There are a number of players in the energy market, and each receives profit for their services. Gas companies take loans to explore new fields, produce and liquefy gas, and then transport it to customers. Later, stations purchase expensive gas turbines and combust the gas to produce electricity. Next, electricity travels via high-current lines to reducing stations, after which it is transported via local energy companies’ power lines. Finally, consumers are connected to these power lines. This long production chain is the only way the final demand for electricity can be met. The consumer must pay for each link of this chain. In Asia, for example, 1 kW of electricity costs $0.20.
When using SH-boxes designed by NRGLab (http://www.nrglab.asia/), one can avoid this long and expensive chain. One SH-box incorporates several industries, which results in low energy prices. To gain perspective, it is important to know that entities as big as entire countries are involved in this energy chain. There are countries that make revenues exclusively by selling oil and gas. In this chain are also large global companies producing gas turbines and other gas transportation equipment. Banks are a vital part of this chain, and they make astronomical profits on their services.
Customers are the ones who end up paying for all the links in this complex chain. Their expenses reach billions of dollars annually. However, the customer does not need to overpay any longer. SH-boxes are multifunctional and universal; they do not require gas or turbines, terminals or high voltage power lines.
Final electricity demand can be increased without compromising a family budget. Let’s assume an average family in Asia consumes 1.5 kW/h at $0.20, resulting in a monthly electricity bill $200. When using an SH-box, this same family can increase their consumption to 4.5 kW/h and pay $100. They enjoy three times the amount of power for half the customary bill. This way, if final demand grows and intermediate demand falls, the number of participants in the chain is reduced.
In the next five years, the length of the electricity-producing chain will be limited by the volume of final demand. With the launch of SH-boxes, old participants in the chain will see their income share drop. This is exactly the reason our company strives to build business relations with countries and transnational corporations who have been involved in the energy industry and have been receiving stable incomes. We would like jointly to develop a program providing an opportunity for these entities to participate in SH-box production and thus compensate for their future losses. If in the near future we do not hear back from the big players in the old chain, we will work directly with final energy consumers.
Reduction in intermediate demand will lead to profit cuts for several countries and transnational corporations; as intermediate demand is nothing else but relocated final demand. The price of electricity in the final demand stage will drop at least by half. So who will fall out of the intermediate demand chain? Obviously, the big players in the energy market. However, middle size and small companies related to the energy industry will be affected as well. We have created a list of energy saving businesses who will see a change in their operations. These are the businesses dealing with:
1. maximum daylight utilization (increasing window glass transparency, increasing window size, creating additional windows);
2. reflectance maximization, optimal installation of lighting (local and accent lighting);
3. light output maximization (replacement and cleaning of lampshades and chandeliers, usage of more efficient reflectors);
4. incandescent light bulb replacement (energy saving sources, fluorescent light, compact fluorescent light, LED);
5. light control devices usage (motion and acoustic sensors, ambient light sensors, timers, remote controls, etc.);
6. intelligent light control installation (intelligent automated systems, minimization of energy costs for specific locations);
7. energy optimization for heating devices;
8. location optimization for heating devices to decrease time and capacity in operation;
9. increasing heat exchange (including removal of dirt from heating object surfaces, household chemicals’ utilization);
10. local heating devices (portable oil heaters, heat directing reflectors);
11. oil heaters with fans (to speed up heating of living areas);
12. temperature control devices (including the ones with auto “on” and “off” modes, modifying power consumption depending on current temperature, timers, etc.);
13. heating accumulators;
14. replacement of electric heaters with heat pump heaters;
15. replacement of electric heater with gas heaters or connection to centralized heating system;
16. utilization of cookware with wide flat bottom;
17. performance-matched refrigerating units;
18. quality refrigerating unit insulation (walls and doors, transparent covers, etc.);
19. new energy-saving refrigerators;
20. increase in nominal values of conductors (wires and cables), using copper conductors, tracking of unauthorized connection;
21. use of heat-saving materials in building construction and remodeling;
22. installation of heat-saving windows and doors;
23. improving efficiency of heat sources by reducing levels for personal consumption;
24. utilization of modern heat-generating equipment (condensing boilers and heat pumps);
25. utilization of modern units for electricity record keeping;
26. utilization of modern insulating materials;
27. utilization of anti-vandal coating in outdoor heating systems;
28. utilization of recycled energy sources;
29. utilization of local regulating systems for heating objects to avoid melt-downs;
30. changing buildings to zero energy consumption mode (air conditions should be maintained through internal heat generation and superior heat insulation).
This is a list of products and services that won’t be needed in the near future, which will lead to gross income losses for their owners and investors. And the list is not final. When the price of electricity is as low as $0.03, consumers won’t be concerned with energy saving.
