The Sun would be sufficient to supply all of our energy needs, but solar energy is not available during the nighttime and on cloudy days. That is why it would be advantageous to convert solar energy into storable and transportable chemical fuels.

Main Idea:
I just wonder that the huge weight of trucks or cars should be somehow utilized to generate energy. My main idea is to make small air bags of some flexible material or kind of small pockets filled with air, on the periphery of the tyre.

Mountains are impediments to wind flow, so redirected wind gains velocity as it is forced to follow the contour of the mountain. Thermal updrafts from the sun-heated valley below, follow the same contour.

Here is a process that helps reduce dependence on non-renewable energy resources using an environmentally friendly cooking process.

Since the mid-1990s, electronic waste has been recognized as the fastest-growing component of the solid-waste stream as small consumer electronic products such as cellular phones have become ubiquitous in developed and developing countries. In the United States alone,

884 million people lack access to safe water supply. This is approximately one in eight people. Half of the world's hospitalizations are due to water-related diseases. 3.575 million people die each year from water related disease. Water also leads to other problems in sanitation,

In Ocean Algal Afforestation (OAA), a macro-algae forest (such as kelp, but any biomass will work) is grown on the ocean surface. Carefully managed harvesting allows the forest to grow to support a complete natural ecosystem with diverse and edible sea life.

In the recent times, the furnace industries are facing a major challenge in continuously reducing environmental emissions while improving the overall performance of the combustion process. A crucible furnace is no longer an exception to this rule.

Passive luminescent solar concentrators (LSC) are possible that have high efficacy, long life and low cost. Luminescent solar concentrators consist of a fluorescent dye in a transparent matrix that captures and concentrates light.
