A crash course in changing the world.

Electricity from SAND..lol ..it works!

The core of this technology is simply sand.

The sand is the raw material used to make wafers that can make electricity.

Oxygen is pumped in on one side and natural gas on the other. The two combine inside the cell to create a chemical reaction that produces electricity. No burning, no combustion, no power lines from outside

A half-dozen big companies have already bought this technology at a cost of $700,000 to $800,000. But Sridhar’s (the inventor - Bloom energy) goal is a $3,000 box that anybody can use to power their home though he says home use is 10 years away.

“We believe that we can have the same kind of impact on energy that the mobile phone had on communications. Just as cell phones circ**vented landlines to proliferate telephony,

Bloom Energy will enable the adoption of distributed power as a smarter, localised energy source,” Sridhar said.
It will allow customers, he said, to “lower their energy costs, reduce their carbon footprint, improve their energy security”.

25 years or more ago I spoke to a woman who's job entailed working with the oil industry. They had a department that kept a lookout for promising alternative technologies and bought them up - to kill them off.
I fear we are suffering from an increase in that sort of thing now. It will irritate me a lot when oil companies bring these inventions out of the dark and claim Green point for themselves!

thats sad news. But proper marketing strategies on the right platform can undoubtedly get the technology out there!. At least we are aware of such so called enemies.

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More
