This page shows a new way to approach energy production, we will show new ideas for technologies for carbon neutral energy production, we will take a look at existing technologies and show ways to improve them.
Energy production is key to sustaining low Co2 levels, one day we will run out of fossil fuels and we need a sufficient replacement, that is carbon neutral, that has longevity, that is cost effective and that can also produce high levels of energy.
We will show new ways for Fresnel molten salt towers, improving solar power, wind power, sea bed hydro power, hydro electric, ring magnets, incineration, sterling engines and static tornado energy, below are some diagrams for ideas for inventions that can be made,
FRESNEL MOLTEN SALT USING RE-HEATING CYCLE
This section is about Fresnel lenses being used with Molten Salt Towers, below are some diagrams of current non reheating cycle molten salt tower technology, and there are plans for a new style of molten salt tower technology using Fresnel lenses, the advantages are the lower maintenance of having to clean all the mirror array, the concentric circles of mirrors takes a lot of maintenance and also uses a lot of water to clean them regularly, the next big advantage is the heat the Fresnel can generate can reach 2000 degrees, and finally the biggest advantage is the surface area is greatly de creased giving way for multiple towers in the same surface area, this will be beneficial for area like China who don't have more space spare.
CURRENT MOLTEN SALT TOWER, NON REHEATING CYCLE
FRESNEL MOLTEN SALT TOWER, WITH HEATING CYCLE
Fresnel lens has massive benefits over mirror array, the first is the maintenance is considerably lower and also the 2000 degree temperature is easily reached, the biggest advantage is the land impact, you can fit 10 times more molten salt towers in the same surface area as there is no need for the concentric circles array of mirrors taking all the space.

This diagram shows current technology for molten salt using heliostat mirrors to reflect the solar rays, these take up a lot of room, they are placed in concentric circles covering a huge amount of surface area, they also use a lot of water in the cleaning and maintenance
This diagram shows new ideas for technology for molten salt using Fresnel lenses to amplify the solar rays, this will use less space meaning more towers can be installed in the same surface area, this will need minimum maintenance and very little to no water to clean.
This is current molten salt tower technology, as you can see from the picture the concentric mirror array of circles takes up a very large surface area, limiting the amount of towers you can use in a small space, this also limits where we can build these devices, they are usually found in desert areas out of the way where space is abundant, this comes with logistical problems of transporting the energy created, and you can only transport so much energy with conventional connection points HVAC transmission lines, only so many mega volts can pass through these connectors, usually the limit is 700 mega wats, then if you have water to cross like sea's or oceans you will need subsea jumbo HVDC transmission lines, then you also have the electrical decompression effect and losses from transporting large amounts of electricity through wires, sent in high voltage and then converted to low voltage, there is also the cost of making these connector wires as they are some times 30" thick with many layers, they are the most complex wire system we have and are still only capable of holding a limited voltage to be passed through them.
The other problem is the electricity the mirrors use they constantly tilt to reflect the sun to a focal point, this uses hydraulics, computer systems, servers, a tracking system, a programmer and vast maintenance, this uses a lot of the electricity produced by the tower, so again Fresnel will reduce all this by only needing a conveyer system, there is no tracker needed, just a timing setting programmed into the conveyer system, maybe needs altering with each season change as the path of the sun will change slightly.
The advantage of using a Fresnel lens means that you can use a smaller surface area, fit more towers in the same space, and can build them in areas with less surface area available, cutting out the need of transporting and transporting losses over great distances, we should be using re-heating cycle as it produces free residual energy once the sun has gone down, this together with the Fresnel lens is the way forwards with molten tower technology, not only that but the maintenance for all these mirrors is vast and time consuming not to mention the amount of water needed in the constant cleaning process, Fresnel reduces all of this as there is only one lens to clean, and with it not being on the ground it does not need the same attention, water is hard to come by in the dessert so lets cut out the need for the excessive water use and lets use Fresnel instead.
