REGN is a rainfall energy harvester taking the guise of a simple connector insert between rain gutter pipelines. Rainfall is an often overlooked source of renewable energy due to its unpredictable nature.
The REGN is designed to involve:
i. The efficient capture of rainfall
ii. Utilisation of rainfall (a source of natural renewable energy)
iii. Regions prone to rainy seasons?
Sustainability problem: Energy, Rainwater, efficiency
- The insert utilizes the motion of rainwater diverted from roofing structures along gutter pipelines to generate electricity by electromagnetic induction as magnets located on a spindle within a funnel column is spun on a plane coincident to copper coils leading to an external output connector.
- Fluid flow was designed around a planar cross-section, the design is easily adapted to American (rectangular) and Commonwealth (circular) pipeline standards.
- The exterior of the device is specified to be made from materials able to provide ample shielding from tropical heat and UV…
