UNIQUE VALUE PROPOSITIONS of an Air-to-Electricity Microgrid:
- The energy invention is categorized under the fields of electrical production, transference and storage.
- The system is an isothermal-based generator and storage system, where is stores thermal energy as well as bidirectional flow electrical storage.
- Besides its multiple storage capacity, the system generates excess electricity onsite using a plural of electrical production methods.
- Allows 24/7 access to storable electricity and pressurized gas.
- Stored heat energy can easily be manipulated or increased. When we double the cycle of the total generators by manipulating the stored pressure, daytime efficiency rises to 83.8% and 80.5% at night. Even at current energy input-to-output ratio (300-340W output with solar versus 94W motor), the energy efficiency during the day (Renewable + CHP) is 73% and 61% at night (CHP alone).
- Alleviates intermittency issues periods regarding renewable electrical generation by utilizing ambient gas and renewables as auxiliary energy sources, thereby providing multiple electrical production avenues to promote access to reliable, high energy densities.
- Utilizes high frequency reciprocating generators instead of high amplitude turbine generators to produce high density electricity faster with gas.
- Negates limited feed line resource issues that natural gas, oil, water and other resources have run into due to either regional limitations or accessing the onsite availability of fuel line resources.
- Can be scaled to other various model sizes including:
Handheld – 100W, 200Wh,
Desktop – 300-340W, 576Wh,
Medium Buildings or EV – 5kw, 10kwh,
Large Buildings – 10kw, 20kwh
- The DoE appraises storable heat energy (compressed air) to be only $.05 per kWh, which is significantly cheaper when compared to the East Coast utility rates (National Grid or Eversource), which charges between $250-$300 per month using fluctuating rates ($.07 from July to December and $.11 from January to June, with fixed being $.097. Within a 40-year period, the consumer pays $53,000 or more due to increased supply costs for feed lines that are passed down to the consumer to pay. On the West Coast, the average delivered minimum bill for PG&E is $.32, with the average total rate being $.22 per kwh.
- Residential and electric vehicle consumers can pick and choose a packaged monthly plan at the affordable fixed rate of $.05 per kwh ($153) all year round for unlimited access to self-rechargeable high density electricity day or night. Leasing and maintenance fees will apply.
