    All over the world, storage technologists and battery pioneers are looking for ways to store renewable energy. From developing fast batteries to storing heat in basalt and salt.

    The development of renewable energy generation is moving fast, but one of the biggest challenges of the energy transition is storage. Efficient and effective storage is necessary to cope with peaks and troughs in solar and wind power generation. All over the world, storage engineers and battery pioneers are looking for ways to store renewable energy. From developing high-speed batteries to storing heat in basalt and salt. And from the use of iron powder as an energy carrier to gigantic block towers that store and release energy by hoisting concrete blocks. VPRO Documentary explores the new storage possibilities.

    Originally broadcasted in The Netherlands on 7 February 2021.

💯 But even with Thorium the electric fleet will still rely on batteries, Thorium provides the energy, but you still need some way to store it. Of course there is still the alternative of synthetic fuels produced with Thorium energy, which is arguably the more eco friendly alternative

I agree - Basalt looks brilliant - so simple and green compared to mining hazardous battery materials (cobalt) - shipping - manufacturing - constructing into megapacks - maintaining - 10 year life - recycling (maybe)....keep in mind the basalt application was primarily for supplying heat - not for managing a power grid or powering a car

I don't think so Money Grip - my car is electric, I power my house with solar, my cottage with wind and solar is completely off grid, I own a software company, just converted my golf cart to solar, did my mechanical engineering thesis on wind power for residential use....I could go on...but I do think there are many possible solutions to the challenge of energy storage - and solutions that use simple technology, simple, few and inexpensive materials, last for 100 years and is sustainable and neutral environmentally is probably worth a look

How much energy do you need to heat the basalt. How much heat does a householder actually use? In all these stories they do not tell you the energy in and energy out. With batteries, the efficiency is very high. The batteries can be recycled. The only hang-ups are: The energy to mine the minerals. the energy used in creating the batteries. I believe that the energy equation for batteries is better than most of these experiments. However, it is good that the experimentation is going on. Perhaps several practical and green solutions can be found.

These solutions to produce mechanical energy are interesting but they all involve a lot of wasted energy (to build the potential charge). I don't believe this is the way to go.

For more than 60 years (1963 to be exact), the cover of Popular Mechanics has bleated "the breakthrough in battery technology" and it hasn't happened yet. LiPo's and their cousins all require mining and smelting of Lithium salts, a highly toxic and energy intensive process, taking 30 times as much electricity as the batteries made from the lithium in them can ever provide back. (Read a book about battery technology.) Rechargeables don't work, and primary batteries (one use) can't work either, except for submarines using saltwater for electrolyte (unlimited supply-DUH!). Mechanical flywheels are the best "storage solution" for energy, but they are terrible. Tesla's induction coils have been ignored for 90 years-I wonder why???

@Uncanny Valley that why I pumped more C02 into my grow rooms when I had a licence to grow weed. The results were usually around 25% more weight and production...a hundred years ago farmers had much lower crop yields.? Do you suppose that's because their was way less C02 in the atmosphere....

Capitalists only build things that profit their bottom line. Innovators look to get the most benefit for the most people in the most efficient ways.

We need the smart engineers to study and max out the ability of Capacitors and Resistors to store all of our solar, wind and geothermal energy that can be safely discharged for all residential and commercial entities. Instead of building large central physical units for the masses, we need smaller units the can be installed on all new construction. Capacitors of the size necessary to power a house for a night or a week or a winter or for all HVAC needs could be local and subsidized. Putting solar panels on the roof is not the answer. Storing energy electrically is what we need. Just think, we have all kinds of high voltage wire running throughout the world. Having rectifiers to create DC from this AC and creating capacitance shoaled be set up between all of our high voltage delivery systems at the street level. There are many ways to store energy, including electrolysis of salt water (plentiful on all coastlines) and put into better researched hydrogen tanks that are stored underground in all new construction. With a proton exchange membrane, the electricity from this hydrogen could be used for individual residences and for fuel for automobiles, trucks, etc. This same procedures could be used alongside of railroad tracks to change motion into electricity as well as for storage for hydrogen. The value of Diesel power for trains is wasted rather than turned into electrolysis for current storage via capacitors or hydrogen storage is enormous. All of our highways could also be turned into generation facilities. We need leadership that is innovative. We need research funded to create this new era where motion creates energy with copper coils, electrolysis, creation of hydrogen from something other than fossil fuels such as dirty crude oil fuels.

One aspect of electric vehicles that presents an extreme danger. even for the occupants is Electrical fires. A fire in an electric-powered vehicle is not like any other fire. Besides which there are lethal high voltages involved. It is unlikely that that 99.7% of electric vehicle owners have given this risk factor any thought at all. When the vehicle occupants are burned to death that will significantly add to the Carbon footprint when the occupants become toast.

this is the only real obstacle holding back the viability of electric cars and electric tech in general. A better battery is super important. for cars its actually really simple you need either a really high capacity or extremely fast charging, personally i would root for capacity because it would tie into a lot more than cars but charge time being fast would work too. just being able to drive a full day one 1 charge would be a game changer tho and i bet so many people would transition in that case. also i dont totally agree with people charging their cars being a strain on the system, think about it the car is plugged in charging, person wakes up goes to work, it charges a bit in the morning and its full by 10am to noon and is no longer comsuming energy by peak time but thats just 1 use case.

Electric cars will have 700-1500 km range as it is much cheaper to make high capacity battery than one which can be safely quick chargerd. The next generation li-ion batteries are built around their separator with dry powder coating methods. No more solvent slurries and foil coating. That will open the door to super fast production and we’ll have first genuine TeraFactories online by 2025.

Energy is already stored in the mineral resource Oil and Gas and is available on demand; can be transported anywhere its needed. and turned on in seconds. Nuclear Generation is a battery of varying degree. It is the cleanest least pollutant source of energy we have ever come across and delivers on demand in every climate we need it. and the only reason why it isn't more prevalent. is the mandated costs associated with its implementation, that drastically increases its price into being competitive in the market. People watch Simpsons and think that's Nuclear power. That's not reality. That's called programs of propagandizeation. Nuclear plants are so good, they continue to operate decades after their obsolescence period. Those who deal in the regenerating mineral known as Oil and Gas, don't want Nuclear; because 150 years ago specifically in America; Corporatism through lobbying for extortion and using the force of a gun to interfere in markets for profit was established. Nuclear makes all other sources of electricity as relevant as Horse now are to modern transportation. We don't live in a world where the good of the people are what is put first. We don't live in a world where value's creation is put first. We live in a world where the only goal is to ensure the plundering, and willingness to be plunder of the people in order to instill comfortable lives for the democracy makers.

Give the weights a golf ball-like texture to increase the accuracy in the wind. Highway Heavy Truck Traffic could supply huge amounts of electricity at a relatively low cost. This would eliminate the weather problems. In mountainous regions Sleds in Tunnels going down with counterweight being pulled up the other side. Once up the grade, the sled is released back. Sled has the magnetic tech and a cable generating. Controlled decent with heavy trucks will be much safer and save on brake wear as well. The Grapevine in California and countless others would generate untold amounts of energy. Anutek Developments Inc. is visionary in its approach to finding solutions that are synergistic and fit the needs of a flourishing planet and an evolved Humanity as stewards to create the best version of what HUman potential can accomplish in a free capital market with adjusted prioritized profit goals and rewards. These new capital-free adjusted priorities add near-infinite demand and abundant profit instruments that eliminate funding shortages for all solutions that move Humanity and the planet to peace, and wealth to colonize space and have zero waste and controlled climate symbiosis. Complete end to the manipulation of Human potential and planetcide to supply the labor and resources.
