Doug Vining Chemical energy on demand

Here's another energy invention that promises to change the game. Australian researchers have built a reference model of a chemical loop energy system which essentially uses natural gas or electricity to 'charge' chemical particles in a reactor vessel. When that mixture is allowed to oxidise it releases heat, which can drive a turbine and heat water. They are not saying what chemicals they use, but it's probably something similar to the sodium hydroxide solution that Swiss engineers adopted to make their energy storing solution featured in this MindBullet.

While the Australian system is not a breakthrough for 'free' energy, it does offer the potential for self-generation and micro-distribution, also storing solar power for later use. More choices for people looking for alternatives to central utilities!
