Welcome! - Water and water... there is a lot of water on our small planet-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 needed

Big fundamental question ? - How can we extract some of the enormous amount of energy in form of clean hydrogen fuel out of water economically? We found the answer..

ImPS ™ Independent micro Power Station

    We call our hydrogen-based fuel system ImPS™, or Independent micro Power Station. ImPS™ includes four different and distinct technologies that are combined into a two unit system. The first unit produces a hydrogen-based fuel, and the second unit utilizes the fuel and produces electricity, heat and hot water. All are reasonably priced and can be produced anywhere in the world with existing manufacturing technologies.

     ImPS™ is nevertheless somewhat unique. The advantage of this revolutionary technology is the production of all of one’s own energy and more. This includes being able to produce one’s own fuel cheaply from water on demand, without the need for storage. One can make his or her own energy virtually anywhere. Our residential/small business unit, which is now entering the product development stage, should be the size of a double door refrigerator.  Depending on the individual unit design  size it will resemble any other appliance you may find in a home, producing anywhere from 3 kW and up to 50 kW of electrical energy 24/7. Energy produced from this unit is automatic, cheap, clean, non-polluting, and quiet, and it requires minimum human input. For all practical purposes, it is inexhaustible and environmentally friendly.

    Therefore, the potential to be independent (as the name implies) from fossil fuel producers and their products exists.  We no longer have to be hostages to the fossil fuels that we must use for transportation and in supplying our electrical power, with its ever increasing costs. As we look forward to future energy scenarios, it may be that utility companies will join us and become partners, servicing and managing the overall electricity production plan. After all, the hope is that the utility companies would ultimately be buying or giving you credit for the extra electricity produced. The more electricity that a utility company can buy from individuals, the less they would need to produce in an inefficient way to satisfy demand. The less coal they burn, the less pollution they will make.  Ideally, the ImPS™ and the grid may become complementary, with one helping the other.

     Because the cost of the hydrogen-based fuel from this new technology could be very low, the market that develops may primarily be that of equipment manufacturing and sales, along with whatever maintenance and repair components would be needed. Related industries such as electric generators and electric motors, among others, will also benefit. The technology is scalable, and is subject to individual design – different countries may opt for a much smaller unit design, as the energy requirements of households abroad are smaller than in the United States.

      In addition to the ability to produce inexpensive electricity in excess of household and/or small business needs, it is also envisioned that in the near future, new electric cars operated on rechargeable batteries can be recharged for cents rather than tens of dollars at individual homes by ImPS™. This would yield substantial savings compared to the current cost of transportation using fossil fuels.

    To obtain a much larger range than battery-powered electric vehicles may offer, a fuel-producing unit may be installed and be part of the new generation of vehicles. There are no theoretical limits placed on the range or miles per gallon since one is producing one’s own fuel as one drives. The technology of the ImPS™ is therefore easily adaptable in the transportation industry. In the not-too-distant future, every car may have the ability to produce its own fuel without any need for refueling. You may need to carry a few gallons of water, but the multi- billion dollar hydrogen infrastructures for hydrogen transportation and storage would not be necessary.

Why is it necessary?

      The electrical energy used in our increasingly energy-troubled world is the most expensive form of energy in use today. In electrical production, around 60% of fuel is produced by burning highly-polluting coal. Surprisingly, this process occurs with little more than 30% efficiency. We allow about 70% of this energy (usually in the form of heat) to escape before any of us have a chance to use it. It is literally like throwing money into the wind. How is this possible, in this day and age, full of its super-efficient computers, free-flowing knowledge, and all the self-proclaimed experts in all of the energy fields? And how is it that we constantly pat ourselves on the back and congratulate ourselves as the masters of technological progress - and that as we enter the 21st century, we are unable to figure out how to produce electricity more cleanly and resourcefully?   How is it that we can be so backwards, wasteful, and reckless with the knowledge that we are headed toward environmental calamity?  Are there perhaps some other forces in work? Are we perhaps manipulated to focus our attentions to different issues, or are we (by and large) unaware of the real issues?  There is so much information about energy, the environment, alternatives, etc. that nobody really has the time to sift through it all and distinguish what is valid and useful energy information, and what is useless drivel.  Are there factual details surrounding the energy industry that the general public just doesn’t have any clue about?  It definitely seems that way.

So let us try to enlighten you

     We were searching with a new, fresh approach to find different and better solutions and answers to the questions of energy technologies, efficiency, etc.

     Are there ways to improve the 30% “efficiency” of current inefficient and polluting coal burning processes used in central power production plants?  Would it be better to go in the opposite direction, which is “the individual way”? What would it take? Are there ways to replace coal and fossil fuels used in production of electricity?    Would it be possible to produce our own electricity in our homes at all?  Is there a system we would be able to use? Can we produce our own hydrogen based fuel from water in sufficient quantities, and at a reasonable price? Can we utilize this hydrogen-based fuel to produce enough electricity to supply all our electrical needs? Better yet, can we produce more electricity than we need and sell the overage back to the utility company? Is there an efficient way to recapture and utilize the heat created through the production process that would otherwise be lost, to heat and cool our homes and provide us with all our hot water? Moreover, what if, as a bonus, all this energy production would be more efficient (double or even triple that of current coal and fossil fuel burning central systems) and, therefore, be cheaper and environmentally cleaner than any energy from any fossil  source in use today?

    We have found the answers to these questions, and the answer is categorically “yes” to all of them. 

   When comparing fossil fuels with our hydrogen-based technology, It is important that we compare apples to apples and not rely on the distorted and deceptive apples to oranges presentations commonly used. We must take into consideration all necessary aspects of the production costs of each energy source (including the hidden ones) to make any real sense of the situation and see the greater picture.

    Through our research and development, we have identified four distinct technologies, modified and improved each technological process, and incorporated them into a two-unit system for our intended purpose. We call it a “new” technology, despite the fact that the some individual aspects of the technology are very old.  We have also added some new third-party technologies in a specific co-generation combination designed in a way never before devised. What if, by using our combination of technologies, we can mitigate most of the disparity in both the cost and inefficiency?

     Through this combination, ET CZ a.s. has identified just that: An inexpensive, workable solution that will address all those concerns.   It is a solution that, when examined as individual components, has been in front of us for many years.  This is not an “over unity system” or a free energy claim. Energy derived by our system is not free, it will cost something. The intent is to have a small individual system with efficiency improvement over current central power productions. So far, there is every indication that this new combination could make it by far the cheapest clean fuel obtainable on demand, and consequently cheaper than anything in use today. The fuel may be produced and used at scales from small households to large industrial systems without any storage or delay—anywhere it is needed.  It can be used in a proportionally sized system but may also be used with proper adjustments in many other systems as well.  This, combined with the perfect non-polluting combustion properties, results in the ultimate perfect fuel. It therefore may be an understatement that this fuel, in combination with this system and its ultimate unlimited use, may change the energy industry as we know it.

     This combination, producing a more efficient system, shows the most potential to be developed into a wide variety of viable commercial energy producing product as part of a revolutionary new energy paradigm.  Therefore, as a result of our newly applied technologies, we have focused our attention on the ultimate goal: The development of an affordable commercial product, namely a small independent power station that will be able to produce all one’s energy needs anywhere in the world in a way that is nonpolluting, renewable, cheap, and on demand.

     Because of its broad application, this technology offers global promise with the unparalleled potential of totally restructuring the worldwide energy industry as we know it.
