Tesla Terror: Lithium Battery ‘Bombs’ Exploding In Toxic Fireballs That Burn For Days

Giant batteries are said to be the Planet’s saviour, but be sure you’re well clear when they explode into toxic fireballs that firefighters can’t extinguish. On the large-scale, it’s the kind of terrifying Tesla moment experienced by locals in Victoria when one of these lithium-ion wonders went up in flames and literally burned for days, […]

Impossible Dream: Why Energy Storage Systems Can’t Solve Wind & Solar’s Intermittency

Renewable energy storage is literally setting the world on fire. When giant lithium-ion batteries aren’t exploding in toxic balls of flame, their limited capacity means that they add a trivial occasional trickle of electricity to the grid; and do so at an astronomical cost. The wind and solar acolyte would have us believe that if […]

Wind & Solar Storage ‘Fires Up’: Giant Battery Burns For Days After Terrifying Explosion

Giant lithium-ion batteries have an alarming habit of exploding and, when they do, literally burning for days. Following up on our recent post concerning just such a case – where a Tesla mega-battery exploded in a toxic fireball in southwest Victoria – here’s a couple from the team at Jo Nova and Watts Up With […]

Battery ‘Bombs’: More Giant Renewable Energy Batteries Explode in Toxic Fireballs

‘Bombs’ are designed to store and quickly release copious amounts of energy, so are the mega-batteries said to save wind and solar from their hopeless intermittency. The notion is that giant lithium-ion batteries will quell the power delivery chaos that comes with attempting to rely wholly weather-dependent wind power and wholly sunshine-dependent solar power; thereby […]
