  •  I'm actually working on that! (10+ / 0-)

    I've been designing a ultra low cost solar steam power plant for a non-profit research organization I started last year. We're initially designing it for producing solar electricity, but we're going to modify it to distill seawater on a massive scale.

    It's time for cheaper solar power! Zenman Energy

      •  I tried a short fund raiser diary (5+ / 0-)

        a month ago, but it was in the middle of some random Washington scandal.

        I'll write some up soon. I started a diary on an evacuated tube insulation system which we developed. It's just a prototype, but it looks extremely promising. I have another entire diary on a single piece of metal! hahaha BORING! Granted it's a keystone of the entire system, so it's worth it.

        The system we're building is ridiculously cheap and easily mass produceable. But we have a million problems left to solve and of course like any non-profit one of them is funding. It'll all be open source, so we can explain in the utmost detail how it works. I have no idea if DK readers will enjoy them, but I don't care! Solar science/engineering is fascinating to me so if I'm the only one that reads them, so be it.

        •  I would think there would be a lot of interest on (0+ / 0-)

          here. Maybe coordinate with Fishgrease or babeinfla when you get ready to publish.

          Yes, there is so much on here sometimes the baby goes with the bathwater.

          I'll follow you so I can see when you publish.

          thx!
