House without grid connection

An energy consultant at the other end of the telephone wants to tell me, that a normal house will have in the future no grid connection. Here the truth about this nonsens.

  Dreams from hydrogen

There is a manufacturer of inverters who wants to make hydrogen with excess electricity and to make later when the demand is with a fuel cell electric power.

And so, houses in the future have no grid connection.

  The hard reality

For the supply of an one family house including electric mobility have to be saved 3000 kWh summer excess to the winter.

Let's ignore todays fuel cells, let's be total optimistic, let's assume 50% electric efficiency can be reached. So 6000 kWh hydrogen had to be strord to produce 3000 kWh electric power.

But how looks a storage for 6000 kWh hydrogen like? Hydrogen has as a gas 90 g/m². Best high pressure tanks are for 700 bar suitable. 63 kg hydrogen in 1 m³. 1 kg has 33 kWh chemical energy. The 6000 kWh require 182 kg hydrogen. This makes around 3m³ high pressure storage.

  Small Daisy Cutter Bomb in the cellar

Just right now, an house in Austria exploed by a natural gas accident. When a high pressure tank becomes leaky and 183 kg hydrogen explode, also the whole neighborhood would be flat.

  Hydrogen for central big technic

Hydrogen is something for existing underground gas storage, existing CCPP combined cycle power plants, but sure not for the cellar.

Where will hydrogen as a storage medium determine our energy future and where will the hydrogen technology fail by more suitable methods?

  2009 The fossil recession is contradicted

Peak oil brought 2008 all economy bubbles to burst, but instead of a consequent change to renewable energy, the fossil stuck in the mud do not give up.

CO2 carbon dioxid interest
Who takes a credit has to pay back because of the interest much more. Also at the greenhouse gases, interest exists, the unfreezing permafrost grounds worsen the situation.

350 billions tons CO2
Fossil energy is something extrem short term, solar energy will be at last 4 billion years. A compare of fossil energy vs photovoltaic.

Climate renewal costs
The resarch of the earth population about the theme climate renewal and climate renovation costs is complete insufficient. But without caclulation of the consequential costs no CO2 tax.

Applied Materials makes loss
In a normal world, Applied Materials would have to search desperate for new personal, train new personal. The delivery termins for new photovoltaic factories would be 2013.

There is no over capacity at photovoltaic
The chief of a solar company talks about an over capacity on the photovoltaik market. But the worldwied production is just 1% of the absolut minimum from what is required.
