Energy arbitrage, how to save money and the planet with batteries
This project would consist of building a device and writing software to charge a battery pack when electricity demand and price is low, and use the energy when demand and price is high. The software would scrape data from local energy suppliers and this system could contribute to the optimal usage of renewable energy resources, as well as saving the user money.
Mechanical plants, local CO2 capture and storage for improved quality of life
This project would consist of developing a device to pull CO2 from the air in an enclosed space, like a bedroom. It would explore the current CO2 capture technologies and implement a low cost option that could actually store the CO2 in some way
