1. Aggregated PV will be the biggest generator:
2. There is a scramble by investors to be the Aggregator of Choice.
3. The system architecture to support this new Distributed Energy System (DES) is already underway:
I have the original string that was issued by the marine park rangers at Lifou Island, still attached to my wrist from the day that I went snorkelling there in late May 2018. Why, you may ask?… well, because it is a constant reminder of a wonderful day with my wonderful wife but also a reminder of a very
special part of God’s amazing creation.
So what reasons would you proffer for not buying and electric vehicle (EV)?
Too expensive, not enough range or not enough charging infrastructure?
In the article below you should be able to get one for AUD 60,000 with 400km range and which you can charge from home in 2019…
It took me a bill shock event to get me to really think about what to do. Of course managing your energy is good for the pocket but it is also good for the environment.
Conceived as a scarecrow, albeit in owl and not human form, Hootie changes randomly between pre-recorded, real owl calls, flapping its wing tips and turning its head which holds a 10mW laser beam. Birds hate the laser beam. Watch the video, which shows birds (actually flying rats) offered yummy food and yet even the most brazen of them scatters when the head turns and they are exposed to his imposing laser beam. Its main use is to keep other birds from defecating on garden furniture (what my wife originally wanted it for) around homes or more significantly, preventing them from pooping on PV solar panels thereby shading them from the sun and reducing the energy that they produce. I keep seeing other applications like keeping seagulls off of boats.
This product uses an Arduino Uno (IoT device) to control the movement of the time-of-flight ToF sensor. It also gives voice instructions to the user to toggle various buttons, instructs them to look directly at the ToF sensor and then press a push-button when the scanning is completed.
The completed 3D-printed bust using, this Ianboake.com IoT product, is shown. It shows the bust printed in black PLA, albeit with the support material not removed, as yet, under my chin and it was not printed on a very good 3D printer.
This product is at the Crowdfunding stage (i.e a MarkIII product) so please donate with the Tag: 3D_Immortal, as your donation reference. Also if you want me to 3D-scan a similar bust of you, these will cost $50 each, so please email me. I do however suggest that you get it professionally 3D-printed, as the results will be substantially better than the example that you see here.
