On this page I will try to explain my photomontage, my vision ov the future.

What sources of energy I use and where I use it.

Space elevator

A space elevator is a proposed non-rocket spacelaunch structure (a structure designed to transport material from a celestial body's surface into space). Many elevator variants have been suggested, all of which involve travelling along a fixed structure instead of using rocket-powered space launch, most often a cable that reaches from the surface of the Earth to geostationary orbit (GSO) and a counterweight outside of the geostationary orbit. In this case it will be elevator with a fill of solar panels.

Vertical windmills

Vertical windmills aren’t such a recent concept. In fact, despite that we are accustomed to seeing horizontal axis windmills, the first windmills invented were the vertical ones. The first functional types were invented in the 9th century, but their design has changed very much over the years in order to get a higher efficiency from them. Vertical windmills have many advantages. One of them is the low sound that they make. Horizontal windmills usually are very noisy, a fact that is proven by their settlements in non-populated or low populated areas with not so many habitants around. Due to their silent work, vertical windmills are most of the times used by humans for their homes, cities or commercial buildings. Another advantage that vertical windmills have is that they can capture more wind than horizontal windmills. No matter the direction from which the wind blows, vertical windmills can capture it and transform it into energy. We can’t say the same about the horizontal axis type windmills. A vertical windmill is easier to maintain. It is also safer to do it, too. We owe this to the fact that the location of the generator is at the ground level. Because it is in such a handy place and uncomplicated to repair, we save more time and energy when we give it maintenance or when we repair it. Using the vertical windmills’ design also brings benefits for the birds. Birds often fly into the horizontal axis windmill. From this point of view the vertical axis type is safer and there are minimal chances for birds to fly into its blades. Vertical windmills can also have a highly esthetical look, as they can be adapted to the surrounding area. They don’t have a pre-established pattern to pursue when building them. You can find them in many shapes.

Combined function

In this case, I tried to combine several functions. Why the solar panels and Maintenance wind generators can not work together? On the following diagram shows how this is possible.

Difference between atmospheric pressure

When we have a realy long pipe, it should be about 200-300 kilometer and at the opposite ends of the pipe is a different atmospheric pressure therefore there is begins a strong draft. Inside of this pipe we have a windmills and eventually you can get about 700-800 MW/h, it's as much as you can get from one nuclear reactor. It's happening because the wind is blowing at speeds of 150 km / h.
