GLOBAL RESOURCES ANALYSIS
TECHNOLOGIES | THERMAL POWER TECHNOLOGY
Available in a volcanoes water, an ocean water and an arctic water/air based model. The volcanoes water based power generating model uses the by the local earth activities instant available (continue by the volcanoes activities of the area being heated) hot water locations, which can heat water in of iron (or of new glass tech) made water pipes till 100 degrees Celsius. This water becomes steam powers an electricity making turbine. Or it will be used to heat air that powers an electrical power generating sterling motor. The power can be transferred by HVDC infrastructures to the nearby (as in thousands of miles and/or kilometers away) global cities. It also can be used to produce energy intensive products for the global market (aluminum, fertilizers, glass tech, etc). It also can be used to power the on that locations made new datacenters of the world. In case of Iceland, cooling would take no extra energy -normally by datacenters 70% extra power demand for cooling activities- or even could be used to heat house or fish farms. It also can be used to produce hydrogen for the global energy market. There is certainly a need for an ocean thermal energy knowledge company that exactly knows where worldwide the best ocean thermal power production processes can be bought. Ocean thermal power knowledge and ocean thermal power equipment production will be two different types of economic sectors. The ocean based power generating model is based on exploitation of the temperature difference between top layer ocean water (25 degrees Celsius) and deeper layers (5 degrees Celsius), the 20 degrees temperature is used to generate electricity. Geo thermal can be used in volcanoes areas to produce power. Both micro and macro. Iceland could produce all on grid power demand of their whole economy, completely by her geo thermal natural resources. They could also use the electrical power to power their car/truck/bus mobility (by batteries or by hydrogen) and ships engines (by hydrogen, needs transition of installbase, will be done as fossil fuel doubles again in price). They even could export power by HVDC to 'nearby' cities. In case of Iceland: Europe, Canada and/or the USA or (maybe better solution by less infrastructural investment need) become an important global hydrogen supplier. These ocean thermal energy power factories can be located on-shore on locations where both 5 degrees Celsius deep ocean (by isolated pipes) and 25 degrees Celsius (surface water) are available (transport of power by HVDC to 'nearby' world cities of as hydrogen for the world market. Or off-shore on floating structures on deep seas (mostly hydrogen production). For more information on ocean thermal power see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ocean_thermal_energy_conversion). There is certainly a need for an ocean thermal energy knowledge company that exactly knows where worldwide the best ocean thermal power production processes can be bought. Ocean thermal power knowledge and ocean thermal power equipment production will be two different types of economic sectors. The arctic air/water based power generating model is based on the temperature difference of the sea water (0 degrees Celsius) and the air temperature (40-50 degrees Celsius) in the pole regions. So the temperature difference could be even more than 40 degrees Celsius (double of ocean thermal power systems) and by the fact that more the temperature difference is, the energy production equally rise, the Polar Regions are perfect locations for thermal power generation. Transport of power could be done by HVDC cables to the cities in the northern hemisphere, of by hydrogen in ships or pipes. There is certainly a need for an arctic air/water thermal energy knowledge company that exactly knows where worldwide the best arctic air/water thermal power production processes can be bought. Arctic air/water thermal power knowledge and ocean thermal power equipment production will be two different types of economic sectors.
