Data center with nuclear reactor? How can that go together? It's actually very obvious and at the same time I wonder why I didn't come up with this idea myself. Find out here why this is a brilliant idea. Continue reading →
Are investments in uranium worthwhile? I have been following developments in nuclear power for a number of years now, I was an opponent of nuclear power myself for a long time, and yet after 2011 and the Fukushima disaster I looked into the subject in more depth and did my own research, watched documentaries and reports myself, looked beyond the German "negative" horizon and then came to the point where I say that the Nuclear power is an important and non-negligible source of energy.
The topic of accumulators as battery storage for Germany and its energy transition is almost a daily topic on Linkedin, and so it recently came to a discussion on LinkedIn again, based on my post from a youtube video from VattenfallWhen the audience heard that the pumped storage in Germany can only supply Germany for 30 minutes, the topic of battery storage came up again, and that Germany could then be operated with it during dark periods.
I did the math:

One discussion that comes up again and again is that renewable energies are not base load capable, or are they? Well, as it always is, it is not easy to answer and is a question of definition.
They say, the wiser gives in, because it makes no sense to discuss with stupid people, well, I had this view also for some time, but if people are getting dumber and then climate extremists are financed from abroad, present themselves as saviors of humanity (yes not even of the German people), then it is time to show these truants how to do it really.

Vertical farming and power consumption is actually one of the most important topics in the industry, but it is usually given little attention or glossed over with buzz words, at least it seems to me that people prefer not to throw out the hard numbers. As a trained electronics engineer, however, I know that the reality is different and not necessarily so great when you look at the energy requirements.
Recently I have become aware of the issue of "expropriation of housing" and energy renovation, which affects all of us and by all I mean property owners and also those who rent and rent housing, because tenants will not be spared.
Streaming is an energy hog and causes a lot of CO2. I have often thought about this topic, but today I would like to write down my thoughts in this post and provide food for thought to find a solution.
For several years now, the e-cars, BEV, eCar, electric cars and how you want to call all the crap then, state subsidized and gradually these get more freedom, so should be allowed from 2030 in Berlin only electric carsFrom 2030 only electric cars will be allowed in Berlin. Since the Green government (honestly, I hear more from the Greens than from the SPD, which with Olaf Scholz actually provides the Chancellor, but well) is in power, one hears a lot from the Green Party. Children's book author named Robert Habeck who controls and reprimands Germany's economy as Minister of Economics and a Green Minister of Foreign Affairs who likes to 180° confused with 360 and occasionally a country the declaration of war pronounces. So much for the everyday madness.
Is Germany moving step by step into an eco-dictatorship? Current developments show that, yes, freedoms are being reduced.
For years, citizen participation has been involved in infrastructure projects such as highways or wind turbines, citizens have voice rights and are allowed to say no, species protection is a priority so that animals that are endangered are supported and protected, but now it is said to have come out that Robert Habeck, Federal Minister of Economics (The Greens), was in Brussels and submitted a corresponding application to be able to introduce an emergency ordinance in Germany. The first emergency decree since 1933.
