Comments Off on James Cameron designs five huge flower-shaped solar arrays to power his wife’s sustainable school

Blockbuster director James Cameron has added a new entry to the code of the language of flowers . By gifting his wife, Suzy Amis Cameron, a “bunch” of five solar arrays shaped like giant flowers for her MUSE School in southern California, he not only demonstrated his love for her, but his love for the planet as well. Cameron designed the solar arrays himself over the course of three years. Just like sunflowers, they pivot to face the moving sun to maximize the solar energy they can absorb each day. At an unveiling ceremony for the Sun Flowers, as they are named, Cameron explained, “I thought we should try to do something that inspires because this is about kids. Once you capture their imagination and empower them, they can do anything.” READ MORE > Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: “solar energy” , flower-shaped solar array , green schools , james cameron , James Cameron gives flower-shaped solar arrays to school , Muse School , solar design , solar panels

Comments Off on Solar-Powered, Concrete Hull Boat

Carter Quillen is an engineer who bought an old, concrete hulled sail boat named the ‘ Archimedes’  and, instead of refitting it with new masts, decided instead to turn it into the largest solar powered concrete hulled boat in the world. The ‘ Archimedes’  is a 50 feet (15.24 meters) long, with a displacement of 20 tons and is able to travel at up to 5 miles per hour (8 km/hour) powered solely by a 5kW solar array. Quillen is traveling along the Intercoastal Waterway as an advocate for microgrid energy production as well as using his boat as a demonstration platform for sustainable technology. In addition to solar electric propulsion, the ‘ Archimedes’  also uses solar power for its refrigeration, A/C, and water heating, and the solar panels are also being developed to be deployed in a funnel configuration for rainwater catchment. Quillen is also campaigning for greater use of solar power in Florida, noting that “the ‘Sunshine State,’ ranks 20th nationwide in solar energy use per capita.” Link: Ship of Imagination video link
