Zorzi alleges that this will enable the system to repressurize itself, drawing its energy from ambient air heat.
Directory:Solar > Directory:Concentrated Solar Power > Directory:Cool Earth Solar - Company has developed an inflatable solar concentrator technology that slashes materials costs, making solar farms competitive with commercial electricity generation systems within three years.
Directory:Ocean Wave Energy > Directory:GyroWaveGen(tm) - Innovation uses a gyroscopic flywheel to provide the stationary position against which the oscillations of the wave motion can then be converted to usable energy. Owners of 1982 patent now looking to take improved design to market.
Directory:Secondary Oscillations > OS:Milkovic-Berrett Secondary Oscillator Generator - Brian Berrett of Lehi, Utah has built a two-wheel device that uses the two-stage mechanical oscillator principle set forth by Mikovic. The electrical output from the secondary wheel is far in excess of the electrical input required to maintain the primary pendulum oscillation on the first wheel.
Directory:Solar > OS:Steven E. Jones Solar Funnel for Cooking - Prof. Steven E. Jones (of 9/11-demolition fame) presents a method for building a cooking device that is safe and low-cost, easy to make, yet very effective in capturing the sun's energy for cooking and for pasteurizing water. Requires cardboard, tin foil, black paint, and a mason jar.
