Proposed revisions: Ivanpah Solar Power Facility[edit]

I have put some proposed revisions to the Ivanpah Solar Power Facility article on its talk page. There has been no discussion on the topic as of yet and I thought reaching out on this page might open up the dialogue. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Would someone please check Syngas#Energy capacity where it says "Syngas that is not methanized typically has a lower heating value of 120 BTU/scf." with a dead-link reference. At the talk page, we are trying to make sense of the unit "BTU/scf", and some verification of the value would also be useful. Johnuniq (talk) 10:13, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Photovoltaic software[edit]

Dear energy experts: This old AfC submission will soon be deleted as a stale draft. Is this a notable topic that should be kept and improved instead? Right now it lacks references. —Anne Delong (talk) 01:00, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

New approach using one natural magnet to produce energy[edit]

Hi I just had an idea that I just have to get out there. I don't care how ( or who makes it a reality , If it works. ) but realizing the urgent need for energy, I just had to give it a go. As we all know a natural magnet can " lift or pull " more then its own weight. It is precisely this that I wish to solve to produce energy. In the past multiple magnets just lock up, however by design I would like to attempt to use one natural magnet and the force of gravity to produce a direct current. By design I mean to use a pendulum with the natural magnet as the weight. By placing the pendulum in a vacuum with a high tolerance between the magnet and copper, ( magnet can be made in many shapes as to get the maximum effect )  I hope to produce a spark. Here's how it might work. With the weight of the magnet starting at the 12 o'clock position ( in a vacuum ) then falling with copper or maybe a better material along the path taken we can produce a current that could be stored for use at a " Timely moment ". In a vacuum the weight of the pendulum can carry almost back to the starting position before falling back. That would allow the pendulum effect to take place, back and forth as long is necessary to produce a large enough a spark of energy to activate an electronic magnet to repel the natural magnet in order to start the same process over again. The circumference size and strength of the magnet are beyond my understanding but if the idea is doable, I can imagine a peak performance on the balance of those two. I would imagine this would be based on the strength of the magnet able to lift more then its own weight. TYVM for taking the time to read this, Don Mathieu  P.S. I imagine the principle of the idea can be made in several ways.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:30, 23 October 2014 (UTC) 

Thorium Energy Alliance - Energy Crisis and Role of Thorium[edit]

The second paragraph is redundant, it's tone is extremely inconsistent with the rest of the article, and the content may have some faults.

Energy systems/energy system[edit]

There's a redirect at energy system redirecting to an ATP metabolism article. It occurs to me that there are many energy systems, and that this should lead elsewhere or be a disambiguation page. Do we have a general article or would it be energy ?

The article energy systems is proposed to be renamed, for the discussion, see talk:energy systems
