Frank Shuman (January 23, 1862 – April 28, 1918) was an American inventor, engineer and solar energy pioneer known for his work on solar engines, especially those that used solar energy to heat water that would produce steam. Shuman's visionary ideals, most of which were not publicly accepted until sixty years later, were evident when he made the statement, "One thing I feel sure of... is that the human race must finally utilize direct sun power or revert to barbarism."

In 1892 Frank Shuman invented wire glass safety glass.[1] Additional patents were issued relating to the process of making wire glass and machines for making wire glass. In 1914 Shuman invented a process for making laminated safety glass, called safety glass,[2] and manufactured by the Safety Glass Company. In 1916 he patented a "Danger Signal" for railroad crossings,[3] as well as the use of liquid oxygen or liquid air to propel a submarine.[4]

Wasn't his big installation in the desert in Egypt? It worked as a proof of concept but World War I happened right as it was coming online. All the major powers got focused on Petroleum because of the advantages of motorized transport because of things like the Taxi Brigade from Paris.

On September 6. 1914. the military governor of Paris, General Joseph-Simon Gallieni, sought to extricate from France's choked rail system the Army's 7th Division. It was arriving from the frontier to join the 6th Army defending Paris. Told of a shortage of army motor vehicles and drivers, Gallieni said "Why not use taxis?" All Parisian taxis and their drivers were immediately assembled at the Esplanade des Invalides. "What about the fare," asked one of the taxi drivers. Compensation eventually did materialize at 27% of the meter reading.

The lead column of about 150 empty taxis left Paris that night under a Lieutenant Lefas and went to Tremblay-les-Gonesses for further orders. Advance was slow, breakdowns occurred, and no orders awaited him at the Tremblay, only puzzlement from the duty officer. About 4 am. on September 7 the expedition of now supplemented to over 400 vehicles was directed to Dammartin to await further orders from the 6th Army.
