Troposphere wind to power and synfuel
Cheap wind energy conversion to drive the well-known chemical processes for the production of competitive synfuels
The technology to make liquid fuel from CO2 and H2 has existed for nigh on 100 years. The main barrier to wide-spread deployment is the uncompetitive cost of fuel that is produced. The main cost centre is the electricity consumed. This is a show stopper. The cost of synfuel can be attacked from two directions. The first is to make the process more efficient to reduce the amount of energy consumed. But this will inevitably at some point meet a thermodynamic barrier that cannot be crossed. The other approach is to tackle the cost of the electricity consumed. < $20 / MWh is the magic number that would make SynFuel competitive with fossil fuels. High altitude wind power is the only show in town that holds out this promise.
