We combine a novel solar-concentrator with a novel clothes dryer.

1) Thin mirrors in our solar concentrator panel (1.5 X 3.5 meters) track the sun from dawn to dusk, focusing the sunlight onto a black absorber pipe that discharges heat-transfer fluid @ 400°F. "Sunfunnel", like a glass pup-tent, is novel in low cost, self-cleaning, needs no maintenance, and offers an operating life of 4 decades. Each panel supplies some 3 kW of heat; one may use dozens of such panels, depending on the power need... and roof area.

2) Our clothes dryer is powered by the solar-heated fluid through an air heat exchanger. It is unique in two ways: 1) uses little power: being the first dryer to receive ...

Harvesting energy efficiently is of paramount importance to maximize energy production efficiency. In order to produce energy freely I have successfully developed a new concept after spending several years to research.

How it works: Rotor coils rotate counter clockwise reaction of that makes permanent magnet rotor rotate in clockwise direction. This motion of permanent magnet rotor causes reaction in outer rotor in clockwise direction which causes a current generated in outer coils.

The energy that produces electricity comes from reaction (Newton’s third law). Every electric motor has reaction; this reaction force is lost to move earth for a minuscule amount of distance, if motor is attached rigidly to earth by mountings. Famous examples of reaction forces in moving vehicle ...

This turbine differs that has two additional elements - a turbo-expander in the center and jet cuts on blades. The turbo expander absorbs wind energy. Thus the non-working center of the turbine becomes effective. In some versions, the fairing itself will have grooves absorbing wind energy.

Blades of the turbine have cuts which open cavities inside the blades. The stream of air comes inside the blade and presses inside too. Thus the area of pressure of a wind increases almost in 2 times without change of a configuration of the blade. The wind presses on the bottom and top surface simultaneously from within. Accordingly the capacity of the turbine increases maximum in 2 times too, minimum on 50 % depending ...

Problem Statement:
Over 600 million Africans lack access to electricity; 80 million of these are Nigerians. This forces families and local street food vendors to spend a huge part of their income continuously on fuel in kerosene lamps for lighting. Mobile phone use is on the rise too and possessing one entails locating electricity to recharge which is even more expense and difficult.

Our Product:
Ina Lite is a sustainable, affordable, portable, lightweight, thermoelectric generator that harnesses heat energy to generate electricity which is accessible from a USB power port.

How it works:
-The User places the copper conductor in the heat source
-Heat is then converted to electricity through the thermoelectric generator
-The energy generated is channeled to a ...

Desert regions are excellent places to generate solar power, as the sun shines directly and uninterruptedly during the day. These areas are also the most dusty places in the world due to the prevailing drought. The sand and dust particles clearly hinder the generation of electricity, as the sun's rays are deflected or obscured. PV and CSP system operators are thus forced to constantly clean the surfaces of solar systems with water in order to minimise yield losses. Otherwise they are threatened with yield losses of up to 1 percent per day if the collector surfaces are not cleaned.

But this again causes enormous O&M costs, because water is a precious commodity in desert regions. At least because the ...

Here we present a modification in the elevator (lift) which can easily harvest the waste energy when the lift will be in operation, which will be due to the Recyclable Triboelectric materials. This modification increases the energy efficiency of the building. There is waste of energy during the up and down motion of an elevator and some amount of this energy can be easily harvested by this modification in the elevator.

Here we will be introducing the concept of Triboelectric Nanogenerator. Basically, triboelectric nanogenerator is a concept of generation of electricity by having rubbing action between two triboelectric materials or either when they come in contact and separated, there is an electron transfer between these materials, which can be ...

A device that stores energy in particles suspended in an insulating media, that travels around a storage unit comprised of an endless loop. The particle mutual repulsion keeps the particles from clumping or settling. The energy is imparted to each particle by a diode pumped solid-state ultraviolet irradiation device, while the media movement is accelerated to high speed. Once the storage media has completed a loop, resulting in a fully charged battery. The Ionized particles thus remain suspended in the media indefinitely, until discharge is implemented. The charged particles progress over a antenna where their energy is read by small signal amplifiers then fed to oscillation electronics to produce a viable output voltage. The media is advanced at slow ...

The plan is to develop a refined HPWH optimized for a home with a PV system in three major ways not found on typical HPWHs. It is significantly more efficient than current HPWHs since it can extract heat from water as well as air, it can store low-cost energy to reduce use of higher cost energy, and it can talk to the web and the grid to “know” when to store and when to use energy for the best savings from the PV system. This is an improvement over current HPWHs because it eliminates most of the fan noise and cold air they produce. With higher efficiency, better use of available energy, and less noise, this design will advance ...

Noise Pollution is the biggest problem faced by all the countries and all of them are investing a huge amount of money as well as time to solve the problem of pollution. Noise to electricity is not only solves one of the greatest problem of noise pollution but also gives the most demand able output which is electricity.

A loudspeaker (or speaker) is a transducer, which converts an electrical signal into sound waves. Since noise is also a form of sound wave or mixture of different kinds of waves, which gets wasted in the environment, so by law of conservation of energy it can be converted into another form of energy i.e. electrical energy, so by using a speaker ...

Over two billion people suffer from the effects of water scarcity and the vast majority of those affected live in coastal areas in developing countries and remote communities. Seawater desalination is an excellent potential solution, but desalination systems require a connection to a strong and reliable electrical grid for their power supply.

Because our target customers typically lack sufficient grid capacity and cannot afford the capital or time required to build and deploy grid-connected systems, Resolute Marine has devised a unique solution to this problem - the world’s first wave-driven desalination system (Wave2O™) that can be deployed quickly, operate completely “off-grid” and supply large quantities of clean fresh water at competitive cost.

Our solution has the unique advantage of ...
