To begin with, I'm very grateful to the Mohammed Bin Rashid Initiative for Global Prosperity for granting me the opportunity to express a solution I've discovered pertaining to solar energy disadvantages ( as in inefficiency, high cost, unreliability during rainfall season and winter, and so on as discussed below). I'm a victim of electric power outage which is as a result of power shortage due to less energy generation capacity. Today most of our energy needs are met by fossil fuels which are the major contributors of global warming. It is projected that, fossil fuels will be depleted in the next fifty to hundred years, therefore the need has arise for the world to start harnessing renewable energy sources more than before. Nuclear energy, the most promising however comes with serious problems including dangerous radioactive waste and nuclear radiation hazard. Hence the solution lies in renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal and hydroelectric power. However, solar energy is preferred here because unlike wind and hydroelectric power, solar panel can be constructed anywhere (remote areas like villages) in the world. Like any other form of renewal energy which has disadvantages, solar energy also have some disadvantages which my new invention which is in the process of patent seeks to solve those disadvantages.
DEVICE DESCRIPTION AND HOW IT WORKS
The device works by increasing electrical energy from the solar panel in a series of transformation that occurs in the power transforming unit by mechanical actions. During the daytime, electrical energy is stored in a battery for night use and days where there is rainfall. Lets consider a scenario where there is continuous rainfall for about a month, in such a situation the device would still supply continuous electrical energy for that month by automatically switching to the battery mode. It would be able to supply continuous energy for a month without sunshine.
Depending on how the transformation unit is built, it would be able to supply electrical energy to about 500 homes from five solar panels (65 inches by 39 inches, 200W) and some few batteries (for instance car batteries).
ADVANTAGES OF THIS INVENTION OVER THE TYPICAL FORM OF SOLAR ENERGY.
The device can be manufactured for the following purposes;
The world has now started to concentrate on renewable energy sources, solar energy has proven to be one of the best and I believe my invention would revolutionize the way we harness solar energy to produce electricity in a way that will address the major problems associated with solar energy. Thank you.
