Cheap Clean Renewable Hydrogen Energy - Fuel From Water

Is Not a Dream Anymore - It Just Become a Reality


New hydrogen fuel can be generated from water cheaper than any fossil fuels we must use today, 790%cheaper than the current

cost of gasoline or diesel in the US, and 1400% cheaper than in the Czech Republic, and anything in-between in other countries based on breakthrough discovery by ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES CZ a.s.


In certain ways, this new, revolutionary technology will provide exactly what is needed to solve the global energy needs. At the same time, it may be destructive to those we depend on for our current energy needs unless they start exploring not just new drilling grounds, but also start thinking a new strategies and take the lead in new possibilities  with a technology that just emerged, and start prepare themselves for the future without the need of burning the fossil fuels.

PRESS RELEASE


Prague, Czech Republic June 2, 2010 - Energy Technologies CZ a.s., a small private R&D company, has found success in their revolutionary technological improvements, “a better way to generate the cheapest hydrogen fuel yet,” says Karel Pesel, spokesmen for Energy Technologies CZ a.s.


As simple and straight-forward as electrolysis of water is, this method of hydrogen production has been considered expensive, burdened by the high cost of electricity, as well as by technical issues of storage and transportation. “We have made it possible consistently to produce this cheapest hydrogen fuel ever, at less than USD 0.50 per kilogram” (the amount equivalent to the energy content of one gallon of gasoline), says Pesel.


Water happens to be one of the most abundant natural resources that this planet has to offer; over 70% of our globe is covered with it, and no drilling or discovery is necessary. Using the Energy Technologies CZ process, clean hydrogen fuel can be produced on demand without the need for storage or transportation anywhere in the world. With small modifications to existing fuel systems, hydrogen fuel may be used anywhere fossil fuels are used today, including producing our electricity run our factories, running our cars, trucks, trains, boats, and planes. The only raw materials needed to produce this fuel are water and little electricity that many may already have in their homes around the world.

Along with technological improvements, the company is focusing on using the energy contained in the hydrogen fuel more resourcefully. By combining a next-gen electrolyzer with Stirling engine technology to build an ImPS™ (Independent micro Power Station™), this fully automated system is small enough for home or small business use and can produce 3 kW and up to 50 kW of electricity 24/7 and will recover a heat energy to provide all the heat and hot water that most homes will be ever able to use.
Additionally, this ImPS™ system is capable of producing more electricity than most homes will need, and most homeowners will be able to sell the surplus electricity to the power grid. The system will not only help to pay for itself, but the homeowner energy use may be essentially free.


With the push for energy efficient, “green” transportation, such as plug-in electric cars, the transportation industry is particularly interested in hydrogen fuel technology. Mr. Pesel said, “These electric cars will now be able to run much cheaper by electricity produced in your home by your own power station. In cars or trucks with build-in hydrogen fuel generators, it will be even cheaper since the car alternator is producing electricity as you drive and cost of electricity is close to zero—no more trips to the gas station. One liter of water can power your car to ride some 100 miles, and coming out of the tail pipe will be steam of pure water rather than pollutants.”


The widespread use of Energy Technology’s new hydrogen fuel system should initiate many global environmental and economic benefits. Imagine a world that doesn’t have to rely on crude oil reserves. Imagine every home producing all its energy needs and powering its vehicles; the concept of independence in energy self-reliance enjoyed only by few countries  may now be realized by all of us and will have a far reaching impact on everything we do.


About ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES CZ a.s
Energy Technologies CZ a.s. is incorporated in the Czech Republic and will be sharing the technology through licensing, ventures, and IPO’s around the world to better reflect our new role and new direction.

There is an undeniable fact, known well to scientists working to control thermonuclear fusion energy for peaceful power production:


    Enough deuterium (heavy hydrogen) is present in only one cubic kilometer of water to yield energy equal to the combustion energy of the entire world’s known reserves of oil if that deuterium were fused to helium at high temperatures. Put another way, in only one gallon of ordinary water, there is enough heavy hydrogen to produce the energy equivalent of 300 gallons of gasoline. Heavy hydrogen comprises only 0.015 percent of all the hydrogen in ordinary water, so there is no danger of a water depletion crisis from fusion energy. Heavy hydrogen or deuterium is naturally present in any water at approximately the same proportion. Deuterium is a hydrogen atom that bears an extra neutron in its nucleus. It is non-radioactive and fairly easy to extract. Yet even as billions of dollars have been spent trying to harness these energies during the past decades, we are not any closer to accessing these vast amounts of energy to meet our everyday energy needs. Rather, we have only been able to harness its destructive force.


