Along with the rise in energy costs comes an assortment of new alternatives to oil. Industrial energy users, investors and entrepreneurs are busy at the daunting task of identifying, separating and implementing those alternatives that offer the greatest near-term potential, according to Consultant Dennis Murray.
Murray formed the consulting group, Go Green Energy LLC as a resource to provide guidance through an alternative energy maze where solutions continue to emerge regularly - some "imaginative but not well thought out," he said, but others that "deserve close scrutiny" by prospective users and funding sources.
"Diverse applications such as small-wind turbines, photovoltaic films, algae-based biofuels, hydro turbines, and countless other leading-edge developments promise real solutions to our power needs in the very near future," Murray said, noting that a number of "very interesting technologies" have already entered, or are about to enter the market.
For example, he said, "Numerous wind turbine developments have started to appear on the market. These are totally new designs, quite unlike the traditional 2-3 blade turbines familiar to most of us." Many of the new wind turbines are vertical designs (VAWT) that are capable of substantial power output in low to modest winds.
"We are aware of more than 50 vertical turbine designs on the market or under development", he said. "Some are capable of near-utility grade power of 50 kilowatts or more in only 15 mph winds. With many wind solutions competing, each must develop its own niche markets quickly before the outcome of the game is determined by competitors.
Go Green Energy (GGE) helps small turbine developers establish their companies, develop their markets, and execute their marketing strategy. GGE also assists in second-round equity financing when required. "Rather than go head-to-head against competition and market incumbents, we help developers find niche opportunities that are overlooked or ignored by the competitors," Murray said.
