Reinventing the Food Cycle

horse

Food going to waste is a problem in the US and elsewhere in the developed world. However, the High-solids Organic-waste Recycling System with Electrical Output device, or HORSE for short, developed by Impact Bioenergy, could go a long way towards alleviating this problem on the consumer side.

Portable Wind Turbine

phon

There are quite a few portable solar power solutions on the market, but ones that harness wind for energy are much more scarce. That is why the new device called Trinity is pretty unique. It was designed by the firm Janulus from Minnesota and will be available on the market as soon as the company collects enough investor funds to begin large scale production.

Manual Dishwasher Saves Water and Electricity

ext

On the whole, dishwashers are better than hand washing dishes when it comes to water efficiency, though it is harder to figure out which method is more energy efficient. The new dishwashing device called Circo Independent, designed by Chen Levin, takes electricity needed to heat the water out of the equation, making using it a pretty sustainable choice.

Low Loss Sunlight to Energy Conversion

wire

Currently available solar panel arrays still have the drawback of loosing lots of heat in the sunlight to energy conversion process, because of the thermodynamic inefficiencies of the process of converting the incoming energy to power. This could soon be a thing of the past though, since a team of scientists at the University of Bayreuth have created a super-efficient light-energy transport conduit. (more…)

Needless to say, a lot more people would likely choose to install solar panels on their roofs, if they had viable information as to how much power they can realistically expect to get from them. Solar panels are expensive after all. Now, Google is starting a new venture called Project Sunroof, which will go a long way towards remedying this problem.
