Energy Innovator Awards 2019

28 Corporate Vision - Energy Innovator Awards 2019 , Once constructed, the MHRS facility can be adapted as a location for deep sea fisheries production or aquaculture. Algae production that could be created and used for conversion into bio-fuels. Excess energy generated on the platform during off peak hours can be utilized to produce hydrogen gas for use in fuel cells or the power can be linked locally to enable mining of the sea floor. Ongoing research has shown that the energy which is escaping from all the world’s currently known hydrothermal vents exceeds the total current global electricity energy consumption. If this MHRS renewable energy system were to be implemented, it would surely prove to be a game-changing discovery that would help to mitigate the world’s current energy and environmental crisis. Discovered in 1977 and located at an average depth of approximately 2,300 meters (7,500 ft.), scientists have previously been stumped as to how to create a system that could fully utilise the energy they know is escaping at the bottom of the ocean. Until now. Until MHRS. The hallmark of the MHRS innovation is that rather than seeking to work with the energy at the bottom of the ocean where people must use clumsy, inefficient, and expensive robotics to function, MHRS directs the heat of these hydrothermal vents upwards through a continuous riser pipe that leads to an energy platform located above the vent. Thermal extraction, conversion, As global attention continues to be focused on how renewable energy sources can be used to replace more fossil fuel in order to combat climate change, one American firm is tapping into a resource that has never before been touched. Rather than take the popular view of it being an impossible task, Marshall Hydrothermal is spearheading the charge tomake utility-scale sub- sea geothermal energy available to humankind. Marshall Hydrothermal U.S. LLC: Most Innovative Sustainable Energy Technology Company 2019 & Leading Experts in Sub-Sea Geothermal Energy 2019 With the switch away from fossil fuels and toward renewable technologies such as solar, wind, geothermal, and hydroelectricity becoming recognized globally as a survival-level necessity, the search for new renewable sources is exploding and will only continue to grow as new populations are provided for and existing systems are replaced. More renewable sources must be sought out and used to their fullest potential, even those that seemed impossible only a few years ago. Enter Marshall Hydrothermal, an innovative technology company seeking to harness a vast and never before tapped energy source. Deep beneath the surface of the ocean lie hydrothermal vents; seafloor fissures through which geothermally-heated water constantly flows. Hydrothermal vents are found where tectonic plates are separating from each other, creating cracks in the crust. Extreme pressure of depth forces water through those cracks where it is heated by the magma and returns as a continuous geyser of superheated fluid. The water that explodes upwards is rich in minerals and energy, and, if properly harnessed, can be converted into a gigawatt scale renewable energy source. That’s what the Marshall Hydrothermal Recovery System (MHRS) does. It generates base load renewable energy from water that has been superheated by the Earth’s core through natural geothermal processes. Oct19232 The MHRS process is the world’s first patented system designed to capture the intense thermal energy of these hydrothermal vents and use it for electricity production. This design can also be used as the world’s first practical deep-ocean mining system, and has the further potential of becoming the most energy-efficient water desalination system ever invented because no external energy is used to heat the water which is eventually distilled. While three highly valuable commodities can be extracted from one infrastructure, it doesn’t end there.
