Scottish Independence and Scotland's Future
Scottish Innovation Party (SIP) Energy

Here I am going to explore technologies that can benefit our Energy policies.

Three reasons why energy efficient cogeneration technology is gaining momentum.

The world’s first central power plant was opened in New York nearly 135 years ago. It used an energy efficient technology that’s only now gaining widespread adoption.

Built by Thomas Edison’s company in 1882, the Pearl Street Station was the world’s first combined heat and power (CHP) plant. It harnessed the heat emanating from its steam engines to warm nearby buildings. But it’s only recently that the practice of cogenerating heat and electricity has started to see widespread adoption.

Cogeneration is gaining fresh momentum because it saves money and alleviates the electricity demand on the grid. Worldwide, there are more than 15,500 GE Jenbacher gas engines powering CHP systems in 100-plus countries. For example, a 12-MW CHP system powered by four Jenbacher gas engines provides onsite power and heat at a 55-acre tomato greenhouse complex in Ontario. Operated by Great Northern Hydroponics, the system also produces a ready supply of CO2 to fertilize the facility’s tomato crop. Or take a beverage facility in the GTA, where a 2MW CHP system powered by one Jenbacher engine is currently being installed. The system will provide power for the plant as well as steam and hot water that will be used in their bottling process.

Cheap, abundant & very safe nuclear power.....Thorium
Why are the governments of the world who use nuclear energy not using Thorium reactors? It's safe abundant & very cheap. The fact of the matter is Thorium isn't any good for there nuclear weapons. So they will risk the human civilization from now to however many generations survive there stupidity. It's all about greed & power. Thorium reactors would give us no harmful waste as well as all the other benefits from using this abundant material. When will we say enough is enough. I'll tell you when after a nuclear disaster that will end up killing half of the planet, that's what it will take for them to stop the madness. Make no mistake this will happen. There will be a time when in the not to distant future an natural disaster will cause more the one nuclear plant to go into meltdown. We must put a stop to this insanity now.