STATIC TORNADO ENERGY
Static energy is underestimated, static energy is the future, using high voltage plasma can generate a lot of energy, below we will some some design ideas on how to produce and harness the static energy, this will be a design for how to produce a static tornado, we can also use radiant watts to create more energy from this.
Static plasma tornado and magnetic flux free everlasting energy, looses 10% every 100 years, it is self supporting it borrows energy from it's self to run its own system, the higher the rotational velocity the more plasma it makes, or static voltage similar to lightning, the spiral will create a tornado that will spiral to a central point at the base to be collected as energy, I'm unsure what speeds this will reach but using 20 tesla would ensure over 500MPH maybe a lot more, this will generate a high level of magnetic flux, so we are generating 3 different points of magnetic flux and we are also harvesting static plasma from the central core, 4 points of energy, uses no fuel, no combustion, no emissions, it is 100% green clean free everlasting energy.
Wind Power is a great source of energy, it is everlasting, free and abundant, there is no explosion or forces to create the energy, the problem is it takes a lot of maintenance to maintain the current wind towers, also the production uses a lot of Co2, they take up a lot of space, and there instability is a disadvantage, below we will show new designs for harnessing the wind in a more stable way, we will be also using two revers alternator motors instead of just the one, and the design change will show that ten times as many can be installed in the same surface area, these will be more stable and should last longer.
Wind power has an advantage over solar power as it is or can be 24h where as solar is only available in day light hours, below you will find a completely new way of harvesting wind, the diagram shows a wind compressor that spins a flat base circular fan designed for fast rotation, this can power a alternator motor and can be used to collect magnetic flux to generate energy, there is only 4 funnels or compression chambers on the diagram but this should be made with 8 all 45 degrees turn from another meaning you can collect the wind from 8 directions, so it can be used in any direction without the need for gears or gyros, this will produce a lot of energy, when the wind blows inside it gets compressed by the shape of the funnel and directs a jet stream directly onto the internal fan increasing rotation, this is also safer as there are no moving parts on show.
WIND COMPRESSION MAGNETIC FLUX AND OR TURBINE ENERGY GENERATOR
SEA BED HYDRO
Hydro energy has been harnessing for centuries, we have mastered dams and using hydro energy to create energy but also to control the rivers and lakes, there is only so many places you can put these before you run out of sites, new technologies are going towards waves power using the top of the oceans or seas to harness forces made from the waves, the best way to do this is to use sea bed hydro, use the current of the ocean floor together with the immense pressure, the pressure combined with the current will turn a very restricted turbine meaning it will create huge amounts of energy, this is harder to do as it needs to be sealed and have seals that are strong enough to stand the intense water pressure, we will show ways through design diagrams on how to do this, this will also be encapsulated from any marine life.
Hydro electric using gravity may be achievable by using a helter skelter design, this would all depend on the angle the water is falling at to find the ultimate speed for kinetic energy to push against the inner core turbines, also we would need to calculate the cubic mass of water passing through each terminal for the optimum flow, the larger cubic mass and the greater the angle of fall is the more pushing power against the core turbine will be achieved, this in theory should work to produce large amounts of energy, the only thing standing against it is the energy needed by the water pumps to bring the water up to the top again as this will work as a continual cycle that borrows energy from its self to power the water pumps, we would be looking to harvest the surplus energy left over after the borrowing, even if it is a small amount, it is free energy that runs 24 hours, day and night without the need of wind or solar or any combustion, it uses minimal parts and can be placed into many layers of a building still giving you the space on the roof for the solar, the dimensions or size of each machine would be similar to that of a single decker bus stood on its end, this needs testing its free energy that could last forever, hopefully the surplus energy is worth it and hopefully brings a reward.
This could maybe use a vacuum syphon this would mean that the water pump was not really needed, if we had a vacuum in the water pipe spiral and syphoned the water from the top it should indefinitely cycle without using any power or electricity, meaning it is all output energy, this could be a really good bit of technology.

