Energy independence turns the gears of the visionary’s imagination, and grants us individual control of our modern lives. No meaningful alternative to the Crown’s system can be achieved without exploring decentralized energy production and storage.
in this video I test out a 5000 BTU air conditioner with 150 watts of Harbor Freight solar panels, 352 amp hours of deep cycle batteries, and a power inverter to demonstrate how well you can run a 5000 BTU air conditioner on this equipment. Off Grid
Million in Its First Year...It has been one year since the world's largest lithium ion battery was switched on in South Australia to combat costly statewide power outages - and this new report shows that it has performed astonishingly well.
Marin Katusa of Katusa Research is an oil and uranium analyst. He gave his take last year on oil and uranium prices. Oil will remain range bound and Uranium prices will recover but in 2 to 5 years from last year. This means in 2020 to 2023.
Leaked documents show Tesla plans to build small Model Y SUV at Gigafactory 1 by the end of 2020 and another production line in the China Gigafactory a few months later. It will have a third-row seat. The timeline is outdated. It seems that the actua
with zero tailpipe emissions...Israeli-Australian company Electriq Global's new technology stabilizes hydrogen in a recyclable liquid that can be pumped and transported just like gasoline. That's huge news, because it enables long-range electric dri
Elon Musk's Gigafactory is arguably the most important thing that Tesla makes. The 1.9 million-square-foot factory in Sparks, Nevada, is only 30 percent complete, but it's already on track to make 60 percent of the world's lithium ion batteries
Rivian R1T takes aim at Tesla - R1T pickup will debut in Los Angeles, in the fall of 2020. Rivian's truck will have a range of up to about 400 miles. Prices start at just under $70,000 before federal tax credits
Terrestrial Energy is leading the way to getting regulatory approvals for its molten salt fission reactor design and has built up an industrial board representing 10 of the largest Nuclear Reactor companies for advice it on its path to market.
After first adding to its line of electric two- and three-wheelers with a four-wheeled variant a couple of years ago, Canada's Daymak has followed up with another electrified all-terrain vehicle. After making some refinements, the new 4WD Beast ATV U
Could your home one day be powered by patches of mushrooms? Probably not, but scientists have nonetheless created a "bionic mushroom" that does indeed generate electricity – and it may pave the way for more practical bio-electric systems.
Combining the unique strengths of lithium batteries with crazy-fast charging, carbon ultra-capacitors could save a ton of weight and add significant range and power to electric vehicles, according to Nawa Technologies.
What's the most common event most of us have to deal with, at least on a short-term basis? Power outages! Not only do they happen alone, but an extended blackout often follows many other major disasters.
Physicists from the University of Tokyo have generated the strongest controllable magnetic field ever produced at 1200 Tesla. The field was sustained for longer than any previous field of a similar strength.
