Student project holds prospect of cheap, reliable energy

Must Read

Kriesh Tivare, a student at Cooper Middle School, has been named one of 31 State Merit Winners in the 2022 3M Young Scientist Challenge competition.

Tivare’s project submission was “Nifty Nanogenerators,” a prototype that demonstrated a novel way for power generation through TriboElectricNanoGenerators, which because of their simple design and everyday materials are cheap to produce and easy to manufacture and maintain.

His project offers the possibility of a “new, green energy source,” Tivare said.

During the development process Tivare was able to refine the model and test it on a beach in order to determine its power generation, buoyancy and sustainability in water.


“Virginia alone has over 7,000 miles of shoreline,” Tivare said, and by placing the equipment in water sources, it would be possible to produce “affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all,” meeting goals of the United Nations and World Health Organization, he said.
