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.



  To have electricity when needed


The fans of photovoltaic do not like to hear this arguments, because it hat been always the arguments of the opponents. Base load ability, supply of power plants for the prognosis failures of wind power, this words had been for solar electric power fans a red cloth.

The production of solar electricity is only the first part of the delivery. The last part is to deliver the electric power when needed.

  Lead acid batteries even with 0.-EUR photovoltaic to expensive


Go to the calculator for sea water desalination. It's a practicall example where a applications needs 24 hours a day uniformly solar electric power. Enter in the left column with the lead acid batteries 0.- EUR per kWh photovoltaic. Even a donated photovoltaic is with lead acid batteries as storage around twice as expensive as photovoltaic for 3000.-EUR per kW peak in combination with the new lithium batteries.

  With Diesel and photovoltaic, no storage, only 20% solar


It would be possible to run the sea water desalination with a Diesel generator. Always when the sun does not shine, the Diesel generator produces electric power. Always when the sun delivers not enough electric power, the generator complements. In this case, the generator works with partial load and needs per kWh more Diesel than under ideal full load.

Without storage are in this sunny country - twice solar yield per kWh peak compared to Germany - only 20% electric power share possible, in Germany only 10%

Our electric grid is very complex, but this powr system for a sea water desalination plant is a simple example, where it's possible to learn much about the problems of electric power suopply..

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




  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.


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.


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.


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?
