IBM Solar Collector Magnifies Sun By 2000X – These Could Provide Power To The Entire Planet | The Unbounded Spirit

IBM Solar Collector Magnifies Sun By 2000X – These Could Provide Power To The Entire Planet | The Unbounded Spirit | Technology News | Scoop.it

A team at IBM recently developed what they call a High Concentration Photo Voltaic Thermal (HCPVT) system that is capable of concentrating the power of 2,000 suns, they are even claiming to be able to concentrate energy safely up to 5,000X, that’s huge.


The process of  trapping the sunlight produces water that can be used to produce filtered drinkable water, or used for other things like air conditioning etc. Scientists envision that the HCPVT system could provide sustainable energy and fresh water to communities all around the world.

 

“Each 1cmX1cm chip can convert 200-250 watts, on average, over a typical eight-hour day in a sunny region.


In the HCPVT system, instead of heating a building, the 90 degree Celsius water will pass through a porous membrane distillation system where it is then vaporized and desalinated.


Such a system could provide 30-40 liters of drinkable water per square meter of receiver area per day, while still generating electricity with a more than 25 percent yield or two kilowatts hours per day.

Release Notes September 30, 2014 - Google Apps Script — Google Developers

September 30, 2014 Highlights include: * Added the LinearOptimizationService, which allows scripts to model and solve linear and mixed-integer linear programs. * Add-ons for Google Sheets and Docs can now use most installable triggers, although they still cannot use time-driven triggers (sometimes called clock triggers). * Added an installable open trigger for Google Docs. Like the installable open triggers for Sheets and Forms, this trigger is similar to the simple onOpen() trigger, but allows the triggered function to call services that require authorization, if the user has authorized the script ahead of time. * Added several new ScriptApp methods, classes, and enums to support installable triggers in add-ons: * The UiService widget DocsListDialog now requires that you call DocsListDialog.setOAuthToken(oAuthToken) before calling DocsListDialog.showDocsPicker().
