According to a recent company press release, International Automated Systems, Inc. (IAS) and Renewable Energy Development Corporation (REDCO), have announced that REDCO will be working with IAS to purchase IAS’s solar panels and new bladeless turbine for utility-scale solar projects.

After completing its due diligence of the IAS technology that included a thorough analysis of the independent engineering review of IAS’s new solar panels and turbine, REDCO has concluded that the IAS technology is commercially viable.

The third party engineering review was conducted by engineers with Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in physics, mechanical engineering and nuclear engineering from universities such as M.I.T., U.C. Berkley, U.C. Davis, and DePaul.

“Collectively, these scientists have many years of accumulated specialized expertise in optical engineering and efficiency, thermal dynamics, combustion stability, liquid rocket engine performance, system optimization, mechanical and fluid systems analysis, solid and gel propellant performance, structural dynamics, rotating machinery and vibration with application to turbine blade rubbing,” the release states. “This review supports that the IAS’s bladeless turbine and solar panels meet and in some cases exceed all performance and efficiency projections. Perhaps the most telling outcome of this independent engineering review was the conclusion that the IAS bladeless steam turbine can operate as a part of an overall closed loop system or as a stand-alone component.”

The composite analysis also supports that compared to other solar technologies the IAS technology has a higher overall annual efficiency factor than photovoltaic (PV), traditional concentrated solar power (CSP) such as towers and troughs, and is better or comparable to CSP dish technology. The net conclusion is that based on the functionality and the low-cost design, an IAS solar thermal power plant needs to convert only 5% of the gross annual solar energy hitting its panels to electricity in order to compete with the lowest priced solar technology available today. An IAS solar thermal power plant has an annual solar-to-electric efficiency of nearly 24%, the company says.

Ryan Davies, President & CEO of REDCO added, “I am excited to work with IAS and we anticipate building many solar power plants using their technology. After careful analysis of their technology and of the independent reviews conducted verifying their projections, I believe that the IAS technology is unique, revolutionary and ready for commercial application. I believe that the IAS turbine combined with their solar panels and heat exchanger will produce reliable solar energy at a fraction of the cost of traditional solar.”

Competing Head-to-Head with Fossil Fuels

According to their web site, IAS’ s new solar technology is the first to offer the possibility of competing head-to-head with fossil fuels for both electricity and gasoline production. It costs less now than the World Government’s goal for solar power cost per kilowatt by the year 2020. IAS’s unique thin-film lens focuses the sun’s energy, producing super-heated steam for power generation. IAS’s panels are inexpensive, efficient, and require virtually no maintenance. Typical solar reflector panels ( e.g. solar dishes, troughs, heliostats) are very expensive and require a great deal of maintenance to sustain a solar focal point. Once installed, IAS’s lenses need no further adjustment. Other solar technologies, such as photovoltaic (PV) panels, are also very expensive and require an expensive inverter to convert DC power to AC. They also require expensive batteries for power storage. Unlike PV systems, IAS’s product does not need an expensive inverter or battery storage. It operates on heat and produces heat as a byproduct. This energy can be stored using a chemical regeneration process held in a continuous cycle. This chemical, in turn, is then used to create steam when there is no sun. This unique added process costs significantly less than batteries; so much so, that it offers a reasonable answer to 24/7 solar power.

IAS’s unique thin-film solar lens can be produced at a fraction of the cost of today’s traditional photovoltaic solar panels. IAUS believes its new product is the first solar power technology with legitimate potential to compete with gas and other fossil fuels in the immediate future. Low-cost energy produced by IAS’s new patented and patent-pending solar technology can be used to generate electricity or produce clean fuels such as hydrogen and green methanol (gasoline replacements) at a competitive price. IAS plans to quickly expand its annual solar panel production capacity this year to 1 Gigawatt, which is enough to supply an estimated $2 Billion in sales per year.
