Our place is completely the wrong shape being very long relative to its depth which meant we have had to install multiple heat pumps but gives us a better control over how much heat we extract but unfortunately an increase in capital outlay.
Cost of electric cars. The changes coming down the pike will include what %age of people will be able to have a car. I can see motorcycles taking on a much greater role (along with sidecars!) just as used to be the case.
A radical change in society must and will take place. The easy days are coming to an end.
Generation of electricity? So called renewables will increase and when augmented by small nuclear power plants that are already in use in amongst other places states making up the Russian Federation will expand. This, and more, is already in feasaibility studies in the UK today
Power distribution for electric vehicle charging that makes use of secondary batteries? Far from being a big issue but hydrogen fuel cells will power probably the vast majority of vehicles. Battery technology is only a short term solution.
Look, this - and much more - IS going to happen. It's a real revolution that is going to take place that is going to change society in ways that we are yet to discover - but happen it will. TINA.
What a laugh Todgy !!
Motor bikes and sidecars ?!?!
You must be jokin?
Where would you put the fuel cell ?? In the sidecar???!
Only work efficiently if they have a large enough area to collect the
heat from!! As you yourself illustrared above in your post??
In cities?? I leave you to imagine!
Small nuclear reactors are a possibility to generate electricity ! But
they still have to be developed and proved ??
I believe Rolls Royce has a proposal for building modular small scale
reactors on an assembly line typeof system ! But getting approval
is likely to take longer than building them??
I think Boris is big on grand imaginative schemes but he has so many
dreams that most will never be completed for obvious reasons ??
I will keep my opinions on Boris quiet for now, untill Brexit unfolds
a little more ! I love his enthusiasm but he needs controlling imo ??
