Future Energy eNews











I just returned from an interesting energy and environment conference in South Korea  called the 24th International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences. We have posted a few of the pictures from the conference on Facebook. It proved to me that a moral imperative to helping the earth can be a motivating factor for scientists. Regarding the expected concern for global warming and sea level rise, some of the best solutions for carbon sequestration that I found was from where Dr. Brian Von Herzen leads the development of kelp forests for restoring global mariculture and previously nurturing of plankton geoengineering (featured on the Discovery channel) since they both have the potential for sucking billions of tons of carbon from the atmosphere.


Our first story is probably a view of the future, since Stanford University’s development of wireless transmission charging for moving electric vehicles is so exciting to everyone who has “range fear.” IRI expects to see highways offering inductive coupling mobile wireless charging as well in the near future, such as described in Chapter 16 of our book Nikola Tesla’s Electricity Unplugged “High Q Resonant Wireless Power Transfer” by Roy Davis from Qualcomm.


Story #2 features the advanced energy harvesting for wearables developed by NASA with both thermoelectric generators and ambient solar energy usage for a higher power level.


Story #3 is a surprising use of gravity for generating energy with the help of old mine shafts by Gravitricity. Surprisingly, it can generate 20 MW of power with heavy weights in shafts from 500 to 5000 feet, lasting up to 50 years without degradation. Visit for more information.


Story #4 gives us hope for India becoming a leader in zero emissions energy generation by doubling its capacity to generate wind power in Tamil Nadu, along with 13 GW of solar energy, overcoming its addiction to coal.


Our fifth story offers an unusual method for storage of information without electronics. It uses conductive thread that can store magnetic information that is read by an inexpensive instrument.


Onward and upward!

1) Wireless Charging of Moving Electric Vehicles



Stanford University, February 2018

If electric cars could recharge while driving down a highway, it would virtually eliminate concerns about their range and lower their cost, perhaps making electricity the standard fuel for vehicles. Researchers have wirelessly transmitted electricity to a nearby moving object, which could advance wireless charging of vehicles and personal devices such as cellphones, and untether robotics in manufacturing.



2) Wearable Solar Thermoelectric Generator


This energy-harvesting system generates electricity by attachment to clothes, windows, or outer building walls. February 2018

There has been a great increase in the study of wearable thermoelectric generators using the temperature difference between body heat and the surrounding environment. One of the main drawbacks of wearable TEG techniques driven by body heat is that such temperature difference is only 1 to about 4 °C, and this has hindered further commercialization.


3) Generator of Energy using Gravity


Turning Old mine shafts into energy generators


By Kristin Longren, February 2018

The coal mining industry is dying (despite what some people would have you think), and it isn’t coming back. But a new startup is breathing life into mining communities with an ingenious design that uses old mine shafts to generate energy.


Gravitricity has devised a giant weight system that drops down into disused mine shafts to create power on demand using gravity.


4) India Becoming a Global Leader in Clean Energy


India's southern state of Tamil Nadu is poised to become a global leader in wind power, according to a new report.


BBC News, February 9th, 2018

But first the state must overcome its addiction to coal, writes Nityanand Jayaraman. The report - by the US-based Institute of Energy Economics and Financial Analysis - predicts that by 2027, more than half of Tamil Nadu's power will be generated by "zero emissions" technologies - notably solar and wind.



5) Smart Fabric Stores Data without Electronics


The fabric can store data without requiring onboard electronics or sensors.


NASA February 2018

Conductive thread — embroidery thread that can carry an electrical current — often is combined with other types of electronics to create fabric that lights up or communicates. This thread also has magnetic properties that can be manipulated to store either digital data, or visual information like letters or numbers. This data can be read by a magnetometer, an inexpensive instrument that measures the direction and strength of magnetic fields, and is embedded in most smartphones.
