Back to the Future: Combining Hydrogen Hybrid Technology and Enhancing Solar & Wind

The Dylan Energy SystemThe first time I saw the first prototype of the Dylan Energy system, I thought of old Doc Brown and Back to the Future. Remember them? Doc invented something called the ‘Flux Capacitor.ʼ With the Dylan Energy system and our partners, we are capable of consuming 400 tons daily of municipal solid waste (MSW), commonly referred to as landfills, and producing 576 mW of electricity during a 24-hour period of time. This includes medical/drugs/sharpies; municipal and urban waste; industrial, pesticides and their containers; biomass; animal housing; coal; ashes from incinerators; sewage; galvanic sludge; organic sludge from petrochemical; materials with low radioactivity; used oils; batteries; tires; waste of explosive material; hazardous industrial waste; and plastics (with no restrictions).

Dylan Energy is a hybridization solution, encompassing hydrogen, clean natural gas or other fuel sources to enhance already existing solar and wind projects. The recently passed Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is expected to support development of new hybrid projects throughout the continental US. Hybrids can include microgrids, along with utility-scale solar and wind projects that can be retrofitted with a Dylan Energy complete energy storage package.

Dylan Energy, with the assistance of authorized inspection agencies, Bureau Veritas inspection and insurance companies, will construct steam generation systems to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, an American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standard that regulates the design and construction of boilers and pressure vessels. Using our ASME code certification and working with Bureau Veritas Inspection and insurance companies, we will be able to design and certify our system to any local jurisdictional code. This also enables Dylan Energy working with Bureau Veritas inspection and insurance companies to any international code, such as the European PED, Canadian CRN and others. Thus, most countries can benefit from our energy efficiency with minimal impact on the planet.

Due to the pollution produced to make battery systems, many of our existing energy solutions (excluding the Dylan Energy system) are devastating to our environment and the world’s ecosystem. The current US governmental administration has recently entered into an agreement with the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Zambia to bolster the green energy supply chain, despite the Democratic Republic of Congo-documented issues with child labor. “They dig in absolutely subhuman, gut-wrenching conditions for a dollar a day, feeding cobalt up the supply chain into lithium batteries, phones, tablets, and electric cars.”[1]

Seventy-five percent of all cobalt comes from African countries, whereas the Dylan Energy system is a completely domestic-based package. The Dylan system will eliminate the need for batteries and battery systems, which are costly to maintain and need to be replaced over time. Dylan Energy can be the battery source, per se, with a fraction of clean hydrogen or clean natural gas under California emission standards. The Dylan Energy system, when fully implemented, will reduce fuel consumption up to 80% in its steam generation. With burn consumption low, this will also, in effect, reduce the company’s carbon footprint up to 80%.

One of the challenges with renewable energy is the intermittency of the resource. By combining existing wind or solar projects with a Dylan Energy system, we can firm up the intermittence of the renewable energy and enhance the predictability of energy each hour back to the grid. Depending on the size of the Dylan Energy system, we can also shift the renewable energy to the times of day when loads are highest and provide dependable, clean energy when the grid needs it the most. The Dylan system will also provide for off-grid energy assistance for even the most energy-strapped regions of the country.

During this past summer, Texas abandoned wind turbines due to lack of wind, and solar facilities were shut down due to the Texas heat. Even more recently, dead whales have washed up on the beaches of New Jersey and New York due to the construction of huge, offshore wind farms along the Atlantic Coast. In both instances, with the installation of a Dylan system, the need for disruption to our environment and our ecosystem can be eliminated.

The current power grid is vulnerable to food processing companies, manufacturing companies, data centers, water treatment facilities etc., the daily survival of humankind. The Dylan Energy system, however, can be made portable for disaster-stricken areas and can be electric-magnetic-pulse-proofed to thwart acts of domestic terrorism. Such savings would be passed on to utility companies. (Whether that savings is passed through to consumers is up to the companies and regulators).

The Dylan Energy concept for housing units does not draw attention to the power source (Figure 2), which reduces attacks such as what happened in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 6, 2023, when a man drove his car into a large solar plant facility.[2] Additionally, situations like that in Fresno, Calif., can be avoided. Recently, the mayor of Fresno, city council members, and other elected officials throughout Fresno County met at Fresno City Hall to call out PG&E for their “high rates, and lack of attention” to the central valley.[3]

Remember the day when most cities and towns had their own power source for their own electrical power generation? Then, large power companies came in and offered a cheaper rate than they could produce it for. Now, large power companies have added price increases every year: peak demand charge, electric base rate charge, formula rate charge, purchased-power cost recovery, fuel and purchased-power cost, energy efficiency EECR rider, transmission fees, street-use franchise fees, city taxes, etc. (Figure 3) With the 

Dylan Energy Power Generation System, electricity could be provided for the end user at a much lower cost.
