« Innovation of the Year Winner Nanosolar Ships Its First Low-Cost Solar Panels | Main | Turning Manure Into Power »


Ari Tapper

In reading this concept and based on our experience of the leaching of gas and chemicals stored within "Geological Formations", I cannot understand why anyone would believe they can store the gas indefinitely. What about effects of siesmic activity? Looks like this concept does not address the same major complication all combustion based energy sources experience - what to do with the spent fuel.


Great comment Ari. How do we know that these are airtightly sealed? And what about it's effects deep down in the earth? We'd really be just making a huge underground bubble of poisinous gas (which seems like it would happily collapse). There's no way to get it to disappear, you _have_ to find a way to neutralize it.


IGCC and Hydrogen turbines, I believe this plant configuration would be. However the key question is that the cost or $/kW of this project and how far the CO2 price would sway the econimics. Otherwise, it's a project that will have a tough future to make a decent profit.Going alone without DOE's fully support is an even higher risk.

I think renewable energy is very important if we want to move forward as a country. However I think we are going in the wrong direction. We need to use magnet motors that are over 100% efficient. Some are even 500% efficient. I know this sounds crazy, but we have this technology. It’s just being hidden from you. The Big Energy companies are making $440 billion a year from us. It’s a huge scam. If you would like to see real proof of little guys like me trying to get the word out check out this link.

Thank you, jody

I am agree with this statement Coal is almost the perfect fuel. It is quite right but

Thank you for sharing with us some information about coal power plant. It is a good idea to we know better about power planting. Those materials are perfect for power planting.


Now were multi-tasking! by the use of coal we limit the use of gas, and which also limit products that has been used by this to increase its price.
