TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

portable earth battery


copper and magnesium strips in earth = energy
vid

YouTube vid covers how the magnesium-carbon air battery works.
Apparently one buries it in the ground at some point, just like the Stubblefield Coil.
Very interesting vid.

- copper wire
- several small bolts (screws or nails; use “galvanized”)
- ice cube tray
- moist dirt/soil. (dirt will “dry out”; just add 1 or 2 teaspoons of water to each “cell” and the battery will be “recharged”)
For increased voltage make more than one and connect with each other.

ultra capacitors


Traditionally quick and powerful but energy poor, capacitors have transmuted into quick, powerful, and energy-rich storage devices whose first applications are likely to be in hybrid electric vehicles and backup power supplies.

Known for storing a short-lived jolt of electricity essential to the successful operation of electrical circuits in devices and appliances ranging from PCs to microwave ovens, cell phones, and televisions, the capacitor is in the midst of a major, ongoing upgrade of its energy storage capabilities. After nearly two centuries in which batteries have been the obvious choice for storing usable amounts of energy, high-end capacitors, known as ultracapacitors, are poised to challenge them in a growing range of applications.
        
"In fuel cell vehicles, ultracapacitors have demonstrated a higher recovery of energy from braking than batteries, are considerably lighter, have a longer economic life, and are more environmentally friendly in their manufacture and disposal," says Pierre Rivard, president and CEO of Hydrogenics of Mississauga, Ontario, a clean power generation company with a focus on fuel cells.
        
Looking beyond applications in cars, he continues, "When paired with fuel cells in stop-and-go mobility applications, such as forklifts, ultracapacitors provide burst power for lifting and acceleration and enable regenerative braking; in backup power applications [ranging from hospitals to office buildings, factories, and homes], they provide instantly available short-term bridge power. In many applications they buffer power demand peaks, allowing our scalable fuel cell systems to be optimized for size and low cost."

Stubblefield coil


to Build a Nathan Stubblefield Coil is a set of YouTube vids [30min altogether] on making some kind of battery that was built around 1900.
One wraps iron/aluminum and copper wire around an iron rod and somehow it produces a current and an elektromagnetic field when it's moist.

Apparently it needs to be put in the ground at some point. Seems like it would at least be good enough for some perpetual lighting purposes.

storage of energy


this was a short discussion under Earthgate Atlantis:

In order for our community to be self sufficient in energy and so that we all don't live like a bunch of cave dwellers, we need a way of storing the energy that we produce.

Now, not being an expert in these things, the only options that I can think of are:

* Batteries
* Capacitors

Both of these options are expensive and it is not very feasible to be carrying big heavy batteries into our remote location.

----------------------------------------------------------

as the stream runs along the valley floor, it often goes through very deep chasms ending in waterfalls [small ones, but significant]. Because of this, there are many options for utilizing one of these bottlenecks for creating a dam; once the water pressure can build up and get harnessed by some hydro dynamo technology, real time energy should be a real possibility.

As well, what i've learned about wind energy (some years back), the output of a propellor-fueled dynamo is enough for running many appliances. It's not at all like the drip drip amounts that solar panels give off.

Hydro and wind together should make much storage of energy moot and there's loads and loads of it on location.
Batteries are expensive, heavy, and need relative frequent replacement. A system that only uses them as backup would be preferable, i think, but i'm not technical and wouldn't know how to set it up myself.

--------------------------------------------------------

Here are a few things we can do on a small scale using hand crank technology.

copper, Mg, carbon, zinc batteries


try magnesium powder from ebay, carbon powder from batteries, smash the carbon rods till its powdery, mixed both of them and put copper and zinc as electrodes..
Mg + 2 H2O -> Mg(OH)2 + H2
magnesium will produce hydrogen from water.. carbon will bond with oxygen.. these electrodes will only take the hydrogen

sodium battery


]Salt-and-water battery could help plug renewables gap
Dr Minakshi said he was drawn to sodium because its chemical properties were similar to lithium, the element that powers most portable electronic devices. While lithium ion batteries are common in today’s consumer electronics, they require inbuilt safety mechanisms that can affect efficiency; as well, lithium batteries tend to fail after a few years.
The Murdoch University researchers say the main challenge they faced in developing a sodium-ion battery was finding cathode and anode materials capable of accommodating sodium’s ionic size – which is 2.5 times larger than that of lithium.
After testing various metals and phosphates, Dr Minakshi’s team eventually found success with manganese dioxide as the cathode and a novel olivine sodium phosphate as the anode. The result is a safe, cost-effective battery with high energy density.
