|Drought mitigation application
strain GSE servers:
After the release of drought mitigation methods on the GSE website traffic quickly built to levels exceeding the companies internet capacity. The servers crashed when downloads exceed the 10mb limit for over 1 hour.
Most demand originated from drought stricken middle eastern countries including Egypt, India, Libya, Tunisia, and other countries of the Maghreb. The simultaneous translations recorded by Google Analytics, show that the article "drought causes and solutions, or why it doesn't rain in Saudi Arabia", was translated into 7 languages.
GSE announces breakthrough in S-series Heat Pump for high temperature zones.
GSE engineers released preliminary test data on a new class of fluid pumps and compressors that are powered by ambient temperatures. The device known internally as a LHDP [Latent Heat Displacement Pump] can provide significant static pressure using only latent atmospheric heat. GSE engineers say that the device, which is aimed at small farmers in areas with high average temperatures (28+ C), can be scaled to pump 100+ gallons per day from sources buried as deep as 150 meters. At production levels the units will be priced at under $500.
|Native Energy officials visit
Officials from New Jersey based venture capital group spend the afternoon at GSE's Virginia offices. Extensive discussions about possible early stage funding were described as hopeful.
GSE, which is largely funded internally by the founders, is seeking just short of 20 million. Native Energy officials, were among several venture capital groups expressing interest in GSE, that were present at the NYU future energy presentations where GSE director of applied R&D participated in a Shark Tank modeled 3 minute round robin presentation.
Native Energy has established a significant reputation in the energy sector with energy projects located all around the US. They have often been involved in purchasing carbon credits from alternative energy providers.
GSE products targeted at privately controlled roadways and airports were the primary topics of discussion during the 5 hour meeting.
academics investigate traffic driven AWG prospects
Internationally recognized water supply expert, Professor Al-Salaymeh of the University of Jordan opened a dialogue with GSE engineers. Jordan is interested in a funded demonstration project for regional drought and possibly air pollution mitigation.
Due to the high regional heat and humidity GSE engineers are drawing up plans to employ traffic drive AWG (atmospheric water generation) technology. We feel that the intense regional heat will push cloud formation zones to unproductive levels, so TDVT (traffic driven vortex towers) will be ineffective, However, large scale AWG (10,000 gallons per day units) when combined with drip irrigation methods can build a low albedo riparian zone around existing roadways, using the tremendous regional humidity. These riparian zones can grow over a decade to contain salt marshes, and will eventually bring regional temperatures under control. Once average temperatures have been moderated, TDVT units could provide sufficient cloud formation to convert much of the formerly arid region into a temperate area with a balanced hydrology.
|GSE : Drought causes and TDVT
Drought represents an imbalance in regional hydrology, or an inadequate regional water cycle. In some areas drought has been accepted as the natural state of the region. The term desert generally represent this historical view. A desert is generally defined as a region which receives inadequate precipitation to support significant or expected plant growth.
However, due to forces that we do not adequately understand traditionally arid regions are spreading, and traditionally moist regions are becoming semiarid and tending toward becoming arid.
GSE devices for factory rebate program
GSE is in negotiation with Xcel energy to have our products include in their compressed air demand side management program. Xcel's DSM campaign is a rebate program that reduces factory owners utility costs, both grid and natural gas, if they will invest in programs that will provide greater efficiency in the use and generation of compressed air. GSE proposes that plant owners install our R-series compressors as embedded units in the company parking lot. GSE R-series units, for most 2-3 shift plant, provide enough high density energy to compress sufficient air to operate pneumatic and fluid cooling operations.
Compressed air and fluid pumping represents and average of 20% of all factory power usage. Compressed air is used extensively in the operation of assembly lines and processing systems. While fluid movement is essential for waste heat removal and climate controls. Many factories supply tight JIT (just in time) customers, and are adversely impacted during peak load restrictions due to seasonal or environmental retail customer demands.
|GSE bids on Tappan zee bridge
GSE is working with a major bidder on the reconstruction of the New York state rebuilding of the famous Tappan zee bridge. GSE proposes that our R-series units be embedded into the roadway surface to circulate geo-thermally normalized fluids. These fluids, brackish water is one likely candidate fluid, would maintain the roadway surface within a range of temperatures close to the below the frost level temperature which does not fluctuate during winter or summer. The benefits are both de-icing and de-heating all driven by the flows of traffic. Winter de-icing will make the bridge safer, while summer de-heating will reduce heat stress damage. Heat stress damage is a major factor in both roadway and bridge design, and accounts for a significant percentage of long term maintenance costs.
The inclusion of thermal normalization systems can reduce overall bridge construction costs as well.
|GSE moves toward small cap
GSE has begun negotiation with the small cap network for possible listing on the penny stock exchanges. SCN officials are interested in early stage energy companies like GSE. The trend in the small cap field has recently been dominated by some of the recent petroleum speculators. This interest has been fed by a series of articles in business magazines like Fortune and Forbes which feed the confirmation bias of energy investors against alternative energy companies.
Stories about the bankruptcies among alternative energy companies, noisy bird killing wind turbines, and expensive and unreliable solar installations have scared money away from alternative energy stocks.
GSE represents a fresh approach to alternative energy, especially the type of base energy that municipal and industrial applications demand. GSE is helping to redefine the energy market, with dense reliable energy that actually makes new exciting applications possible. The market for dense environmental energy could increase the market of alternative energy more than 1000 fold. Applications like drought and air pollution mitigation are simply not feasible with traditional fuel sources.
|Sales build in on the edges of
GSE reports new sales inquires from Dubai and Addis Ababa during the April 2012. These regions are both suffering from extended droughts, and have major highways with sufficient traffic to consider traffic driven environmental solutions.
Solar energy wholesalers in Ethiopia are seeking to stock a complete line of GSE pumps and compressors in response to governmental inquires for alternative energy systems. GSE pumps are well suited to these rough environments due to their construction from high density recycled tires. GSE proposes building fabrication plants in key regional locations to make use of local feedstocks.
Developing economies will find that beyond large scale environmental projects, GSE fluid pumps will help them to solve local water distribution challenges.
|GSE calculates $1.6 billion per day as energy
cost to end Texas drought
Researchers at GSE have calculated that using air tankers, like those used in fighting forest fires could end the Texas drought over a period of a few months. But no one is appealing to the state legislature to fund such an effort because of the tremendous cost. GSE researchers estimate that the fuel costs alone to cover 15% of the state of Texas with 1 cubic inch of water would cost 1.6 billion dollars a day.
GSE did the research for a report "drought causes and solutions" which details the companies long range drought mitigation program for the Texas region. The GSE program which is estimated to cost 1.2 billion over a 10 year period will combine desalination, long distance water transport, and TDVT (traffic driven vortex towers) which are similar to power station cooling towers, to generate a more balanced regional hydrology. The GSE approach uses the tremendous traffic flows of Texas highways as the primary energy source.
