Využitie CO2 exhalátov na uskladňovanie energie

Myšlienka masívneho uskladňovania energie znie veľmi nádejne. Uvidíme, či sa uplatní v praxi.
Využitie  CO2 exhalátov na uskladňovanie energie

General Electric (GE) predstavilo novú metódu, ktorá by mohla riešiť alternatívne problémy týkajúce sa výroby elektrickej energie. Jednak možnosť ukladania solárnej energie na neskoršie použitie. A takisto využiť emisie CO2 vznikajúce v tepelných elektrárňach.

CO z uhoľných elektrární by sa ukladal do obrovských nádrží, umiestnených pod zemou. Tu by sa sa za pomoci prebytočnej energie premenil na suchý ľad.  Potom sa swolárna energia zo zrkadiel solárnej elektrárne sa využije na roztavenie solí a jej prebytok sa môže využiť na zahriatie pevného CO2 do tzv. superkritického stavu medzi plynom a pevnou látkou. Ten potom počas špičiek spotreby elektriny po západe slnka bude poháňať turbíny na opätovnú produkciu elektriny. Takto vraj možno generovať až 100 megawattov elektrickej energie na inštalovanú jednotku. To by malo postačiť na napájanie 100 000 domácností v USA.

Viac uvádzame v pôvodnom znení z engaget.com (aby sme prekladom nenarušili technický výklad tohto zaujímavého riešenia akumulácie prebytkov energií na neskoršie použitie):

Carbon captured by coal plants would drive turbines that deliver power at night.

Two big problems have been vexing environmental scientists for decades: How to store solar energy for later use, and what to do with CO2 that's beencaptured and sequestered from coal plants? Scientists from General Electric (GE) could solve both those problems at once by using CO2 as a giant "battery" to hold excess energy. The idea is to use solar power from mirrors to heat salt with a concentrated mirror array like the one at theIvanpah solar plant in California. Meanwhile, CO2 stored underground from, say, a coal plant is cooled to a solid dry ice state using excess grid power.
When extra electricity is needed at peak times, especially after the sun goes down, the heated salt can be tapped to warm up the solid CO2 to a "supercritical" state between a gas and solid. It's then funneled into purpose built turbines (from GE, naturally) which can rapidly generate power. The final "sunrotor" design (a prototype is shown below) would be able to generate enough energy to power 100,000 homes, according to GE.

The design could also tap wasted heat from gas-fired power plants, making them more efficient. GE senior engineer Stephen Sanborn thinks such a scheme would more than double the output of those systems, reducing the cost from $250 per megawatt-hour to $100. "It is so cheap because you are not making the energy, you are taking the energy from the sun or the turbine exhaust, storing it and transferring it," he says. In addition, the system would return up to 68 percent of the stored energy back to the grid, much more than the 61 percent of current gas-fired systems.

While the system is complex and requires expertise in refrigeration, heat-transfer, energy storage and chemical engineering, GE has in-house researchers in all those fields. In the short term, the technology could make gas plants 25 to 50 percent more efficient by tapping exhaust waste, significantly reducing CO2 output. Looking ahead, Sanborn thinks that the energy storage system could be put into commercial use in as little as five to 10 years. "We're not talking about three car batteries here," he says. "The result is a high-efficiency, high-performance renewable energy system that will reduce the use of fossil fuels for power generation."
