An adolescent with the assistance of his sibling and cousin from Awantipora zone of south Kashmir’s Pulwama region has accompanied the clever thought of producing power from a firepot.
Suhail Ahmad Repel (20), his sibling Abrar Ahmad Repel (16) and their cousin Mazim Ashraf (15) from Chersoo town of Awantipora are chipping away at many astounding things that will demonstrate useful for the entire mankind.
While talking to the news agency NewsGlory, Suhail said that from the last twenty days they were working to generate electricity from traditional Kangri and finally they have succeeded in it.
Suhail, a class 10th pass-out has applied to get admission in electrical engineering at IUST Awantipora while Abrar and Mazim-both class 8th students at Umar Memorial Institute Awantipora have been working on this project together.
“You know people from Kashmir especially students are suffering a lot due to unscheduled power cuts in the winter season and I started to work on how a person can generate electricity from his Kangri.
I hope this will prove beneficial for everyone especially students across the Kashmir valley,” he said while claiming that one firepot full of charcoal can generate electricity for around 4 hours.
He said that there will be no threat in utilizing the equivalent firepot for warming reason also. “I applied the idea of utilizing warm energy and I have utilized straightforward gear like bulb, batteries, thermoelectrically cooler and wires,”
He said Besides generating electricity from a firepot, Suhail said that he is also working on the concept of generating electrical energy from shoes while walking to charge mobile phones.
He said that he is working on converting the mechanical energy released from shoes while running or walking. “One can easily charge his phone from his own energy while walking through power bank as the energy released while walking can be stored in a power bank and then a phone can be charged.”
He said that the threesome is taking a shot at various ventures currently like how one would we be able to utilize wind energy and numerous different types of energy to assist humankind.
He said that they needn’t bother with any help from the administration as their sole rationale is to work to serve society and ideally, they will think of new creations very soon.
