Aggressively Pursuing Energy Independence
With Clean, Sustainable Energy Solutions
• We view ourselves as a hybrid solar/wind technology company,
reflected in our name, Solar Wind Energy.
• The simplicity of our solution is comprised of harnessing the
natural power of a downdraft created when water is
introduced as a catalyst to hot dry air heated by the solar rays
of the sun within the confines of our Solar Wind Downdraft
• The Downdraft Tower is a hollow cylinder with a
water injection system near the top.
• Pumps deliver water to the Tower’s injection system
where a fine mist is cast across the entire opening.
• The water introduced by the injection system
evaporates and is absorbed by the hot dry air which
has been heated by the solar rays of the sun.
• The air becomes cooler, denser and heavier than the
outside warmer air and falls through the cylinder at
speeds up to and in excess of 50 mph and is diverted
into wind tunnels surrounding the base of the Tower.
• Turbines inside the wind tunnels power generators to
Technology - How the Solar Wind Energy Tower Works
• Generates clean, cost effective and
efficient electrical power.
• Avoids the adverse damaging effects of fossil
and nuclear fuels and other know alternative
• Operates 24/7 and can outperform solar
collectors that produce only when the sun
shines in the daytime and wind turbines that
produce only when the wind blows.
• Virtually no carbon footprint, fuel
consumption or waste production.
• Uses benevolent non-toxic natural elements
to generate electricity.
Solar Wind Energy Tower
Global Energy Generation Calculator
The Company has developed a software based analytical program to
determine the energy generation capabilities of its Solar Wind Downdraft
Towers based on the climate in geographic locations around the world.
• This essential tool applies “known” scientific meteorology data to pin-point
specific weather conditions of a specific area to the Solar Wind Downdraft Tower’s
variables in order to determine and project energy outputs on a daily basis.
• Solar Wind Energy can now rapidly respond to a request from virtually any country
reasonably suitable to host a project and determine specifically where the Solar
Wind Downdraft Tower should be located, the size of the Tower and the amount of
electricity it can produce.
• This analytical tool, combined with our proprietary operating systems technology
and existing core patents, clearly provides the Company with a unique opportunity
to allow global positioning of this alternative solution to the world’s energy
World Wide Production of Abundant, Clean, Affordable Energy
• SWET can now evaluate potential Energy Tower sites around the world and calculate
and predict the shape and size of the Tower and the amount of electricity that can be
produced in any region.
• Design specifications for the first Downdraft Tower Project output capacity on an
hourly basis, up to 1,250 megawatt hours, gross.
• Multiple Towers can be deployed in “Compounds” using the same cranes, water source,
delivery, manufacturing and construction systems and labor forces.
• Height of the first Tower in Arizona has been set at 2,250 feet by utilizing Energy
Generation software to calculate and predict energy production.
• The Towers are constructed in concrete which is readily available around the globe and
the internal working parts are all virtually “off the shelf” equipment.
• Cost of electricity from the Downdraft Energy Tower is approximately 1/3 of traditional
alternative energy sources.
• Tower life expectancy 50 years
Some of the best consultants in the world have been and continue to support SWET's
efforts to bring this first Downdraft Tower to market for example:
Whiting-Turner Contracting Company - A large major national contractor and construction management
organization to assist us in project planning, advanced value engineering and budget and project scheduling.
Commonwealth Dynamics - A major international contractor specializing in the design and construction of tall
reinforced concrete structures, will be prime sub-contractor for the tower structure.
Kroll Cranes S/A of Denmark - Has worked closely for over two years to create a tower crane system and
equipment elevator lift system that would guarantee the construction of the Tower in a timely/predictable
Lead Consultants from Renowned Meteorological and Engineering Schools – Have researched and developed th
programs and algorithms needed to accurately measure the predictable wind speeds and internal pressures
created within the Tower structure and the predictable power produced.
Milwaukee School of Engineering – Development of the mechanical operating systems for the hydraulic power
transmission systems and the water injection system
Holland & Knight LLC –International law firm has guided the company and advised on energy policy as well as
political policy since inception.
The Company has filed several patent applications with the U.S. Patent Office to
protect its technology including:
• “Efficient Energy Conversion Devices & Methods”- Patent # 8,120,191 ISSUED
Improved Wind Energy Power Transmission System - To more effectively transmit energy
via a multi-stage variable hydraulic drive system that operates efficiently through a
broad range of wind & turbine speeds, and the use of multiple trailing turbines within a
• “Atmospheric Energy Extraction Devices & Methods”- Patent Allowance ISSUED
Incorporates the entire core Tower Structure, including the injection of moisture as a
catalyst to generate the downdraft wind, and the additional exterior dual wind capture
• The Company has filed other Patent Applications that are pending
Business Model - Project Partnering
The Company’s business plan involves “partnering” with various entities
such as utilities, sovereign nations and independent power sources, to
provide the ability to bring this solution to the market as rapidly as possible.
• Each Solar Wind Downdraft Tower is its own independent project. Solar
Wind Energy’s involvement in each project is to facilitate the Tower’s
development with its expertise and intellectual property.
• Solar Wind Energy will receive development fees, licensing fees, and
royalties on power sales from each project and/or ownership interests.
Economic Benefits of the Tower
Economic Growth During Tower Construction Phase
Since the Downdraft Towers will be constructed using conventional materials,
equipment and techniques, associated industries will benefit significantly by the
creation of the Tower (Towers).
Major Employment Opportunities
• Thousand of construction, transportation, and manufacturing jobs.
Ongoing Economic Stability
• 700 permanent jobs per Tower, skilled and professional
