Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc. (OTCBB: CWET, the “Company”) provides an update on a previously filed patent application that is of significant importance to the Company. Last year, Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc. announced that the Company had filed with the United States Patent & Trademark Office “A Petition to Make Special under the Accelerated Examination Program” a patent application titled Atmospheric Energy Extraction Devices and Methods. This application covered the addition of specific external design components, physical structure and systems that both substantially enhance structural integrity of the Tower and captures wind directly striking the external vertical surfaces of the Downdraft Tower from any direction, beyond those winds already induced into the internal tube of the tower, substantially increasing total power generation of a single unit.
The application covers, including other claims, the appropriately shaping of the external walls of the Tower so that the wind blowing upon the Tower may be captured and directed to conversion tunnels at the base of the Tower where the wind turbines may convert the mechanical wind energy to electrical energy.
Ronald W. Pickett, Chairman and CEO, stated, ” After the filing of an amendment, we are still actively pursuing the prosecution of this patent application under the “Accelerated Examination Program”, and through the continual evaluation of our site specific analytical data believe it to be extremely beneficial to our program. We believe that the opportunity to harness incidental winds that would blow upon the vertical surfaces of the Tower would provide substantial benefit to overall production in situations that warrant.
On July 23, 2012, we announced the publishing of our initial core patent titled “Efficient Energy Conversion Devices and Methods (U.S. Patent No. 8,120,191), and we will continue to develop, evaluate and submit other patent applications as readied to enhance the value of our technology.”
