Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency governs how much electricity is created for the energy harvesting process. In a poorly designed system kinetic energy is often absorbed and converted by friction into thermal energy. This thermal transfer of energy reduces the electrical products net gain.

Energy efficiency is made up from a variety of factors explored in this section.

FURTHER COMPARISONS OR ISSUES

A key weakness of Active Kinetic 1 technology is the inability to produce energy with out a force. Force could be produced by renewable or fuel based energies.

Below we explore the weaknesses of competing technology.

Solar

  • Capacity Factor: Average 17.5%
  • Efficiency Issue: Only 30% maximum coefficient 50% daytime.
  • Failure Risks: Snow, Volcanic ash, Hail stones smash panels.
  • Other Risks: Land intensive application, expensive to recycle. Avian collisions.

Wind

  • Capacity Factor: Average 36%
  • Efficiency Issue: Cannot operate in low or high wind. Only 59% maximum coefficient.
  • Failure Risks: Lightning strike, Frozen mechanism.
  • Other Risks: Dangerous in Residential area due to collapse, expensive to recycle. Avian collisions.

Fossil Fuels

  • Capacity Factor: Average 54.4%
