The generation of profits will come from producing and selling power units in key markets to eliminate the expensive and time-consuming transportation of large components from abroad. A combination of pre-assembled components and those kept in inventory will be used alongside rapid additive manufacturing to meet the goal of installing and commissioning a plant within one year.
By 2050, there is a need for approximately 300 quadrillion BTUs ("quads") of new energy. This would raise global energy consumption to a total of 911 quads. To meet this demand, an estimated $50 trillion in investments will be required for energy generation. Although carbon-based energy is expected to lose 11% of its market share during this time, it will still make up the majority of the energy mix at 69%. This means that around 125 quads of new carbon-based energy will be generated, resulting in an additional 3.6 billion tonnes of CO2 emissions per year by 2050.
We will primarily focus on intercepting new natural gas, coal, and diesel generating capacity in the 1 GWe and greater range, as well as replacing decommissioned plants for heat and electricity in emerging markets. This market represents the largest and fastest-growing region in the world for energy consumption, with a projected 70% increase from 2018 to 2050. Moreover, it encompasses the development of new baseload power plants that average between 820 MWe (natural gas) and 1100 MWe (nuclear).
