FREE AS A BIRD - It is happening. Wind energy is providing bucket loads of power that will be more useful with the kind of load leveling that battery and green hydrogen storage can provide, to make better use of all that captured natural muscle. Windmills and sails had been working for mankind for hundreds of years before the discovery of electricity. These graceful machines can be located in isolated areas where winds are strong and reliable. Making allowance for storms, doldrums, and power blackouts, by design.
ABOUT TOKYO ELECTRIC POWER COMPANY
Japan’s biggest power company Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) registered $55.36bn of revenue in the year ending December 2018. The company’s
electricity sales volume during the period stood at 239.9TWh.
According to their website, TEPCO is aimed at these goals;
Develop renewable energy, concentrating on overseas
hydro power generation, domestic and overseas offshore wind power generation which
they consider to be the most promising.
Aim to reach a profit level of around 100 billion Yen for a overall development scale of 6 to 7 GW domestic and abroad.
OPEN INNOVATION PLATFORM
The TEPCO Group utilizes revolutionary technologies, services, and ideas in order to create new value and find solutions for the issues faced by the company and the society in general.
In particular, they are promoting the use of the "open innovation" methods, which allow them to bring in new technologies and ideas from various companies, startups, researchers, research institutes, and other sources around the world in order to create new value and find solutions for the issues they cannot solve on their own in a timely fashion
But in 2022, they still have no solution to power cuts and blackouts, causing major disruption in the modern age of electricity - putting the lives of young, vulnerable and infirm at risk. Also raising the question of this company failing to meet Paris climate objectives aimed at Net Zero - where reliability is a key factor in reaching United Nations' Sustainability Development Goals. Especially SDG7 clean, affordable energy for all, and SDG17, partnerships, such as with automotive OEMs, where the supply of energy for transport is their responsibility, as much as motor manufacturers have a duty to provide zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) - meaning electrics, as a solution that has finally come of age. But where is the infrastructure to make this happen?
Power companies and automotive OEMs need to work together urgently, if they are going to stand any chance of catering for EVs by 2050. They have no chance at all at present levels of cooperation and forward planning - of meeting the targets set for 2030 by policy makers. They are far too comfortable, knowing they can give politicians the run around with manifold excuses from spin doctors - who are employed by climate deniers - to keep burning carcinogenic coal, diesel and petrol.
In the process, they are making their countries vulnerable to suppliers of energy who have grown wealthy enough from fossil fuel exports, to wage war in 2022.
According to Power-Technology.com, a website that provides market and customer insights in this sector, they listed these power companies (according to the 2018 Forbes calculation of net market capitalization, assets, sales and profit) as the biggest utilities:
National Energy Board (Canada)
National Grid plc (formerly Central Electricity Generating Board UK)
FROM SPACE EXPLORATION TO ZERO EMISSIONS - Developed to power satellites and spacecraft, the silicon solar panel is now a cost effective way of generating clean electricity. Ideal sites for the location of solar farms is land that cannot be used for farming, such as the deserts we have created.
