Heat Your Room with 1 Candle plus Flowerpots, Nuts and Washers

Heat Your Room with 1 Candle plus Flowerpots, Nuts and Washers
After a crazy week when half a million people visited our site to check out the video, 'How to Heat Your Room for 8 Pence a Day', we thought you would appreciate a refinement of this idea that generates even more heat from a candle by increasing the thermal mass within the first pot. Please share this page too so that those who saw the first post can also test out this new design. Putting it all Together The process for putting together the candle heater is very simple: What You Need Some stainless steel nuts, washers and a bolt plus three flowerpots! One 4? Assembly Instructions I think that the easiest way for you to learn how to put one of these heaters together is to follow the cutout image (to the left) I used from the heatstick.com site: Making the stand I found the simplest stand to make is to purchase three 4? Then just put the three braces together with the middle brace facing the opposite direction and bend the outside two just enough to support the heater. How it Works Related:  EnergyTrucs bidules

Clean Water Energy 10 astuces vieilles de plus de 100 ans A la fin des années 1880, les fabricants de cigarettes ont commencé à mettre des bouts de carton dans les paquets pour les solidifier. Très rapidement, ces petits bouts de carton ont été décorés de petits quizz, de dessins ou de jolies filles. Il était même possible de les collectionner. Cette pratique a continué jusqu'en 1940. En 1910, certaines compagnies ont imprimé une série de cartes "How-to", ou "Comment faire". #1. "Remplir une bouteille à goulot large avec de l'eau chaude presque à ras bord. #2. "Dissoudre 450g de sel et 225g de sel d'ammoniaque (chlorure d'ammonium) dans deux litres d'eau. #3. "Il faut placer les œufs dans une boîte remplie de sel, qu'on placera ensuite dans un endroit sec et frais. #4.

Colossal Magnetic Levitation Wind Turbine Proposed It's a vision of a magnetically levitated wind turbine that can generate one gigawatt of power (enough to power 750,000 homes). This is the device proposed by a new Arizona-based company, MagLev Wind Turbine Technologies. The company claims that it can deliver clean power for less than one cent per kilowatt hour using this wind turbine. Magnetic levitation is a very efficient method of capturing wind energy. The company also points out that building a single huge turbine like this reduces construction and maintenance costs, and it requires less land space than hundreds of conventional turbines. There has been speculation that turbines like these would use "full-permanent" magnets, meaning there are no electromagnets, only cleverly placed permanent ones (probably Halbach arrays). China already has Maglev wind turbines in operation, see: The World's First "Magnetic Levitation" Wind Turbines Unveiled in China. Web site: MagLev Wind Turbine Technologies :: Via Business Wire

Urine Powered Generator: 6 Hours Of Power On 1 Litre Of Pee While the mainstream media continues to push the idea that we are facing an energy crisis due to a lack of resources, more people are actually looking into alternative energy and discovering that there really is no energy crisis at at all. We aren’t facing a lack of resources, we have multiple means to provide energy to billions of people without damaging the environment and diminishing resources. . These methods use very little input, and in some cases achieve infinite output. One of these ways to generate energy is through urine. It sounds a little nasty, but the story is quite remarkable. Approximately 1 year ago, a group of 14 year old’s from Lagos, Nigeria, developed a urine powered generator that can provide 6 hours of power on 1 liter of pee. The model you see in this article was created by four girls, Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola. Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which separates out the hydrogen. Related Energy article: Sources:

6 Cents Per kWh: World's Largest Solar Project Unveiled Stirling Energy and Southern California Edison have announced they plan to construct a 4,500-acre solar generating station in Southern California. When completed, the proposed power station would be the world's largest solar facility, capable of producing more electricity than all other U.S. solar projects combined. They promise a cost of electricity of 0.06$/kWh. The dish collectors are unique because they make no use of photovoltaics, instead they use mirrors to focus the sun's rays on a Stirling engine. This heats hydrogen gas inside the engine which expands. The 20-year power purchase agreement signed today, which is subject to California Public Utilities Commission approval, calls for development of a 500-MW solar project 70 miles northeast of Los Angeles using innovative Stirling dish technology. "We are especially pleased about the financial benefits of this agreement for our customers and the state," said Alan Fohrer, SCE chief executive officer. :: Renewable Energy Access
