Rainergy

Abstract

Researches show that during the precipitation billions of gallons rain water occurs over the world. Which has huge potential if utilized in right way. The Rainergy designed to produce electricity from the rain to solve problem of energy deficiency in the rainy and low income countries. Our device consists of 4 major parts. Rain collector fills the water tank with rain water which then goes through the electricity generator at high speed and generates the electricity through the motion created by the wheel. Then the electricity energy stored in the accumulator for the further implementation.

Actually Rainergy has big potential for the rainy countries ( like India, Indonesia, Philippines etc. ). Most importantly, poor people can benefit from this device. At the same time Rainergy device can be used for lighting street lamps, advertisements and etc.

Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

Based on our researches our total available market is about 1.5 billion people who lives in rainy countries. In these countries 33mln peoples live in rural areas who has no or very limited access to energy and therefore the Rainergy has huge potential to be a painkiller for these segment. We plan to sell our product to 2% of this segment.

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

Researches show that during the precipitation billions of gallons rain water occurs over the world. Which has huge potential if utilized in right way. The Rainergy designed to produce electricity from the rain to solve problem of energy deficiency in the rainy and low income countries.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

To construct and to use other current alternative energy solution (solar panel or wind turbine) is so difficult. You need an energy or electricity expert for construction and using. But to construct and to use Rainergy is so easy. Let’s say Rainergy has easy construction. This is the most competitive advantage of Rainergy. The other competitive advantage is turbine based unique modular design that gets electricity from rain more effectively compared to the similar piezoelectric systems.And also we are going to apply for patent that gives us advantage at the market.

Explain how you (your team) will execute to make this idea/product successful? What gives you (your team) an advantage over others already in the market or new to this market?

We are team of schoolchildren and experienced physicist who believe that skies have big potential as a clean energy source. That gives us advantage over others already in the market.
