ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Clean Wind Energy Tower Inc., announced in a press release the Notice of Allowance of its patent application titled Efficient Energy Conversion Devices & Methods (US Pat. App. No. 13/091,124) by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The patent covers specific aspects of deploying multiple turbines in a wind tunnel coupled to a novel hydraulic system capable of maintaining high efficiency hydraulic to electric conversion under a wide variance of wind speeds. The ultimate goal is to maximize the capture and utilization of all available wind energy in any given wind tunnel, as well as providing a consistency of power output during any deviations in wind speed. The Company considers this patent to be a "Core Patent" providing a significant barrier to entry for any potential competitor.

Ronald W. Pickett, President, Chief Executive Officer of CWET stated, "Our innovative solution of extracting the maximum energy generated by the captured wind, with the least loss of power throughout the transmission cycle from capture to exhaust, produces a much more consistent level of power output while compensating for the normal differentials in atmospheric conditions over any given period, and should coincide with our customers' requirements. The technological concepts and applications claimed and embodied within this patent provide significant benefits toward enhancing the level of efficient power generation, as well as enhancing operational costs.

As designed, the Company anticipates that each Downdraft Tower could generate enough electricity to power up to 1,600,000 homes using the guidelines set forth in the California Statewide Residential Appliance Saturation Study, 2004. As an independent power producer of clean renewable energy, the Company will not be selling power directly to consumers but rather to the grid. As currently designed, the Company anticipates that each Downdraft Tower will be capable of generating 1,100 megawatts per hour of salable electricity to the grid. One megawatt equates to 1,000,000 watts or 1,000 kilowatts of electricity. Currently, avoided costs per kilowatt in California are running approximately $0.11 per kilowatt hour.

Our Company's core objective and focus is to become a provider of clean efficient green energy to the world communities at a reasonable cost without the destructive residuals of fossil fuel, and to help broker the chasm between both, while continuing to generate innovative technological solutions for today and tomorrow's electrical power needs".

Clean Wind Energy Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc, has designed and is preparing to develop, and construct large "Downdraft Towers" that use benevolent, non-toxic natural elements to generate electricity and clean water economically by integrating and synthesizing numerous proven as well as emerging technologies.
