Solar Wind Energy offers a bold new approach to the United States and other nations aggressively pursuing energy independence with clean, sustainable energy solutions – one that overcomes the current limitations of known alternative energy sources and can produce up to 1,250 megawatts.
The company is the innovator and creator behind the Solar Wind Downdraft Tower, the only hybrid solar-wind technology in the market today capable of producing an abundant amount of inexpensive electricity.
Solar Wind Energy designed, engineered, and developed its large Solar Wind Downdraft Tower structure utilizing a number of proven technologies and construction systems. Solar Wind Downdraft Towers use benevolent, non-toxic natural elements to generate electricity economically by integrating and synthesizing numerous proven as well as emerging technologies.
Today, Solar Wind Energy’s core objective is to meet the world’s increasing demand for electricity. In order to achieve this, the Company intends to establish financing and energy-profit share partnerships with various entities such as utilities, sovereign nations and independent power producers, at home and abroad, to finance, build, and operate customized solar wind downdraft towers across the globe. Solar Wind Energy’s solutions are highly capable of yielding clean energy to the world’s communities at a reasonable cost without the destructive residuals of fossil fuel.
The Solar Wind Downdraft Tower is the first hybrid solar-wind renewable energy technology in the market. The patented structure is comprised of a tall hollow cylinder with a water injection system near the top and wind tunnels containing turbines near the bottom.
To start, a series of pumps deliver water to the Tower’s injection system at the top where a fine mist is cast across the entire opening. The water introduced by the injection system then evaporates and is absorbed by hot dry air which has been heated by the solar rays of the sun. As a result, the air becomes cooler, denser and heavier than the outside warmer air, and falls through the cylinder at speeds up to and in excess of 50 mph. Evaporation and the resulting cooling of the downdraft air from the evaporate process is key to the downdraft wind velocities. This air is then diverted into wind tunnels surrounding the base of the Tower where turbines inside the tunnels power generators to produce electricity.
According to Solar Wind Energy C.E.O Ronald W. Pickett they have not constructed a Solar Wind Energy Tower in Africa although the climate conditions in certain geographic locations in Africa are ideal for their solution.
Africa presents many regional opportunities. The region in Kenya just south and east of Lake Turkana is excellent as well as Southern Namibia. Any of the N African nations could develop Tower compounds and pipe Direct Current under the Med to Europe, while, at the same time produce Alternating Current for themselves. The Towers can produce either DC or AC or both simultaneously.
Solar Wind Energyis is in search of new business partners to expand their business in the region.
