Multiplier Microgrid: Air-to-Electrical Energy & Air-to-Water Harvester

"The Power of Air both energizing and hydrating the entire World." 

About Us


Unique Value Proposition

Manipulating the storable high-density power of air, Monkeytech International LLC provides onsite utility service of energy and water through the leasing, licensing, and implementation of our IP, which is  a scalable, renewable-based, off-grid multiplier technology, specifically energy generator and storage microgrid technologies that can convert surrounding resources like air into storable high density pressure. The onsite pressure works with generators to harvest energy even in covered locations and anywhere in the world so long as air is accessible. As a low cost CHP alternative, storing air allows for the conversion of air into stored pressure and condensation to occur, where water molecules in the air collects in the tank, enabling the system to double as an onsite water harvester.   

The dream of no longer relying on central power, blackouts, attacks on fuel supply runs, harmful emissions, and high utility costs is here since our patent-pending, Air-to-Electricity & Water Microgrid allows access to 24/7 uninterruptible, hurricane-proof water & power for scalable applications.  Let us provide you metered access to cheap, uninterruptible, individualized power and water needs using our affordable alternative to limited, hurricane-prone, centralized combustible power. 

With our metered microgrid technology, we give you access to your own personal high density energy and water harvesting technology. The storable, high-density Power of 24/7-accessible Air can both energize and hydrate your entire World.


Multiple Applications

The cogeneration multiplier microgrid works with existing renewables to 1) generate high density energy onsite, 2) store electricity, 3) store pressure resource for later use, and 4) harvest water molecules for drinking purposes. It uses pressurized ambient gas that is a 24/7-accessible natural resource that is hurricane-proof. The pressure conversion unit uses only $.05 per kWh when it periodically activates to collect moisture in the air, even in arid regions, when in Air-to-Water Mode, as it stores thermal energy as pressure. This pressure can be repeatedly recycled to conserve power drawn from the pressure conversion unit when set to Air-to-Electricity Mode, which will allow for increased energy efficiency (close to 90%) of high-frequency electrical generation. 

In other words, the system can manipulate the energy and hydrating power of air to be implemented to power homes and other applications, including handheld power in impoverished countries or Military campaigns (70W 140Wh), small residential power (1kW 2kWh), moderate home power or onboard electric vehicle power (5kW 10kWh), large residential power (10kW 20kWh), or regional power (100MW+) to provide onsite access to onsite water and grid-free high density energy, both day and night, whenever or wherever you need it, regardless of landscape, hurricane-prone areas or other weather conditions. 


Company Goals & Strategy

Our for-profit organization, MONKEYTECH INTERNATIONAL LLC, will raise money from private investors, for which we can give equity or dividends to shareholders. A return on investment is expected as we provide onsite utility services through the sale of energy and water. We can lease models in order  focuses on providing off-grid, personalized utility services. Leasing and/or licensing agreements can be established for onsite or offsite installations.  We have already formulated strategic partnerships with New York University Tandon School of Engineering as our R&D partner and plan to establish a strategic partnership with not only The State of New York but also with global utility organizations in order to refine, manufacture and scale our model to size to capitalize on the sales of onsite energy and water. Our goal is to enhance the community. The Age of Unreliable Power Reliance can end soon for 1.2 billion global citizens that still live in the dark across the globe. We would like your help to raise the capital that is needed to achieve our mission that includes:

1) combating the effects of climate change by further research,        developing and implementing our Air-to-Electricity off-grid energy and water harvesting microgrid technology, 

 2) purchasing and/or renovating low income houses to adopt our 0-emission microgrid, and 

     3) educating on energy savings, we decided to establish a nonprofit arm. 

  The for-profit can license the intellectual property to raise money from venture capitalists — though our first screening criteria would be investors who were aligned with our social mission. We will seek after federal SBIR/STTR grants set aside for for-profits only. And, importantly, we will set up the sales and distribution infrastructure through partnerships with utility companies and distributors to lease the product to those who could afford to pay for it at current retail price, while still focusing on bottom of the pyramid markets.

