I own a brewery in Japan and will probably be expanding with a new brewery with a restaurant and bar in a couple of years. When I do this I want to be as energy efficient/independent as I can.
I plan on using solar panels for daytime generation.
Breweries use a lot of water so I was thinking if I pumped water to a 100,000 Lt tank on the roof and then dropped it through a narrowing pipe and into a generator at ground level what kind of output could I anticipate? The building will probably be 10-12 metres high with the tank on top of that. I am open to suggestions as to starting width and finishing widths on the downpipe for best volume/speed to power.
Would it be possible to power the whole thing or would that be impossible?
How much energy would it take to pump water to the roof compared to how much energy we could produce? The brewery will be on the second floor.
Any advice or information you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
Sasparilla and fresh horses for all my men! You will see to it, won't you tiny ad?