    However, there are other, more practical ways to extract energy out of water and what first comes to mind is electrolysis of water. Compared with other ways to produce hydrogen, electrolysis of water is the most effective, safe, and stable way forward.  Water is one of most abundant resource in the world, and (contrary to popular belief) splitting of water into hydrogen and oxygen is the simplest and most straightforward electrochemical process to obtain hydrogen as a primary product. A water molecule consists of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. When it is electrolyzed, it breaks apart. Electrolysis is the passing of an electric current from one electrode to another  through a liquid called an electrolyte. Electrolysis breaks apart molecules of the liquid into positively and negatively charged ions. The positively charged ions are attracted to the negative electrode (cathode), and the negative ions are attracted to the positive electrode (anode).The hydrogen atoms are positively charged, so they are attracted to the cathode. The free oxygen atoms are pulled to the anode. We may say that oxidation occurs at the anode and reduction occurs at the cathode. The technology is well recognized and used daily all around the globe.. Granted, not as much energy is recoverable as in the first case. Nevertheless, even a small percentage of the enormous amount of energy locked in water should prove to be very useful in meeting our everyday energy needs around the globe. The technology exists today and is ready to be used. The technologies in use today need to be modified to achieve the improved efficiencies required for our intended purpose.  Therefore, our new technology is derived by adapting and modifying the old ways and by adding some new elements.  Marrying old and new technologies will enable us to cheaply extract some of the regular hydrogen (and its energy) from water, and to use it as a fuel. The obvious benefits of making hydrogen from water may now be realized.


The Energy Revolution is Here!


   New Revolutionary Energy Technology product of this century – Environmentally friendly non polluting Small ImPS™- (Independent micro Power Station™) and ImHFPU(Independent micro Hydrogen-based Fuel Production Unit™). The two unit system is going to the product development stage and is designed for home or small business. The system will produce electricity, heat and hot water, and it includes a unit producing its own hydrogen-based fuel from WATER on demand!!   Anytime, anywhere, no storage of fuel is necessary. Depending on the individual unit design size, this small unit may produce anywhere from 3 kW and up to 50 kW of electricity per hour, 24-7, and is designed with an in-line option: You may connect up to 10 individual units together for larger power capacity. Its own fuel cost is a fraction of the cost of any of the fossil fuels used today, and any unused electricity produced may be sold to the grid or used to power your future plug-in electric car – allowing you to drive essentially for free. The system can be scaled up or down. Up to 1 Mill. Units per year pilot - model manufacturing facilities are under negotiations with a European country with generous incentives and tax advantages. There are enormous global opportunities. This technology will be ready for mass manufacturing in about 20 months, and it will be able to be manufactured with current manufacturing technologies anywhere in world.

 The first strong objections that you going to hear from many corners are that extracting hydrogen from water by electrolysis is expensive and that it costs more to extract the hydrogen than the energy recovered when you burn the hydrogen. Well, that is not really true in all cases. This statement would be true if we were to use 100% of grid power that is produced by coal burning, for example, with energy recovery of only about 30%. That would be both expensive and polluting. However, with the help of new discovery and using new approach  - you will change completely the energy recovery calculations and discover that statement is no longer true.


     That is where research comes in part of discovering and interpreting data and the development of methods and systems for the advancement of human knowledge on a wide variety of scientific matters concerning our world and the universe. In a real sense, it makes the everyday, practical applications around us possible.


   The term “research” in my case is used to describe my entire work and collection of information about my primary subject of interest: Production of energy from water and how to produce that energy cheaply. This has lead me into in-depth study of many disciplines of science, collecting all available existing knowledge, reviewing hundreds and hundreds of scientific papers, books, and any other information that can even remotely be of consequence. Any information of value would have to be tested experimentally to show what would work and what would not. Most of the relevant experiments have already been carried out by scientists and researchers from around the world, so I only have to reconfirm the relevant results that would support our case if used in our system. At times, we must make improvements and adjustments to better fit the system’s needs. Nevertheless, the research and experiments have been conducted in a meticulous and professional manner, with complete understanding that if successful, the results would be tested and retested many times over by others. Sloppy research and iffy results would be easy to dismiss.


    This research started as one's man hobby to "figure out a better way or better system"; armed with an unsurpassed passion for science, innovation, discovery and deep self study on everything scientific as far back as I can remember; waking up in the morning thinking about how to improve something I happened to use the day before; and going to bed thinking and trying to solve the mysteries of the universe and why the Big Bang never happened or how the Egyptians built the pyramids.

     However the latest project examining how to get energy out of water and how to improve inefficient electrical central production with only (30-35%) efficiency turned into an obsession that has consumed all my time for over nine years. With many questions of “why”, and “how”, this project was begun without desire for or expectation of rewards, but only with the desire to satisfy my own never-ending curiosity and the need to solve problems that affect us all. The initial realization that we are onto something came quite early, and we had to switch from “hobby” mode to a more professional approach. In a private setting with private funding; at the beginning with a real hobby-type approach and spirit; unburdened by any academic politics, egos, or deadlines; with unencumbered freedom to focus my attention and over nine years of effort and will not to quit (at least until all the relevant details and technologies with potential use for the system were exhausted and evaluated in all possible combinations),  I found I really could harness my curiosity in the quest for the scientific truth to its fullest and enjoy every minute of it.


