Oriental Hornet: Expert Solar Power Harvester.

Well, time for some good old Biomimicry

Next step is embedded Oriental Hornets in the human body

Is that a medical device or what?

Energy Harvesting – Free Power From Thermal, Kinetic & Solar Energy

Do you have an idea to harvest energy from Thermal, Kinetic & Solar Energy?

Check out this site from Linear Technology

Look at the case studies and ask for free samples to test out your theories.

Make the world self sufficient in energy one person at a time.

Solar Steam Cooking – Evacuated Glass Tube Collector

My thoughts today on form of Solar Steam Cooking.

It forms the basis for a study on types of solar cooking available for setting up an easily transportable module to serve at least 50 to 100 people per day

One such system is with a Evacuated Glass Tube Collector

Quoting from the article the system

  • Does not require reflectors
  • No need to track the sun
  • Food up to 5 kg per day
  • Can be use as a split system
  • Can be used like conventional cooking

Other potential uses

  • Water distillation
  • Water pasteurization
  • Sterilization
  • Food drying
  • Weed control
  • Power generation

Using extreme conditions to the advantage of the world

We have extreme conditions in the world

  • Hurricanes
  • Excessive Rain
  • Storms
  • Fires
  • Excessive snow
  • Floods
  • Volcano’s
  • Earthquakes
  • Winds
  • Excessive heat

Our predictive technologies are extremely accurate at this point to pinpoint exact locations ahead of time

Can we use these natural extremes to benefit the world?

Can we have towable, floatable or air-liftable structure which can convert this extreme natural energy into storable usable energy?

A few thoughts on these

  • Flying, floating or wheeled ¬†wind farms
  • Ditto the same for Solar Farms
  • Floating tidal power generator barges?
  • Gigantic steam turbines powered off forest fires
  • Novel energy generators from the excessive snow

I am sure some, somewhere is already working on these to bring it to the world someday

SIN Numbers for Solar Panels – Turning problems into opportunity

Reference: http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/editors/24591/

Did anyone know there was a black market for Solar Panels. Obviously there are entreprenuers who have found a lucrative market in helping themselves to Solar Panels from defenseless owners like wineries.

As usual innovative entrepreneurs have turned this problem into an opportunity by building Solar Security Systems.

There is a move to create a Solar Registry to keep track of Solar Panels in use in the country.

Well how about having a tracking chip embedded into the Solar Panel with GPS and an addressable node.

Lets look at the advantages. This chip could function like a SIN Number (no pun intended) as well as allow tracking the location of the Solar Panel for automated positioning and achieve optimum efficiency depending on its location on the globe.

There will always be thieves waiting to prey on the gullible and there will always be the Good Samaritans ready to provide deterrents and in the process profit form the venture legitimately.

Smart Cities here we come.
