A2_7 Natural Solar Panels

Jeremy Hue, Robert Miller, James Anthony Farrow, Chris Checklin


The paper looks at the possibility of retrieving energy from rain and how the energy collected compares to using solar panels instead. It is worked out that the maximum energy obtainable from the collection of rainwater is 2.67x10^9h J per day, where h is the height of the water above the ground. Compared to the Lieberose photovoltaic farm which would produce 6.5x10^11J in similar conditions making this imagined method likely unviable.
