    15kWh/min here fixed that for you;)

    Posted By: joshsThat's enough to be very concerned about
    not for Levi or rossi and co:D
    Genesis, I think you mean 1.03billion BTU's / fortnight or 269 Million Therms per millenium.

    yes, also if we convert it into pure aether energy we then get about 54.89 gh*

    I reckon they could be great for powering trains and boats instead of diesel.

    I agree. I doubt if they would be any good at powering diesel.

    They could help in making biodiesel using wind power generators of course.
    Both trains and ferries don't need to worry about the weight penalty as much as cars
    Depending on how fast the batteries can charge and discharge a large block can be sited on a motorway to charge electric cars as quickly as possible using cheaper overnight electricity (the battery could in theory charge the car at optimum voltage) inner city delivery trucks could also benefit from the battery.

    There are already people replacing the diesel engine / generator combinations in service tractors with batteries.

    Would it not be a better (arguably still awful though) idea to site it OFF a motorway?

    OK, you got me sited near a motorway.
  1.  
    Big conductive stripes and conductive tires. You just drive along the stripes and are charged up while you drive. You also are carrying magnets, there are coils in the Jersey barriers in the center of the roadway, and you are powered by the traffic going the other direction. And vice versa.

    You are my kind of guy. I came up with micro wave beaming 'cat eyes' with the car driving over one getting a burst of microwaves to a rectenna on the vehicle which turns the beam into electricity that supplies a capacitor with energy that it uses to trickle charge batteries.

    Glaser had the idea of beaming microwaves to earth from a geosynchronous orbit with a better than 90% efficiency 40 years ago, so a foot or two to a vehicle should give at least that efficiency.

    Presumably the "rectenna" is on the "bottom" of the vehicle? (nudge, nudge...)
