Offshore windturbine slaat energie onderwater op

AMSTERDAM  Onderzoekers van de Amerikaanse universiteit MIT hebben een methode bedacht waarmee de variabele energie die windturbines op zee produceren kan worden opgevangen.

een offshore windpark Enorme cilinders die onderwater worden geplaatst onder de turbine kunnen de energie opslaan, aldus de wetenschappers.

Het principe is al eerder bedacht. Water wordt uit de cilinder gepompt wanneer de windturbine te veel energie produceert. Als er weer energie nodig is wordt het water in de cilinder gelaten. Een turbine wordt door het water aangedreven om energie te produceren.

6 megawattuur

Volgens de onderzoekers kan een cilinder met een diameter van 25 meter en 400 meter diep ongeveer 6 megawattuur opslaan. Omgerekend zouden 1.000 van deze installaties genoeg energie kunnen produceren als een kerncentrale.

 Bijkomend voordeel is dat de energie vrijwel onmiddellijk beschikbaar zou zijn. Ook kunnen de cilinders energie van andere bronnen opslaan, zoals bijvoorbeeld zonneparken.

Voorlopige berekeningen wijzen erop dat 1 cilinder 12 miljoen dollar moet kosten. De kosten om stroom op te slaan lopen dan op tot 6 dollar cent per kilowattuur.

    These three figures — William Rick Singer, Mark Riddell and Rudolph Meredith, respectively — are at the center of the nationwide scandal in which 33 parents are accused of using their wealth and means to help their children game the college admissions system.
    But those three names do not appear anywhere in the complaint text, though the document gives enough clues to make clear who is who. Instead, they are named as Cooperating Witness 1, 2 and 3, and each agreed to plead guilty and to cooperate with the government in the hope of obtaining leniency when they are sentenced, the complaint says.

    Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
