An intelligent building has the ability to monitor its indoor and outdoor environment and control the installed systems (e.g. air-conditioning, ventilation, heating) for ensuring the occupancies comfort level with minimum energy consumption. There are different solutions of building automation existing on the market nowadays, and most of them are based on wired communication. Even so, not all electronic devices existent into a building could be connected for automation.

We propose a solution based on wireless communication, due to the advantages offered by this type of communication (mobility, scalability and easy implementing): an attachable wireless ‘hook’ module with the capability to process and transmit/receive wirelessly information.

For being able to communicate with the electronic devices it is necessary that the ...

This invention would assist farmers recover parts of their fields that have flooded. Often, only pumps will drain low lying areas, but these are capital intensive and energy intensive. This idea would consist of a metal framework that has a cloth or plastic mesh stretched across it. Water would soak into the lower part, submerged in the flood water, and wick up, spread out, and evaporate. Thus, a field could be dried out with no fuel, minimal labor, and minimal capital.

The materials could be sourced locally for the most part, and be assembled using local labor. These would store flat or easily be recycled when they are no longer needed.

I have not included a drawing, as none ...

This is a design for a mobile aerial solar power plant (MASP) that uses the large surface area and heavy lifting capabilities of a remote-piloted airship to provide a platform for the collection, storage, and wireless delivery of solar-derived energy to a rectenna unit capable of powering an ad hoc electrical power grid on the ground.

The entire surface of the airship is covered with thin-film photovoltaics to maximize harvesting of sunlight including diffuse sunlight and albedo from the earth’s surface. The electricity so generated is apportioned by a smart power management system to the airship’s propulsion system, energy storage system, and power beaming system.

The energy storage system is comprised of a stack of regenerative fuel cells capable ...

My design began with trying to find a way to build a home that uses wind energy to produce its own electric power, even in a low wind speed locale. Due to my background in farming and construction, I began looking at round building structures such as a silo (i.e., a vertical cylinder), because they can enhance the electric generation capability of wind turbines if used according to my patent pending technology improvements.

A silo structure is well suited for this:
Silos provide less wind resistance than a comparable square pillar, thus making them more stable, even in a tornado. Silo structures have many potential uses: grain storage, warehousing, water tower, homes, offices, apartments, hotels...

There are many abandoned ...

This Energy Harvester is unique by exploiting the energy of angular momentum and gravity through the vortex created by water draining in a vessel and capturing this energy with peizo-electric materials, either in cantilever or radial form. This module can be stacked to produce greater storage capabilities or scaled up for greater output. Through the INTAKE you drop sphere (mass) or other drains if stacked. Once sphere nears drain it takes on a wobble-spin which can be tuned by angle of peizo-materials (green). From here the electricity is conditioned in electrical housing (red) then to outputs (yellow). A single high capacity direct attachment battery can be charged or a battery of banks through higher output socket. While most peizo-electric ...

Star Wars began with Luke Skywalker working on a moisture farm. Moisture farming was the only way to get enough water to sustain life on the desert planet of Tattooine. This hat was designed as a portable moisture farm.

There are many places on earth that fresh water is not readily available. Also there are many places where the water supply is not great enough to sustain the population density there. In the next 10 years, it is likely that wars will be fought over fresh water supply disputes.

The Fresh Water Hat is a lifeguard hat that uses solar panels to power a miniature compressor and a fan. A fundamental air conditioning system can be designed out of ...

This idea uses ultrasonic molding along with magnetic and electrical control systems that produce the ionization levels at the proper positions in a molecular liquid, and then controlling the magnetic moments to disassemble "carbonated water" H2CO3 and reassemble into C8H18 "gasoline"...

We all know how much gasoline affects the economy, and if we
had cheaper gas, manufacturers would be able to cheaply produce their products here. People would be able spend more money on various items, because they would have more money to spend. Most of us spend a least $100 a week to full up our gas tanks. How could we get the price of gas to go down to .30 cents ?

Well, most of us ...

This is a new concept of wind turbines evolved from conventional models.

GEDAYC is a new concept of wind turbines with blades and kites 300% more efficient than propeller models.

Thanks to its design and the wide range of wind that generates energy from weak to very strong winds.

The idea is to create a logistics company that manages the design, manufacture and sale of wind turbines of 850 KW GEDAYC whose innovative design makes it equivalent in performance (KW / Year) siblings older than 2 MW, due to its ability to generate power with winds weaker and stronger than propeller ...

Many are attacking the renewable energy issues. People use geothermal and some of the wells are causing problems because of the addition of fluids to underground structures that are altering, causing minor earthquakes etc. Water supply is also a problem in some locales.

Using the geothermal heat along the Pacific Rim would allow a nearly infinite heat source and sea water for the conversion to super heated steam. Nothing new here. But, if we pump sea water to a geothermal heat source near the sea or ocean, it would not only supply power, but a byproduct would be potable water.

In addition, having excess electricity would allow the generation of Hydrogen cheaply for replacing carbon ...

This system consists basically of a low power and low cost equipment called “Green Box” (Fig. 1), that can remain within a house power installation near the switch breakers’ box and can be used to monitor, assess and control the power used by the home appliances.

The main advantage is that once it is installed, it can remain there for a long time, since all the work is done from a distance, using Wi-Fi connection on any Wi-Fi enabled device like laptop, desktop or even tablets and cell phones.

This invention, besides keeping you away from scary and unexpected high priced electricity bills, helps you secure your home from the danger of a forgotten appliance that was kept on ...
