A New form of Renewable energy, Saving the Earth!
Explain your idea in details:
My innovation is to give affordable energy and electricity to everyone but also doing it in a manner that is good for the environment. I am trying to produce a pannel like design that catches triboelectricity (Friction) and converts it into usable energy and electricity. I have approached this idea, by testing and learning. My plans for the future are testing on computers, roads, shoes, and even the Friction on Rockets. However, my biggest goal is to give everyone access to electricity and the Internet, to connect with family and friends, To do online school, and for things such as heating and cooling. This idea can make that goal possible.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
My target is to give electricity and energy to people who do not have access to it, Producing a 'nanogenerator' type panel is very cheap to produce and has little to no environmental impact. This makes it good for the environment and the future, You can harvest this friction in places of high friction, such as roads, this means you can put this 'triboelectric nanogenerator' in somewhere like China or Vietnam, with lots of Traffic, meaning lots of friction, and were friction is, so is energy and electricity! How I will determine my success is the Learning mile-stones, My first working design, My first sale, My first donation. I will determain my success by sales and giving low socio-economic areas the Electricity, Energy, and the Internet in this world were we need it more than ever.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
My business model is: - Help others - Help yourself and others learn - Do the best you can - Get doing! These goals are the fundamental model of how I live, work and collaborate, I not only want to help myself learn but give learning opportunities to others, With this Triboelectric technology that I will make, I can give people the most abondend learning source the Internet.
