Energy

Energy is composed of 4 transition components:

  • creation,
  • transferring,
  • storage,
  • power

Power is created by movement of a source (wind, water, weight, engine or steam) which turns an alternator or an chemical reaction creating a potential difference ( solar panels).  Transferring of energy can be done wired or wireless in close proximity. Energy can be stored in many forms (heat, flywheels, batteries, supercapacitors, and weight lifted to be dropped releasing energy at later date).

This is the foremost area where innovation at the 2D nanomaterial layer can be applied. The physical machinery (turbines, alternators, solar fields, fueled generators, nuclear power plants, and hydro dams) utilized to produce energy are large and heavy to support the pressures being applied. The power grids have many components for the balancing and management of energy as it moves to loads.  Some of these domains have been using the same architecture design and components for over 100 years. The adage “if it is not broken don’t fix it” is alive and well.

SpecNano has discovered 2D nanomaterials which can be applied each of the transition component areas to reduce the cost and improve the efficiency in each. The innovation discovers will also allow for a more cost-effective management allowing the isolation of problem areas while allowing others to still receive power as well as the ability to do Continuous Diagnostic Monitoring and remote control.
