An energy harvesting system that can use pressurized ambient gas that is a 24/7-accessible natural resource and hurricane-proof to produce all your electricity needs in a cheap manner is a gamechanger. The pressure conversion unit uses only $.05 per kWh when it periodically activates to collect moisture in the air, even in arid regions. I
An energy harvesting system that can use pressurized ambient gas that is a 24/7-accessible natural resource and hurricane-proof to produce all your electricity needs in a cheap manner is a gamechanger. The pressure conversion unit uses only $.05 per kWh when it periodically activates to collect moisture in the air, even in arid regions. Its ability to separate moisture from the stored air and filter that stored water can end lack of access to water in areas facing drought or other.

Besides scalable microgrids, we sell our scalable, patented 12V linear generators. Check out the video of the floating capability of our AC to DC linear generators.
A combined heat and power (CHP) system, our portable air to electricity mobile microgrid relates to the fields of electrical generation, transference and storage. The multiplier energy system generates and stores excess energy derived from 2 electrical energy sources - renewables and storable thermal energy-based electrical generation - to produce and store energy as compressed heat. Stored compressed heat is then redirected to generators to produce excess electricity. This excess electricity is stored in a second electrical storage. Compared to existing combustible CHP systems, our cogeneration microgrid:
1. converts and stores airborne water molecules at 66% efficency,
2. converts and stores 24/7-accessible surrounding energies onsite, rather than paying supply costs to ship them in,
3. stores 24/7-accessible compressed ambient gas, or air as storable heat, for anytime use,
4. generates and stores excess cogenerative energies, where a secondary electrical production avenue is accessible for excess electricity around 90% efficiency,
5. operates on an abundant resource that is 0-emissioned and combustible-free,
6. utilizes batteries to prevent intermittent periods and,
7. utilizes a series of high frequency reciprocating generators to produce excess high energy density onsite rather than conventional combustible turbines that are heavy, require massive amounts of energy per rotation, and rely on excess limited combustible resources to operate.
Currently, combustible energy is costly, as existing utility companies charge exorbitant rates, limited in one shape or form and non-renewable. Energy is the lifeblood of our society. Unfortunately, we live in a combustible energy world, where our society runs off combustion, from our cars to generating electricity. Combustion runs on costly, toxic, limited resources like fossil fuels and natural gas. This current energy scenario that is based on combustible is increasing climate change, destroying our environment, and working against the Paris Climate Change Convention.
Combustible energy utilize chemically-explosive fuels or reactants to generate electricity. In this day and age, many issues surround the way energy is generated and distributed. First and foremost, current energy generation relies on non-renewable combustible fuels – such as oil, coal and natural gas – that are both unsustainable and detrimental to the environment. Additionally, the companies that provide energy to the people are overcharging due to the vital role electricity plays in modern society. Finally, the infrastructure associated with energy generation and transportation is limited in reserves, costly, prone to failure resulting in blackouts, emits harmful emissions on an irreversible level, is overstretched due to centralized powering which is very susceptible to increasing hurricane damages that frequently leave thousands without power, and susceptible to attacks in areas experiencing conflict, violence, corruption and extremely high poverty levels. Of the 1.2 billion world citizens who live in the dark, around 550 million live in Africa. due to lack of funding for costly combustible energy systems that would require a serious infrastructure revamp. Only 42% of its citizens have access to electricity according to the African Development Bank; In Sub-Saharan Africa, access to electricity is even lower, at 30 percent overall and 14 percent in rural areas. This lack of light has ripple effects across many other areas: Children do not get a quality education because they are unable to study at night, and modern health care facilities become inaccessible.
The 2013 original version produced 28W (15W solar) and utilized a variety of generators - turbines and magnetic induction.
After further R&D, the 2014 second version produced 165W (45W solar).
The current 2016 third version produces 300-340W (100W solar), producing the most electricity per second due to the simultaneous triggering of generators. Unlike past models, this model is customizable, allowing for multiple generator rows to be added.
