Greenhouse heating using existing oil wells

Greenhouses, fish farms and grain drying industries utilize several 1000's GJ of natural gas per year, making heating one of the top operating expenses. With introduction of carbon tax this expense is further increased. We propose utilizing the geothermal potential of suspended oil wells for direct heating purposes. 

Our simple thought is, "When the need is heat, why not use heat directly". Alberta has over 6,000 suspended... more »

Rhea the Recycling home energy appliance and priority control

Intro

Rhea is our Recycling Home Energy Appliance. Rhea is also the Greek Goddess of everything that flows. A very appropriate name when you consider that everything that can flow, flows through Rhea. Due to its invention, we were able to develop an entirely new and novel building system we call Rhea Building Logic or ReBeL for short. It's very fitting that Rhea, the mother of the Gods, is perhaps the original Rebel,... more »

GEM, C-ZER, RAZOR, & TEMPERING

GEM: GAS EXHAUST MITIGATION

Houses that use natural gas produce CO₂ and lots of it. The weeping pipe is installed on all new homes at a cost of around $50 a linear meter. The bulk of the cost comes from requiring the rock-slinger truck that provides the gravel. The pipe we all use is cheap, usually made from 100% recycled plastic, and often comes with a nylon sock that further prevents dirt from entering the pipe. This... more »

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells in Landfills: Creating Energy from Waste

The Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) utilizes electrochemistry to breakdown methane gas, a GHG, to produce energy. SOFC technology has been tested and utilized at dead well sites in Alberta. The SOFC is fed exhaust gas, and removes the methane to charge a battery. Our proposal is to apply this promising technology to new applications here in the city of Calgary to not only reduce emissions, but also create novel energy from... more »
