Solar Wind Energy Tower Receives Patent For Atmospheric Energy Extraction Device

Solar Wind Energy Tower has been awarded an allowance of Patent Application Number 13/098,476, titled "Atmospheric Energy Extraction Devices and Methods", by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The patent covers a structure for producing electricity, specifically a tower capable of adding moisture at the top of the structure to hot-dry air so as to generate a downdraft of wind within the interior of the Tower, vanes coupled to the exterior of the Tower that at least partially define a plurality of elongated pockets at the exterior of the Tower, flaps located within the pockets configured to redirect incident wind downwards, and at least a first wind tunnel configured to receive the redirected wind so as to convert such wind to electricity.

Ronald W. Pickett, President, Chief Executive Officer of SWET, stated, "We are pleased to have received notice that our patent application for the Tower structure design has been allowed, and that a patent will be issued shortly.

The patent application incorporates the entire core Tower structure, including the injection of moisture as a catalyst to generate the downdraft wind, and the additional exterior dual wind capture vanes.

In the future, as we expand our geographic footprint, the dual wind technology will provide us with the ability to construct our power plant in locations with potentially more variable weather conditions, since we can now incorporate the power created by the ambient wind captured along the outer surface of the Tower structure with the power generated internally.

This external wind capture boosts the overall power output. This patent allowance, along with our previously issued patent titled 'Efficient Energy Conversion Devices and Methods', encompasses our overall basic system architecture.

"We intend to continue to protect our technology as we develop enhancements to it. Our business plan has always been to efficiently extract the maximum energy generated by the captured wind, with the least loss of power while compensating for the normal differentials in atmospheric conditions."
