sulfur battery tech?

How Inexpensive Must Energy Storage Be for Utilities to Switch to 100 Percent Renewables?

MIT researchers list the energy storage technologies that could enable a 100 percent renewable grid


Another viable technology is flow batteries that would use abundant, low-cost chemicals to store energy in large tanks. But not all flow battery chemistries are inexpensive. One of the main types, vanadium redox flow batteries, have an estimated cost of $100/kWh, the researchers say, but more development could bring down costs.

Chiang is betting on sulfur batteries. He has recently developed an aqueous sulfur flow battery that could cost as little as $10/kWh. The technology has what it takes for long-duration, low-cost storage, and is now being developed by Form Energy, a company he co-founded in 2017 and that has recently gotten extensive financial backing.

There are other battery technologies to keep an eye on. High-temperature sodium-sulfur batteries cost $500/kWh, but with more development, their costs could fall by up to 75 percent by 2030, according to the International Renewable Energy Agency. Meanwhile, the cost of sodium nickel chloride batteries could fall from $315 to $490/kWh at present to $130 to $200/kWh by 2030.

the regal type of crown or the dental ones?
 

just the thought of the queen having a "grill" made me laugh - one could do a bit on that

a couple of things:

manbird swears the queen has wooden teeth

and he's on the lower back (not bad for an irish lad and amateur phrenologist)


i've also tagged wikipedia to amend the crown's page to specify that particular sparkly is on loan from mbe

it's going to take a multifaceted approach

for example the poorest places on earth, the places where people need energy to lift them out of grinding extreme poverty

those just happen to be some of the sunniest places on the planet

currently for them the first logical step might be solar

the cost of pv energy conversion/generation is falling at a very rapid rate (see perskovite and swanson's law, etc.)

storage is definitely a challenge and relatively inefficient, but battery tech is progressing

the huge issue for solar is larger urban areas (the engineering presentation i saw used tokyo as an example)

short of some super breakthrough, there's no way solar is going to do the job in an area like that

dense population requires a dense on demand energy source

couple that with the trend of people moving or relocating to lager cities and we can get the idea

small mass produced nuclear (something like lftr) is clearly much better suited for such situations

the technology is fairly well understood and there's a lot of increasing activity in this area

for very obvious reasons we need a lot more inexpensive energy

Here try this ...

and lastly ...

The Origin of Crude Oil or Petroleum: Biotic or Abiotic?

It's been well talked about here over 10 years ago.  It was dismissed then as who haw.  Things have changed since then.

https://radioparadise.com/community/forum/topic/5371


 
Looked at the Nature article. Yeah, it has absolutely nothing to do with the formation of petroleum deposits. If people want to faff around with figuring out how you can form commercial deposits of long-chain hydrocarbons out of mantle material in areas least likely to have transport up from those depths, fine. Not to mention all other evidence like isotopes that this isn't the mechanism. But it is on their back to put forward a credible paradigm rather than merely taking pot-shots and expecting everyone else to take them seriously.
