Generating Electricity at Night

Generating Electricity at Night
Aug-19-20
A team of researchers from Stanford University have developed an 'anti-solar power cell', using a new technology exploiting the radiative sky cooling effect. This technology allows us to generate electricity at night.

The technology works in the opposite way of a normal solar panel. Even if there is no incoming heat at night, there is outgoing heat, and by pointing the warm solar panel at the night sky, the outgoing heat is radiated as infrared light.

The researchers goal is to find a cheap, sustainable way of providing lighting to cities, developing regions, rural regions, and more. The results are encouraging, as the team claims that their design generates 120 times more energy than what already exists. Furthermore, this could be used to make power from waste heat produces by vehicles.

This invention claim to produce 2.2watt/h per sq meter and same time claim that they are 120 times better than previous best - 12000% better - something is wrong in this info! Ubiquitous energy produce solar windows that produce 50watt/h 24/7, so this new invention might be useless or maybe it produce 2.2kwh per sq meter - anyone know the truth?

Hello, I'm Mac and I have a patented invention that is a Power Amplifier. With this it can increase the power you are producing now with solar to much bigger numbers. The model I have build is the footprint of what larger models can be. The first one is small, it takes 4 lbs of torque to operate and puts out 18 to 90+ lbs of usable torque. I actually lifted 86 lbs and the 4 lbs of input never goes up. I have letters from Dr. Hazeltine at Brown, I brought my crude first model to Stony Brook ( they actually gave me the proper name of this ) and have Testing lab confirmation and engineered projections on future power outputs. Thank you for reading this, I have worked on this for 30+ years. It doesn not intend to or imply that it breaks any laws of physics or thermodynamics, even the 2nd one. I have found a way to use magnetism in a useful way, it's a mechanical process, plain and simple and it works. Thank you, Mac McCarthy Bymac@verizon.net 727-586-1285 Hm.
