Solar Updraft Tower ( TeK-THink) – The solar updraft tower uses solar thermal energy in a very different way than the heat engine type solar towers that are gaining in popularity. The updraft tower captures hot air as it rise through convection through the tower tube. The resulting airflow is used to turn a generating […]

Wave Energy Converter ( TeK-THink ) This video illustrates an interesting wave energy conversion technology called the Ocillo drive. Probably Oscilla is short for the Oscillation drive. The device skims the top of the wave capturing the up and down motion and converting the energy into pressure in a liquid pumping system. The pressure achieved […]
