The idea is to burn rice hulls in a biomass power plant to produce steam and electricity next to the rice mill where the rice hull is separated and is available in large quantities as agricultural waste.

Wireless sensors are sometimes located so remote that replacing batteries is not an option. Such applications often turn to energy harvesters. Energy Harvesting (EH) also known as energy scavenging for small electronic and low power electrical devices uses ambient energy to provide electrical power, eliminating dependency of battery power,

I have built and used a totally portable solar heater while camping, household use, emergencies, and businesses.

The idea is quite simple and proven. A dark surface, when exposed to sunlight, quickly heats up, which heats up any surrounding fluid, in this case air.

Current mobile cell tower configurations require an electrical power source, land leasing (when applicable), and backhaul to the network. Augmenting the power schema by using a combination of solar panels and wind turbines with an energy storage unit would allow for more remote placement and more flexibility.

70% of the average household's energy bill is spent on heating and hot water. By focusing sunlight on a linear boiler (with a parabolic trough or linear fresnel reflector), making steam and putting that through an efficient steam turbine connected to a permanent magnet alternator,

What ispired this design is the death rate in third world countries as well as UNICEF's statement: "The capacity of National Immunization Programmes is strengthened so that every individual can benefit from vaccines of assured quality delivered in the right amount at the right time through efficient logistics,

Product proposal for “Solar Kettle”

INTRODUCTION
There is a worldwide search for innovative technologies to reduce CO2 emissions.
One option to reduce CO2 emissions is to cut down on the use of fossil fuels to heat water for domestic use.

The sun is an endless source of energy.

The Solar Power Tower uses several simple methods to harvest maximum electrical energy from solar photovoltaic panels, and a wind turbine.

As the auto industry surges forward with technological advancements, the general aviation industry continues to lag. Reliable means of transportation driven by renewable resources, such as solar powered blended wing body (BWB) aircraft, are viable and logical solutions in taking the industry forward.
