An Armenian inventor says his invention could cut energy consumption used in farming 40-60 percent.
According to inventor Vahan Hamazaspyan, helioification – consumption of solar energy – is a necessity for a country like Armenia, which has limited energy resources.
Doctor of Technical Sciences Hamazaspyan and his colleagues and students have been working on the device called ‘Combined HelioSystem’ for 15 years, improving it year by year. HelioSystems are designed for domestic consumption, and mainly for food processing, especially in farming, because they work in the open air. The devices are mirrors, combined with a parabola system, which can accumulate the solar energy in one point. The thermal capacity of the devices, depending on the area, ranges from 3.3 kilowatts to 3.7 kilowatts.
