I have written several times in the past about turnkey solutions being deployed by some telecommunications companies, notably Alcatel-Lucent, to extend the mobile telecommunications network in the absence of an established electricity source. Now, two World Economic Forum technology pioneers--Vihaan Networks Ltd.
Here's a trick question for you: How do you power mobile telecommunications base stations in the middle of nowhere, especially in developing countries where there's no electricity line in sight.Apparently, the standard operating procedure has been to schlep diesel fuel from location to location, with a four-wheel drive vehicle, hoping not to attract the attention of fuel pirate who might have other ideas for your cargo.
Alternative power supplies can prove lucrative US$2.3 billion market for mobile operators and benefit 485 million mobile users without access to electricity grid.
Chinese and U.S. researchers have developed a carbon nanotube-coated smart yarn which can conduct electricity and be woven into textiles to detect blood or to monitor health. According to one of the lead researchers, today's smart textiles, which are made of metallic or optical fibers, are fragile and not comfortable. So the team combined two fibers, one natural and one created by nanotechnology, to build a new kind of smart textile. If a soldier wearing clothes made with this fabric was wounded, his mobile phone could alert a nearby patrol to save his life. But read more...
US mobile power generation firm M2E Power has developed a mini-generator for mobile devices which turns kinetic energy into electricity, using the principle of induction.

Nokia issued a press release today announcing that they are the first mobile phone maker to add energy saving alerts to their devices. These alerts encourage people to unplug their phone charger from the outlet once the phone is fully charged. The release states this could save enough electricity to power 85,000 homes a year. I never really thought much about leaving my chargers plugged in after charging up my devices and with the number of devices I use I could probably save enough energy to power up my home state of Washington so I will try to unplug from now on. The new Nokia alerts will launch on the Nokia 1200, 1208, and 1650 and then be rolled out in all their devices eventually.
Geospatial solutions provider Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions has been awarded a contract to provide an outage and mobile workforce management system based on Intergraph's InService for South Australian electricity distribution company ETSA Utilities.Using the new system, ETSA Utilities expects to improve outage management processes and optimise network reliability, crew dispatch capability, mobile tracking for 200 field units and outage reporting.
