The industrial designers Boyeon Kim, Jihoon Kim, Da-Woon Chun and Myung-Suk Kim have come up with a concept energy absorbing system which converts all that noise into clean energy. The new machine called Sonea, measures 450mm X 450mm X 80mm, weighing in at a whole 7kg.
Every day scientists and inventors are searching new green sources of energy to combat global warming and energy crisis. The “Green Roadway” project, as it’s dubbed, aims to string wind turbine, solar panels and geothermal devices along the endless ribbons of pavement, where they’ll be linked to produce energy for businesses, homes and even roadside [...]
Adding wind turbines to already existing electrical towers is an idea proposes at the Next Generation design competition by the winner of this year. This project is called Wind-It. “Wind-it answers one of the greatest challenges to the development of wind power: where to site wind turbines.
Australia will invest over 1 billion dollars in the world’s largest solar power station with an output of 1000 megawatts, according to the Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. The solar power plant would have three times the generating capacity of the current biggest solar-powered electricity plant, located in California.
A group of Turkish researchers believes that the Black Sea which is worlds largest dead zone due to the high amounts of toxic waste could be the most unconventional and newest source of clean energy. The researchers said that the influx of toxic waste has reduced the amount of oxygen present in water and replaced [...]
Veljko Milkovic is the inventor of this amazing 2-stage mechanical oscillator that could be a source of clean energy. The machine is composed of two parts: a pendulum and a lever. When these two elements are combined the gravitational and centrifugal forces work to produce free and clean energy.
In the Mississippi River was installed the United States’ first commercial hydrokinetic turbine which harnesses power from moving water. This turbine has a production capacity of 35 kilowatt being situated downstream from an existing hydroelectric-plant dam.
The Global energy efficiency and renewable energy Fund (GEEREF) initiated by the European Commission (EC) to supply clean energy in developing countries decided on a first set of investments worth 22 million euros. Investments, which contribute to climate change, will finance renewable energy projects at small scale in Sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia.
Israel’s largest solar installation has been inaugurated Monday, marking the cooperation between China and Israel in the clean energy field. According to official estimates, the solar project will generate up to 85,000 kilowatts of electricity per year. It was built by the Chinese company Suntech Power Holdings and was incorporated in the Israel’s national energy [...]
The researchers at the University of South Florida invented the world’s smallest solar cells, about the size of a lowercase letter, with twenty aligning to form one panel at just one inch. The researchers say that these are some of the smallest solar cells ever. These cells are indicated for many common hand-held devices like [...]
