Hydrogen Generation and Utilization

Hydrogen Generator

The Other Hydrogen Economy™ is an expression that describes a collection of apparatus and processes that extract energy and distilled water from the ocean. A portion of that energy is utilized to generate hydrogen and life supporting oxygen. The hydrogen is later combined with atmospheric oxygen to produce electricity and potable water. A hydrogen pipeline network will allow communities to be created in places previously deemed unsuitable due to their lack of resources.

Hydroelectric Power

According to Wikipedia, hydropower remains the dominant source for renewable energy in the United States providing, at the time this was written, 45.71% of renewable power.

The Hollow Turbine™ is an efficient, award winning turbine design suitable for typical hydropower and micropower installations, as well as offshore  installations.

One design incorporates a unique, patented buoyancy means that further enhances the turbine’s efficiency. This model resulted in a high efficiency hydroelectric generator, suitable for low head, ultra low head, and pipeline applications.

The innovations incorporated into the Hollow Turbine™ and Hollow Generator™ also increase the efficiency of axial flow pumps

Energy Storage

In order to effectively use intermittent renewable energy sources, there is a need for an efficient storage method that will provide base load power. Energy storage technologies also can be utilized by conventional power providers to store power during off-peak times, and sell this power at times of peak demand.

For grid storage, as well as for everywhere else, the Electric Power Storage Power Plant can serve as either a baseline or as a peaker power plant, absent all of the negative externalities of batteries.

The patented Self-Winding Generator,™ developed originally as a competent means for storing hydroelectric turbine rotational energy, also provides a unique method of storing solar thermal energy.
