eBook Pioneer to Demonstrate Renewable Energy System
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — In 1985, Norbert Stein applied for a United States patent for a “Hand-Held Electronic Book Device For Reading.” Stein developed the eBook in Santa Clara with Bertelsmann, and later sold his interest to the international book publisher. The eBook is a major contribution to the electronics world.
Kinetic Highway – Now Stein has, patent pending, a new revolutionary device – Kineto.
Kineto is showing a model of its Renewable Power system Tuesday, February 1, 2011 at Marriott Santa Clara (2700 Mission College Blvd, Santa Clara, CA) from 11 am to 2 pm in the Sequoia Room.
The University of California/Davis is evaluating Kineto’s Renewable Power systems and methods which generate electricity by the action of motor vehicles moving over Kineto devices embedded in declining grade surfaces of roads and highways.
The devices are activated by the movement of vehicle tires/wheels causing spindles to create a rotational motion in a turbine-free electricity generator. The generator(s) can be in place or offset. The Kineto devices can be single or manifold in-line on roads and highways.
According to Stein, Chairman of Kineto Power Generation, “The generated electricity will be connected to the power grid. In addition, Kineto can be used to power nearby lighting systems, even electric and hybrid vehicles. “
The transmission of electricity reflects 50% of the cost to utility companies. Kineto transmission costs are zero (0).
Stein says, “There are over 200,000,000 passenger cars, buses, taxis and trucks crossing over arterials, collectors, roads and streets in metropolitan areas where power needs are greatest. Kineto systems and methods expects to exploit the movement of these vehicles to create renewable electricity to sell to utilities at competitive prices.”
