Ford, BMW and Nissan are all looking at using a thermoelectric generator, to turn heat into power. So we drive a car electrically – no engine of Fossil Fuels burn.
What they have all missed, is that a team plasma tube turns regular water into heat.
1 H2Op+TU->E2+L+X-ray and TU=turbulence not a rare earth metal. Read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermoelectric_materials
Now these have a 6% efficiency. So to drive a car we are looking at $500. Whereas a small turbine is going to cost 14,000 UK pounds.
So a 50x1cm steam plasma tube at 4 atmospheres will generate 2.2MW of heat. We will get 120kW of power. We can use power electronics to convert into speed linked AC.
So we drive contactless AC electric motors. 45KW will drive a small helicopter. So we can fly between cities in the sky.
We use IT to set up motorways in the air – and avoid collisions. So we use Wi-Fi to fly safely. And then we land on the outskirts of a city, and drive to our destination.
And we only use 8x10-11cc of regular water a year. No Fossil Fuels. Which is why oil prices are < $50 dollars a barrel – and going down.
We can use linked layers of N and P semiconductors, and as heat flows between them, so do electrons. So as efficient, and 2,500 times less weight than a lead acid battery. And cheaper than rare Earth metals. And we can use semiconductor technology to produce water thin, and efficient generators.
And the technology is already developed and mature. Oil is on a one way road to oblivion.
