Welcome to my web site and daily/weekly monthly blog and news updates
Thermaltricity International and PVT Lab in Australia, have been working towards delivering a cost effective answer for photovoltaic thermal (PVT) systems. PVT Lab have recently announced their latest design, the CoolsheetTM heat exchange panel. The Coolsheet system has an International PCT Patent filing and a number of Design Registrations, the system has been designed from the ground up to be light weight, installer friendly and cost effective. A successful pilot system has been operational for 18 months and a large scale commercial system will be installed by the end of 2019.
This is one of two new videos of the assembly and working opparation of the Thermocube, exclusive to being made by Sirac in Sth Africa.
The full background and history to the concept of these made to size hot water tanks, will be found in my thermal storage pages
As from 2019, I am open to hearing from any well established solar PV or solar Thermal businesses interested in adapting PV panels to PVT panels and hybrid systems.
We are drawing up a basic licence distribution agreement which is open to modification and bespoke for that business and the country the business is registered in. The licence will be renewed every year at a fee to be agreed, with one country per country except for the USA.
My Australian based business partner in the joint development of the Thermaltricity Solar Thermal Cooling exchanger is awaiting the final patent approve, expected by April 2019.
Don’t be the company who is disappointed not to have been the first business in your country to be approved as an exclusive distributor
Update on the changes I have made to my portable solarbrella/battery storage kit.
I have dumped the K2 Maxtar, after a year of test, due to the failure of the pin adapters which connected the power bank to my laptop.
The manufactures had no interest to replace them, as was told the 1 yr warranty is now out of date.
The latest Power-bank I have outsourced and had changes made to work with my 60 watt solarbrella, now comes with a 200 watt Inverter, which you plug in from your mains power adapter supplied with your lap top
Watch the video and come back to me, if you need further details.
I will be making changes to the pages which promoted the K2 with all the technical details of the new one

After 2 years as being a runner up in the Dorset Business awards, the Green Ward has now been deleted by the news paper group, as no longer of any interest to local business
I am looking to establising a social solar enterprise with Kwabena Danso in the near future,
which will provide high quality solar related products to the many and not the
few at prices, where the profit is re-invested into better education of the
greater use of solar energy off grid across Ghana.
In 2017, after being contacted by a trust in Canada for help in reducing a communities energy and water bills, I arranged a shipment of a range of LED lights to replace outdated ones for a project in Sth Africa (Botshabelo Community)
On the 13th June, i met up with Kwabena Danso in London, who was looking to find a UK importer/distributor for his NOW famous Booomers Bamboo Bikes.
His company received foreign aid from the UK government, which has resulted in an increase to 40 workers in his Village, where the bike frames are produced. He now exports $250,000 in value to countries like Germany, Canada, the Netherlands, USA and Australia.
His presentation at a community hall in Bermondsey, London attracted around 40 people including the Ghana minister for trade and investmen who i gave my business card too as well as one of my LED 10 watt own brand bulbs, so he could consider if this idea could be sold to the government of Ghana.
I was given 10 minutes to present a range of my Portable solar lighting products, including my plans to switch Ghana as I am planning in Senegal to 100% LED light bulbs by 2020.
I am also seeking to help kwabena localy with a local bike assembly business for his Bamboo bikes
