OUR INTEND


Our intention is to build a forerunner model of the Atmospheric Vortex Engine (AVE) within the foreseeable future.

The AVE used the characteristics of tornadic air movements that are converted into a controlled vortex. The AVE will be used for, among other things, generating energy and fighting air pollution.

The AVE in itself - and specifically the phenomenon of vortex within the apparatus - has been thoroughly studied over the years by various scientific institutions around the world. The principles and the nature of the vortex are now very well understood. The knowledge about the vortex is so advanced that the conditions for the creation and maintenance of an artificial vortex can be described in mathematical formulas. The potential of the AVE has been confirmed by means of numerical simulations and computer fluid dynamics (CFD). The operation of the technology has been demonstrated with various test models in different sizes and configurations. The test results were analyzed and numerically interpreted. The computational outcomes led to further improvements as well as increased efficiency.


In the last decade the AVE developed from a conceptual model to a working device with a wide range of applications.


Commercialization of the AVE has not yet taken place.

We believe that the AVE can be of great value in this era of climate change.




PHILOSOPHY BEHIND THE USE OF THE AVE


Worldwide, people and nature experience more unusual weather conditions such extreme heats, colds, drought, rainfall and heat waves. In recent years these events have become more frequent and intense.


Climate change is increasing the average temperature of Earth's atmosphere. The steadily rising temperature results in an intensification and altering of convective dynamics the atmosphere because it can hold more water vapour. The wide range of natural variation for local spot temperatures is shifting towards becoming more warmer with lesser cold-events.


The overall health effects of a changing climate are  overwhelmingly negative.


Climate change affects social and environmental determinants of health – clean air, safe drinking water, sufficient food and secure shelter.



The Need for an Atmospheric Vortex Engine (AVE) : ‘first aid’

The phenomenon of global warming has a very great inertia. Just like an oil tanker, it reacts very slowly to steering movements. It is very difficult to determine the right course, given the enormous amount of interacting and entangled parameters and knowledge gaps that have to be filled up. And last but not least : the international complexity of political, social en economical demands.   


Reducing CO2 will come to late

We as World Green Bridge believe that most environmental measures and environmental legislation are too focused on energy transition and keeping green gasses within bounds, and so on.


Dissipation of excess heat in the atmosphere.

We believe that solutions have to be implemented now to dissipate the excess heat in the atmosphere. Especially in areas, people habitats, cities that suffer from the effects of air pollution, smog, Urban Heat Island  and the Brown Cloud weather phenomenon.    


Opportunities

The upside of AVE is, there is no carbon outflow and it is eco-friendly as it uses only the latent heat stored in the atmosphere for power generation. It facilitates cloud formation, increased precipitation, global cooling and reduction of local surface temperature. It is non-risky and it can utilize the domestic and industrial effluents. Large industrial plants commonly reject heat at temperatures in quantities sufficient to sustain a convective vortex.

HISTORY


The Atmospheric Vortex Engine (AVE), was primarily introduced and patented by Louis M. Michaud, a Canadian Power Plant Engineer. His idea was to harness the characteristics of tornadic warm air movements into a controlled vortex to obtain energy.




CONCLUSION


We believe that solutions such as the Atmospherical Vortex Engine (AVE) have to be implemented now to dissipate the excess heat in the atmosphere. Especially in areas, people habitats, cities that suffer from the effects of air pollution, smog, Urban Heat Island  and the Brown Cloud weather phenomenon.


The upside of AVE that it also can use the latent heat stored in the atmosphere. Also waste heat of industrial plants could be utilized to energize the AVE.


 The AVE  can be used for power generation. And in the process doing so it facilitates cloud formation, increased precipitation, global cooling and reduction of local surface temperature. It is non-risky and it can utilize the domestic and industrial effluents.


The efficiency of a solar vortex engine could be as high as 30% because a vortex can extend to a much greater height than a physical chimney. The  maximum efficiency of the conventional solar chimney power plant is estimated of  1.5% because of chimney height limitations.


The potential and feasibility of the AVE has been confirmed by means of numerical simulations and computer fluid dynamics (CFD). The operation of the technology has been demonstrated with various test models in different sizes and configurations.

   

Our proposed exemplar for a working  Prototype Modular System AVE, when operational, will give the unique possibility for studying convective vortices.

GLOBAL EARTH SOLAR ENERGY BUDGET WITH REGARD TO ENERGY TRANSITION

WORLD ENERGY DEMAND

The demand for energy is increasing non-linear with the growth of the world population.

Nowadays we are trying to make a transition to sustainable clean energy. The atmosphere of the earth contains large amounts of absorbed solar energy that can be utilized for energy production.
