Ok, I found a source that says conventional gas
fired steam generators max out at about 37%
efficiency while gas turbine plants can achieve
about 50% efficiency.
So Nords, what am missing? In my previous post
I calculated that for 100% conversion efficiency,
we could get 6.64 KWH output per KWH input.
At 50% efficiency, we still get 3.32 KWH output
per KWH input.
"All we have to do" is scale up the Proton generator,
tap into the grid to "prime the pump" (so to speak)
and achieve lift off into the hydrogen economy.
