theoretical, it would be possible with 100 GW wind and 300 GW solar electric power to have similar high parts of renewable energy, like France has in atomic power. But in this case, at a sunny and windy day, 5 times the demand could be feed into the German grid.

There are storage power plants suddenly more than cost optimization. "Oh, our atomic power plants are producing just right now 3 GW to much electricity, the demand decreased to fast, we need storage for cost optimization".

Here is the storage technology a question of existence. "Oh, our sun- and wind power plants are just producing 300 GW to much electric power. This situation will never happen, because as long as the storage problem is not solved, sun- and wind will not be enlarged to this dimesnion.

Lithium has the best expectations to solve our problems at our mobility and the day/night balancing of a photovoltaic oriented power supply.

Proverbs in modern interpreation
Not historical, but modern amusingly in connection with own experiences, the origin of many famouse proverbs is new interpreted.

  Lithium battery as electric power storage

Basic calculation models for lithium an electricity storage. The textbook to recognise early, at what applications is rentability already given, or is short before rentability.

OGRON new energy storage
A new dimension in application possibilities for lithium batteries promisses the company OGRON. First time are storage power plants mentioned as target market.

Storage crisis of renewable energy
The whole solar electric power and wind energy branch denies the storage crisis. The standard answers about the storage problem are easy to disprove.

Pump storage power plant
The storage demand for a bic scale enlargement of solar- and wind power is with pump sorage power plants not possible. New technology is indispensably necessary.

Lithium batteries vs Kaprun
How to compare lithium batteries with a pump storage power plant. What would it cost to built Kaprun new? How is the compare of costs?

Parameter for the storage of electric power
What are the cost criteria for an electric power storage? What are the costs to store electricity? Javascript calculator for the basic parameters to store electric power.

Sea water example
The sea water desalination is used as an example, how different electric power storage systems can influence the price for solar electricity.

Sea water desalination with solar power
So much sun, why are not all seawater desalination plants operated by solar electric power? The reason until now had been the parameters of electric power storage technology.

More important than photovoltaic for 1.-EUR Watt peak
Lithium batteries with extrem much load cycles in a price range around 300.-EUR per kWh capacity are more important for the price of solar electricity than photovoltaic for 1 EUR W peak.

The dream from hydrogen
In despair about the insufficiency of lead acid batteries as electric power storage, the dream from hydrogen and fuel cell started.

Hydrogen fails at day/night balance
Hydrogen fails at the efficiency of the whole cycle from the electrolysis to the fuel cell at the day/night balance for solar electric power. Example with a sea water desalination system.

CAES costs
There are theories to make caverns in big salt layers for compressed air energy storages. This is to balance the wind energy. How expensive can a CAES be?
