Future Energy eNews











Check out our new post-conference annual feature below that summarizes the Eleventh IRI Conference on Future Energy. I was about to list the best presentations for you but there were so many that it is worth getting the whole set if you missed attending COFE11.


Another note is the upcoming Association of Energy Engineers annual conference which will be in DC next month. I will be presenting there, at the Washington Convention Center Sept. 26 around 9 AM. Here is my one-minute video summary if you are interested  


While Bill Gates recently expressed an interest in sending dust into the upper atmosphere to temporarily block sunlight and perhaps cool the global warming trend (which has lots of environmental and health hazards associated with it), our truly exciting Story #1 offers the FIRST true breakthrough in carbon capture that is clean, inexpensive, and can be scaled upward to perhaps billions of tons someday. With the discovery of a special cerium oxide catalyst and cerium nanoparticles, CO2 can now be reduced to solid carbon (“turning CO2 back into coal”) at room temperature. Published in Nature Communications the authors make it clear that “Negative carbon emission technologies are critical for ensuring a future stable climate.” International policy leaders around the world should take note and start working on bringing the 410 ppm of CO2 back down to 290 ppm or below (the max for the past 420 kY) as soon as possible with this technology.


Story #2 reiterates what an MIT Study reported over ten years ago: that the US is a hotbed for geothermal energy utilization. Now even the USDOE is promoting its “GeoVision Report” in spite of the lack of support from the current administration. It is worth reviewing the latest information, especially as we transition to the widespread need for more cooling as well as heating, since geothermal energy generates electricity.


Story #3 is another energy breakthrough that could easily have been our lead article. Professors from Stanford have been able to develop a battery that taps into salt gradients. The technology could work any place where fresh and saltwater intermix. Wastewater treatment, as a case study, is energy-intensive, accounting for about three percent of the total U.S. electrical load. The process – essential to community health – is also vulnerable to power grid shutdowns. Making wastewater treatment plants energy independent would not only cut electricity use and emissions but also make them immune to blackouts – a major advantage in places such as California, where recent wildfires have led to large-scale outages. However, the invention can work anywhere in the world where salt and fresh water meet, similar to Osmotic Energy Generation but without any membrane.


Story #4 reflects the IRI interest in maintaining awareness of bioenergetics research with a new neuron electrical model that offers distinct dynamics of information transport in the brain.


Story #5 is a spreading phenomenon that piggybacks electric vehicle use and energy storage, which has already been pioneered on small islands with limited electrical grids. In the UK, the National Grid predicts that millions of electric cars can serve as grid batteries if connected into smart charging systems that can use a portion of the car’s electrical battery energy storage for supplementing and balancing the energy demand on the grid, while economizing renewable energy and saving customers money.


Onward and upward!

1) Improved Carbon Capture turns CO2 into Energy Storage Material


Turning carbon dioxide back into coal | RMIT University


Carbon dioxide (CO2) can be transformed back into carbon at a minimal energy cost thanks to a new catalyst reported by researchers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) in their recent Nature Communications article.

Carbon dioxide emitted by human activity is a critical factor in accelerating climate change, and must be addressed to reduce the resulting harmful impacts of rising sea levels and extreme weather. In an attempt to arrest emissions, carbon capture and storage projects have been initiated around the world that aim to trap CO2 at power plants and store it in deep geological formations, but there are concerns about the CO2 leaking back into the atmosphere. This new discovery by Torben Daeneke and Kourosh Kalantar-Zadeh transforms dissolved CO2 into solid carbon, which could be stored more easily or even used as an energy storage material.





2) Sky is the Limit For Geothermal Energy Study Finds


With all attention focused on the plummeting prices and soaring popularity of solar and wind, geothermal energy is probably under-appreciated. Sure, you might think, it’s great where you can get it—in, say, Iceland or the Geysers area of California—but those are exceptions, right? Not entirely. Geothermal power sources come in many forms, and they're typically much more subtle than steam shooting out of the ground. In reality, geothermal energy could be a big player in our future mix.

That is made clear by the US Department of Energy’s recently released “GeoVision” report. The report follows similar evaluations of wind, solar, and hydropower energy and leans on information from national labs and other science agencies. It summarizes what we know about the physical resources in the US and also examines the factors that have been limiting geothermal’s deployment. Overall, the report shows that we could do a whole lot more with geothermal energy—both for generating electricity and for heating and cooling—than we currently do.




3) Stanford Develops Battery to Harness Energy from Seawater


Salt is power. It might sound like alchemy, but the energy in places where salty ocean water and freshwater mingle could provide a massive source of renewable power. Stanford researchers have developed an affordable, durable technology that could harness this so-called blue energy.


The paper, recently published in American Chemical Society’s ACS Omega, describes the battery and suggests using it to make coastal wastewater treatment plants energy-independent.


“Blue energy is an immense and untapped source of renewable energy,” said study coauthor Kristian Dubrawski, a postdoctoral scholar in civil and environmental engineering at Stanford. “Our battery is a major step toward practically capturing that energy without membranes, moving parts or energy input.”



4) Neuron Inspired Electrical Model Goes Quantum


An electrical circuit inspired by the functionality of a neuron can operate in the quantum regime, according to recent models by a team of scientists from Spain and China. The researchers found that the distinct dynamics of information transport through a neuron are preserved when the signal is fully quantized. This merging of brain-function inspired networks and quantum informatics could lead to enhanced computing systems, as well as benefit growing research fields such as quantum machine learning.



5) Electric Cars Could Form Battery Hubs to Store Renewable Energy


A fleet of 35m electric vehicles could help the UK reach its net-zero carbon target by forming large battery hubs to store renewable energy, according to the country’s energy system operator.

National Grid predicts that by 2050 millions of electric cars will use wind and solar power to charge up within minutes to act as battery packs for when the grid needs more energy.

The grid operator’s long-range energy forecasts predict that smart charging systems will use algorithms to help cars balance demand and supply on the grid, while making the most of renewable energy and saving customers money.
