>>7374806Solarpunk is forbidden on this board
>>7374806Also, post more than one pape
>>7375064Yo I met one of the architects for this once, apparently all the mirrors reflect light onto the central tower which pumps like a salt through it, anyway the salt gets super hot which runs a normal steam engine. The benefit over solar panels is the hot salt can actually act like a battery over night and for a few days without sun so it's still pumping out power all year
>>7375104True enough, I think it's just called a solar tower, new generation is coming soon though, hopefully we'll see Solar updraft tower in a few years.

>>7380196Solar is dirt cheap, and really efficient. Storage is a problem and often requires mined resources.
>>7380196Solar is already cheaper then everything else, only wind turbines can compete.

>>7382960It's over lads. Further proof the /pol/ influx indeed happened
>>7377983Facebook, am I right?
>>7380388Depends on area really. Places like Southern California or Florida have plenty of sun. Washington State might have a few issues getting sun. I'd say it all revolves around Graphine being economically viable.
>>7390058Extremely sunny regions are only needed for solar solar thermal power towers. Photovoltaic works everywhere. It's even economically viable in Germany. And Germany is not a sunny place at all.
>>7390490wow this says so much. I live in the red area in the US. no reason we can't have everything powered by solar by now.

>>7394246If you're asking for a skeptic's take on solar:https://mobile.twitter.com/PeterZeihan/status/989868124525809664The abstract is this, even though solar is cheap in many regions, it can only be collected in useful quantities outside of the hours of peak energy use. Energy storage is inefficient and expensive (part of the reason petroleum is so important) and if the US wanted to switch to solar using currently available technologies, it would need to consume the entire planet's lithium production for a period of decades. It's neat for threads like this, but the truth is that wind is a better choice in nearly all instances.The exception is orbital solar arrays, transmitting power to earth in beams of microwaves. Death rays and satellite stations seem like sci-fi, but the math checks out.
>>7393205Most of these images remind me of the utopian science fiction pictures that I'd see in the 50's/60's, that and and most of these pictures seem like major industrial projects that would perpetuate status quo.
>>7374806No requests. If you want to start a thread with a theme you need to contribute a fair share of content before you sit back and expect other anons to dump a bunch of their own.

It's carbon nanotube levels of meme at this point>can't produce it in bulk>can't make monolayer graphene reliably>cheap(er) stuff like reduced graphene oxide is chemically shit>can't be used in applications other than polymer composites
>>7396814>wind is a better choiceuntil last year wind had an minor advantage but now solar can out-compete everything else
>>7401362Reread my post, dumb dumb. The problem isn't cost. The problem is that ground based pv panels don't produce any energy at all when a modern society needs it most. We are incapable of solving this problem in the short to mid term by any means.That means that even if this country adopted solar in earnest, it would not be capable of outcompeting fossil fuels in any way, shape, or form.
>>7398615Gundam has space colonies like this, I wonder if this was a common idea back then
>>7401556You are wrong, peak energy demand is during office hours, at daytime, noon on sunny summer days. Incidentally this is exactly when photovoltaic works best. Meanwhile solar is out-competing everything else. Especially fossil. https://cleantechnica.com/2016/12/25/cost-of-solar-power-vs-cost-of-wind-power-coal-nuclear-natural-gas/

>>7374715Anyone else already feeling like this is walking zeerrust? Not just because of the 70s-80s art, even the modern stuff feels dated. Almost mid-10s.
>>7420538What is zeerrust?
>>7400132I do battery shit myself. Graphene for photovoltaics sounds like a meme. I'm just praying for for perovskite to actual last longer than a week but I haven't looked into it lately. I don't give a shit if it has lead in it, as long as you're not grinding them into powder then I don't see much of an issue especially with solar farms.Regardless I think the reason we don't have more solar is big oil. You can check red states where they make laws so you no longer get paid when you put more energy into the grid. IMO it's gotta go grassroots because even now its financially viable if you own a home and don't plan to move in 15 years (see all boomers)
>>7384386"kill conservatives" yeah you guys are real intellectuals

>>7431038That's a just a guess how it might influence energy demand if everybody would put solar panels on his roof with no storage. Even a small battery in every home can easily fix this.
>>7379345It's not retarded. Every time a new thread is posted it deletes an older one. If you're deleting a full thread just so you can post one image and ask for more, you're actively making the board worse.
