Wind Power capacity in the United States has continued to experience strong growth. Recent advances in renewable energy technologies and cost reductions are also driving factors. Wind, solar, biomass, all used to be experimental or very much inefficient and cost-prohibitive decades ago. Wind capacity has been driven by improvements in the cost and performance of wind power technologies, yielding low-priced wind energy for utility, corporate, and other power purchasers. According to the US Department of Energy, the prospects for growth are projected to increase due to demand and the global concern over environmental issues along with favorable tax incentives available in the United States.
The Atmospheric Wind Extractor (AWE) System is a radically new, efficient, and practical method of harnessing the Power of Wind. The power output of this patented technology is far greater than any current existing wind technologies. Additionally, the AWE Extractor has internal carbon scrubbers that will extract the levels of carbon in the air.
The AWE’s patented technology has the following advantages and characteristics:
- Ability to store energy using compressed air with 24/7 on-demand output
- Carbon Scrubbing and extraction
- Operates in winds as low as 2 mph/ 3.2 km/h
- Uses compressed air technology to turn multiple rotors by which electricity and water are produced.
- Full range of devices from transportable units of 375 KW to large scale units producing up to 48MW
- A low cost per installed KW, when the production process is industrialized
- Can be installed directly where power is needed
- Substantially smaller footprint than all other wind-powered technologies.
AWE CO2 Scrubbing
– AWE EXTRACTOR uses compressed air collection with multiple removable containers
- The removable containers contain activated carbon which has properties where the CO2 is trapped and absorbed into activated carbon materials.
- The “cleaned” activated transportable carbon container is then available for reuse.
- The extracted CO2 will qualify for carbon credits and along with the non-release applications generate added revenue that more than covers any cost of the extraction equipment and processes.
