Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc. Announces New Patent Filing

ANNAPOLIS, MD, June 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc.(USOTC:SWET)(the "Company"), the innovator and creator behind the Solar Wind Downdraft Tower structures capable of producing abundant, inexpensive, renewable electricity to meet the world's increasing demand, announced today the filing of another patent application.The features and methods of this patent application significantly enhance one of our previously issued patents, and details the expansion of its hydraulically driven generating system to include Hydraulic-To-Air Compressor Converters (HACC) plus the expansion of the existing hydraulic Accumulator to include compressed air energy storage and conversion back to hydraulic energy.

The system adds several positive aspects to the overall performance of the Arizona Tower project.  The main feature will be the ability to utilize additionally generated energy during peak performance hours to pump the water from ground level to the water injection system at the top of the Tower.  By capturing this additional energy for use during pumping hours, the electricity regularly used to pump the water can be sold into the market resulting in a potential increase in annual sales from 5.2 million megawatt hours to 5.7 million megawatt hours without increasing the original 1750 MW Nameplate Capacity of the plant or adding more generators.

Ron Pickett, CEO, further commented, “We are very excited about this development as it certainly will enhance the overall performance of the Arizona and future Towers.  Energy storage can also allow for a more even distribution of output as well as provide for additional base load capability. The patent application also addresses utilizing these features and methods to potentially improve the performance of traditional wind farm turbines.  The method includes using hydraulic energy to power generating capability located on the ground with utilization of our currently approved patented techniques. Finally, another provision of the patent application potentially improves the financial performance of our initial designs to salvage abandoned tall stacks and chimneys from expensive demolition and retrofit and repurpose them to produce renewable energy, again using our existing patented techniques.”
