    I made a Renewable energy powered clothes dryer but theres more to consider than you think....

    I made this as I'm hosting "Pitch the Future" the Virtual event being run buy the Shell Eco Marathon team as normal events this year have been affected by the Pandemic.
    Check out the Live pitches from student teams trying to solve real world problems and reduce Co2 emissions in 4 sectors here www.makethefuture.shell/en-gb...

Now this is a very Low Tech approach to green energy but its always good to start simple and who knew about the washing machine door shape being so important lol. What other green projects would you like to see as this has got me thinking, Theres some great pitches from the teams with energy from falling rain aero efficient Traffic sequencing and different materials to improve batteries so hope this completion helps these things become a reality.

Using Copper plates for the drum and painting it black would improve the efficiency massively (: The most funny thing however would be to attach solar panels all around the drum and add the motor with a worm gear at the back, which engages to a sprocket which gets turned by the wind turbine. Only the sprocket would need a one way clutch of some kind, like in the current build.

I know I'm late Mr. Colin but can we make the wind catcher bit with lighter materials like plastic or synthetic cloth? Also aluminum instead of steel for its brace/frame? Also can we adapt the helix design instead?

People in dry climates just run the dryer motor on solar. Easier just to mod a dryer with a DC motor. I run a LG washer on solar panels with no battery. Only on rare occasions will it stop when a cloud goes over, but the washer remembers where it was when restarted. I run the washer with hot water on all cycles giving me steamy clean clothes. That free hot water heated by PV again no batteries so a very carbon neutral. Electronics is the way to go. Dishwasher with heated dry also on solar. Whole summer home runs on only a single car battery.

This one could easily go on one of those useless inventions show. It's a solar powered clothes drier, when the sun is already good at drying clothes if you just hang them out to dry.

the drum needs some baffles? fins? to separate the clothes as the drum turns. that would help keep the clothes from sliding around the inside rather than tumbling. there could even be some blunt hooks for items to hang on as they went high to sort of stretch them out

Even simpler design: some wires between 2 walls and a roof over it.... the cloths doesnt get wet from potential rain and can dry naturally without any electrical fancy gizmo's ... dry in a few hours... worked well for the last 5000 yrs... K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simpel.... Silly....

Paint the drum with black paint, so that it absorbs more solar heat. And maybe some reflective panels around to catch even more solar heat in the drum. A thick bottom plate, insulated from below to radiate heat after sunset is another improvement i imagine could work.

Unnecessarily large (and heavy), the slick plastic surface dissuades actual "tumbling" of the clothes (could add a few obstructing inside bars like tumblers have) making a bunch of them stick to the surface, could have been infinitely better if the wheel had more holes as that's what lets air through & moisture out and the added plywood will be very susceptible to rotting and warping due to English weather and the part where you're stuffing it with wet clothes. You should've also watched the forecast before making the wind turbine (and i do hope you added some sort of safety breaks to that thing).. Or just gone the extra mile and made your own photovoltaic cells by using copper sheets.
