2 Introduction What can the SunAir Cool Power Station do This solar power plant uses solar energy to :generate electricity from the heat of the solar- loaded atmosphereproduce fresh water by condensation.Create cold air suitable for air conditioning or cold storage
3 Benefits of Usage 1Direct conversion of solar thermal energy from the storage medium to air Electricity, fresh water and coolingCan be used to generate electricity, water and/or freshwater, and/or cooling power generation (or in any combination)Freshwater production from condensation with power and cooling production as a WASTE PRODUCT without increasing salt concentration of the seas.
4 Benefits of Usage 2Base load supply capability with more than 7,400 h/aNo other motive power or fuels needed except for the first start up. After wards the individual modules restart after maintenance etc using stored energy or for redundancyNo environmental impact (such as CO2) or other emission, with the exception of minimal operating noise.
5 Benefits of Usage 3All media are produced locally and generate significant savings potential. Possible elimination of transmission lines and upstream supply networks
6 Environmentally Friendly No Environmental impactNo CO2 or any other emissionsMinimal operating noise (no noise pollution)30m x 15m footprint per engine
7 How It WorksThe PV solar panels generate electricity to power the fans to draw in air from the atmosphere and any additional electricity is used in the power station, and stored in batteries and used by you or sold to the grid for income.The air is then cooled to -1C. The heat energy taken out of the air is used to generate electricity which is stored in batteries and used by you or sold to the grid for income.In the cooling process a minimum of 44,000 litres of water is produced which can be used by you or sold for incomeAt night the batteries power the engine to provide continuous operation which are then recharged during the day by the PV solar panels.

13 Engine Production Each SunAirCool engine produces: 1MW of PV electricity per hourA minimum of 44,000 litres of water per hour3,000,000 cubic meters of cold air per hour at -1%
14 About the SunAirCool Power Station Operates 24 hours per dayRequires 450m2 of space per engineCreates an Eco Power Station by using multiple SunAirCool enginesThe cost of each Power Station is €7m, delivered, installed to any safe portWe can provide a management and maintenance contract as well as trainingEach power station requires 3-5 staff to operate
15 SunAirCool Power Station Commercial BenefitsThe SunAirCool Power station allows you to have multiple revenue streams for income generationYou can sell or use the electricity (power your factory, office etc)You can sell or use the water producedYou can use the cold air for air conditioning or as a cold storage facility
16 SunAirCool Power Station Commercial ViabilityYou will also be able to sell electricity back to the grid. Using 1 x SunAirCool engine (1MWh per hour) and assuming you sell at €0.028 per Kwh, and the engine is 96% operational, you will generate €234,836 income per year.With 96% operational and with 44,000 litres of water produced per hour at €0.005 per litres you will generate €1,845,062 income per year.
17 SunAirCool Power Station Return on Investment opportunitiesThere will also be significant revenue opportunities that you will be able to leverage with cold air produced at the plant. This can be in the form of cold storage, savings on air conditioning for factories offices etc.The return on investment is in the region of months just by utilising the revenue from the sale of electricity and water, using the assumptions previously stated (which are very conservative). Utilising the cold air revenue stream could enable you to realise a return on your investment within 12 months.
18 SunAirCool Power Station Potential FundingWe speak with Senior Government officials (Finance Minister, Environmental Minister etc regarding the benefits of free electricity and water generated by the SunAirCool power station.With Government approval, the Finance Minister issues either a Sovereign Bond or Block Funds to finance the project.Either course of action from the Finance Minister will results in the power station for virtually nil cost.
19 SunAirCool Power Station Potential Funding – Sovereign BondThe Sovereign Guarantee is issued from the Central Bank and be on Euroclear, and must be able to issue an MT760The MT760 blocks the sovereign bond for a period of time as per its wordingThe MT760 is returned back to the issuer clean and clear without any lien at the end of the periodWe then get a non-recourse loan against the MT760 for the Sovereign guarantee.The amount of the loan will depend on which country issues the sovereign guarantee and their rating allows the funding of the project
20 SunAirCool Power Station Potential Funding – Blocking of FundsWorks in similar way to the Sovereign guaranteeClient blocks funds for €100m with a Bank in their own CountryWe can then provide a credit line against the blocked fundsWe then raise the non recourse loan against the credit loanThe loan the funds the Humanitarian Project
