CLEAN ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES
ARE OVERWHELMING THE GRID
Generating power isn’t the same thing as providing usable power. This problem is occuring around the world – Large
(2-3MW each) wind turbines sit idle in Texas. Gigawatts of solar lies untapped and unutilized on sunny days in India.
Why? The simple answer is; because power management systems are unable to balance the variability of intermittent
renewables like solar and wind, to maintain the necessary frequency and voltage balance. It’s a software problem.
“In the Information Technology sector (IT), if the hardware does not match the software, you end up in a ‘nowhere’ state. A restart will generally bring you back...”
“... In power management, if the hardware does not match the software, you end up in a ‘plasma’ state – a catastrophic and irretrievable conversion of matter... ”
“... which is why Blueflux Power Management Controls guarantee what the system will NOT do vs. what the system can do. This is a defining and fundamental difference.” – Blueflux Team
More specifically, controlling frequency and voltage in the grid requires software and electronics systems, powered
by advanced mathematics. When power equilibrium is lost, due to too much electricity fed into the grid (a problem
exacerbated by intermittent renewables like solar and wind), in relation to the quantity of power consumed, the resulting
imbalance causes grid systems to go off line, which can produce equipment damage, brownouts, and blackouts.
HAVE NOT SOLVED IT
(Aside from the fact that we are exceptionally skilled at advanced math)
They lack the career path or business
incentive to disrupt the status quo.
The decades required to conceive, test and
develop transformational technologies.
They focus on incremental improvement
of current technologies vs pure R&D.
They are unable to effectively combine top
talent across multiple scientific disciplines.
Plus: Scientific groupthink, bad timing, entrenched corporate interests, misplaced public fear,
gaps in available technology, high cost, resource scarcity, personality clashes, lack of financing,
resistance to change, complacency, competitive rivalry, misguided policy, lack of vision…
HOW WE DID IT
Strong academic foundations and the application of
foundational, but little understood principles:
MAXWELL’S EQUATIONS, LORENTZ FORCE EQUATION
THE LAWS OF FARADAY, AMPÈRE, AND GAUSS.
Plus advanced expertise across multiple disciplines:
We fill the gap between conventional power sources, which are generally reliable,
but polluting, and renewables, which try to be green, but can’t overcome their
intermittency (resilience and reliability) problem.
APPROACH TO PROBLEM SOLVING
We are innovators first. Our research and development approach sits at the intersection of the
theoretical, the empirical, and the practical. In our business model we build, own and operate our
equipment – so we engineer and construct it to perform relaibly and last longer. To meet the high
standards we’ve set – we ‘own’ the process, and the key components – all software, electronics and
engineered components are our designs, built and managed by us.

THE WORLD NEEDS MORE THAN
We’ve been believers in alternative energy since before it was popular. For over 30 years we’ve explored innovative
ways to make foundational improvements to power generation, power storage and power management. Today we are
applying our patented and proprietary innovations to some of the world’s toughest power problems.
Centralized Pyramid Structure
Power generated far away from users
and connected to a network of high voltage transmission lines.
Multiple potential failure points creates a
less secure transmission framework.
Requires large tracks of land for generation
facilities and transmissions lines.
In US, 70% of the lines and large power
transformers are more than 25 years old.
Very inefficient and wasteful – only ~10%
of energy generated arrives at end user.
Power generated close to the point of use.
Requires lower capex infrastructure and
Redundant and overlapping systems
provide greater resiliency
Small power generation footprint requires
a substantially smaller amount of land.
Modern microgrids utilize latest
infrastructure methods and materials.
Ability to integrate clean renewable
sources for more green power.