    Therefore, the notion that hydrogen is too expensive to extract with current technologies to be of practical use if it is to be applied on a large global scale may be a correct statement if old technology is used. However, through new and improved technology combined with other older useful technologies, we will improve the efficiency. As a result, quite the opposite becomes true. We have a technology today that when combined into a fully-functional system will produce energy recovery with well over 90% efficiency.

     By itself that is not unusual. There are different technologies that will produce similar efficiencies. However, when you combine the fact that you are producing your own clean, nonpolluting fuel number  of times cheaper than anything available using ordinary tap water on demand, that gives the system a whole new dimension and meaning. Rather than counting the energy losses as in general practice, we count the energy recoveries. With recovery of heat the system is able to produce electricity. Recovery of additional heat is used in heating. Yet more recovery of heat is used for hot water. This is a complete, small, independent, self-sufficient hydrogen-based energy system for the home that will produce the cheapest energy available and will remain competitive with any current system at any time and under any real circumstances.


    The system may be called “Distributed energy” or, perhaps, “micro-power”. These terms would generally refer to a variety of small, self-contained energy sources which are usually located near the final point of energy consumption. Electricity production at or near the point of use can greatly improve efficiency and will reduce the costs and energy losses associated with the central power grid while increasing security, reliability, and self-reliance. In contrast, our traditional energy production and distribution system normally generates power in remotely located, large scale plants and sends the electricity down power lines to consumers over large distances.

Small example: since there is no transmission cost associated with the system, and power is produced on site instead of within the central power grid, this fact alone cuts the production cost almost by 50%. If you are using hydrogen-based fuel produced in your own home, and that Hydrogen-Based Fuel is number of times cheaper than any fossil fuel available, then you do the math and see the result.


      One very important point must be mentioned: these web pages are not meant to prove the concept for the technology because we are way past that point. In fact, our research ended almost two years ago.

We are now in the second and third stages: Developing a production model that will be used in large scale manufacturing, and determining where the product will be manufactured. That third stage is proving to be quite challenging, and is where need your help. Please see more detailed information on the "Partners" page.

      At the present time, we are constructing a corporation that will encompass and stand behind all the commercial activities stemming out of this technology, and that would have the necessary global reach. Please see the Investor page for more information.


    The system design and size must fulfill certain criteria such as being as quiet as possible and being able to produce about 3 kW and up to 50 kW of electrical power 24/7. The design should incorporate an in-line system, meaning that if you have the need and space, you may connect as many as ten units to expand the electricity production capacity, collect as much heat as needed for hot water, and recover as much heat as is required for heating. The 3kW and  up to 50 kW 24/7 is more than plenty of electrical energy for any average or even the largest single family home or small business, and the excess power produced by the homeowner may be sold to the grid. It is estimated that on average the system will pay for itself in less than two years.

     Notwithstanding current efforts by just about every auto manufacturer to produce electric powered cars, the home power system will supply plenty of energy to charge up your electric car for pennies when compared of cost of fuel today. Therefore you may have your own ImPS™ to provide you with all your energy needs in your home, but you will also have what amounts to your own “gas station” to charge your electric car right in your own garage.  

     As in any endeavor, lots of trial and error, plain common sense, and creativity allow use of old technologies in a way that has never been done before. It is that simple, and yes, water is the raw material that will make it happen.

     The proprietary nature of this type of data, particularly as it relates to patents being prepared, detailed information describing the technologies involved, and how it is applied, will for now fall under confidentiality agreements to protect business interests. As a result, we are unable to provide more detailed technical information. We are able, however, to provide some general information to the public on the innovation.


    There is one amusing part to all of this: So-called experts advocating fossil fuels against hydrogen, especially in the view of global warming, environmental concerns, and the dramatic cost increases of fossil fuels. Just for the record, the one of the active and really the only desirable content of the fuel you are burning in your car engine as you drive round is actually the hydrogen itself, if they would only admit it. Hydrogen is the only desirable active component in all of the fuels, including coal, wood etc, rest of the ingredients in the fossil fuels as they may burn, are really just pollutants, that through a product price hidden costs and taxes we have to pay for environmental clean up.

    

    So why are we not using clean Hydrogen fuel in first place? Does the process of utilizing crude oil and billions and billions of dollars spent finding, drilling, transporting, refining, and re-transporting seem simple and inexpensive? Far from it. Is it profitable? Yes. As long we are hooked into their cycle and we must use their product, the oil producers and oil companies are willing to invest huge amounts of money to keep going - that is their business. Would they like to see water as the base material to replace their crude oil base? Absolutely not! They would be unable to make as much money as they do now because water is everywhere and anybody can get it. They would have to rearrange everything they own because there would be much less use for it. On a serious note, however, should we blame them if our capitalistic system has laws that encourage just that? They do exactly what is in the best interest of their shareholders and try to earn as much money as they can. Perhaps we should have a laws that requires the energy companies to invest say 15% of their gross incomes into new energy sources, no questions asked.

Their statements like “hydrogen is not a financially viable solution at the present time, as it cannot be economically produced” is not valid anymore, but perhaps it is still not financially viable for them, since they want us to keep buying and paying more for their product.
