Port Phillip Bay Bridge - Free refills daily.

Roy’s little gem. Herald Sun 10 May, 2018 p24.

Rip tide hydro from Melbournes’ Bay Bridge. Bringing down power prices!

Melbourne’s Bay Bridge - “Politics is the battle of ideas.”

Josh Frydenburg M.P and Minister for Energy thought that S.A. energy storage was “a fraction of Snowy 2.0.”

Snowy 2.0 is probably a fraction of the energy generation of MBBridge with tide hydro.

MBBridge with tide hydro and Lithium battery and direct close connection into the grid is probably a fraction of the total costs in Snowy 2.0.




Too embarrassing to compare the business case “in the battle of ideas?”

Things that really count are speed of execution, total costs, return on investment and value for money.

I’ll go for Melbourne getting a Bay Bridge as a side benefit over Snowy 2.0 any and every day!

After all; how much tourism will Snowy 2.0 encourage?

And who is going to be paying and for how long? Snowy 2.0 acquisition costs in excess of $8 billion and then the costs of upgraded transmission and connections from a really remote place.

Massive expense. But, like desal plants: a nice back up plan when you can afford any price!

Melbournes’ Bay Bridge - More cost efficient than Snowy 2.0.

It’s official. Snowy 2.0 is cheaper than coal nowadays when powered by wind or solar.

https://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/snowy-20-declares-wind-and-solar-power-clearly-cheaper-than-coal/news-story/8327e21cd5aa687189b779a041ff56f6

However, MBBridge with tide hydro is likely an order of efficiency magnitudes better due to:

A. A much larger surface area within the bay.

B. Better Energy density of water 832 times that of wind.

C. Constant 24/7 operation of tide flow either in or out with massive volumes over one cubic km daily.

D. Design it cheaper to build and operate.

E. Efficient proximity to grid connect and consumption uptake.

F. Fast transport connection by MBBridge also enabling gantry crane maintenance.


Everyday is a winding road. Get a little bit closer.”

Melbournes’ Bay Bridge - BYOD Bring your own documentary.

Movies: Who Killed the Electric Car? and Revenge of the Electric Car.

Executive Producer: Michael Lustig.
Associate Producer: Will Gibson, David Minick.
Produced by: Ondi Timoner, Vladimir Radovanov.
Director: Chris Paine, Ken Cravens.

B.Y.O.D. Coordinator: Sharon Yeung.

Assistant Editor: Christopher Ordaz.




Nowadays Europe, China and the USA are ahead of Australia.

Naturally MBBridge is in the circuit of electric car uptake in Melbourne.

And one day “the penny will drop,” and “a light will shine electric!”
