FREMONT, CA: A deeper level of climate understanding has led to significant shifts in people's perceptions and thinking on how one can empower the lives; transition to a modern generation of energy requirements has become necessary.

It is also pushing technological energy progress, contributing to the emergence of a range of innovative innovations designed to help the global energy transition in new ways. Through development in recycling and airplane fuel, there are a few new energy concepts in the 2021 pipeline from domestic solar and wind generation.

Miniature Turbines for the Garden

Think of a wind farm, and one might think of enormous installations situated in rural, wind-swept areas, but that is changing fast. One firm is developing residential wind turbines that use the same generator-mainly big wind farms, albeit on a much smaller scale. The three outer and three inner vertical blades rotate as the wind flows through them, supplying the rotating mechanical energy that passes through the generator and is transformed to electricity.

Solar Extension to Cover More Surfaces

To date, roof panels have become the most common means of capturing and transforming rays domestically, but another firm is taking this a step forward by offering solar roof tiles. They operate in the same way as roof tiles, using photovoltaic cells made of silicon to turn sunlight into electricity. However, by covering more surface areas, whole roofs can produce solar energy rather than single tiles.

Plastic Re-Use

Global recycling rates currently stand at about 18 percent, suggesting that additional action needs to be taken to ensure that single-use items are avoided. Plastic is, and with good cause, a big focus in the battle on disposal. By 2015, the planet had produced more than seven billion tons of plastic. One particular firm is addressing this by using a method called pyrolysis to transform plastic into electricity. By boiling waste at a very high temperature without oxygen, the plastic is broken down without burning. This method produces bio-oils that can be used to manufacture biofuels. The implications of this revolutionary approach to waste are twofold: not only can plastic be recycled, which minimizes the long-lasting effects of single-use plastics on the earth, but the generation of biofuel is a source of energy for anything from transport to power generation.
