Hydropower in a Tower™

The Flooid Tower

Flooid Power comes from combining two things the Earth has in abundance—heat in the air and the gravitational forces inherent in Earth’s mass. Flooid Power uses ambient heat and displacement to generate affordable, continuous electricity for homes and businesses—all within a self-contained, non-polluting unit that pays for itself in 3-5 years, depending upon market served, rate structure, etc.

Flooid Power Systems has designed, patented, built, and tested our revolutionary energy system, which can deliver renewable power anywhere there’s solid ground and air.

The Flooid Tower is designed primarily for microgrids and distributed power applications, in which generation is sited close to the end user, improving demand response and minimizing line loss. Distributed generation systems significantly strengthen traditional power grids, adding redundancy and reliability.

Flooid Power, Building the Future

In November, 2021, Flooid Power Systems successfully tested our short-term, low-cost, low-output pilot FT125. The pilot has confirmed the design and engineering for our first commercial Flooid Power Center, which will sell electricity to a prominent, “full-service,” municipal utility in Massachusetts. Flooid Power Project A, a 5-12MW FT125, is scheduled for completion in Spring, 2023, and will be our first fully operational, grid-connected Flooid Power Center.

Flooid’s Path Forward

FT125, Flooid Power’s 5-12MW distributed energy “workhorse”

Flooid Power Project A, a 5-12MW FT125, is scheduled for completion in Spring, 2023, and will be our first fully operational, grid-connected Flooid Power Center.

Flooid Power's Future is the World's Future

  • FT125 can be built as standalones or clusters for the wide variety of customers and applications. Flooid Power will serve high-volume users directly, and will sell electricity to the grid for residential and business use.
  • Flooid Towers blend in—heavy-duty sheathing customized for the surroundings, can look like brick, modern, or clapboard buildings, farm silo for rural areas, camouflage for military bases, etc.
  • With the ability to build multiple, smaller-scale Flooid Power Centers that can be “hidden in plain sight” near our customers, FPS will focus initially on the lower-cost, lower-output FT125. This “Distributed Grid” model adds redundancy and reliability to electrical service, minimizing cascade grid failures.

Flooid Power Project A will enable FPS to refine the engineering, design, and layout for future projects, minimizing cost and delay as we scale to build the higher-output, higher-cost FT160, FT200, FT300, and FT 400, expected to produce between 250MW-300MW continuously, enough for a mid-size US city.

  • Flooid Power centers have a small footprint and high, continuous ouput, requiring only 4.5 sq-ft/kW or 4,500 sq-ft/MW of installed capacity, comparing favorably with both renewable and fossil-fuel-based power producers.
  • Operational 24/7/365, with redundancy of equipment to ensure power production during maintenance periods and off-duty cycles.

On-site Power in an Urban Setting

With a small footprint and high continuous output, Flooid Power’s future includes providing on-site, distributed power in cities around the world. These reliable, redundant, and renewable microgrids will maximize efficiency while eliminating dips and outages.

Needing only enclosed, vertical space to operate, Flooid Power is a perfect fit for new construction projects. Using only 200 sq/ft per floor up-and-down 12-40 floors of a building (similar to an elevator shaft), Flooid Power provides standalone, continuous electricity for that building and the surrounding community as well. The owner of the “host building” not only saves on energy costs, but also makes revenue by selling power to the local microgrid.

Small Footprint, High Continuous Output

  • Compression-based energy system has no fuel costs, makes no emissions.
  • Flooid Power facilities are compact, comparing favorably with both renewable and fossil-fuel-based power producers.
  • Operational 24/7/365, with redundancy of equipment to ensure power production during maintenance periods and off-duty cycles.
  •  Low cost per MW of installed equipment capacity for the FT125, even less for larger Flooid Towers.
  • A 10-MW FT-125 will produce 240,000 KWH per day, enough for 7,500 average US homes.
