Hydrogen storage. Electrolysis?
Micro power plants……sounds expensive and almost like the great leap forward. Requires subsidies.
Iron Man : "Tony Stark, what are you building?" Remember Tron ? – the MCP was monitoring citizens' energy consumption and overcharging many, while suspicious of programmers requiring more energy consumption. At least that is how I remember it.
Nothing new under the sun Egypt had this energy strategy 6000 years ago
is the more hacking facilities like in movies
I love those concepts but I don't like a super government (EU) with unelected technocrats forcing people at gun point and taxes to achieve those concepts.
The problem is that energy in Denmark and Germany is expensive. Im from Denmark and i hate the price of power. It would be nice to have an electric internet, but I would prefer to have nuclear. The problem is that people fear that. But its safer than solar or wind.
Why are you so certain/optimistic about hydrogen as a storage technology? Are there any study? Who would be a good supplier of this systems?
any of this Venus Project ideas? probably, like Teslas ideas powering HAARP
With the money we spend on oil and gas, not counting costs from environmental damage, we could spread this all over. If we wanted to.
Million homes in Germany haha the population of this planet is more than 6 billion+. But we must be optimistic nonetheless.
2:15 Solar wind?!! This proves he doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about.
i wish politicians and businessmen won't be greedy enough to stop this progress.
Amazing , this would be a great solution untill the time we have fusion energy or even more advanced nuclear type energy that can exploit the energy of a simple rock. By the time most planet would have energy internet would be also the dawn of a new era when we discover how to use Fusion and other very advanced tehnologies.
Future is so good.
There's a 3rd predicted type of internet i remember hearing about (besides communication and energy) i cant remember what it is. Can anyone help?
If you can send energy through the internet like data, then does this mean that you copy energy, like you copy files? (Of course this does not quite obey the laws of thermodynamics, but could there be a way round it?)
This is what I'm talking about! In a beautiful future, most buildings produce electricity and nobody has to pay for it. Imagine how much money that would leave in people's pockets! I think we could also do the same thing with food distribution… a food internet? Seems like it's a century away, but how about many small, local food sharing networks for starters. Imagine using one room in your home to raise a few crops and bartering them with trusted co-enthusiasts on the web.
Pfft. Drill baby drill! The 19th century is awesome!
Can anyone link to something about storing energy in Hydrogen?
i like his accent
The problem is, what happens when many facilities need large amount of energy at the same time? Is it safe to guarantee that there will always be enough?
"The energy internet is very, very new" – As a concept this is misleading.Buckminster-Fuller envisioned this almost 50 years ago. Corporate led politics made sure it didn't happen because it wasn't as good a return as fossil fuels when no intrinsic monetary value is applied to them make a very few owners very wealthy indeed at the real cost of us all. We should have moved much further by now to have averted the onset of climate change.
'Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth' – 1969. R. Buckminster-Fuller.
"The fossil fuel deposits of our Spaceship Earth correspond to our automobile’s storage battery which must be conserved to turn over our main engine’s self-starter. Thereafter, our" main engine," the life regenerating processes, must operate exclusively on our vast daily energy income from the powers of wind, tide, water, and the direct Sun radiation energy."
Trust in money, misdirected greed and listening to our intuitions instead of looking at the evidence with our intelligence has been our greated failing. There's not much new in the world, even ancient man realised that greed is not a virtue – maybe it could be if directed at the sun?
guys guys, do you hear what he is saying? that's fucking incredible. it might change the whole world forever. it's insane.
cool video! Thanks Big Think
Yet another cool thing that will never come to America because it would cost someone money to do 😀
this was all great, then he said NEURAL network at the very end. How are these internetworks related to neural networks? or is he just throwing buzzwords at us?
too bad internet neutrality is dead
Fucking thank god, about time someone figured a way to generate energy without draining finite resources.
Need more people like this.
Ok, let’s not forget smart billing. Cars using batteries are cheaper for the first thirty to sixty miles as plug in vehicles for your daily commute. So, for the rest of the day they could plug in at work requiring either less batteries or more storing capacity during peak green energy. For instance store the energy from your solar paneled home on your car plugged in at work. Although hydrogen is not cost effective, combined with batteries on a car it is comparable to gasoline. Billing or crediting the mobile car battery rather than the home or building owner is a major part of solving this puzzle that should be mentioned and not overlooked.
Why does this guy not talk about the failures of the German green energy programme?
