Future Energy eNews




October 2017 TOC






We are happy to announce that the University of Maryland, down the street from our IRI offices, took Second Place in the annual USDOE Solar Decathalon this month beat only by the Swiss. It is a fantastic competition among colleges and universities to design and build a full-size, solar-powered house on the site of the event. Visit the website for a short video and more information. Another interesting inspiration is the group of luminaries who have banded together under Director Tom DeLonge's guidance for a TotheStarAcademy which have high hopes for solving all of the space travel issues themselves. Nice video on their homepage. Onward and upward!


Our first story #1 this month upgrades the previous report that FE eNews did in June 2015, Enews which included a short video to the MIT experiment proving that electricity can be generated from a coated polymer, expanding and contracting, using a piezoelectric attachment. Now Yale and Columbia University predict that such generators can be placed on the surface of reservoirs to yield up to 70 per cent of the electrical needs for the US. Certainly renewable energy by any definition.


The Story #2 celebrates the world's first floating wind farm, which in this age of rising sea levels from climate change, is a hopeful development that can ride the tide. Hats off to the Scottish Hywind farm for generating a 30 MW capacity in this manner.


Story #3 is a major development in bioenergetics. Now electrotherapy has gone where no electrons have gone before, in restoring consciousness by stimulating the vagus nerve of vegetative state patients with ever increasing amounts of microcurrent. A related story reflects a backyard walking experience which everyone can have to absorb earth ground electrons, which are natural antioxidants.


Our Story #4 introduces the first electric dump truck which even uses the engine in braking downhill to recharge batteries. This leads us into the larger picture of Story #5 that predicts the end of the fossil fuel internal combustion engine, with car makers like General Motors and Volvo making only electric cars by 2023. Of course, the electric car charging station corridor coast to coast is now a hot topic in  Time  as well as in the Wall Street Journal WallStreetJournal and Fortune magazine Fortune


Onward and upward!

1) Energy Harvested from Evaporation Could Power most of the US




By Columbia University, Office of Public Affairs, October 2017


A recently published study estimates that up to 70 percent of the United States' electricity needs could be met through a newly devised system that harvests power from evaporation. This novel renewable power source uses bacterial spores to generate electricity and can sit on top of lakes and reservoirs.



Back in 2015, Ozgur Sahin and a team of scientists from Columbia University revealed an exciting new potential source of renewable energy. The team had created a way to generate energy from the natural process of evaporation using a certain type of bacterial spore. These spores expand and contract as they absorb evaporating moisture, and this oscillating motion could be harnessed to generate a small amount of power.

The team developed a device that held these spores and to prove the system's effectiveness created a miniature car that ran on this evaporation energy system. At the time the technology was an interesting concept but one not hugely appropriate for large-scale implementation.


2) World's First Floating Wind Farm Powers Up off the Coast of Scotland


By Michael Irving, New October 18, 2017


Offshore wind farms like the Gemini facility in the Netherlands can tap into the higher average wind speeds over the ocean, but unfortunately these facilities can only be built in relatively shallow water. Floating turbines can help harvest wind energy from above deeper waters, so to that end, the world's first floating wind farm has just fired up off the coast of Scotland.


Floating some 25 km (15.5 mi) off the coast of Aberdeenshire, Scotland, the Hywind farm has a capacity of 30 MW and will supply power to about 22,000 homes. Spaced over an area of about 4 sq km (1.5 sq mi), the farm is made up of five 6-MW turbines that stand 253 m (830 ft) tall, taking advantage of average wind speeds of 10 m (33 ft) per second.

While this pilot facility is a far cry from the 630-MW London Array, the world's largest offshore wind farm, it does have a key advantage: its floating turbines can operate in water up to 800 m (2,625 ft) deep, 10 times deeper than the upper limit of fixed facilities. That drastically widens the net of viable locations for offshore wind farms, a technology with incredible energy-generation potential.






3) Restoring Consciousness with Electrotherapy



Published on Cell Press Current Biology

Researchers have developed a device that can  rescue failing body functions with electrotherapy.



Patients lying in a vegetative state present severe impairments of consciousness [1] caused by lesions in the cortex, the brainstem, the thalamus and the white matter [2] . There is agreement that this condition may involve disconnections in long-range cortico-cortical and thalamo-cortical pathways [3] . Hence, in the vegetative state cortical activity is 'deafferented' from subcortical modulation and/or principally disrupted between fronto-parietal regions. Some patients in a vegetative state recover while others persistently remain in such a state. The neural signature of spontaneous recovery is linked to increased thalamo-cortical activity and improved fronto-parietal functional connectivity [3] . The likelihood of consciousness recovery depends on the extent of brain damage and patients' etiology, but after one year of unresponsive behavior, chances become low [1] . There is thus a need to explore novel ways of repairing lost consciousness. Here we report beneficial effects of vagus nerve stimulation on consciousness level of a single patient in a vegetative state, including improved behavioral responsiveness and enhanced brain connectivity patterns.

4) World's First Electric DumpTruck Uses Gravity Power to Recharge



By Mark Dansie,  Revolution 


The E-Dumper weighs a whopping 45 tons and has 700 kWh of storage capacity. That's as much as eight Tesla Model Svehicles. To ensure it is as environmentally-friendly as possible, the E-Dumper's base is a used Komatsu HD 605-7 dumper truck. The original diesel engine has been removed and replaced with a chassis for battery packs that will power the new E-Dumper.


Its tires measure over 6.5 feet in diameter, and the driver is required to climb nine stairs to reach the cabin. Its size and strength ensure it can transportmaterials from a mountain ridge to a valley 20 times per day. This is important, as moving materials from the slopes of the Chasseral to the Ciments Vigier SA cements works near Biel is what the e-dump truck will be doing for the next 10 years.

Because the vehicle is electric, there is no need to "heat up" the brakes when descending. This is because the enormous electric engine acts as a generator and recharges the battery pack. That same energy is then used to help the vehicle travel back up the hill. Phys reports, "If all goes as planned, the electric dumper truck will even harvest more electricity while traveling downhill than it needs for the ascent. Instead of consuming fossil fuels, it would then feed surplus electricity into the grid."

The costly venture is being spearheaded by Ciments Vigier SA. Lithium Storage GmbH from Illnau and the Kuhn Group have been hired to "get the ball rolling," so to speak. The project is also backed by Empa; battery expert Marcel Held is in charge of safety assessments.

5)  Why 2017 is the Beginning of the End of the Internal Combustion Engine


By Peter Holley The Washington Post October 11, 2017

Article Link 



Electric vehicles no longer seem like a futuristic fever dream, but they remain a rarity on most American city streets, accounting for less than 1 percent of the nation's auto sales, according to the automotive website


Yet, when future auto historians look back, they may pinpoint 2017 as the year electric vehicles went from a promising progressive fad to an industry-wide inevitability.


The tipping point, experts say, follows three developments, each rippling outward with economic and cultural consequences.
