A smarter energy pump
One machine to provide all your heating, cooling and warm water and one machine that makes the owner a cleaner person when he or she must use energy , One machine to replace 3.6 billion machines that produce waste working in a cool or a heat mode . One machine that stops people being polluters unknowingly, and one machine that was available in 2003 to lower energy use and stop emissions to our environment. A machine in circular does not waste. What you pay for it can offset your cost to stay warm and cool.
A House Brick as a Battery?
The humble house brick has been
turned into a battery that can store electricity, raising the possibility that
buildings could one day become literal powerhouses.
The new technology exploits the
porous nature of fired red bricks by filling the pores with tiny nanofibres of
a conducting plastic that can store charge. The first bricks store enough
electricity to power small lights. But if their capacity can be increased, they
may become a low-cost alternative to the lithium-ion batteries currently used.
Strictly speaking, the power
bricks are supercapacitors rather than batteries. Supercapacitors store
electricity as a static charge in solids.
