Five reasons why green energy won’t replace the fossil-fuel powered grid

Aren’t green technologies the solution to replacing the fossil-fuel powered grid? There are significant challenges that current green energy needs to overcome to provide a competitive advantage over the fossil fuel powered grid;

1.) Performance: Green energy simply does not outperform traditional grid energy generation methods. Half the time it is night and often the wind is calm. Even with conservation and improvements in usage efficiency the lack of green energy’s performance with its inconsistent reliability make green energy mere supplements to the traditional power grid.

2.) Size: In order to produce a competitive level of energy, a solar array or wind turbine needs to be quite large. Large solar arrays and large wind turbines are not practical everywhere.

3.) Storage: Saving green-energy for use at night or when the wind is calm is not yet practical. Small-scale storage is often adequate but not so in large-scale applications.

4.) Centralization: Are large, centralized, generation locations better? Distant wind farms or large solar array installations that send energy over a fragile network are subject to man-made and natural disruptions. The cost of maintaining this infrastructure is significant.

5.) Fluctuation of supply and demand: The grid often has excess supply or excess demand and the two are difficult to properly balance. Many have suggested that smart-grids are the answer to try to balance supply and demand. Smart-grids are an improvement but the probability of peak demand and peak green-energy generation occurring simultaneously are low and is not a sustainable solution when the goal is fossil fuel replacement.

The good news; green-energy’s five challenges can be overcome. Imagine if each user was off the grid, could increase their consumption and could generate on-site, abundant clean energy in exactly the quantity they need, when they need it, in the night or on calm days. No wasted surplus, no shortages, no chance of widespread disruptions with an overall more efficient system that eliminates energy’s impact on the environment. Independent Energy’s P6G overcomes all of the challenges now facing green-energy.

We are looking for a critical thinking visionary not afraid to venture beyond what conventional wisdom has set as the boundaries.

Connecting the dots of green-energy takes critical thinking that is “outside the thermodynamics box” ™

Independent Energy has discovered a new method of energy generation that will outperform fossil fuels. Looking for critical thinkers who want to join us in changing how the world creates, distributes and consumes energy.

Carbon Emission Elimination – Why We Need to Look at New Ideas

The world won’t ever find a permanent, sustainable solution to the problems with carbon emissions if they accept the idea that we have already found the solution. All the solutions we have today only mitigate the problem and include the premise that we use too much energy. The solution we need to continue to look for will work better than fossil fuel in every comparison category. It needs to be cheaper, more reliable, more portable and more scalable than fossil fuel with zero emissions at the tailpipe or at any point in its creation. The better solution won’t contain the premise that mandates us to use less, to sacrifice or cut back on usage. Instead, a better solution will allow for an increase and expansion of energy consumption. An abundance of zero emission, green energy will enable industrialized nations to expand their economies and will enable hundreds of millions to increase their lifestyle with access to energy for the first time. When a proposed solution has the potential to so positively disrupt the current status quo, it is something that should be looked at. If a technology can do this, its acceptance by the market will be swift without the need for incentives, subsidies or any artificial interference. 

I realize that it takes an investment of time to properly evaluate any inventor’s claims. Time is of course money.  However, even it takes 10,000 attempts, the effort is not a failure if one way that will work is discovered. As Thomas Edison once said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”  

The opportunity exists for a high-net worth visionary to discover the solution that will eliminate carbon emissions completely. This visionary could form a group of critical thinking gatekeepers who embrace concepts that question our basic assumptions of how and why we create, distribute and consume energy, who won’t let their education, pride or ego prevent them from being open to new ideas. Then when an idea with potential is discovered, this visionary will have the opportunity to change the world. Until someone is willing to look at 10,000 or more ideas that don’t work… we will likely never discover the one(s) that will. 

Are there diamonds in-the-rough out there? I can’t vouch for anyone else’s technology but I personally know that Independent Energy’s would be easy to evaluate and does have the potential to change everything. It is a diamond in-the-rough, potentially the gem that with a little polish, will improve the lives of billions.

For every item in this 1991 Radio Shack Ad, I can now do on my smart phone. In the 2013 ad, there are no innovations. However, is the idea of condensing multiple gadgets into one, really that high-tech or innovative? All of our “high-tech” devices including the internet are all still powered by the same inefficient, thermodynamic energy generation methods started in the 1800’s. Independent Energy has a new idea that can power our devices and the whole world in a green and truly high-tech fashion.
