The Electrek leak of a larger Tesla battery cell is not being disputed by Elon Musk. The larger cell would be able to reduce the number of battery cells in a Model 3 from 4200 of the 2170 sized battery to five hundred 5498 cells. This would have massive cost and production speed improvements. The rumors are that Tesla will show actual batteries in production. The battery appears to be tabless which would make the battery factory have fewer steps and speed the production. The old Tesla batteries were about 1.5 times wider and taller than a double A battery. The post first appeared on .

Jordan Giesige of the Limiting Factor has described how Tesla will announce progress to the Terawatt-hour factories. He describes going from 150 Gigawatt-hours of batteries per year from a fully built out Nevada factory to a Terawatt-hour. Increasing energy density in batteries and reducing the size of parts of the battery lines in factories would increase production capacity up to about 240 Gigawatt-hours. The main increase will need to come from increasing the speed of battery production. Increasing the speed of battery production by 4 times would be key to achieving Terafactories. Jordan believes that Tesla will reveal version 1. The post first appeared on .

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) material scientists have created thermoelectric generators that can harvest waste heat from previously inaccessible sources, such as pipes with complex geometries. Thirteen quadrillion (3600 terawatt-hours) BTUs of energy is lost annually through waste heat by U.S. industry. The team cold-sprayed a bismuth-telluride powder on substrates ranging from stainless steel to aluminum silicate and quartz. The sprayed material had a randomly oriented microstructure largely free from pores and the cold-spray deposition was achieved without substantial compositional changes. A ZT of 0.3 can probably only recover 2-4% of the heat as electricity, but it will be from.

Giant clouds are hanging over California and blotting out the sun. Pyrocumulonimbus clouds are a type of cumulonimbus cloud that forms above a source of heat, such as a wildfire. The size and frequency of California wildfires are due to the incompetent management of California’s forests and electrical grid. The recent Creek Fire is creating massive fire clouds. Competent Forest Manaagement California has allowed over 150 million dead trees to accumulate in 33 million acres of forest. For the last decade, drought and bark beetle infestations have killed over 150 million trees. Federal and state restrictions on logging caused timber.

California customers have over 20 times the annual minutes of power outage as electrical customers in France. California has over 200 times the annual minutes of power outage as electrical customers in Japan. California customers have three times more annual minutes of power outage than the US average. The sources of the problems are how California has chosen to mismanage electrical supply, electrical grid and forests. On various nights during the recent heatwaves, natural gas plants provided 60% of California’s electricity over large regions. California had planned to shut four of those natural gas power plants in 2020. They have.

In 2018 and many other times, California was warned there would be power interruptions when nuclear reactors were shutdown. California has been having power outages and rolling blackouts because of insufficient power this summer. There was increased demand for electricity for air conditioning as temperatures reached over 100 degrees Fahrenheit and as high as 120F. The shortfall was also due to calm winds which reduced the electricity from wind farms. The shortfall in electrical generation would have been met if the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station had been repaired and restarted for $75 million in 2012. Failing to spend $75.
