Electricity yield converted into rapeseed

There is no form of energy as ridiculous as biofuel. We must not count them as renewable energy because the yield has nothing to do with the requirements.

Electricity yield converted into rapeseed
There is no form of energy as ridiculous as biofuel. We must not count them as renewable energy because the yield has nothing to do with the requirements.

There's 7.6 hectares of rapeseed growing there. But with all the vegetable oil from the rape cultivation, diesel cars only get as far as an electric car with the yield of photovoltaic from a single GEMINI next Generation house. There is also a family living on the tiny 400 m² property.

  The calculation


For this calculation we assume the annual yield of a GEMINI next Generation with 20,000 kWh and the area yield of rape with 1000 litres per hectare. For the determination of the consumption Spritmonitor.de is used. On March 20, 2019 the following values were displayed:

  • 38,950 passenger car with diesel engine with 6.48 l/100 km
  • 496 electric cars with 16.91 kWh/100 km
With the average values, 20,000 kWh were sufficient for 118,273 km. Diesel cars would have needed 7,664 litres of vegetable oil, which would have required 7.664 ha of cultivated land.

Anyone who cultivates 7.664 ha of rape would have to be recognised as an agricultural enterprise, and would be allowed to build a residential house on the area of his agricultural enterprise.

Aud these facts becomes the requirement to be allowed to live under the photovoltaic - Land for energy.
GEMINI next generation - energy + food + living comfort GEMINI next generation - energy + food + living comfort
What can housing cost? Where can you build? How much Energy should a house produce? How much building material is needed? GEMINI n.G. is looking for completely new answers to these questions.


Prehistory of the GEMINI next Generation project
It started in autumn 1991 with the GEMINI habitable solar power plant, 2011 with the initiative Solar Building Land and 2018 with GEMINI 66 - we build our house ourselves.


Where can and should GEMINI next Generation be built?
Using existing land better and building where conventional houses cannot or are not allowed is an important objective of the GEMINI next Generation project.


How much energy should a house generate?
As much as possible! Because we need to get out of oil, coal, biofuel, natural gas and uranium. Our houses should contribute as much as possible.
