from the Canals! They are link massive heat collectors, that draw in energy from the sun and the land. Each day 26 Terrawatts of power. The problems has been how to get at it.
The science was worked out in the 1950s – the heat pump. We circulate low pressure gas, through a huge heat exchange on the bottom of the canal.
It enters at -20oC, and leaves at 18oC – higher for hot countries. We double the pressure of the gas, and suddenly it is at 228oC. So we boil off water. And drive a steam cycle.
We generate 20 MW of 0 carbon, free energy. We then repeat the trick on the exit steam, so we produce water at 98oC, and get back 92% of our system energy – the steam turbine heats the steam up by 10oC, and emits X-rays as the turbine and boiler room do Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
So we get 20 MW of energy – the grid will par 120 trillion for over the year. By using a resource which has been largely unused since the 18th century.
A decent sized lake will act in place of the canal. And we cool the water down by just 2oC. Even in winter. No Fossil Fuels burn. And no hyper toxic nuclear fission from U.
