This is a typical Stirling Engine/Generator set, but this one is powered by the Sun.
Most power harnessing is needed far away from the equator where “The Sun Don’t Shine” so to speak, so the power source would be a fire or another source of heat.
When Robert Stirling invented the principle of a Stirling engine, he put it into practice quickly. The principle is quite simple: there is a potential difference (separation) between hot and cold that can be used to power a rotating shaft.
This principle is also found in electricity: there is a potential difference (separation) between positive and negative poles that can be used to power a rotating shaft. The reverse of that principle is that a rotating shaft can be used to create a potential difference between positive and negative poles.
The business of building Stirling Engine Generator sets for sale throughout the World can be achieved quite easily and at low cost. The materials to needed to build the engine are just a few hundred dollars for heater box, pipes, shafts, and flywheel. A 5KW generator itself would cost around $500. Batteries would cost around $1 per Ah when you get to the 12V 150Ah size.
Fuel for heating the hot end is easily obtained using peat from the numerous bogs in Ireland. That is one reason why we are choosing Ireland and Irish people as the start point for manufacturing.
Investment in financing low cost electrical generator designs, and bringing them to market as quickly as possible will be a major function of Heddinout Communications Ltd. Marketing and promotion is number 1 on the list, since nothing happens without a sale, quickly followed by investment in design and manufacture. The units can then be advertised and sold here on this site, or for purchase elsewhere else by redeeming your MetaFlorin Gift Coins.
Since I run a fire protection contracting business in Ontario Canada, as well as running ARG MetaPhoria, and spending time with my beautiful wife of 25 years and still having 1 daughter living at home, my time is completely consumed by my existing commitments.
