Glenn Beane is a well-known inventor with 34 Patents/Patent Pending inventions in the areas of Renewable Energy, Manufacturing Technology, and Materials.  Glenn Beane has been featured in articles in TIME (Invention of the Year) and FORTUNE Magazines, and licenses technology worldwide.

For the past five years Glenn Beane has been focused on creating energy related technology and has developed a revolutionary invention, known as GWAVE™, that for the first time in the history of renewable energy converts low-density natural resources, wind and water, into high power density energy comparable to the power density of fossil fuels.  GWAVE™ has been validated by Alion Science and Technology, a world leader in delivering technical expertise and operational support to the Department of Defense, civilian governmental agencies, and commercial customers:

“As a result, this study has successfully demonstrated and validated Mr. Beane’s concept to adequately harness the available power contained within the ocean to produce a power dense, renewable, non-polluting energy free of any carbon emissions.  With simulated power generation levels already approaching 1.5 megawatts over a relatively small footprint during this proof-of-concept study, continued investigations and further model tests could, conceivably, result in levels of 2 megawatts or higher.  To provide a perspective, the World’s Energy Total, which includes oil, coal, nuclear, hydro, etc., is approximately 15,000 gigawatts.  This entire amount of energy could be generated by Mr. Beane’s invention in an area roughly 40 miles long by 40 miles wide, comprising only .000012th of the ocean’s surface.”

“Alion Science and Technology has successfully modeled Mr. Beane’s invention using industry-accepted computer simulation software and has provided test results to indicated that the concept is a valid concept to produce renewable, carbon free, non-polluting energy with a high power density.  With simulated power generation levels of well above one megawatt being produced over an area of ocean less than a tenth on an acre in size, this concept has the potential to provide energy to the world unlike any source currently available.” 

This project is entering the commercialization phase, and Glenn Beane is assembling a team of private and public partners to build and deploy multiple GWAVE™ demonstration projects and follow-on GWAVE™ infrastructures throughout the world.
