OVERVIEW

KiNRG developed and owns the intellectual property to a bold new clean energy technology that will provide an abundant source of ‘green electricity’ to industries, utilities and government entities.
null

Designed by a team of world-class engineering partners, this patented Downdraft Energy Tower is not only revolutionary in design, but also in cost and durability.

null

Compared to traditional solar or wind farms, the Tower is approximately half the cost to construct and will last twice as long – unheard of among renewable energy technologies.

null

The technology operates most efficiently in arid climates.

null

This dual-renewable sourcing can exponentially increase the tower’s energy productivity.

HOW IT WORKS

null

The Downdraft Energy Tower is a hollow cylinder with a water injection system near the top that casts a fine mist across the opening.

null

Measured droplets of water introduced by the injection system are absorbed by the surrounding air which has been heated by the sun.

null

Evaporation cools the air inside the tower relative to the ambient air, creating winds that descend through the cylinder at speeds exceeding 50 mph.

null

The wind is compressed into wind tunnels surrounding the base of the tower, generating windspeeds over 100 mph.

null

A patented energy extraction system inside the wind tunnels generates electricity.

DEMONSTRATION

The demonstration to the right depicts the Tower in operation. The color of the arrows represent the current internal temperature of the air which transitions from hot near the top of the Tower to cold as the air rapidly races towards its base.

POSITIVE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

null

Generates AC and DC power or both

null

Operates 24/7 (Solar collectors and wind turbines only produce when the sun shines or the wind blows)

null

Energy production costs: equal or lower than fossil fuel facilities

GLOBAL ENERGY CALCULATOR

To optimize the siting and potential of Downdraft Energy Towers, KiNRG developed the Global Energy Generation Calculator, a proprietary software-based analytical program that determines energy generation capabilities of the Towers based upon global climate data.

This valuable tool applies meteorological data of a specific area to the Tower’s variables to predict energy outputs on a daily basis. By entering weather data for a potential site into the program, the Tower’s height and diameter can be adjusted, along with the amount of water required as fuel, to create a desired amount of energy. Scientific advancements over the last decade make it possible to assess predictable weather conditions, providing significant enhancements to the tool’s accuracy.

Thus, KiNRG can quickly respond to a request from a country interested in developing a Downdraft Energy Tower to determine optimal Tower location, size and electricity output. KiNRG’s patented technology solution, combined with this analytical tool, offers a unique way to optimize the positioning of its Towers to provide maximum benefit in meeting the world’s energy needs.
