Proton Power to Present Clean Energy System at the University of Tennessee's Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy

The event will be held at 1 p.m. (EST), Monday, May 5 at the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy, Toyota Auditorium.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – [April 14, 2014] – Proton Power, Inc. (PPI), the developer of a patented renewable energy system that produces inexpensive hydrogen on demand from biomass and waste sources and converts it into synthetic fuels and electricity, announced today that it will present its clean energy technology to the public for the first time at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.


The event will be held at 1 p.m. (EST), Monday, May 5 at the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy, Toyota Auditorium. Proton Power co-founder, Dr. Sam C. Weaver will lead the event. The event is free and open to the public. Public parking is available at the Vol Hall Garage and information and directions can be found at http://bakercenter.utk.edu/about-us/directions-and-parking/.

The Baker Center provides a forum to discuss developments that advance alternative energy sources and improve the environment – one of its three areas of focus.

"We are grateful to the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for giving us the opportunity to present our work," said Dr. Sam Weaver, co-founder of Proton Power, Inc. "Our primary goal in bringing this important technology to the market is to make renewable energy more affordable and to contribute our part to the world's sustainable energy future. This is another important step towards that commitment."

Founded in 2005, Proton Power's core technology, referred to as Cellulose to Hydrogen Power (CHyP), is all about hydrogen – using biomass to make inexpensive hydrogen, which is then converted to sustainable energy. It is ideal for clean energy applications such as distributed or central-station electrical power generation, hydrogen production, or producing synthetic fuels such as renewable gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel. Proton Power's energy solutions are both environmentally friendly and economically competitive with fossil fuels and provide many measurable advantages over standard energy options available today. Synthetic fuels produced by the CHyP system are derived from non-food feedstocks and can be blended or used as a drop-in replacement for petroleum fuels – within the existing transportation fuel infrastructure.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
