4x more reliable in service.
What about new ‘green’ technologies?
Energy Return on Investment (EROI) is the metric used to compare the viability of energy technologies. EROI measures the energy profitability of an energy source.
Raw solid biofuel powering ZeroLoco™ can deliver an EROI of at least 25:1 at the draw-bar, which is well above the minimum of 10:1 believed necessary to sustain civilisation. For comparison, photovoltaic panels have an EROI of less than 5:1, falling below 1:1 when hydrogen is used as the energy carrier. Liquid biofuel varies between <1:1 and 2:1.
