New Energy Technology Wins in Energy Transition and Global Crisis
Digitalization, automation of production processes, robotization, a massive transition to electromobility, IT - all these industries will not only influence the vector of human development for many years, but will also determine the winners in competitive economic rivalry on the world stage.
All of these industries, however, are energy intensive and their development is directly related to the increase in energy production. According to experts, by 2050 the demand for electricity will increase at least 2.5 times. The refusal of Western banks to finance projects related to fossil fuels is forcing international corporations whose main activity is the extraction of oil, gas and coal to activate the search for business diversification. Although, against the backdrop of the geopolitical confrontation between Western countries and Russia, the issues of building an economy with a zero carbon footprint have receded into the background, but this is certainly a temporary phenomenon.
The political and social demand for clean energy technologies dictates new rules for the development of the market, while at the same time the question arises: what technologies can replace fossil fuels, where to get electricity, which is required in ever-increasing volumes? The energy transition in a short time, given the fact that many developed countries have decided to completely ban the sale of cars with internal combustion engines within 10-20 years, means that new technologies for power generation should be developed and ready for widespread implementation now.
We are not talking about solar power generation and wind generation, since they are dependent on weather conditions, and for such weather conditions as in Russia, they are, in principle, difficult to apply. The growth potential of hydro generation has exhausted itself, especially in densely populated areas where large consumers of electricity are located, in addition, the construction of dams requires the flooding of vast areas and leads to the flooding of river channels. Nuclear units were designed to operate in the base mode, although measures have now been developed to operate in a maneuver mode with a decrease in economic efficiency, so their share in the total energy balance cannot be dominant, for example, in Russia it is 23%.
New technology based on graphene converts the energy of invisible spectrum radiation fields
The new power generation technology, called Neutrinovoltaic, has all the prerequisites to become a way out of the “energy dilemma”. It was created by the international research company Neutrino Energy Group. Already at the end of 2022-beginning of 2023, the industrial production of Neutrino Power Cubes electricity sources will begin in Switzerland, which was the first to acquire a license for their production, which will gradually create a distributed power supply system and compensate for the growing demand for electricity by generating it directly at the place of its use.
The difference between the proposed power generation system and the currently known ones lies in the fact that it makes it possible to place DC sources created on the basis of Neutrinovoltaic technology inside the bodies of devices and products that require electricity to operate, which eliminates the need to connect them to a centralized power supply system . This feature can be a very important advantage for solving energy supply issues, especially in remote and hard-to-reach areas. At the start of industrial production in Switzerland, Neutrino Power Cubes power sources will be produced for household power supply. Neutrino Power Cubes will have a gross power of 7kWh and a net power of at least 5kWh. Up to 2 kWh will be used for own needs by the electronic control system when converting the generated current into alternating current 220 V and 380 V, as well as for direct current of various output characteristics.
The invention became possible thanks to the use of graphene, the ability of which to receive electricity from the environment has been repeatedly proven, and materials have been published in the scientific press and in the media. However, the industrial use of graphene for the needs of power generation has been complicated due to the low output power obtained from a unit surface. This problem was successfully solved by scientists from the Neutrino Energy Group, led by the scientific director and president of Holger Thorsten Schubart, who created a nanomaterial consisting of multilayer alternating layers of graphene and silicon with the addition of alloying elements deposited on a metal foil. In the process of scientific research, scientists came to the conclusion about the importance of the thickness of the nanomaterial.
Why is the thickness of the material applied to the metal foil by vapor deposition important? Because the vibrations of graphene atoms reach their maximum value at a resulting thickness of 10-20 nanometers. Graphene belongs to 2D materials, but is able to exist stably only by exhibiting the properties of a 3D material. This property of graphene is determined by its crystal lattice, which is hexagonal, and vibrations of atoms cause a “graphene wave”, which is observed under a microscope with high resolution.
The external influence of various energy fields, including the influence of neutrinos, as well as temperature, is superimposed on the internal frequency of atomic vibrations and leads to the resonance of atomic vibrations, multiplying the flow of electrons. To force the electrons to flow in one direction, i.e. In order to generate a direct electric current, the creators added alloying elements to the nanomaterial, which act on the electron clouds of graphene. This effect is called the "oblique scattering" effect.
A multifunctional and environmentally neutral technology for converting the energy of radiation fields into electric current based on the use of graphene can undoubtedly offer solutions to many economic and social problems of our time against the backdrop of a growing need for energy and an increase in the number of population on the planet.
