    The latest offshore wind power deal was 4 euro cents per kwh. That is not expensive. Baseload is a description of a type of powerplant, not something that is needed. What you need is for supply to meet demand. You want cheap bulk electrons, and the ability to match supply and demand.

    we'll get one ... next year. contract signed. Price in Germany had been lowered a lot Check mein auto.de but be aware that the prices are lowered by VW due to German tax deduction regulations or subsidy. You might add 2380€ to get the price you have to pay. But that includes German VAT of 19% you might get back. This is a service that has connections to German VW dealers who offer you these cars for 32% less + 2380€. We pay around 22.000€ after 4.380€ subsidiary paid 2380 by VW and 2000 by government.

    To be fair I wish the diesel had the same body paint color as the Leaf. It didn't look that warm out there but the darker paint will absorb more sunlight. This would give a better comparison to the otherwise distracting image of the body. I suppose there is also the point that when your ICE is acting as something of a cogen - heat pulled off the motor to warm the cabin - that an ICE isn't as bad. Note "isn't as bad" != "good". Among other things, that heat sucks when not in chilly weather.

    Surely battery swap is one way forward for all evs? You just pull into the service station, a mechanised system swaps the battery under the car and the battery cell disappears into an underground charger.

    There's nothing more dangerous than an idiot with an IR camera. The reason for door handle and tire FALSE readings is emissivity. The waste heat of an ICE has everything to do with the coolant and nothing to do with its propulsion efficiency.

    It is very good presentation. However I am still puzzled about the cheap energy to run the pump during perhaps night time. Where does that energy comes from? From a fossile power station or nuclear power station? It is very difficult to believe that the running energy comes from the green power since they are ready to use without any losses. The pump of the pump-turbine will require at least 25 to 30 % more energy than the produced by the same turbine. Unless you have cheap energy to run the pump it is not a viable option to use to send the water to the upper reservoir. In early days we had many thermal power stations and they did not need to run with the full efficiency since there was not need the electricity night time. But this became very good option to run night time with thermal power stations. Now the thermal power stations started disappearing, so the pump side of pump-turbine become useless without free or cheaper energy. I would not run the pump side of pump-turbine today today with the green energy by considering 25 to 30 % of energy loss. But some cases, perhaps war time for some other reasons you may have to run the pump cycle.

    For most people IR camera images are just nice pictures, because it is counter intuitive that the same color means different temperature all the time (due to automatic temperature range). When you are trying to demonstrate temperature difference between 2 things, it is useful to disable automatic temperature range and set range for example from 0 to 200°C in case of cars. Only then you would be able to see how much less heat is produced by EV and how much engine bay produces. For example, in this video EV seems to have hotter tires than ICE. But it is only due to automatic temperature range of camera. Please do similar video again and let someone experienced to to IR camera shots. Such video would be epic!

    So, the ICE-car get rid of most of its waste heat through the exhaust. A thermal camera is not a good way to illustrate the differences in efficiency. With a specific heat capacity of air of roughly 1kJ/kg x K, and a, say 2 liter real displacement engine will use roughly 2kg of air per minute even idling, for every K or degree C, extra in the exhaust will represent roughly 30W of heat leaving the car. That means exhaust that is 100 C warmer than ambient at that rate will then represent roughly 3000W. A thermal camera also doesn't actually measure energy flow, surface temperature needs to be complemented with other variables to be useful for estimating energy flow. I've actually burnt myself on the disc brake on my bicycle, it should not come as a surprise that the brakes on an almost 20 times heavier vehicle can reach high surface temperature. Both EVs and ICE-cars has a lot of mass to warm up before reaching somewhat stable surface temperatures, and as other already pointed out, the surface temperatures of the covers is fairly useless information.

    It is quite well known that a combustion engine is only about 20% efficient at converting the energy in the fuel into usable torque at the wheels, where a brushless AC electric motor approaches 97% efficient at converting energy into usable torque at the wheels. It would be interesting to evaluate the chemical energy in 1 litre of diesel in kW, then see how far a diesel will travel on 1 litre compared to how far an EV will go on the same number of kW. It is not just CO2 emissions from ICE vehicles that warm the planet, each one is a direct global heater when in operation too.

I do feel the idea would be way better implemented if it was, for example, a compact gadget you could plug into a Tesla. Charging just 1% every half an hour would still make the car self suficient enough to go anywhere on long trips, provided you give the car some time alone under the sun.
