Solar Revolution – Sphelar : Spherical Solar Cell : DigInfo

May 20, 2011 by  
Filed under Wind and Solar DigInfo News Embracing the move towards renewable energy sources, Kyosemi have revolutionized the design of the traditional solar cell, increasing it’s power generation efficiency and paving the way for innovative applications and a more economical use of raw materials. Sphelar is a spherical micro solar cell, which unlike traditional flat solar cells, can effectively harness reflected and diffused solar light as well as direct light from all directions. Each cell, is 1 to 1.5 mm and can be connected in parallel or in series, allowing for a limitless range of shapes and uses including flexible solar cells, round solar cells, or power-generating windows for buildings or offices while maintaining a certain level of transparency. Also, compared to the production process for traditional solar cells there is a dramatic reduction in the amount of wasted silicon. “In the process of producing spherical spolar cells, molten silicon is used. It’s dripped from an elevated position, and crystallizes as a sphere in mid-air, so using this process no silicon is wasted in the production of solar cells.” Kyosemi have also developed the SphelarVoice which is a battery-free wireless audio optical information system that receives information via infrared rays. The SphelarVoice uses an array of LEDs to emit a light signal which is recieved by the solar cells, converted into an electrical signal on the battery-free wireless handset and sent to the speaker.

How to make solar panels. You’ll need: Solar Cells (The 0.5 volt / 3.6 Amp type) Soldering Iron 2 x Perspex sheets at least 3mm thick EVA material Araldite or silicon sealant Heat Gun / Hair Dryer Material for spacer ‘beading’ Further SOLAR RESOURCE INFO: This part will be covering the soldering, wire connections and EVA applying to the solar panels. The cells are wired up in a series configuration resulting in a theoretical 8 volts from 16 cells. However in extreme sunshine this can result in a 10 volt reading. Please Rate and Sub for more videos 🙂 Cost for all materials was approx £40.

Solar Impulse lands in Brussels

The solar-powered Solar Impulse plane landed in Brussels late on Friday on its first international flight, 13 hours after leaving Payerne airport in western Switzerland. The landing was delayed by about 40 minutes by strong winds. Take-off on Friday morning had already been delayed by fog. Bertrand Piccard, the man behind the Solar Impulse idea, described the flight as a “historic moment”, and stressed its symbolic importance for flight using renewable energy. Air traffic controllers in Brussels said bring the plane in to land was a “unique challenge.” The plane behaved “like a pedestrian on the motorway round Brussels”. Since it is so light and sensitive to turbulence, it had to keep three times the normal distance from other planes. The pilot André Borschberg was reported to be “tired” after the flight. The plane left Swiss air space at about 10.30, and flew for six hours over France, before reaching Luxembourg. It entered Belgian air space at about 17.30. From Brussels, it will attempt to fly to Paris le Bourget airport in France where it will be shown at the Paris International Airshow in June. Last July Solar Impulse made aviation history by flying through the night on solar power alone.

We are currently seeking investors, and manufacturing companies to license, purchase patent rights, or enter into a royalty agreement for this, and our other inventions from “DW”- the inventors of this innovative new product. When you think about it, almost every great advance in medicine, art, engineering, politics, religion, design, and RULES FOR THINKING, in general, has occured when people challenged the previous rules of thought and tried a new approach. Here’s a unique inexpensive use for bamboo to make a vertical windmill. This is a new “spin” for bamboo! Let’s get this inexpensive vertical wind turbine product producing power in India, Africa, Asia, and other tropical bamboo growth areas globally. (pp) The power output can be adjusted to suit the given resource of wind currents from any direction. We have a solar photovoltaic componet add-on at high speed rotation as a hybrid energy additive for storage or kick laucnhing the “first motions”! (rotational inertia) It is said that fully 70% of the economy in areas of India come from bamboo products. Here’s one that produces energy & money long after it’s built. In addition, solar cells have been shown to last 25 years or more, so the additional high rpm solar umbrella on top, is a must! With this VAWT, ALL WINDS ARE ACCEPTED FROM ALL DIRECTIONS! (no tail fin needed) Also, this VAWT has easy, low to the ground maintenance, –and cheap materials & as always, it’s “cost per watt” to the bottem $$$$$$- line. To capture a

Solar Panels | How to build a Solar Panel from Solar Cells DIY Part 1

Filed under Wind and Solar {Make Solar Panels|Save Energy Now|Solar Panel Information|Your Own Solar Panels|How To Solar Panels} .How to build a Solar Panel from Solar Cells DIY Part 1 This is a video of how I build solar panels from single solar cells wired in series. This is a great DIY “do it yourself” Green power project. These solar panels are very powerful and following these steps you will be able to make them for 1/3 of what they sell them for in the stores. If your looking to get off the grid or just drop your electric bill this is perfect for you! Stay tuned for up and coming parts. I will seal these solar panels and test them in up and coming videos. We will even show how we install it on my own home and how I connect it to our grid tie inverter. I hope you enjoy the video. All the best, -Pete mixcatcom

Fifty years inthe making, solar-power cells are still flat, rigid, and ugly. But new research shows how they could be made lightweight, flexible, and transparent. These innovations could expand solar-cell use to things like solar fabrics and power generating windows.

Residential Solar Panels – Build Residential Solar Power Energy

EarthForEnergy.AllReviewed.Net – Residential solar panels are easy to build in your own home workshop, and are much cheaper to build yourself than than if you were to buy them commerically. You can build renewable solar power energy in your backyard, or put in up on your roof. Everything is covered in this guide including how to protect your solar cells and get government grants to pay for your project. If you want to, you can build many of these and link them to create large solar cells capable of powering your home appliances. Or you can make travel solar cells for power on roadtrips. You can also sell them for profit. Check out the link above to learn more. HOpe you like it!
