NASA Developing Wind-Borne Power System Like Flying A Kite

NASA Developing Wind-Borne Power System Like Flying A Kite

In the childhood, almost everyone loved flying kite. NASA is bringing the childhood memories live again with their new airborne wind power system which incorporates the simplest technology of flying kite. Though it is an under-developing project but the test result of the prototype is very promising. The successful implementation will add a new phase in the evolution of renewable power generation. It will lead us to produce more efficient and sustainable energy.

ES Pipe: Waterwheel – Turns Regular Water Supply Into A Mini Hydroelectric Generator

ES Pipe: Waterwheel – Turns Regular Water Supply Into A Mini Hydroelectric Generator

Now a days many energy efficient technologies are evolving to reduce energy consumption. Today I am going to introduce a new technology which generates electricity through the pipe waterwheel. In the third world countries like in Africa or South-Eastern Asia, this technology is much more useful. There are some areas in these regions where people didn’t have the opportunity to use electricity. This technology is not the solution of grid electricity at all; rather you can use it for low energy consumption devices such as light bulb. As it can store energy in a battery, so only dc electricity will be used.

New Generation Of Fabricated And Flexible Organic Solar Cells To Increase Efficiency

New Generation Of Fabricated And Flexible Organic Solar Cells To Increase Efficiency

German researchers are developing a new generation of solar cells to improve the energy conversion efficiency. A bunch of promising researchers from the Light Technology Institute of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are the pioneers of this new project. The project is supposed to be finished in four years as it is the deal now which aims to improve the efficiency of organic solar cells to more than 10 percent. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research has already granted funding of EUR 4.25 million.

Apple Plans To Make Its Main Data Center 100% Green

Apple Plans To Make Its Main Data Center 100% Green

Although Apple has been working on multiple data centers than run on clean energy, the overall percentage of Apple facilities running on green energy is not too high. And that is precisely why Apple has been criticized in the past for relying heavily on ‘dirty energy.’ Now, it would seem that the company plans to change this.

Innovative Wind Turbine Generates Clean Water From Desert Air

Innovative Wind Turbine Generates Clean Water From Desert Air

Imagine, you’re traveling through the desert. You have drank the last drop of water from your water bottle but you are still thirsty. But you can’t find any water source around. How would you feel then? Helpless, may be! No matter what you feel like, finding fresh water in the desert is hard. Keeping that in mind, a French-based technology company is working in the United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi) to test a wind turbine which can produce drinking water from dry desert air. Though this is not a new concept but this concept is surely different from others and amazing.

Large Solar Tower To Power Las Vegas

Large Solar Tower To Power Las Vegas

Las Vegas is such a city where night turns into day. The whole city is filled with colorful lights. To lit up the lights at night continuously, huge amount of electricity is spent. To keep the pressure on traditional electricity low, a developer of large-scale solar power projects named SolarReserve announced earlier this year that it has completed the central piece in its Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project that can produce 110 megawatts of energy, and distribute the power among 75,000 homes.

Recharge Batteries Using Solar Lights : No Electricity Required!

Recharge Batteries Using Solar Lights : No Electricity Required!

An AA battery is a standard size of battery. Batteries of this size are the most commonly used type of in portable electronic devices. An AA battery is composed of a single electrochemical cell. The exact terminal voltage and capacity of an AA size battery depends on the cell chemistry. But the power of a battery is limited. Charles Reyer, a normal human being uses the same AA battery unlimited times. He just uses solar power to charge his batteries. Check out his technique.

Accordion Shaped Innovative 3D Designed Solar Tower Doubles The Solar Power

Accordion Shaped Innovative 3D Designed Solar Tower Doubles The Solar Power

Intensive researchers around the world have always focused on improving the performance of solar photovoltaic cells and bringing down their cost. According to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers, because the cost of solar panels has dropped so much, it is the time designing 3D structures to take in more light and boost power output. Now, MIT researchers test show, building cubes or towers that extend the solar cells upward in 3 dimensional configurations can provide power output ranging from double to more than 20 times that of fixed flat panels with the same base area. In simple word, in a confined area, get double power through solar energy rather than using conventional method.
