Observation

We are yet to discover the power water can generate. People are still trying to make the most of the energy water can encapsulate. Another big problem is the fast distribution of power. As consumption increases we cannot rely anymore on cables and wires.

Conclusion

The oceans and seas are a vast energy resource and we must take maximum advantage and try to transform it into electricity. Another big challenge for us is making energy distribution low cost, fast and reliable.

Solution

Energy can be generated by the up and down movement of sinking and resurfacing. A floating rig can store energy from multiple generators and send it to an orbital power bank. The power bank can then distribute it to consumers all over the world. All the distribution can be done with the power of the laser beam.

From the innovating way of generating energy to the way we can store and distribute it, my idea is unique and plausible. The visual explains the process of energy transmission through laser from the generators to local receivers. From there the receivers distribute energy through radio waves.

How it works: Step 1

The rig is anchored to the sea floor with hollow cables. The generators are torpedo shaped to sink fast. They travel on the cables. As they reach the bottom air is inserted to inflate the generator's air cushion. As the generator rises It's propeller rotates creating energy.

How it works: Step 2

Each floating laser rig has a power storage unit. When it is fully loaded the rig opens unveiling the laser. The laser's head adjust it's position and sends the energy to the orbital power bank.

How it works: Step 3

The orbital power bank collects energy from the floating rigs or from each other creating a power distribution network. The orbital network provides energy to local receivers anywhere in the world. Each building has a receiver that provide wireless electricity to the consumers via radio waves.

Describe how your solution works step by step:

1. Power rigs will be anchored to the sea floor with hollow cables. Each rig will have multiple generators. The generators are torpedo shaped to sink fast. They travel on the cables. As they reach the bottom air is inserted to inflate the generator's air cushion. As the generator rises It's propeller rotates creating energy.
2. Each floating laser rig has a power storage unit. When it is fully loaded the rig opens unveiling the laser. The laser's head adjust it's position and sends the energy to the orbital power bank.
3. The orbital power bank collects energy from the floating rigs or from each other creating a power distribution network. The orbital network provides energy to local receivers anywhere in the world.
4. Each building has a receiver that provide wireless electricity to the consumers via radio waves. Each home will have a wireless power router connected to the building's receiver. All the devices and appliances inside the homes will receive power from the router.
