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 ...

The purpose of the solar-silo is to decrease the geological footprint of solar arrays (using existing technologies) while maintaining maximum array output, eliminating solar tracking and reducing maintenance.

A solar-silo is a silo-shaped structure having a clear geodesic domed roof surrounding a solar array positioned around the inside perimeter with a clear cylindrical column containing a light refracting medium in the center of the structure.

Each geodesic segment of the clear geodesic domed roof has an attached Fresnel lens with its focal point passing through the top of the light refracting column (with only the top of the refracting column illuminated by the magnified light of the Fresnel lens). The refraction column consists of a closed clear cylindrical container, with a ...

Our off-grid tiny home designs will be on a trailer powered by solar energy and propane. The goal is to use the latest in renewable technology to create a daily living space that is equal or better in providing comfort and the convenience of a larger home. The main difference between a Solarcycle tiny home design and other tiny homes is our focus on treating the home as a thermodynamic project involving long- term tiny home living issues such as waste management, ventilation, condensation, ergonomics, accessibility, energy efficiency, insulation, safety, and manufacturability. Right now, our prototype tiny home will include an incinerator toilet, solar power storage, propane heating and cooking, an energy recovery ventilator, LED lighting, and Aerogel insulation.

Idea - Near bodies of water (oceans, lakes, rivers) where unwanted algae blooms flourish seasonally, build oil-producing manufacturing facilities which utilize algae that is deliberately produced in or near those facilities as a raw material resource.

https://hub.globalccsinstitute.com/publications/realistic-technology-and-engineering-assessment-algae-biofuel-production/62-current-state-algae-biofuels-industry

Run these manufacturing facilities 24/7 as regular oil-producing operations and where algae is deliberately grown and then used to manufacture oil, and where the spent algae is used to produce marketable fertilizers. Then, when unwanted algae blooms appear in the adjacent bodies of water, continuously siphon off the algae-infested water, strain the unwanted algae out, return the clean water to the adjacent water body, and then "add" that "strained and unwanted algae" to the 24/7 manufacturing operations that already depend on algae ...

ecoSPEARS is a cleantech venture committed to green, sustainable remediation technologies for the permanent extraction and destruction of PCBs, dioxins, and other toxic chlorinated contaminants from the environment – forever.

71% of Earth’s surface is covered in water, of which only 3% is freshwater. Of that, less than 1% is accessible for human consumption. Freshwater is a limited resource and environmental toxins such as PCBs contaminate our water and the fish we eat.

In 2014, an EPA study found that 94% of fish tissue sampled from US waterways contained PCBs and other toxic chemicals. PCBs are now considered the most widespread contaminant in the world being used by every industrialized nation. Once PCBs into our waterways, they virtually remain ...

Just like the earth, space has garbage too. The junk or garbage are called Space debris. Right now some tens of millions of pieces of space junk are circling our planet—broken satellites, rocket parts, and other human-made materials trapped in orbit. For many reasons removing those debris has become very difficult. The number of debris made it very difficult to be removed.

This project provide alternative solution to this problem. The project objective is managing space junk that are becoming problem to space exploration by directing the space debris from earth's orbit to the sun's path. Researches has shown that The recent uptick in solar flares and other activity on the sun could one day cripple satellites or knock ...

This design is for a TV series, “Summer is Coming”, depicting young people in effective action on our current climate crisis. This series contains no zombies, robots run amuck, or dragons. It does contain believable characters in situations that could actually happen in the near future. In addition, it does contain a main character that is an Artificial Intelligence, JanetA (graphic).

This series invites young people to buy into the idea of applying their life’s work to areas that will help address our climate crisis. The specific areas depicted are taken from widely recognized references such as Hawken, “Drawdown”.

The model we are using for “Buy-In” is given in the attached YouTube video.

Too long, we have been using ...

The tactical smart gyroballcam grenade, or TSGBCG for short, has 2 camera sensors located on each opposing side of the gyroscope which include capabilities of infrared light, ultra violet and night vision incorporating zoomable abilities. TSGBCG manafactures 3 various models for varied situations: smoke dispersement grenade, a detonation grenade and gas dispersement grenade.

TSGBCGs use sensored detonation abilities or disbursement capabilities. TSGBCG is loaded onto a smart docking/charging holster on your hip or thigh. Hip/thigh charging docking station clips around thigh/hip with 3 adjustable comfort straps. Hip/thigh docking station plugs into an outlet to regain charge/power. Hip/thigh docking station can load charge 4/6 TSGBCGs. Once emptied of disbursement agents TSGBCGs can be refilled via leg docking station or on ...

Using big data, people will get optimized transportation to work and back home (rush hours) by public and shared transportation means. Every day, each individual will be picked up from home at a predetermined time and brought back by the end of the day. Every car driver will share his car taking with him people requiring the same route. All transportation to work and back home will be free of charge. Car drivers will not necessarily drive their car every day. People will only have to input changes to their daily routine. Updates regarding next morning means of transportation will be received in the ...

Good News! The first practical lightweight jet-powered VTOL "car", "aircraft" is finally within reach. I'm presenting to all of you, an opportunity for one corporation or investor to make aviation history by capturing the elusive practical flying car that has been sought after for many decades. I am writing to you not as a professional engineer, designer or manufacturer. I am a total amateur, a hobbyist that has followed aviation accomplishments since childhood. But I've pursued my own independent line of reasoning, off from the beaten path of conventional thinking and I have designed and patented (U.S. Patent: US 6,907,723 B1 ) The Pulsed Turbine Rotor Engine, which I think will solve the technical issues involved in designing and ...
