Wave Energy Conversion Technology


Integrated Power Technology Corporation™ Renewable Energy Portfolio, U.S. Patent 6,956,300, Gimbal-Mounted Hydroelectric Turbine   The Gimbal-Mounted Hydroelectric Turbine represents Integrated Power Technology Corporation™ 's foray into renewable energy technology. One can recognize the evolution of research and development with this patented Wave Energy Conversion Technology along with the Transverse Hydroelectric Generator manifest in the Turbofoil®.



Integrated Power Technology Corporation™ Renewable Energy Portfolio, U.S. Patent 7,088,012, Transverse Hydroelectric Generator   The December 2005 Report to Congress, (ESECS EE-3060), Solar and Wind Technologies for Hydrogen Production, page17, Table 2.3b Wind Energy R&D Focus Areas, in the Emerging Markets focus area, four months after the Integrated Power Technology Corporation™ applied for the Turbofoil® patent, the DOE predicts: “…Although wind turbines have not been optimized to produce hydrogen, wind turbines and electrolyzers could be collocated, sharing controllers and power conditioning systems. Additionally, the turbine could be designed to operate at power levels that match the load demands of the electrolyzer…” Note that the Integrated Power Technology Corporation™ also applied for the U.S. Patent 7,088,012 entitled Transverse Hydroelectric Generator, in December 2004, a year before this DOE Report to Congress. Claim 1 of this patent clearly applies the concept of the turbine operating at power levels that match load demands of the electrolyzer, in this instance for a wave energy converter, thus rendering the concept to wind turbines non-novel, obvious in view of U.S. Patent 7,088,012.
