Comments from the Inventor
For the last four years W-2 Energy Development Corporation (W2) has been engaged in studying the need for a more efficient method to extract energy from flowing wind and water. Parallel to a continuing study of the energy industry we have developed engineering concepts that have been transformed into a series of prototypes to demonstrate that an improved efficiency can be achieved for harvesting the available energy from these renewable and naturally occurring resources.
W2 now is approaching that stage known generally as "shovel ready" and is in seeking significant financing to bring the technology to market. This is the point of corporate development where reorientation of organizational structures and utilization of a wider range of support resources is required in a different context and needed most. The plan is for W2 Energy to emerge quickly at this critical point of development. This will happen only if adequate financing is obtained.
The written information and the graphics presented here are meant to give a general impression and a fairly comprehensive view of our technology. We are not presenting performance data at this time, and will not be in a position to do so until our prototype testing program is completed. Early indications are that it will be significant. At that time we will be happy to share it and I will make available comparative engineering data and the cost/output projections for units of comparable size to those in existence today.
There is one critical point I would like to emphasize - one that is essential to understand and sets the W2 approach apart from the generally accepted products that are on the market today. The technology we are developing is not singularly dedicated to producing electricity, but rather is designed to be a part of a system for more efficiently extracting and utilizing energy from flowing wind and water.
Our WindWing and WaterWing technology was conceived and and developed to show that a more efficient and more cost-effective approach is not only possible but requisite for satisfying our energy requirements for the present as well as the future. In this respect our concentration has been to develop a new extraction technique with the realization that the quality of engineering available for specific applications will be more appropriate and efficient than we would be because of the diversity of applications that must be addressed.
One size does not fit all and our goal is to provide the applications engineering community a method for supplying a force that can be used in whatever fashion most efficient for their application. Our goal throughout the development of this project has been to provide a conversion of natural resource energy into a form that can be adapted for many applications, not only the generation of electricity. However, the system will address many of the problems associated with the production of electricity and we are concentrating some of our effort on making "the light bulb come on." Our continuing focus will be to provide an effective force at the point of use for any application, be it pumping water, compressing air, creating a vacuum, driving refrigeration units, or drilling a hole, just to mention a few of the possibilities.
Essentially, this approach recognizes that the currently accepted model for using renewable energy is one that requires its conversion to electricity. This is the faulty part of the commercial thinking of today and this mindset has to change if the demands for the utilization of universally available natural energy are to be met.
In Hawaii where we are forming an LLC, there is a known need of paramount importance in all the islands to control and mitigate the cost of electricity. Even so, there is little or no activity associated with adopting new energy utilization techniques. Nor are there any inexpensive and acceptable methods for producing electricity without installing environmentally disruptive technologies that require importing large amounts of fuels that are not native to the islands. One W2 objective is to remedy this situation with more productive, inexpensive and practical solutions from the natural elements inherent in the islands.
Another objective of the Hawaii project is a plan to have this technology owned by Hawaiians, manufactured by Hawaiians, operated by Hawaiians and maintained by Hawaiians. All of this will be accomplished, to the highest degree possible, from the natural and Human resources currently available there. These are not unrealistic goals. Hawaii will be the initial model for the implementation of our technology
In this context the W2 technology, described as “elegant simplicity in design,” will not require major importation of human resources or exotic equipment. The demand for imported raw materials for manufacturing will be minimum.
I hope you find this brief description of our technology and our objectives of interest and worthy of continued dialogue. I will be happy to supply you with whatever additional information you may require and I would be pleased for the opportunity to make a direct presentation of the technology to whomever would be interested be it in Santa Barbara, California, Hawaii or whereever our prototypes are being developed and tested.
Thank you for your interest in the W2 Technology.
Sincerely yours with hope for the future ...
