FREE AS A BIRD - It is happening. Wind energy is providing bucket loads of energy that will be more useful with the kind of load leveling that battery and hydrogen storage can provide, to make better use of all that captured natural power. Windmills and sails had been working for mankind for hundreds of years before the discovery of electricity. These graceful machines can be located in isolated areas where winds are strong and reliable.

 

 

The automotive industry is the biggest in the world with around 1.3 billion cars that are filled up roughly once every two-four weeks with liquid fossil fuels. Now imagine those cars, trucks and buses being recharged using load leveled renewable energy. Revenues from oil and petroleum transfer to power utilities in one of the biggest energy shakeups the world is ever likely to see - and over a very short time period. This is due to happen because we've been superheating the world for years by burning fossil fuels, leading to catastrophic climate change: melting ice caps, acid oceans, species mass murder and desertification.

 

The transfer to alternative energy for transport is technically feasible and could become a reality sooner than you might think, provided that we all (or a sufficient number of us) pull together to make it happen. That includes auto makers whether privately owned or State operated - and generating utilities, that are for the most part State owned. Hence, we need the cooperation of the Nations who own and operate their national grids, meaning policy makers and the politicians in power, who direct policies, most of whom are members of the UN.

Pylons for high voltage transmission distribution of generated electricity via national grids

 

HIGH VOLTAGE - Every country uses high voltage cables to transmit electricity via a grid. mostly over ground using steel pylons. In the UK, OFGEM regulates development of such markets.

 

 

SMARTNET - EV LOAD LEVELLING

 

The developers of the SmartNet EV system do not propose installing their our own wind turbines and solar farms, but that remains a longer term possibility - in working within the industry to help expand the alternatives clean sector. In the interests of expediency, service station operators might purchase electricity from existing power companies, and shop around. This could include a mix of fossil fuel and renewables, the aim being for a transition to 100% renewable electricity as soon as possible.

 

Those companies cooperating with such proposal(s) may have priority options as to power sales, and operating their own load-leveling stations directly.

 

VEHICLE END USERS

 

The general public can only make use of vehicles that are sold by car companies, and service facilities that exist to provide fuels and other garage services. Our objective is to be able to demonstrate that the technology exists to allow the general public to swap their petrol and diesel steeds for clean electrics, without sacrificing convenience. Auto makers then owe a duty of care to their fellow man and planet earth, to produce vehicles that do not produce harmful emissions. Petrol and diesel vehicles should carry a Government health warning.

 

This demands confidence in the vehicles that are being sold. Such confidence may only be provided by EV service stations to equal the convenience of liquid fossil fuel stations. This level of convenience is the basis of our Business Plan. It is sadly lacking in 2020.

 

 

 

STATE OF THE NATIONS - There are a number of cartridge formats at the moment leading to a confused market, and confused motorists. Better Place kicked off with one system, Tesla stalled in 2013, NIO uses a similar under car mounted cartridge and BattSwap and PowerSwap use similar capacity cartridges, with PowerSwap being a side loading system. The point here is that with a standard cartridge, service stations can be provided to recharge trucks, vans and cars. At the moment there are no energy cartridges or service stations for heavy goods vehicles.

 

 

Networked flat pack service stations may be made available to any utility, supermarket or energy trading (brokers) company, but also entrepreneurs who might operate as independent franchises.

 

 

 

FROM SPACE EXPLORATION TO ZERO EMISSIONS - Developed to power satellites and spacecraft, the silicon solar panel is now a cost effective way of generating clean electricity. Ideal sites for the location of solar farms is land that cannot be used for farming, such as the deserts we have created.
