Taiwan to install LED trafic lights

"Taiwan's Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) has budgeted NT$229 million (US$7.0 million) for the next three years starting in 2008 to change the traffic lights in all counties and cities in Taiwan to LED-based ones, according to the Chinese-language Central News Agency (CNA).

Taiwan's Bureau of Energy, under the MOEA, said Taiwan now has 350,000 traffic lights using LEDs as a lighting source, with the remaining 420,000 traffic lights to also use LED lighting in the next three years for a total savings in power consumption estimated to be 85%, CNA said.

After switching traffic signals to LEDs, MOEA will launch a NT$130 million plan to change street lamps at specific roads or areas to LED-based ones, CNA indicated."

They seem to save 89% of their energy and last for ~22 years.

Air Power Anywhere

This is a great idea, but it will still not detract from this month and summer's research into free energy.

LED Stoplights

Raleigh NC is shifting their public lighting to LED's.

This may be somewhat efficient, as LEDs have a lumens per energy ratio of about 35. Incandescents have about 30. However, special bulbs have up to 85. There are probably more efficient light sources than LED's.

However, unidirectional light requirements, such as stoplights, do not require field light sources, so LEDs are probably among the more efficient systems for those applications, except for the electronically controlled light with a mirror system.

Energy and Waste

A new way to turn trash into energy could reduce our pollution concerns and make power safer. Toxic waste can be burned and destroyed using superheated material to fuel a ~50,000* [F] plasma fire and add electrical power to our lines.

Waste placed in this fire turns from normal matter into plasma and is completely consumed leaving no known byproducts. Using these installations can reduce the level of waste emitted into our oceans, skies, and soil. Hurray!!

A Brand New Energy is the front page of a company that creates energy by sustaining a plasma combustion reaction fuelled by contaminants and other trash. This method could be used to enhance the output of all of our coal burning power plants and reduce the level of refinement necessary to produce fuel. It could also eliminate the usefulness of nuclear power plants, which is a key global goal for the 21st century. Since the plasma reactions produce very little pollution and can be fuelled by pollutants, this is a good choice for powering the electrical activities of urban and industrial centers.

For example, there are two trash mounds in the Pacific Ocean, each the size of the state of Texas, leaching dioxins into the water and poisoning marine life. Hauling these loads to Los Angeles and burning them in such a power plant as startech's could power the entire city for years.

This idea, among thousands of others, are part of a necessary comprehensive neoglobal energy plan. The state department of the US has not produced a plan to achieve environmental energy sustainability, and the IAEA and other organizations are yet to combine plans. Now is the time to assemble this plan on a community and multi-community level.


Conservation techniques can reduce our energy requirements. This can be felt locally with properly insulated and designed houses and efficient vehicles and appliances. We can conserve commercially with effective communications technologies and delivery mechanisms. New technologies can help us use less energy when build' everything from cars to computers, and give us the time and community affordability to hand make and machine many quality goods. Sensible techniques at will help us cleanly and non-intensively grow enough crops on less land and for longer growing cycles.

We will use these technologies to build enough spare energy to accomplish these tasks.

-Moray device, resonating with cosmic waves
-Tesla device, resonating with earth's em field [solar ion power]
-plasma trash combustion and disposal
-water splitting H2O -> H2 via e- Hz
-biological enzyme fuel cells
-photosynthetic H2 from GM bacteria
-algae fuel processing
-'overunity' water ram/pump
-geothermal boreholes
-advanced particle physics photon collection
-urban architectural and midatmospheric windmills [infrastructure via 2030's]
-arboreally un-assisted waterwheels
-hemp and greasy weed oils

The first design will be for a sufficient town with a population of ~150.

Light Emitting Transistors and Photovoltaics

We just in the past weeks invented light emitting transistors [LET] which turn electric signal into photos by an electrochemical process. This process can be reversed to turn photons into electricity more directly than a photovoltaic cell. We should reverse engineer this process to advance photovoltaic technologies.

"“With LETs, we could develop an optical interconnection beyond the present copper interconnection,” Shin-Ichi Saito, co-author of the study in Applied Physics Letters, told"

Natural Monopolies and Alternative Energy

Why does the government create monopoly power via its patent system, when elsewhere it spends millions trying to prevent the emergence of or regulate monopoly power?

The state wants to foster scientific growth. Although, this may be at odds when a scientific advancement would threaten the basis of a natural monopoly. For example, shows that GM, oil producers, and other companies have worked to suppress carburater technologies and alternative fuel technologies. Rudolpf Diesel, inventor of the diesel engine, when he tried to switch back to vegetable oil from crude was killed, likely by industry competetors. His fuel plan would have substantially reduced the natural monopoly of refineries. Today, alternative fuel technologies could/would demolish the accrued arbitrary wealth stored up in those refineries, oil fields, and also in certain elements of the $billions-level auto industry, as well as shift massive oil-centered political power, and the energy production industry and all it subsidiaries, nuclear and coal plants, natural gas plants, commodities shifting systems and infrastructure, and potentially their power lines and permits and contracts, certain elements of jet propulsion and tactical military complex production and threat assessment, as well as certain chemical plants, steel mills, and other cottage industries that would be quickly replaced by a new technology that made superior procedures affordable. As well as the added competition that could potentially be faced in most any monopolistic business by drastically reduced startup costs due to this shift in power production and availability of superior systems. Modernizing itself would probably cost 10-20% of any major firm’s annual revenue, while obsoleting many industries and fundamentally altering many others. However, the cost of this upgrade would be dramatically reduced by the very same measures that caused the need to upgrade. Furthermore, the 10-year return on value of investment and quality of life would be phenomenal. However, an investment in this era and a reutrn in that era would be very difficult to compare due to the corresponding shift in the value and function of money in such a society. This might/would cause massive deflation, which could seem like devaluation to an analyst or investor, but in actuality it is hypervaluation because of the new perfusion of goods and the cheapness of producing and distributing those goods in the new market.

Alternative fuels still face an uphill battle, but they are being aided by Mother Nature, the principle of shortage, and growing human population. All these are God’s ways. Patents do exist for alternative technologies. About 20 patents exist for 100%< efficient special electrolysis water splitting technologies and certain companies make use of them. A patent for a motionless electromagnetic generator was produced in spring of 2002, but it has yet to be meaningfully applied for these reasons.
