Comments Off on Humdinger Wind Energy develops portable wind energy harvester

Eco Factor: Portable wind energy generator to power wireless sensors. According to statistics, about 2 percent of global electricity comes from wind-powered generators, and their capacity has doubled in the past three years. However, scaling down wind turbines for use as an electronic device charger hasn’t proved fruitful, as conventional wind turbines require rotating fins and gears, which add bulk, making the device inefficient when scaled down.

Eco Factor: Process developed to harvest raw electricity from algae. Harvesting biofuel from algae isn’t a new concept and that biofuel can also be used to generate electricity via a variety of systems. However, a team of researchers from Korea and California have for the first time developed a process that allows them to harvest raw electricity directly from algae.
