Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Solar Novus:

Floating solar panels soaking up the sun on Italy’s Lake Colignola will provide a cost-effective, more visually attractive way to harness the sun’s power, says its inventor, Marco Rosa-Clot.

Rosa-Clot says while PV panels on buildings or fields use valuable farmland, lose energy through overheating and look ugly, his flower-petal-shaped panels come without these potential problems. The flat, rotating panels are winged by reflectors and sit on raft-like structures, anchored to the lakebed with a pylon.

The Floating Tracking Cooling Concentrator (FTCC) system takes advantage of unused areas of artificial reservoirs or disused quarries and the water keeps the panels cool. Reflectors maximize solar capture.
