Efficient Way to Collect Solar Energy

Aidan Duayr, 13 year old schoolboy has used the Fibonacci sequence to develop a more efficient way to collect solar energy. Fibonacci sequence begins with the numbers 0 and 1, at the same time each successive number is the sum of the previous two: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13. So during the winter forays into the Catskill Mountains, Aidan drew attention to how the branches on the trees allocated and decided to understand this question. He knew that the branches and leaves collect  sunlight  for  photosynthesis, so decided to experiment with the Fibonacci sequence. After a series of experiments, he was able to create a tree-like stand, on which were mounted solar panels in accord with the Fibonacci sequence.  

He calculated   the    efficiency   of   the  distribution panels in such a way and compared with the efficiency of solar panels that are arranged in a row. As it turned out Fibonacci sequence, and such distribution significantly increases the efficiency of collection of sunlight. Tree-like structure takes less space than a flat panel and can be effective even where closed views of the south.This allows to collect more light in winter. Shadow and bad weather, such as snow, don’t affect on this construction, because the panels aren’t flat.
