Open Source Photovoltaics
Open source PV, from Nanosolar:
A plan to use synergistic energy capture in PV scheme to continually reproduce PV panels while providing all electrical power needed. Energy produced by PV panels goes towards electrolysis, the H2 and O2 gases produced cool the PV panel to enhance efficiencies. The heat of the panels and from electrolysis inefficiencies creates a pressure rise in the gase, and is captured in an expander. The H2 and O2 are then used in the formation of pure silicon for more panels.
