We are involved in a not-for-profit project to develop a system for clean, location independent and renewable electrical power generation that can be built from common materials.
The system design of the project is being managed in a not-for-profit and open manner and applies the same methodologies and principles that have made Linux and other Open Source Software projects such a success.
The information is presented here: http://www.energytower.org
We have some initial electrical and thermal output calculations of the system for various locations here:
I believe that this project will create an implementable, economical, reliable and serviceable system. Although the entire project is being managed in a not-for-profit manner, the intent is to work with business.
The detailed design, manufacture of the sub-assemblies, construction, system operation and integration with existing operations and waste heat sources can have large economic benefits for the entire economy.
