Re: “John Blackburn on renewable energy

Thank you Dr. Blackburn.
In addition, the utility industry is ignoring storage technologies that already exist such as compressed air, pump storage and stationary hydrogen generation. For instance, while the wind turbines generate electricity at night when there is low demand, they can be producing hydrogen which can in turn be used to power generators during peak hours.

Also being ignored is the fact that homeowners with installed solar energy systems have battery backup systems storing energy that can collectively contribute to the grid, essentially creating a distributed "baseload" to replace the centralized coal and nuclear boondoggles. In this way combined wind and solar can very realistically provide 100% of NC's power in a very short period of time, if we have a concerted effort similar to the Apollo Project or as if we were re-tooling for a war- Something we need to do to create a new industrial revolution with millions of new jobs, while we end our dependency on foreign oil, dangerous, destructive mining and potential nuclear catastrophe.
