Revolutionary Bluerise technology: energy from ocean

Revolutionary Bluerise technology: energy from ocean

Let’s give this guys support and donate

Bluerise has developed new technology to produce energy from the ocean in the tropics.

This can provide renewable energy to large areas.

And where wind and solar power always depend on whether the sun is shining or the wind is blowing, Bluerise will soon produce clean energy day and night.

Crowdfunding

Bluerise is ready for commercial roll-out and through crowdfunding everyone can now invest. The day after the public launch, the first goal of €250.000 was reached and together with 400 investors Bluerise has also reached its second goal of €500.000. To increase the impact and the growth of Bluerise as a company, the campaign remains open for overfunding up to €750.000. This will enable Bluerise to further grow its team and speed up the preparations for the first two projects in the Caribbean.

Breakthrough in renewable energy

The ocean covers 70% of our planet. It is the world’s biggest natural solar collector. In the tropics, the surface water has a temperature of 25 to 30 degrees while at 1000 meters depth the temperature is between 4 and 6 degrees. This temperature difference is a giant source of sustainable energy. Bluerise uses this energy to produce renewable electricity and cooling.

In the tropics, more than a billion people live close to the coast and over half of the energy is used for air-conditioning. These air-conditioners use expensive and unsustainable electricity, causing large CO2 emissions. Using the cold water from the deep ocean, buildings can be cooled sustainably and at a much lower cost. The temperature difference between the warm water at the surface and cold deep water will be used to generate electricity, day and night. Unlike solar and wind energy, ocean energy is always available and does not need to be supplemented with polluting energy sources at times when the sun is not shining or the wind is not blowing.

Robert Wright, CEO of New Leaf Power, partner of Bluerise in Jamaica: “Bluerise offers a clean and cheaper alternative by pumping seawater from the deep ocean to cool our hotels in Jamaica. This is 10 times more efficient, saving up to 90% of the energy. In the end, that is what our customers want, they want cheaper power, cheaper cooling that is clean and green.”

Get Involved

Bluerise chose to raise the necessary financing through crowdfunding with Symbid. Within one day, the target amount of €250,000 was reached, enough to make the step up to the realization of the first project. Also the next goal of €500.000, in order to realize a second project and accelerate the roll-out, was reached soon after together with 400 investors. The campaign continues and the new target amount is €750.000. It will enable Bluerise to further grow its team and speed up the preparations for the first two projects in the Caribbean.

Remi Blokker, CEO of Bluerise: “We like to offer people the opportunity to invest in this energy revolution, and we see that there is a lot of interest in becoming part of our mission.”
