FREE AS A BIRD - It is happening. Wind energy is providing bucket loads of power that will be more useful with the kind of load leveling that battery and green hydrogen storage can provide, to make better use of all that captured natural muscle. 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. Making allowance for storms, doldrums, and power blackouts, by design.
Headquartered in London, National Grid PLC (NGG) is a multinational electricity and gas utility company with principal activities in the U.K. and Northeastern U.S. The company owns and maintains the high-voltage electricity transmission network in England and Wales.8 As the owner and operator of the only gas transmission infrastructure in the U.K., all of the nation's natural gas passes through National Grid's national transmission system. As of 2019, National Grid had approximately 22,000 employees, £15.25 billion in revenue, and a $45.78 billion market capitalization.
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 also members of the UN.
BATTERY CARTRIDGE FORMAT PROPOSAL - This cartridge format provides 0.24 of a meter cubic capacity. All of these formats can be used in multiples to provide up to 1.92 of a cubic meter capacity. This is one of a number of sizes that we will be evaluating as part of a study we hope to obtain funding for.
ABOUT NATIONAL GRID PLC
But in 2022, they still have no solution to power cuts and blackouts, causing major disruption in the modern age of electricity - putting the lives of young, vulnerable and infirm at risk. Also raising the question of this company failing to meet Paris climate objectives aimed at Net Zero - where reliability is a key factor in reaching United Nations' Sustainability Development Goals. Especially SDG7 clean, affordable energy for all, and SDG17, partnerships, such as with automotive OEMs, where the supply of energy for transport is their responsibility, as much as motor manufacturers have a duty to provide zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) - meaning electrics, as a solution that has finally come of age. But where is the infrastructure to make this happen?
Power companies and automotive OEMs need to work together urgently, if they are going to stand any chance of catering for EVs by 2050. They have no chance at all at present levels of cooperation and forward planning - of meeting the targets set for 2030 by policy makers. They are far too comfortable, knowing they can give politicians the run around with manifold excuses from spin doctors - who are employed by climate deniers - to keep burning carcinogenic coal, diesel and petrol.
In the process, they are making their countries vulnerable to suppliers of energy who have grown wealthy enough from fossil fuel exports, to wage war in 2022.
According to Power-Technology.com, a website that provides market and customer insights in this sector, they listed these power companies (according to the 2018 Forbes calculation of net market capitalization, assets, sales and profit) as the biggest utilities:
National Energy Board (Canada)
National Grid plc (formerly Central Electricity Generating Board UK)
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.
