Did you know ? Rainenergy brings light from rainwater

In Azerbaijan, Reyhan Jamalova, a 15-years-old high school student, invented a device to generate electricity thanks to rainwater. At a height of 9 meters, the device is composed of a rainwater collector, a tank, an electric generator and a battery. Rainwater fills the tank and flows at high speed through the generator that produces electricity, which is then stored in the battery. Two prototypes were developed: with 7 litres of water, the first prototype can light 3 LED lamps for 50 seconds, against 22 LED lamps for the second prototype. For the young inventor, Rainenergy could be commercialized in rainy countries with limited access to electricity, such as the Philippines, India, Indonesia or Malaysia. Thanks to her invention, the high-school student figures in the FORBES ranking of the 30 personalities under 30 years in Asia!
