About Kosmik Energy
Kosmik Energy Inc is a company engaged in developing scalable energy resources with a focus on environmental well-being. The primary focus of the company is promoting the usage of optical fiber daylighting, a method that facilitates the efficient utilization of natural light indoors, aiming to make it more commonplace.
Centered on promoting sustainability and environmental responsibility, Kosmik Energy Inc is working towards ensuring that their business activities have a limited ecological footprint. Through the incorporation of novel technologies and services, the company aspires to positively influence various aspects of life, including health, education, and financial stability.
At the heart of the company’s strategy is the concept of daylighting, which essentially involves using sunlight to illuminate spaces indoors. The company acknowledges the sun as a consistent and plentiful source of energy. To harness this natural resource effectively, the company has designed an autonomous robot that follows the sun’s trajectory throughout the day. This robot is equipped with specialized lenses that help it to remain perpendicular to the sun, focusing the sun’s rays onto a panel situated onboard.
A distinctive solution that the company provides leverages the principle of total internal reflection. This mechanism enables light to traverse considerable distances within transparent mediums. The company’s system channels sunlight into optical fibers, which then distribute the light to different parts inside buildings, aiding in illuminating the space naturally.
Integral to the company’s daylighting system is the three-degree-of-freedom (3-DOF) solar tracker. This device has an impressive strength-to-weight ratio and offers an extended optical area, facilitating a higher light concentration. The ultimate aim of the company is to deliver sunlight in a sustainable manner, with superior efficiency levels, resonating with the principles championed by Thomas Edison regarding the potential of solar energy.
