In the state of Ceara, which is in the northeastern part of Brasil is one of the first wave energy converters for Latin America. This 2012 project features a land secured system that reaches into the ocean and harvests the motion of the waves, converting the kinetic energy into clean electricity. The project was done by the submarine laboratory at Coppe , developed by Tracetebel Energy and supported by the government of Ceara. The floating disc modules consist of a 10 meter diameter floating buoy

A team at IBM recently developed what they call a High Concentration PhotoVoltaic Thermal (HCPVT) or, in simple words, a solar collector. It is a system that is capable of concentrating the power of 2,000 suns, they are even claiming to be able to concentrate energy safely up to 5,000X, that’s huge. The process of trapping the sunlight produces water that can be used to produce filtered drinkable water, or used for other things like air conditioning, etc. Scientists envision that the HCPVT system could
