Future Energy Power Systems

IBM solar collector magnifies sun by 2,000x (without cooking itself), costs 3x less than similar systems


German Consortium Plans to Harvest Wave Energy With Silicon Sheets - "In a Bosch laboratory, a first demonstrator model is already showing how wave energy can be converted into electricity" using the dielectric elastomer transducers...The first true-to-scale model of a wave-power generator is slated to be launched in the wave channel of the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg in 2014. ...The target efficiency for converting mechanical energy into electrical power is 50 percent...
Build-it-yourself wind powered generator schematics.
When you place something as large and complex as a tidal generator on the sea floor, there are always concerns about how it will affect the local ecosystem. This is what has been worrying environmentalists and the team at Marine Current Turbines — the creators of the SeaGen tidal turbine. However, this week, environmental consultancy Royal Haskoning officially gave the turbine the green light (pun intended).
WaterSeer is a low-tech, low-cost atmospheric water condenser that could help create water self-sufficiency in communities around the world.
