Here are the answers

Will electricity become cheaper with Energy Towers?2022-03-21T12:18:04+01:00

Electricity will become cheaper. The green electricity from Energy Towers is cheaper than the grey electricity currently produced without subsidies.

Why Energy Towers when there are wind turbines?2022-03-21T12:05:24+01:00

A year has 8,760 hours. Wind turbines produce on average about 2,500 hours of electricity per year, after all it is not always windy. Moreover, they have to be built in exposed locations where meteorologically sufficient wind has been proven. These places are always visible from a distance.

Energy Towers are wind-independent, they can be built where the electricity is needed and they produce more than 8,000 hours of electricity per year, i.e. three to four times longer than a wind turbine.

What would a world look like in which Energy Towers was implemented?2022-03-31T17:22:25+02:00

Climate-neutral electric power, always available, decentralised – can be used almost anywhere in the world, in all required quantities, without danger to people or the environment, affordable. We are able to say goodbye to fossil backup solutions. Likewise, the re-emerging discussion about the further use of nuclear energy becomes superfluous. But also for other parts of the world, where many people still have no access to electricity at all, this technology means a turning point towards better living conditions. In Sub-Saharan Africa alone, there are about 860 million people who have no access to electricity. Our world would be fairer and further hardships could be significantly improved through access to electricity, not only because we can produce climate neutrally around the clock, but also because this technology can be used decentrally almost everywhere and is affordable. After all, access to energy is a prerequisite for prosperity and better living conditions. Healthy economies can emerge, agricultural productivity increases due to possibilities for further processing and cooling, schools and hospitals can be operated, jobs can be created, and causes of escape are avoided at the point of their emergence, as they primarily arise from poverty and a lack of prospects. Dependencies on gas and oil suppliers would dwindle and competition is not dependent on a few players. We are writing the next chapter of energy production!

What is the lifespan of the Energy Towers?2022-03-21T12:12:30+01:00

The lifetime of EnergyTowers is many decades. Maintenance of Energy Towers is easy because standard parts and existing production techniques are used. This means that operational reliability is very high. Energy Towers are monitored so that potential problems can be reported and rectified immediately.

What is the current importance of Energy Towers?2022-03-31T17:22:08+02:00

Climate change and its consequences are forcing us to rethink in many areas. The need to avoid CO2 brought about the socially necessary and politically taken decision to phase out fossil fuels as quickly as possible. Combined with the phase-out of nuclear energy, this creates a problem that seems almost insoluble. Renewable energies such as wind power and photovoltaics are volatile because they depend on meteorological influences (in this case wind speeds and solar intensity) and thus do not have the base load capacity that is absolutely necessary for a secure energy supply. Storage technologies in the required capacities have not yet been developed, or are linked to geographical conditions, such as pumped storage plants. In order to be able to supply an economy with climate-neutral energy in a fail-safe manner, a form of energy production is needed that is capable of generating energy continuously 24/7 throughout the year, regardless of meteorological or other external conditions. We have solved this problem. Our goal is to ensure precisely this energy supply.

What can I compare Energy Towers with?2022-03-21T11:47:44+01:00

Energy Towers come in several versions. 1 MWh is the smallest unit, 3 MWh is comparable to wind turbines located along motorways. 5 MW per hour are the largest and at full load are almost equivalent to the largest wind turbines along the coast.

How much power is 1MW per hour?2022-03-21T12:04:36+01:00

1MWh is 1,000KW per hour. An average 4-person household uses about 4,200 kW per year. Energy Towers produces electricity over 8,000 hours a year. So Energy Towers, with a capacity of 1 MW, provides 8,000,000 (million) KW per year. That is about 2,000 households supplied with electricity.

Are there environmental factors and effects on nature?2022-03-21T12:05:40+01:00

Energy Towers are quiet and do not disturb humans or animals. EnergyTowers also have a smaller impact on the natural environment than wind energy and photovoltaics. EnergyTowers also pose no hazards whatsoever, as the plants are built without materials that pollute the environment. In this respect, there are no problems with disposal issues, as with the dismantling of wind turbines or photovoltaics.
