YOU!: Fix the US Energy Crisis

seems like its been awhile since anyone posted here, but since its pinned...
it may have been said but, there is some research going into the bioelectric systems of electric eels
mainly to create a small scale synthetic version of thier systems, for use in powering medical devices
if they get that far, the next logical step would be "can we up-scale to create self-charging batteries"
starting most likely at cellphones then going to automotive, and evetually to "battery plants" (power stations)

Windmills will provide excess power during the night when conventional Gas, Coal or Nuclear power stations are kept on line because it is to costly to shut them down overnight. Providing the wind blows then windmills will generate power.
The point about furnaces being manufactured to suit the fuel is accepted but what would the cost of new furnaces be compared to complete new power stations?

I would research this further, but I would be late for work.
One problem I see with the system, is that it is fish based. Fish eat. Things that eat, poop. I'm already tired of changing the oil in my automobile, and don't look forward to changing its diapers.
