A seemingly contradictory statement
that may nonetheless be true.
The Tidal Gravity Engine
I am looking for a company interested in developing a new renewable production technology from the sea.
I have developed a new concept to generate energy from the rise and fall of the tide.
As the demand for energy grows, As the price of energy grows, As the need for more clean none polluting renewable energy grows, Everyone in the energy generation business realises there is a market for any new source of renewable energy.
I believe I have identified a new method of generating energy from the sea, it involves gathering energy from the rise and fall of the tide.
Renewable energy from the sea is a vast natural resource we can exploit, if we can find a technology that will not have an environmental impact.
Of the three major sources
of renewable solar, wind and the sea, tidal energy is yet to be fully
exploited, the tide rises and falls twice a day, potentially yielding
vast amounts of energy.
A brief insight into the new technology I want to build -
The tide constantly rises
and falls providing free 'vertical energy movement'.
The rise of the tide pushing upward and later as the sea falls and allows gravity to exert a downward pull, this is an energy that can be utilised but it is not directly suited for conventional energy generation, we need a new (unconventional) conversion technology.
My technology would convert this 'slow motion vertical energy' into energy capable of driving conventional electricity generators. My design will recover/extract energy in several ways.
As the time of the tide cycle
constantly changes my concept involves several methods of capturing,
converting and storing this 'slow motion energy', making it available
for use when the tide times fall outside peek domestic requirement and
until required at peek times to provide energy throughout the whole
The system is an integrated energy capture, storage and retrieval system, using several conventional technologies.
If successful the technology could be built into the coast, some distance form the sea out of sight and virtually un-seen.
This is not a wave capture technology or barrage, it is a new energy capture concept, at its core it uses floatation devices for energy capture.
I have deliberately not included any technical details to protect intellectual property rights.
Vast areas of suitable coastline
around the UK would be suitable for this technology and unlike to wind
turbine technology this technology could be sited inland, close to the
sea but enclosed and have minimal visual impact.
This is at present an idea
on paper awaiting investment to begin the project.
I am looking for a company
that is interested in research into new energy generation technology.
If your company is committed to advances in renewable energy, reducing the impact on global climate change caused by burning fossil fuels and producing more clean energy from renewable energy, this project when successful will have an impact.
I live in Flintshire in the UK which is an ideal location due to our tidal coast and river Dee to construct and test a prototype.
I would like to try to find
a company interested in research, design and innovation
