Things too big for me to implement alone or at present.


Stirling Engines

Coupled Stirling engines

  • solar-powered mechanical cooler
    • one Stirling engine is driven by solar heat
    • mechanical coupling
    • second Stirling engine extracts heat from insulated space

Geothermal Energy

Mine-shafts as heating/cooling infrastructure

  • use for mines that would have been abandoned
  • direct heating/cooling of cities via ground-source plumbing.
  • side-effects:
    • mine site kept environmentally sound
    • site kept safe for humans

Mine-shaft as geothermal energy source

  • Stirling engine generator
  • side-effects:
    • power transmission flexibility
