The new millennium opens the next chapter in world energy use, featuring global consumer demands for more power, less pollution and affordable energy-related products.
In the projections of the
International Energy Outlook 2001, world energy consumption is projected to increase by 59 percent over a 21-year forecast horizon, from 1999 to 2020. Additionally, world oil prices have been extremely volatile for
the past 3 years.
The proposed Affordable Clean Efficient Reciprocating Internal Combustion Hybrid Engine (ACE RICH) that can use renewable and less expensive energy sources is more efficient and affordable
than other power plants currently available on the market for various areas of use.