How Our Pressure Conversion Microgrid Solution Works

      A combined heat and power (CHP) system, our portable air to electricity mobile microgrid relates to the fields of electrical generation, transference and storage. The multiplier energy system generates and stores excess energy derived from 2 electrical energy sources - renewables and storable thermal energy-based electrical generation - to produce and store energy as compressed heat. Stored compressed heat is then redirected to generators to produce excess electricity. This excess electricity is stored in a second electrical storage. Compared to existing combustible CHP systems, our cogeneration microgrid:  

1.  converts and stores airborne water molecules at 66% efficency, 

2. converts and stores 24/7-accessible surrounding energies onsite, rather than paying supply costs to ship them in,  

3. stores 24/7-accessible compressed ambient gas, or air as storable heat, for anytime use, 

4. generates and stores excess cogenerative energies, where a secondary electrical production avenue is accessible for excess electricity around 90% efficiency, 

5. operates on an abundant resource that is 0-emissioned and combustible-free, 

6. utilizes batteries to prevent intermittent periods and,  

7. utilizes a series of high frequency reciprocating generators to produce excess high energy density onsite rather than conventional combustible turbines that are heavy, require massive amounts of energy per rotation, and rely on excess limited combustible resources to operate.


Storable Thermal Energy: Safe, Renewable Alternative to Combustibles

         Besides combustible as thermal energy, there is another type of thermal energy process that is storable: Air as stored heat or pressure. Air is a surrounding resource that can be drawn into an enclosed setting and converted into storable, high density pressure. This adiabatic process is 0-emission and accessible onsite. Air compressors are known examples of the adiabatic process, which is one where an adiabatic storage system does away with the intercooling during the compression process, and simply allows the gas to heat up during compression, and likewise to cool down during expansion. This is attractive, since the energy losses associated with the heat transfer are avoided, but the downside is that the storage vessel must be insulated against heat loss. It should also be mentioned that real compressors and turbines are not isentropic, but instead have an isentropic efficiency of around 85%, with the result that round-trip storage efficiency for adiabatic systems is also considerably less than perfect. Air, as stored heat or pressure, is the only cheap or ultra cost-efficient resource that is constantly available or accessible 24/7, day or night. Although accessible, solar and wind are also limited resources regulated by regional discrepancies, consistent changes in weather conditions or time of day. When collaborating with renewables, air as a storable, surrounding resource allows for indefinite onsite access of high density force-applicative resources even in covered locations, negates dependency on limited feed lines that limited onsite resources like hydro, steam, fossil fuels or natural gas systems offer, and permits multiple applications.



Why Combustible Energy Is A Serious Problem

      Currently, combustible energy is costly, as existing utility companies charge exorbitant rates, limited in one shape or form and non-renewable. Energy is the lifeblood of our society. Unfortunately, we live in a combustible energy world, where our society runs off combustion, from our cars to generating electricity. Combustion runs on costly, toxic, limited resources like fossil fuels and natural gas. This current energy scenario that is based on combustible is increasing climate change, destroying our environment, and working against the Paris Climate Change Convention.

Combustible energy utilize chemically-explosive fuels or reactants to generate electricity. In this day and age, many issues surround the way energy is generated and distributed. First and foremost, current energy generation relies on non-renewable combustible fuels – such as oil, coal and natural gas – that are both unsustainable and detrimental to the environment. Additionally, the companies that provide energy to the people are overcharging due to the vital role electricity plays in modern society. Finally, the infrastructure associated with energy generation and transportation is limited in reserves, costly, prone to failure resulting in blackouts, emits harmful emissions on an irreversible level, is overstretched due to centralized powering which is very susceptible to increasing hurricane damages that frequently leave thousands without power, and susceptible to attacks in areas experiencing conflict, violence, corruption and extremely high poverty levels. Of the 1.2 billion world citizens who live in the dark, around 550 million live in Africa. due to lack of funding for costly combustible energy systems that would require a serious infrastructure revamp.  Only 42% of its citizens have access to electricity according to the African Development Bank; In Sub-Saharan Africa, access to electricity is even lower, at 30 percent overall and 14 percent in rural areas. This lack of light has ripple effects across many other areas: Children do not get a quality education because they are unable to study at night, and modern health care facilities become inaccessible.
