Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to Frequently asked questions related to The Enerotor

Q:How much electricity can the Enerotor produce?
A:This depends on the size itís made. Obviously, the larger the more force and torque is produced. Lengths of 50+ m and diameters of 6+m are envisioned with 50 buckets per row of buckets each capable of catching one ton of water resulting in 50 tons of downward force by gravity per row if all the buckets are filled to capacity. This enormous force can drive very large standard off-the-shelf generators.
 
Q:What drives the Enerotor?
A:Only the sea drives it. Water caught in the buckets uses gravity to rotate the cylinder and its axle which is close-coupled to the generators on either side. No fuels are needed so thereís no raw material cost input. The simple design of the Ďmotorí has no moving parts so thereís no friction, no wear, and no maintenance. The wave power is unending and absolutely free.
 
Q:Why is there no pollution?
A:Since no fuels are used there are no emissions which could pollute. Furthermore, there are no hydraulic motors, pistons or seals etc which could leak oil into the sea. No uranium so no possibility of falloutÖ.
 
Q:Will the electricity be cheaper?
A:The infrastructure is certainly much cheaper than a coal-fired power station or a nuclear power station and since thereís no fuel cost input itís expected that the electricity produced will be much cheaper, even in comparison to wind. It will also be green. Wind generators need to be huge and therefor expensive to generate a lot of electricity. The forces imparted by the air cannot compare with those imparted by the denser heavier water which are also constantly provided while wind dies down periodically.
 
Q:Why hasnít this concept been developed before?
A:Wave Power has lagged other forms of electricity generation for many reasons. Firstly the complicated designs suffered from corrosion and were not competitive. The cost of fossil fuels used to be low and global warming wasnít a pressing issue. Now itís much more important to save the planet and reduce demand for dwindling fossil fuel resources which rise in price dramatically and rapidly and can only continue to do so for the foreseeable future. In very recent years a lot of attention has been focused on the development of devices to generate wave power and the market has provided huge potential and returns on investments in new product design, manufacture and implementation. Entrepreneurs are now realising that wave power is very likely to become the New, New Thing for profitable investments. Prizes, grants and funding are being increasingly provided. Demand is increasing. The Enerotor design is so simple and is expected to be so cost effective comparatively that it is expected to take the lead in this new field of endeavor.
