IDEA

As I think for what you have said in this project, Need for the project is to find an alternative source of energy. And your suggestion is the available electrical energy from the lightning. could be a source.

You intend to convert lightning energy into useful electrical energy. But, The lightning itself is a useful electrical energy, So we don’t need to convert into something useful. But to reduce the huge power and voltage in a short span of time. A device that could rapidly step down and store energy immediately as well. Storing has been the huge problem in getting useful energy from Lightning. So that narrows down to an effective Storage device.

I am not familiar with electrical properties, so perhaps this wont have any application to this issue. However, the step down method has been tried with lightning and doesn’t work. What if raw electrical energy was allowed to discharge into some kind of loop and rather than try to absorb it and store it in one burst, instead allow it to freely cycle through the loop while siphoning off small amounts of energy until the remaining energy is at a low enough level to be stored? In other words, don’t try to stop its flow…redirect it until manageable.

Yes, the lightning will be the alternative source of energy. the lightning is made of charged particles. so we should think about "how to store charge particles?"
The Van de graff generator can produce these much amounts of energy, and it is store in a hollow sphere. Now, this could be our inspiration for storing the power of lightning.
And one thing, the power of lightning should be store before lightning phenomena, after that means lightning there will not be any energy because the whole energy will dissipate in lightning.
If we want to store it, we should store it when it is in the charge form.

1st we made a type of device which can store huge amount of charge my work in progess about this type of device

what if we look at lightening most closley to individual electrons. to store that would need storage spaces in a bigger unit like a solar panel. so if a lightening rod earths ii into a probably postivity cahrged solar panel like material i think it could trap it.

Thedal has identified the main issue here, even if you could capture the energy from lightning, it would be a wasted effort due to the constraints of current limitations on storage.

Here in the U.S. for example, turbines under water and well as wind turbines on land can produce shockingly massive amounts of energy, however right now there is no efficient means to store it, and move it to other locations where it is needed, so as of right now we are already wasting massive amounts of “clean” energy,

the question we should be asking is not how to capture but how to store and transfer

#Tesla Step Down Transformer seems good… if we can step down it immediately, it will get converted High Current Step Down Electricity… we can distribute it RealTime… one way of getting rid of need of Storage until we find better ones…
Talking about Battery Technology… Current NanoTech wire mess based batteries claims to have 400 Times LiOn batteries… very amazing… if its true the we chafe our Tab one time and it will last for months!! If This nanotech battery becomes practical in coming days then Storage problem will also be solved.
