Stand alone power! Can I shout it loud enough. Look at the ideas people are working on right now!
Rawlemon Spherical Solar Energy Generator, developed by German architect Andre’ Broessel. It concentrates light by 10,000 times and is 35% more efficient than current solar panels. Amazingly it is able to operate on cloudy days. http://youtu.be/YHldwuCnCxg
The artificial leaf developed by Harvard professor Daniel Nocera, has the ability to replicate photosynthesis. Solar panels charge it up during the day and at night you are using fuel that the artificial leaf made. The artificial leaf makes oxygen and hydrogen water is required about 10 to 15 drinking bottles worth, for a family home. This has the potential to replace our current battery storage system. http://you.be/J556uXwrjll
Do you know what this all means for Australia, our stand alone power will reduce in cost. At the moment Aussies pay $30,000 for an average 3 bedroom home to be off the power grid. Stand alone power already pays for itself then gets cheaper. I wonder how cheap stand alone power will be in 5 years?
These clever Aussies can install stand alone power for you. Enviroshop 1300 30 58 33 Rainbow Power Company 02 6689 1430 Off-Grid Energy Australia 1300 334 839 There are more online type in stand alone power, too easy.
