  • Solar Fire: free and powerful solar energy with open source low tech

    5 billion people live in the world’s Sun Belt, yet many have a critical lack of energy. Help spread and open source a cost-effective, high-power solar concentrator that can be built anywhere. This can help decrease energy poverty for millions of people and reinforce autonomy. To do this we need to build a machine and document the construction.

  • Introduction of realism into the capabilities of alternative energy proposals

    When the subject of renewable energy is broached by anyone with a financial interest in one particular form of replacement for fossil fuels I suspect it is tempting to exaggerate the potential of such replacement, especially if the source of finance is controlled by people who only partly understand the science. When realism is suggested the temptation is to adopt a position of denial. There is one thing that could ameliorate this situation, that is an increase in efficiency of the generation devices to the extent that the fundamental relationship between work and electrical power output is challenged. I’ve found a practical way of achieving this.

  • Support the DESERTEC project

    The DESERTEC concept is a plan for how to supply Europe's electricity that makes use of Concentrating Solar Power from the countries around the Mediterranean, as well as other renewable technologies. Several European and North African countries support the project.

    You can support DESERTEC by passing the word on and trying to get the UK government to participate.

  • Energy Production from Waste

    According to experts from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, by 2020 the UK’s waste could be used to provide fuel to supply one fifth of the nation’s energy needs.
