Wind turbines, solar panels, home battery storage - if it's discussion about renewable energy you're after, you'll find it here.
I have been researching Atmospheric Water Generators over the last few months after I had the idea of creating energy from the hydro energy of an AWG. The concept is simple, you have a farm of AWG's connected to batteries. These batteries power the condenser's and the energy going into the batteries comes from the hydro turbines beneath the water runoff. The excess energy not powering the AWG's goes into a separate battery that sends power to AGL customers. If anyone at AGL is interested in discussing this topic my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sounds like a perpetual motion machine! Unfortunately we have to comply with the laws of thermodynamics here at AGL, but I'm definitely glad you're thinking big, @atticusjxn! 😁
Thank you @NeilC and @David_AGL for your constructive feedback. I agree that if this machine where to exist the maintenance would be constant, this would likely be due to the regular oxidization of parts due to the constant flow of water and air in a condensed space. However, I am still adamant on getting this idea off it's feet one day, even if it's just an experiment that fails, I am still curious to see the outcome and tweak it. I am still only a year 9 student with plenty of years of education left.
@atticusjxn It's awesome that you are thinking about these types of problems! Ambitious thinking is definitely required to drive the future of energy. I'm going to move this thread out of the "ideas" section and over to the Renewables & Energy Technology board.
