Welcome to the Energy Blog


  • The Energy Blog is where all topics relating to The Energy Revolution are presented. Increasingly, expensive oil, coal and global warming are causing an energy revolution by requiring fossil fuels to be supplemented by alternative energy sources and by requiring changes in lifestyle.

Hmm, kind of hard to gauge the performance from the figures given in the press release.

200 homes x 10,000 kwh per year per home (typical power use). So that is 2 million kwh per year for a 6 million dollar initial cost.

6 milliion dollars divided by 200 = $30,000.

With no fuel costs ever, this seems competitive with roof mounted solar PV cells at the present time.

As PV cells come down in cost and solar concentrating collectors are applied to homes to supply electric power at 3 to 4 times present PV efficiecy, with a quarter of the PV cells needed, and heat is extracted from collectors as well as electricity, it may not remain competitive though.

Adding comcentrating solar PV cell technology to this trough system might just make it compete in the future though. The hot oil would get the other 60% of the solar energy not converted directly to electricity by the PV cells.

As far as costs on solar thermal parabolic trough power plants, current costs range between 9 cents to 15 cents per KWh -- which I believe is competitive with natural gas electricity generation costs today in many areas of the country.

In addition, according to a 2003 NREL study, (which can be found here http://www.nrel.gov/solar/parabolic_trough.html) generation costs for solar thermal parabolic trough power plants could as low as 6.2 - 4.3 cents per KWh in 2020.

Full Disclosure -- My company provides communications services to SCHOTT, which manufactured the solar receivers that are used at the Saguaro Solar Generating Station.

Clean energy

The entire world is looking for a source of clean energy. I have discovered a certain paradox basing on which a machine called METOZ can be built which by harnessing the gravitation of our EARTH can produce clean energy.
The energy producing process is demonstrated in:
http://www.nets.pl/~metozor/paradox.html
and can be very easily confirmed by an experiment.
I am also in possession of a set of calculations which prove that the METOZ machine:
1/ does not consume water / 39 A5-pictures /;
2/ does not consume compressed air / 39 A5-pictures /;
3/ produces energy to the outside = 4 839 kGm during a „swing cycle” /39 A5-pictures /;
/ this is a „weight cycle” = the centre of gravity of the water in the METOZ machine sinks ( downward movement ) /
4/ energy is produced / released to the outside = 44 600 kGm during the „straightening cycle” / 39 A5-pictures /.
/ this is a “pressure cycle” = the water mass centre of gravity inside the METOZ machine travels upwards (upward movement) /
Features: 1/; 2/; 3/; 4/, of the machine owing to appropriate dimensions of individual elements of the lever mechanism.
The METOZ has an even-arm lever of a 1.72 m length. The centre of gravity of the lever lies beneath the lever suspension point. The METOZ is equipped with two cylinders of a 1.6 m diameter each. Piston sidewalls do not contact directly with cylinder walls. The lever swing changes between and .
Figures ( 3 x 13 x 4 = 156 ) present temporary, consecutive action situations at intervals of . The middle figure presents the machine and the side figures the position of the left and right cylinder and the mathematical description of these situations.
In the past I have made two models, which confirmed the legitimacy of my theoretical assumptions concerning the METOZ machine. I have got photographs.
I am looking for a person who would be interested in my invention. I can offer ample information. I look forward to hearing from you.

P.S. The term “gravitational paradox” use in this description relates to the mathematical and physical description of the action of the METOZ-machine.
THE EARTH GRAVITATION CAN BE THE SOURCE OF CLEAN ENERGY.

Comments concerning machine "METOZ"
"METOZ" is able to realize the cycle "deflection" and the cycle "straighening." Both cycles are in accordance with current physic's laws. "METOZ" as machine can not work and hand over the energy because it would be inconsonant to the law of conservation of energy.
I propose to execute the following intelectual process:
we have found ourselves in the Europe of XVII century. We know the trigonometry in the scope of being occured for "METOZ." We know what is the even-arm lever and moment of force too. Just appeears Mr. Baise Pascal / 1623--1662/ and he publishes his hydraulics law with adequated experiment. All thinkers are sure that this law is correct and quite real. This time someone invents machine "METOZ". Now turn up the following questions:
1/ why the implementation of the cycle "deflection" is impossible?
2/ why the implementation of the cycle "straightening" is impossible?Both groups: opponents and followers of bulding "METOZ" live in XVII--th century and they not know that:
a/ the idea of an "energy" will be introduced into science scarlerly in mid. of XIX century,
b/ the law of conservation of the energy will be exist scarlerly after 1847 y.
QVESTION!!!
WHAT KIND OF RATIONALY ENTERELY / ARGUMENT/ CAN BE DREAMED UP THE OPPONENTS OF BUILDING THE MACHINE "METOZ' IN XVII CENTURY.

Please open GOOgle and klick metozor and after : index of metozor At is site that explains technical details in easy to understand language. Thank you for your time and interest.
Everyone is able to build just the model of METOZ machine and test it. It is not a long shot.It is very easy.
Typical example : http://www.nets.pl/~metozor/for_greenpeace.html

My idea is very difficult for understanding. It is not difficult for engineer - mechanic, who knows very good the Pascal's law and even-arm lever.
So you think we have an energy problem? No, we have a political problem.
I am inventor and owner of Metoz machine invention. Everyone can take absolutely and legitimate the METOZ invention and build the Metoz machine.

hi..
in the future it is very difficult to get solarenergy.becaz now a days the entire world is looking for clean energy i.e,nothing but a solar energy.

Energy is the primary element required for any work. With the revolution in technology, it has been realised to discover new energy resources. At earlier stage the main energy resources were wind, sun and water.

photobioreactors

Photo Bio reactor uses to produce bio diesel from algae. There are many research and development in using Photo bio reactor to produce bio diesel from algae. This is an environment friendly and cost effective system and it can help producing bio diesel which is the best alternative for petroleum diesel. They are cheaper source of producing bio diesel.
