Once we've reached production/installation stage the EROEI starts to rise and continues to rise to infinity.
Unlike oil or coal, where the EROEI is descending towards zero.
Your statement shows that you don't know what energy return is about.
If efficiency doubles, what happens to energy return?
minimally affected by increases in process efficiency
Give me a break.
If it is mass produced (increase in process efficiency) its EI goes way down.
Where do you get off trying to tell people that they don't know what they are talking about when you clearly don't know yourself?
Doomer yourself away its ok with me, just don't start making things up.
