KHGT, Here we go with some more news out on this one. I think we should have a great trading day on this news. This company is fairly new and some focus is starting to come to this one. Keep your eyes on this one.
FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla., June 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kalahari Greentech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:KHGT - News) released a statement today discussing its high-tech Solar Collector in detail.
Wind and solar are fast becoming the leading sources of renewable energy. Kalahari Greentech designs, produces and provides wind turbines, solar collectors and other sustainable energy technologies. Worldwide wind power generation exceeded 200 billion kilowatthours in 2008, which is equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of over 18 million average households in the United States. Wind generation increased by about 25% from 2007 to 2008, and has more than tripled since 2003. This growth is mostly due to capacity increases in the United States, China, India, and Western Europe (Source: http://www.eia.doe.gov).
According to the U.S. Department of Energy's news release dated March 25, 2009, entitled, "Solar Energy Grew at a Record Pace in 2008," solar energy deployment increased at a record pace in the United States and throughout the world in 2008. On March 19, 2009 the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) released its "2008 U.S. Solar Industry Year in Review," which found that U.S. solar energy capacity increased by 17% the past year, reaching the equivalent of 8,775 megawatts (MW). The SEIA report also notes that the United States installed 342 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) electric power, 139 thermal megawatts (MWTh) of solar water heating, 762 MWTh of pool heating, and 21 MWTh of solar space heating and cooling in 2008. (Source: http://www.energy.gov/).
Kalahari's Solar Collector addresses the matters of collector and system efficiency to build a single cost-effective unit. To do this, the collector operates three functions simultaneously to enhance system performance. Hence, it has been labeled as a "Tri-Brid" system. Without all three functions being performed from a single integrated system, the solar collector would not be economically viable. However, since the three functions do take place together, Kalahari's combination Thermal-Voltaic Solar Collector proves to be a cost-effective unit.
Here we go with another great Press release from KHGT, This new company has been doing a great job keeping us informed about their future and what alternitive energy means the future. Imo this company is going to have a bright future. I think this ius a good time to take a position in this one. Do your dd. You can start with this news..
FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla., June 23, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kalahari Greentech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:KHGT - News) released a statement today that wind power is expected to continue to grow worldwide, in part due to favorable government policies. The U.S. Department of Energy has announced a goal of obtaining 6% of U.S. energy from wind by 2020. This goal is consistent with the current nationwide growth rate of wind power. (Source: http://www.awea.org/).
From 1990 -- 2002, wind has been the fastest-growing power source worldwide on a percentage basis, with an annual average growth rate exceeding 30%. An average U.S. household uses about 10,655 kilowatt-hours of electricity each year. One megawatt of wind energy can generate 2.4 to more than 3 million kilowatt-hours per year. (Source: http://www.awea.org/).
The 2009 World Wind Energy Report issued by the World Wind Energy Association illustrated impressive growth rates in the wind sector in 2009, despite the global financial crisis. The report states, "Increasing awareness of the economic, social and environmental benefits of wind energy will further boost investment in new wind farms." (Source: http://www.wwindea.org/).
According to a BTM Consult report posted on RenewableEnergyWorld.com, 2008 saw the highest ever level of wind turbine installations. The growth rate was 42% compared with 2007. The report's forecast also noted that the expected average annual growth rate expected through 2013 is 15.7% per year. More than 200 GW of new wind power capacity could emerge before the end of 2013 (Source: http://www.renewableenergyworld.com/).
Wind and solar are fast becoming the leading sources of renewable energy. Kalahari Greentech designs, produces and provides wind turbines, solar collectors and other sustainable energy technologies. Nearly $2 billion in money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has been spent on wind power, funding the creation of enough new wind farms to power 2.4 million homes over the past year. (Source: http://www.abcnews.com/).
Kalahari's Wind Generator concentrates wind energy in a manner such that it can generate electric power at speeds usually too slow for conventional wind generators to produce any meaningful energy, or to even operate. It can also be modified to operate in water. For instance, it can be utilized in streams, rivers and tidal basins.
Many wind generators on the market today are a hazard to birds and other wildlife. Kalahari's Wind Generator avoids the bird strike problem because each unit comes standard with a shield that blocks birds from being hit by the turbine blades. The screen is sufficiently fine, such that not even a hummingbird can get through. The unit also releases short-range ultra-sonic waves that deter insects from nesting within the apparatus.
KHGT news this morning. Some nice Gains on this one. Keep your eyes on this one!!
BALTIMORE, Aug. 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kalahari Greentech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:KHGT - News) announced today that Matthew Tyson has accepted the position of Director of Product Development and Distribution.
Kalahari is building a production team around the leadership of Mr. Tyson. Mr. Tyson is actively engaging various engineers, universities, and corporations to efficiently create a power generation system based on Kalahari's Solar Collector. His engineering and electronics background allows Kalahari to incorporate modern power generation and control systems in its projects. Focused on creating a portable solar power generator, Mr. Tyson will use his previous manufacturing experience in the sensor and security fields to make the Solar Tri-Brid safe, efficient, and economical.
Mr. Tyson is a graduate of the University of North Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. He served as an Electronics Designer for Tetracam, Inc. based in Gainesville, Florida. While there, he designed a series of electronic products such as a digital camera system, a packet radio system, a standalone digital video capture system and electro-optical sensor devices, to name a few.
Prior to his position at Tetracam, Mr. Tyson worked as a Design / Production Engineer for View Systems, Inc., where he successfully deployed new magnetometer designs for security applications. He has also spent time with the University of North Florida Physics department designing electronics and hardware for the Rapid Response Sensor Networking for Multiple Applications (RRSNMA) project.
Mr. Tyson brings a wealth of experience and plans to lead the effort in using the research done by Kalahari to create new products. With his background in product development, Kalahari will be able to rapidly produce power generation devices based on years of research done throughout the U.S. His major thrust after development will be to distribute to government related agencies nationally such as FEMA and Army Corps.
