21. [sigh] ... I really need to get a life ....

 

I posed legitimate questions related to the actual policy under discussion.


Except I never said or intended to say anything about the policy under discussion (which, FWIW, I think is a good idea.) My comment was only about the state of journalism and how people don't know the difference between units of power and energy. (That comment, BTW, was in answer to PhantomPower, not you, but, being a discussion board, you were within your rights to comment on it. It would be nice, though, if you didn't change the subject before commenting.)

You have asserted (from "reading" the wrong document) that the California Public Utility Commission doesn't know the difference between energy and power ...


Uh, no, I never asserted any such thing. And you can't show where I did. The closest I came was saying I don't know. That's hardly an assertion. Whoever wrote the documents used the wrong term.

... based on the fact that they specified an amount of storage based on the peak power capacity of the storage resource in terms of the maximum discharge rate.


Uh, no, that was not the basis of my non-assertion. I commented only on the mis-use of the unit of power when they were talking about energy. I cared not why it was done, by whom, or how anyone came up with the amount of peak power capacity or storage resource. I didn't look at it because I didn't care. I care about the mis-use of technical language.

And as long as I am here wasting my time with you, I may as well answer the other inane, irrelevant questions you have asked, even though I never addressed them before in this thread.

Before you go, please tell us, how much energy "should" an EV battery store?


Ha! I can NAIL that one. Enough to get me from where I am to where I'm going and back with a comfortable (20%) margin. That's too easy.

Or how about a home, commercial or industrial storage system? Is there a specific number of watt/hours they should each be expected to deliver, and if so, how many hours are going to be optimal in order to reach the cost effectiveness goal that is a central feature of the policy?


Hmmm, that's a little tougher. No, there is not a specific number. I do have to wonder why you ask me that question, since it has nothing to do with anything I have said in this thread. I never considered any of that. I commented on the mis-use of a term. Remember?

And finally.
I mean, if they already have the knowledge that allows them to prescribe the best size for each storage medium, then why are they even doing this?


I mean, why are you even asking me this? I don't know, I don't care. It has nothing to do with what I was commenting on. But it is a very good illustration of how you change subjects, bring up extraneous issues, and ask people why they said things that they never said. Surely, I am not the only one that notices this? I make a comment about technical literacy only, and you keep trying to make it a discussion about how the CPUC sets energy storage policy. I guess you're asking me since no one else seems to want to talk to you about it?

What were your credentials, again?

I'm really going to bed now.
