Re: E-M:/ criminalizing and bureaucratizing wind power



Friends & Robert, 
While it may be difficult, there are numerous ways of storing the energy that isn't used.  Just got to move out of the box a bit.   Some of the techniques will be fraught with their own problems.  Never-the-less it might be useful for EnviroMichers to start a list of storage options:
        1 Pumping H20 into elevated reservoirs
        2 Conversion of H2O to H2
        3  Used with eutectic salts for heat storage
        4  Make ice for 
        5  Check with the green engineers who built a home with an insulated basement full of earth that was heated via solar energy during July-Sept (why not excess wind electricity) that successfully heats the home from Oct - Mid April & is off the grid
    6
Let's get outside the box:>)
Regards,
Chuck

The sad thing is
    • that wind power has a major drawback compared conventional energy generation methods -- it can not be generated upon demand.  You can only get wind energy when the wind is blowing, and there's no way to store energy that isn't used.
