Rain could be the next source of renewable energy


In recent times, there have been several reports that suggest that fossil fuels will eventually run out and for this reason, many are looking into alternative and renewable sources of energy. This includes solar, which is from the sun, wind energy, and hydro which generally relies on dams.

However, it seems that researchers have found that maybe rain could be another potential form of renewable energy that we could look at.

This is thanks to the efforts of researchers who have developed a generator that uses a field-effect transistor-style structure to generate voltage from water droplets, such as those from rain. In fact, their research has found that this could be highly effective as one drop is said to be capable of generating 140V, enough to power 100 small LED bulbs.

While we imagine that there is still a lot of work left to be done before this can be used commercially, there is a lot of merit and potential to this.
