However, these percentages would be higher if it were not for the efforts of current clean technology companies and their efforts to reduce energy consumption through green techniques.
One developing business, Energy Compression Inc., is utilizing basic physics to tackle the complex issues of sustainability. Through the development of Absorption Enhanced Compressed Air Energy Storage ( AE-CAES), a process where energy is utilized through air absorbed by a porous material called zeolite . A thermal/mechanical energy storage unit, the system has the potential to lower energy costs of homes and buildings. Part of the system’s efficiency lies in its ability to serve as both a battery and storage system which can be applied to anything from wind turbines to refrigeration systems. AE-CAES is also not explosive and made from completely green materials.
“Together with the fact that all the materials utilized are environmentally benigns AE-CAES is ideal for distributed energy storage, we are on the customer’s side of the electricity meter,” said David Lash and Tim Havel, the founders of the company.
