Dominovas Energy has a global reach, focused on emerging and developing markets to provide reliable, efficient, and clean electricity for uninterrupted power for all families, communities, and surrounding businesses. The RUBICON™ is versatile and designed to encourage the efficient use of natural resources in the production of energy and equally to require accountability for the stewardship of those natural resources.
Lacking access to electricity, communities are often forced to rely on dirty, inefficient coal plants, diesel generators and kerosene lanterns. In many areas of the world, decentralized technologies have enormous potential to bring power to the people, allowing for the deployment of stand-alone systems, resulting in the doing away with the need for expensive grid design and time consuming construction. Moreover, for a rapidly growing urban base, small-scale systems can substantially reduce the economic and environmental cost of electrical products and services.
The acceptance of ‘Climate Change’ and its impact around the globe are forcing many nations to reconsider their energy policies. Concurrently, energy demand is on the rise, because of growing populations. As a result, research, development, and deployment of clean and renewable energy technologies that lead to a significantly reduced dependence on fossil fuels are urgently being sought and sorely needed.
The RUBICON™ fuel cell is an energy technology that can significantly mitigate both air pollution and foreign oil import dependency at current levels. It is quiet, compact, flexible, highly efficient, and exceptionally clean; and it curbs emissions of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. The RUBICON™ is much more efficient than conventional energy processes because it converts the chemical energy of the fuel directly into electricity without going through an intermediate combustion step. The RUBICON™ is cleaner than any carbon fueled combustion process, even when using carbon fuel as its hydrogen source. Additionally, the heat and water produced in the conversion process can be used for space and water heating.
The positive global impact of fuel cell technology is undeniable. With a 10 percent market penetration, carbon dioxide emissions – the major greenhouse gas – would be reduced by over 60 million tons a year.
Global warming is depicted as the increase in the average temperature of the Earth’s near surface and ocean’s air. The greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide trap heat in the Earth’s atmosphere and, thus, result in increasing the temperature of the Earth. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states that anthropogenic greenhouse gases are responsible for most of the observed temperature increases since the middle of the twentieth century.
The RUBICON™ fuel cell’s byproducts are heat and water, with significantly reduced emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) over current industry standards. The ultimate integer in emission levels is the fuel source. Based on measured data, a RUBICON™ Based on measured data, a RUBICON™ “DEPS” creates 30% less CO2 emissions than the conventional combustion generating systems for the same kW-h of electricity production.
A major source of carbon dioxide emissions are power plants. Power plants emit inordinate amounts of carbon dioxide as a direct result of burning fossil fuels for the purpose of electricity generation. Coal is the major fuel that is burned in these power plants.
The “DEPS” can greatly reduce costly investment in new power plants. It also facilitates more local control over power use, contributing to economic development within the community and reducing the reliance on and inefficiency of “distant” power producing plants.
The environmental benefit is one of the greatest advantages of the “DEPS.” Modern micro-power systems will leave a lighter ecological footprint than currently deployed predominantly fossil fuel-based networks that host a myriad of environmentally damaging emissions. Candidly, Dominovas Energy realizes it takes vastly different skills and resources to successfully execute the principal strategies for the implementation of the “DEPS.” The operational approach doggedly focuses on conventional measures like capacity utilization, throughput, and customer service. The traditional strategies, by contrast, require decisions must be made in concert with the current leadership, and done so in a manner that considers the necessary investment in technology and the configuration of any resultant new business system. Most monopoly utilities perceive downsized systems as a threat to their core business of generating and distributing power. Nevertheless, communities stand at the threshold of a brave new reality and must avoid the temptation to “lock-in” dirtier, less efficient, less reliable, and more expensive Old Century combustion power generation technologies. Through Dominovas Energy and its RUBICON™ companies, nations, and communities have an excellent opportunity to “get it right” and to secure their economic and energy capacity for future generations.
