New Solar Technology 2016

Teenage inventor, Aiden Dwyer, created a new solar technology that emulates how trees convert sunlight into energy.
Following in the footsteps of inventors who use biomimicry (the science that derives models, systems or processes from nature), Aiden studied trees to perfect a solar technology that generates electricity, faster, and more efficiently than flat solar panels…

How It Works

Trees, shrubs and plants use an inherent structural design to expose their leaves to sunlight for photosynthesis.
How well they do this determines their survival, especially in forested areas that are densely populated with competing vegetation.
Aiden utilized the information on how plants are structurally designed to create his new solar technology.
This information originates from 1202, when the Italian mathematician Fibonacci published a book entitled "Liber Abaci" that introduced to Western mathematicians a numerical sequence that originated in India.
The numerical sequence is: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13 and so on.
The first two numbers are 0 and 1, and each successive number is the sum of the previous two numbers.

Therefore, 0 + 1 is 1, 1 + 1 is 2, 1 + 2 is 3, 2 + 3 is 5, 3 + 5 is 8, 5 + 8 is 13 and so on.

The Fionnaci numbers are 3, 5 or expressed as the ratio 3/5 beginning from the bottom leaf. In other words 3 clockwise rotations for 5 leaves.
If we continue rotating our string upwards, we would make 5 rotations to meet 8 leaves to get to 13. The Fionnaci numbers are 5, 8, 13. This leaf arrangement creates the maximum exposure to sunlight.
Approximately 90 percent of plants are designed this way, however the patterns can begin at different ratios.
For example an elm tree begins at 1/2 (1 rotation for 2 branches), a beech is 1/3, an oak, cherry, or apple is 2/5, and a popular, pear or willow tree is 3/8..
