About: Which Power Source Is Most Efficient?
People who want to force green energy down peoples throat don’t think how it can affect third world countries. They can’t afford it and therefore have no power. Would you rather reduce a little co2 or help people get out of poverty? I know I’d rather pick helping people
You gotta get your variables right first.
For example, how much energy does it take for the water to be vapourized into the atmosphere, travel through the sky, and the fall to the lake to be used by the plant?
Or, how much energy was required to turn biomass into carbohydrates that we use?
Nuclear energy is the only way to go. PERIOD. F
Any energy proposal that does not included large proportions of nuclear power is doomed to failure. It's just math.
I live in the Philippines
Solar power is best in Philippines because solar power works on tropical countries
all the video is full of misinformation
Nuclear! Especially if you have enough of them spread around the populated areas of the planet and they all explode simultaneously.
That doesn't mean anything at all. There are more parts to the equation than efficinecy
Solar and Wind related Energy is too intermittent & unreliable to be factored in as base load ; it's too inefficient on the Grid.
Power Factor Correction and Sine Wave Stability are problems that "renewable energy supporters" tend to ignore...
ALL OF THE ABOVE!!!!!
Capacity factor is what matters. Wind around 40%..nuclear 90%.
It’s only less than 50% efficient when the sun doesn’t shine. So 50% of the 46% is 23%. Real problem is the storage, if the super capacitors get developed, the wind and solar may have a chance since the storage is thereby available.... power must be readily available whenever it is needed... like at nigh when we need to turn on the lights.
What about petroleum and natural gas??
does the Nuke efficiency # include refining the radioactive uranium or whatever they use? Also the next 10k years of maintaining the waste. and the gas efficiency includes well-to-turbine energy consumption? Manufacturing panels and turbines (and dams) is consumes energy too I understand.
Nuclear is only safe so long as it is properly maintained and well not hit by a natural disaster. Given the context of raising temps and sea level building Nuclear reactors on the cost line which is almost definitely gonna raise in the next 100 years is just plain suicidal and genocidal. Lets take a moment to imagine that we fail our emissions goals or the pace of progress is constantly being stalled and held back. So sea level rises and floods these reactors and surrounding areas what do you think will happen then? Oh wait we already saw this Fukushima , Chernobyl, SL-1.W know that the radiation will continue to pollute those areas for hundreds of years to come. We all know why coal plants are bad but at excess heat could be used to power sterling engines just with the temp differential to add to efficiency and we could use bio mass instead of coal to maintain carbon neutrality. This concept could even be down-scaled to supplement energy in a homes heating system. Again solar on every rooftop will go a long way towards meeting our energy requirements for a post oil world. Also Vertical wind turbines have proven to be more efficient and far safer to the local wildlife. Put a couple on every roof alone with those panels. We can also scale down hydro electric to work with rain water collection systems in buildings as another form of supplemental power. Simply have 2 water collection tanks and a pump connecting them. Basically when it rains all the water that hits your roof will be directed to a basement water tank, then a pump will push the water to a water tank in the attic or roof stored as potential energy like a battery. If lets say its been a very damp week and solar output was weak your still gonna get power from wind possibly more than usual during a storm and lots of rain fall to. Of course you could also incorporate that rain water into your pluming if you include a proper filtration and purifying stage. Whats most important is having enough battery storage for the home or businesses needs, and having enough sources of passive energy production to meet the daily demand. As you may be able to tell I am very anti grid lock energy. I believe that energy is absolutely everywhere. In fact everything in the universe is just a state of energy. All we need to figure out is how to use it or how to change its state of energy to a state we can use. SO I heavily advocate for micro grids. That concept alone will give us far more freedom from our huge range of power issues with the current infrastructure. Another passive energy generator is the electrostatic motor which uses static electricity to push a turbine. Thunderstorms are perfect for this generator because lightning charges the air with huge static fields. And of course given the power crisis its just as important to make every kind of technology and appliance as efficient as possible to lower our demand for power.

I notices he talk solely on efficiency not how much power is actually generated by these methods showing the burning of fossil fuels in nuclear reactors as being bad because they are less efficient at collecting the energy not how much energy they are actually collecting from these methods.
just hunt for electric eel and reproduce them
😡 I hate YouTubers that have to edit zoom in on things the that average viewer can easily see! They really think their audience is under age and has Toddler Level Attention Spans. And usually it's Digital Zoom anyway so the picture quality gets Worse! I think I blame Pewdiepie for starting this trend a while back in I'd say 2012. And seriously I'm a bit of a Screen Slave but when you quickly zoom in and out on like this, it Strains my Eyes Harder than bright Strobelights! If all consumers weren't using VR Goggles as their everyday TV/Monitor, we would all be suffering from "Motion Sickness" just like Totalbiscuit Did! 😔
