Solar Generation Feedforward to Peaking Generating Plants

This new app addresses the problem associated with the "as-available" nature of solar energy. Since solar generation appears to utilities as "lack of load" rather than generation, utilities struggle to coordinate their generating resources with the variable output of distributed solar (PV). This can have a destabilizing effect on the grid in terms of voltage and frequency. This new app uses three sources of data; two ...more »

Savings Share

This video describes my idea for a killer new energy-driven application. My idea is to use Green Thumb energy data combined with home improvement project logs from people across the country, allowing an estimation of the energy savings provided by the particular project. This can help people estimate the potential impact of a project they are considering in terms of energy savings, and calculate the potential return ...more »

Climate Resilient Grid for Renewable Energy Trading Platform

Problem: A 95% confidence level for man-made anthropogenic emissions as the cause of climate change (global warming) necessitates a transition from a fossil-fuel based paradigm of energy, to a paradigm of conditionally infinite resources of energy, such as solar, wind, and geothermal, among others. This necessity is justified by (1) the ‘cost’ of severe-weather related damage on infrastructure and; (2) the potential ...more »

Creating a Totally Sustainable Renewable Energy Source

For three years I have been experimenting on creating a totally, sustainable, renewable energy source that reduces the extraction on initial energy, is more cost efficient than traditional energy sources, and uses completely renewable energy sources. I had two trials. For my first trial I was testing the average voltage produced by a wind turbine (scale model) by testing the curvature, type and pitch of the blades and ...more »

Grid or Equipment Failure Notification

Using meter data alone (green button) one could determine whether a parties' electric power were disconnected and notify the party of the outage so that appropriate action could be taken, especially in the even there are potentially negative consequences. Using thermostat readings from a communicating thermostat, in concert with local weather data, can easily determine when an air conditioning system has failed for any ...more »
