In today’s competitive environment of production and technology moving forward faster than in the last 100 years, it is of essence to have reliable sources of energy to facilitate a sustainable demand.
Recent peaks in crude oil derivatives have shown rising prices for transport and cost of manufacturing, therefore reducing company profits and increasing consumer prices, throwing economies and purchase power out of scale.
Energy is the most vital resource that we depend on, from home use to manufacturing. Among the increase in demand for energy we are challenged mainly by governing bodies to produce energy in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way, so called “renewable energy”.
Our planet has been around for a long time and always had more than enough renewable energy available, with our sun being the ultimate energy source. With light and heat, but also with gravity that has created a solar system that we all rely on.
Current use of renewable resources is hindered by their limited availability: Solar energy for 12 hours, wind energy when wind is available, hydropower when there is water. These renewable resources are not offering the constant energy supply that we need and can not keep up with our ever growing demand. To be quite blunt, the industry cannot rely on a sunny day to capture solar energy, a windy day to power windmills or a rainy day to power hydroelectric plants. Therefore development is focusing on power storage mainly through batteries that once again demand enormous amounts of energy for the mining of lithium, manufacturing of the batteries as well as recycling at the end of their lifetime. Solar panels and windmills have a limited lifetime as well and need a lot of energy for their production and installation. And we cannot be sure that they will produce the required amount of energy while they last. Alas green energy is not very green to manufacture, install and decommission.
Hundreds of years ago renewable energy was used in remote areas to build farmlands and cities, without the need for advanced energy networks and high tech batteries. The Dutch have used the power of the wind on an industrial scale from the 1590s despite its unreliable availability. Still they can proudly say their windmills enabled them to reclaim land from the seas. It is quite a disappointment that today, hundreds of years later we still regard windmills as a breakthrough technology that will change the world.
So, what is our view on providing an energy source that is as close to the user as possible, that provides constant energy without any emissions and without unpredictable costs? What is the energy or force we will use? The answer has always been out there in our solar system and is as simple as ‘catching and releasing’ in a circular motion. By combining weights to harvest gravity and air for continuity into an AirGravityMill we are creating a TRUE and continuous renewable energy source. A true revolution in renewable energy!
We do not intend to create mega structures and rely on a network to transport our energy over long distances. Like the Dutch did for ages with their solitary windmills we want to install thousands of smaller units at the site of the energy consumer. Not relying on advanced networks or batteries reduces operational costs to a fraction and requires only minor infrastructural modifications. And small units do not require costly and complex licensing or building permits.
We no longer need to look at the cost of creating and delivering for instance 1 megawatt of energy. We simply calculate the cost of producing a machine with such capacity and the cost to install and maintain that machine on site.
That is our view and our mission…
