Israeli Technology: Kinetic, Solar, and Turbine Technologies the US and major US Companies should purchase and utilize IMMEDIATELY.

Previously, I had posted this...but Google, in doing maintenance, froze up all blogspot blogs from May 10 - May 12, and then rolled back and erased previously posted blogs dated May 10.  I am re-posting this today,  in a re-edited format.


    This technology has already been tested and passed from the development and testing phase to a ready for application phase.  It is a must for major city streets, Freeway turnpikes or anywhere there is heavy vehicle, train, or pedestrian foot traffic.


Kinetic Energy: Innowatttech

A single 3 to 3.1 mile stretch of road or highway having just 500 heavy trucks pass over its length per hour can produce 1,000 Kilowatts / 1 Megawatt of electric energy per hour. This is enough to power between 250 to 350 homes, and should be considered as a supplemental (not primary) for particular use during peak usage times.  This also tells us that turnpikes, interstates, major city center streets,  trucking terminals or anywhere where there is high heavy vehicle traffic, those places are not only optimum, but the almost exclusive applications of this technology when in highway or urban road systems.

One stretch of railroad of 3 to 3.1  miles having just 300 railroad cars pass over it per hour will produce 600 kilowatts of electricity per hour, or enough power to constantly supply 150 to 210 homes. For some small rural towns, there may be a preference to invest in this kind of technology to supply a more localized power source such as this.  However, such technology, in my opinion,  should also be coupled with wind and solar technology as well. 

It seems to me, that a practical measure of actual expectancy in highways should remain at about 60% of these above figures.  That means, according to my calculations, using a rounding off of every 3 miles of application in busy highways, that we should expect 600 kilowatts of consistency...enough to consistently supply 150 to 210 homes.   However, in railway applications, that figure should remain at 80% expectancy or 480 kilowatts per hour... enough to consistently supply 120 to 168 homes.

30 miles of railway application correctly applied will yield about 4.8 megawatts hourly, day in and day out.
30,000 miles of eventual railway application completed in 10 years time, will result in 4.8 gigawatts of energy per hour each day and every day, year in and year out.  That is enough power to supply 1,200,000 to 1,680,000 homes with all the power they need.   If this is coupled with street / highway application over the course of the same 10 years, then 2,700,000 to 3,780,000 homes can be supplied with this kind of supplemental electric power by the year 2025 (allowing us 3 plus years of bureaucratic red-tape before seeing such an effort launched, if taken up NOW, that is).                                     

 The optimum initial application will probably be in railroad tie replacements in busy train-yards, freight routes.  One suggestion is to utilize this technology in the New York City Subway system to supply power to the Subway network.  In cases of blackout or emergency, battery power storage stations along the route can either keep the lines running, or at least get passenger to safety, and send excess power to designated emergency centers, traffic lights, or what have you. 

Optimum Highway results will probably result from using a higher recycled tire to asphalt ratio, such as is used now in Israel,  and more corrosion resistant than that US formula now in use in Arizona. 

The cost of implementation will be initially high, but can be covered in a self-paying (that is, once it becomes "on-line") with a 5 year loan, cutting the need to raise electricity rates to wherever it services.  It, like wind and solar energy stations, is a supplemental source of energy...but this Kinetic Energy innovation is designed to be made with more environmentally recyclable parts to it once it reaches or surpasses its 20 year design life.   Because of the profit ratio over actual maintenance costs will be quite for the the first 15 years of the 20 year life expectancy before replacement, once the electricity rates are set, they can be essentially retained or frozen at those levels within the set volume of power supply expectancy over the course of the following 10 years.  So that if the usage remains within the preset margin for the area served, there should be no reason other than line usage or a currency value crisis to raise the rates of electricity supplied even modestly.

Solar Energy:  Brightsource

Brightsource is an Israeli venture to help "Green" America's energy sources.  Currently, their program of solar power is the most efficient in the industry.  I would recommend that they be allowed / authorized to build at least 20 more plants in the American Southwest (in Southern California, Nevada, Arizona, southern Utah, New Mexico, and western Texas) at 1 Gigawatt or more per facility.  20 Gigawatts would give the Southwest United States the approximate power (for 300 days a year) of servicing (@ 250,000 to 350,000 homes per Gigawatt), a total of 5,000,000 to 7,000,000 homes for the 300 days (on average) per year. 

Turbine Technology:  for Cars
 (Edited repost from 02.28.2011)

Since 100 mile per gallon technology is available now, why isn't the now US Government owned General Motors etc. using and applying this technology to a new line and fleet of vehicles?    Instead of an electric hybrid, this technology more than doubles the range miles per gallon claimed by the hybrids.  The tradeoff is that for 80% less gas usage, an extra 5 quarts may be needed at the time of the oil change.  The trade off in oil refining (needing to convert hundreds less gallons of gas per vehicle using this technology) and cost savings is MORE than worth it.   

There are very practical solutions that can be fast-tracked and implemented. 
That's my input.
