July 24, 2010 — Electromobility makes sense only if car batteries are charged using electricity from renewable energy sources. But the supply of green electricity is not always adequate. An intelligent charging station can help, by adapting the recharging times to suit energy supply and network capacity. Germany aims to have one million electric vehicles -- powered by energy from renewable sources -on the road by 2020. And, within ten years, the German environment ministry expects "green electricity" to make up 30 percent of all power consumed. Arithmetically speaking, it would be possible to achieve CO 2 -neutral electromobility.
Puuhevonen kirjoitti: Kysehän on nikkelin ja vedyn fuusiosta kupariksi ja se tapahtuu huoneenlämmössä eli reaktion energiakynnys on alhainen. Hyvin toteutettu huijaus jokatapauksessa, koska kukaan ei ole vielä esittänyt oikeastaan mitään viitteitä siitä miksei kyse olisi todellisesta reaktiosta.
A detailed Qualitative Approach to the Cold Fusion Nuclear Reactions of H/Ni « Journal of Nuclear PhysicsBy prof. Christos Stremmenos After several years of apparent inaction, the theme of cold fusion has been recently revitalized thanks to, among others, the work and the scientific publications of Focardi and Rossi, which has been conducted in silence, amidst ironical disinterest, without any funding or support. In fact, recently, practical and reliable results have been achieved based on a very promising apparatus invented by Andrea Rossi. Therefore I want to examine the possibility of further development of this technology, which I deem really important for our planet.

(PhysOrg.com) -- Few areas of science are more controversial than cold fusion, the hypothetical near-room-temperature reaction in which two smaller nuclei join together to form a single larger nucleus while releasing large amounts of energy.
Jan January 17, 2011 | 42 Comments Friday and Saturday, January 14th and 15th of 2011 seem to be a threshold for energy production. Sergio Focardi and Andrea Rossi at the University of Bologna demonstrated and conducted a news conference about their “cold fusion”, or Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) or as they suggest it be called, a “catalyst reaction” energy uprating device. Time will tell to whom goes the technology domain, be it physics or chemistry or even a new field drawing on both.
Italienska forskare säger sig ha en absolut grön energikälla klar för produktion. I förra veckan demonstrerade de apparaten som tycks bygga på kall fusion. (Our coverage in English here and here ). (UPPDATERAD). Inför ett femtiotal inbjudna vetenskapsmän och journalister visade de italienska forskarna Andrea Rossi och Sergio Focardi upp sitt experiment i en industrihangar utanför Bologna i fredags.
Muon-catalyzed fusion ( μCF ) is a process allowing nuclear fusion to take place at temperatures significantly lower than the temperatures required for thermonuclear fusion , even at room temperature or lower. It is one of the few known ways of catalyzing nuclear fusion reactions. Muons are unstable subatomic particles. They are similar to electrons, but are about 207 times more massive. If a muon replaces one of the electrons in a hydrogen molecule, the nuclei are consequently drawn 207 [ 1 ] [ 2 ] times closer together than in a normal molecule.

Photo: Peter Ginter Over the past 50 years, immense progress has been made in the fields of plasma science and fusion technology. Still, harnessing fusion power and delivering it for industrial applications remains one of the greatest challenges of our time. One of the tasks awaiting ITER is to explore fully the properties of super hot plasmas—the environment in which the fusion reaction will occur—and their behaviour during the long pulses of fusion power the ITER machine will enable.
NIF's 192 laser beams travel a long path , about 1,500 meters, from their birth at the master oscillator to the center of the target chamber. As the beams move through NIF's amplifiers, their energy increases exponentially. From beginning to end, the beams' total energy grows from one-billionth of a joule to four million joules, a factor of more than a quadrillion—and it all happens in about five millionths of a second. Every NIF beam starts at the master oscillator (bottom center). The low-energy beam is amplified in the preamplifier module and then in the power amplifier, the main amplifier, and again in the power amplifier before the beam is run through the switchyard and into the target chamber. ( View an animation of the path of a single laser pulse from the master oscillator to the target.) An optical switch is tested in cleanroom conditions in NIF's Optics Assembly Building.
Solar energy collectors are special kind of heat exchangers that transform solar radiation energy to internal energy of the transport medium. The major component of any solar system is the solar collector. This is a device which absorbs the incoming solar radiation, converts it into heat, and transfers this heat to a fluid (usually air, water, or oil) flowing through the collector.
