Adhesives have been in use by humans for at least 200,000 years and were central to empower the 19th century technological developments. Today, the role of adhesives in our society is more important than ever, with thousands of brands and specialized products for almost any type of application or product. Adhesives have, however, a huge downside. Most types, especially for high-performance applications, consist of a mix of toxic and environmentally harmful chemicals, like epoxies and acrylics, presenting a health danger to humans as well as a growing environmental problem, both through their production and use. In addition, glued parts often bond permanently and renders recycling impossible; if one parts break, the entire bonded component must be discarded.

The fast food carts have been the impulse of a large number of small businesses that have allowed many people or families to earn income by selling some type of food. The novelty of this proposal is to integrate these carts a hybrid power generation system electrical system composed of solar cells and thermoelectric devices. The solar cells would be placed on the roof of the cart while the system of thermoelectric modules would be placed in the parts where waste heat is generated (most likely in the part of the cart where use fire eg an oven or stove). We know that currently solar cells have relatively affordable costs, are more resistant to weather conditions, and are easy ...

Smart meters present an exciting new opportunity for both Energy and Utility (E&U) companies and consumers. From the supplier-consumer relationship perspective, smart meters can redefine the supplier’s role to that of an energy advisor. From an industry viewpoint, it can integrate new technologies and innovations across the power grid. To the users’ advantage, it can drive down costs, provide transparency and flexible pricing. And from a social perspective, it can improve energy conservation, grid reliability and outage management, besides integrating the supply of renewable energy options.

Much of the business case for smart meters hinges on convincing customers to genuinely change their energy usage. A positive bias among most users toward energy conservation (for both economic and environmental reasons) ...

This invention was aimed at providing a survival support to a person,who lost his hands in an accident. Basically he was a farmer. But as mater of fact, weeding always been a great problem for farmers. That is to be performed either with hands or using machinery drive or manual rotary type weeder. In all these attempts perfection is very difficult to achieve. Secondly, manual attempt is very laborious and time consuming.

Considering all these aspects, and hopelessness of the handicapped person I just attempted to fit something on the leg. Further on seeing a HEN damaging a plant this idea came to my mind. (Worth mentioning that I have helped the handless person with a leg pressed shovel ...

How the entry works: The design creates shadow and solar cells produce electricity from the sun at the same time.

What makes it novel, Does it represent an important advance over current state of the art?: Design, combination of materials, can complement the existing structures, integrated into an insulated glass unit, no complicated care.

How it would be produced, How easy would it be to implement? Can it be cost-effectively manufactured/produced?: Conventional manufacturing process of insulated glass units combined with Thin-film solar cell production in shape of honeycomb stripe. It can be implemented through existing insulated glass factories. The payback depends on the increase in energy prices, ecological aspects.

Where it would be applied. Does the idea have practical ...

Wintergardens and many other buildings run hot during summer time. If there is no control, it might be rather hot in the rooms, if sun burns down.

The invention is not really big, but it works fine: if the sun shines, the sun produces some electrical energy by a small photovoltaic panel. The Panel delivers 12 V and 20 Watts under a load of more than 1 Amp. The voltage rises to 18 V without load. So I selected 24 Volt ventilators, running very quiet with 18 V. The ventilators are dimensionated to change the whole volume of air in a room in less than one hour. A Tiny Control box stops Brown out conditions and shall deliver some ...

All regions the world over with high temperature weather are suffering from consumed power by air conditioners, where this consumed power is localized in a compressor. This design is generated to solve this problem.

It is a simple solar collector that is made of metal with good conductivity and coated with a black color to collect more sunlight. This collector is adopted over the base of multi Stirling engines so this collector will be too hot when it is subjected to sunlight the order that is used to operate all Stirling engines. all Stirling engines are connected with each other by a single crank shaft (such as with internal combustion engines). The output of the crank shaft is connected ...

1. Nature of Technology/Product
The Solar Mill concept is a method of integrating two different forms of solar energy collection into one efficient system. This coupling enables us to harvest energy from a wider range in the electromagnetic spectrum. This is achieved by modifying current solar panel design to reflect long wavelength electromagnetic radiation using thin film technology that is already commercially in use. In modern skyscraper designs windows are often given this thin film coating to reflect light outside the visible spectrum and prevent the building from heating up. In our application rather than the reflected radiation being undesirable, we are utilizing the pressure from it to turn the mill like structure. Using solar panels as the ...

My Solar Tracking Window Unit is a solar tracking system that hangs out of a window and tracks the sun using a method of triagularzation. It consist of three sensors: one on the right, one one the left, and one in the top center of the solar panel, Two servos are use to rotating the solar panel. Also One servo is attached at the base to rotate the panel left and right. Another servo is attached at behind the solar panel to turn it up and down.The solar tracking system is attached to an actuator moving up and down so that it can be taken in and out of windows. The Window Solar tacker contains a battery for energy ...

Solar Turbines are a self-contained system for utilizing environmentally available radiant energy to provide a new source of electricity. The lightweight device relies on a 19th-century concept that uses 21st-century technology. As a renewable source of energy, the Solar Turbine can generate electricity for ground-based units or on spacecraft. Essentially a cross between a modified radiometer and an otheoscope, the Solar Turbine incorporates temperature sensitive materials, unique turbine vane design, fractal-like geometries, magnetic bearings, and supercapacitors.

In addition to energy from the sun, full-scale use of other forms of radiant energy is possible. This expands the range of use to a multitude of environments, in particular space. Due to the variety of radiation and the intrinsic vacuum, space may ...