Incineration is the best way to make energy, landfills are going to cause some serious problems on earth in hundreds of years, they will create fuels that are more volatile than fossil fuels, we will have solidification of battery's to nappy all forming into a new substance, and each landfill be be different, for now thou the apparent problem is the methane let of from decaying rubbish, 1 metric ton of rubbish produces 100 tons of methane, methane is 30 to 80 times more damaging as a green house gas than Co2 is, so why don't we burn it, you get 1 ton of Co2 per metric ton of rubbish, so this tells us that incineration is 3000 to 8000 times better than landfill, also we can harvest the energy from burning the rubbish using turbines, we need incineration in as many places as possible.
I know some place or companies use these landfills to harvest methane a gas that can be used for other things like indoor farming and so on, but we can harvest methane from the farmyard manure that we need to reduce as we will be using green manure and organic nutrients for farming, it will be better to incinerate rubbish instead of landfill, for many reasons mentioned above, not to mention how unbelievably easy and cool is it to make energy form our waste that we throw away, we need to address this as landfills will be or may be dangerous in many years to come.
Below you will find some diagrams of how to improve this technology

Solar Power is everlasting, we have an abundance of solar energy all over the world, if we could harness this correctly we could supply the worlds energy needs with just 1000 square kilometres, the problem is the connection to the energy grid, and transportation, we can improve solar in many ways, solar panels are great for roofs and new builds but they will not dramatically instantly lower the need for fossil fuels, also they use a lot of coal in the production and only last for 20 to 40 years.
we need a new improved industrial way of harnessing solar energy, we also need to think about the current energy climate with stocks, shares, tax and the way it is imbedded into our economics, we need an industrial solution that the providers can use, below are some diagrams of improving solar and improving solar receivers or using different methods and materials.
ALON is the hardest polycrystalline transparent ceramic available commercially.
ALON is optically transparent (≥ 80%) in the near-ultraviolet, visible and mid-wave-infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. It is four times as hard as fused silica glass, 85% as hard as sapphire, and nearly 115% as hard as magnesium aluminate spinel. Since it has a cubic spinel structure, it can be fabricated to transparent windows, plates, domes, rods, tubes and other forms using conventional ceramic powder processing techniques.
Transparent Aluminium can be used as a base for solar systems, this can be made as glass, or in a thin laminate that can stick onto windows, there will be a fine grid in the optical view of the electrical components and the silver and copper mesh, the laminate or glass will be transparent but may have a slight tint, this can be uses to harvest the solar rays and if we can use the graphene sheets in another coating on the outer side we can harvest the pressure from wind and rain fall, if we then as a magnification or convex shape on the outer side like an optical lens we can magnify the solar rays, this could be used in skyscrapers where they get hit hard by the wind and rain, 95% of the surface area on average of a sky scraper is glass, there is only a small space on the roof for solar, we could use the sides of the building, the laminate can be used on any surface not just glass, but this application of using transparent aluminium would make it a fully transparent application.
This next diagram could be a new way to harvest solar energy, it uses the breeder blanket from the inside of a nuclear fusion reactor, it collects the heat flux from the plasma, so I have redesigned it a little and also added a Fresnel lens with the ambition to use the breeder blanket as a solar photovoltaic panel as it can withstand really high temperatures, the Fresnel lens can reach over 2000 degrees, we can collect the heat flux using a breeder blanket.
This invention or replacement of an invention modified and added with Fresnel and used in a different way may be the answer, I may have something wrong here but I think there is defiantly something here.
Concentrated solar energy is the best form of solar energy we can harvest, it is concentrated by using Fresnel lenses, the act like magnifying glasses to amplify the solar rays, this produces a lot more energy per square meter than any other solar set up available, this is ideal for small spaces or places like China that do not have the space, to be honest regardless of space if this is the most effective way then this should be at the forefront of the solar movement, this is not one of my designs, I did think of it years ago and it is nice to see someone else has built it, there is not to many people doing this kind of solar and it needs more attention, this is what we should be using, concentrated solar using a cavity receiver is the most effective way to harness solar energy, maybe on par with Fresnel molten salt towers but as it is so small this would probably win.
