What is Gravity Drive?

An electro-mechanical system incorporating a series of falling and rising masses where drop time, distance, velocity and retraction speed are designed and optimized to produce a net positive energy.

Independently Verified Technology

A respected Colorado engineering firm performed physics modeling of the Gravity Drive.
What did they determine using real world inputs and worst case assumptions for friction loss?

“The system outputs more power than it consumes.” AND “System Efficiency is >50%”

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the driving goals of GDI?

Humanitarianism and environmental stewardship. The driving goals of GDI are humanitarian and environmental. We believe that clean renewable energy is the key to truly helping others and providing a safer future for humanity. Once successful, the focus of GDI as an entity will be to identify those in need of help and establishing ways in which to meet those needs. The gravity drive will afford those most in need access to power, heating and air conditioning, transportation, clean drinking water, food and employment. We want to make a real and sustainable difference in the world for good and the Gravity Drive will provide us that opportunity.

Summary: GDI technology successfully bridges the gaps between humanitarian needs, environmental stewardship and a strong economy.

Where can the Gravity Drive be located?

Anywhere needed, in virtually any environment. The Gravity Drive is engineered to be located right at the load (point of use), where it proves most efficient. It is not limited by environment, weather or geographic location and can safely be installed anywhere it is needed. The best part is its extremely small footprint and the fact that it is scalable and can be networked for redundancy.

What about power storage limitations such as wind or solar?

Power storage is not required or limited. Because the Gravity Drive is a continuous power source, is scalable and can be networked for redundancy, it does not require any energy storage. In isolated and remote locations, two or more Gravity Drives could be installed so that maintenance can be performed without interruption when required. Some system designs would even allow you to perform maintenance while the Gravity Drive was in operation at a lower level of power generation.

Will the Gravity Drive be affordable?

Yes. We expect the Gravity Drive to be more affordable than all other energy solutions.

Why has this not been envisioned earlier?

Flash of original perspective. Most inventions are improvements on existing ideas or the combinations of multiple technologies or concepts to create a benefit. In the case of the Gravity Drive, it required a person to take a fresh and original look at the problem in a completely sound and revolutionary way that had not been previously considered. Sometimes, and in this case especially, the solution was always there…hidden in plain view.

Does the Gravity Drive come in different sizes?

Yes. GDI intends on offering units of different output capabilities to meet the needs of the average user all the way up to heavy industrial applications.

Can the Gravity Drive generate income?

Yes, depending upon the application. The standard system will generate more power than the average end user will need, allowing for the immediate sale of that excess energy back to the grid.

Is this just another perpetual motion machine idea?

Far from it. Perpetual motion machines fail to overcome the Newtonian laws of gravity in that they always consume more energy than they produce due to friction loss and other inherent inefficiencies. The Gravity Drive operates on a completely different principle altogether.

Does the Gravity Drive leave a carbon footprint?

The Gravity Drive has a near-zero carbon footprint. The Gravity Drive requires absolutely no fuel to operate and produces no emissions or byproducts. It has a zero carbon footprint during operation since its energy source is the Earth’s gravity. At the end of its service life, an extremely high percentage of the Gravity Drive will be recyclable resulting in a very small carbon footprint.

Is this technology safe?

Absolutely. Nothing could be safer than the Gravity Drive. It does not require hazardous materials or precious metals to manufacture. It also does not require the exploration, extraction, transportation or refinement of natural resources with all the associated environmental hazards to power it. Also, at the end of its service life, an extremely high percentage of the Gravity Drive will be recyclable.

Is the Gravity Drive cost effective compared to other energy solutions?

The Gravity Drive is the most cost effective solution per kw. The gravity drive is the most cost effective energy solution as no fuel is required that has to be extracted, there are no waste products or environmental hazards to contend with and it is located at the load (point of use) where it is most efficient. From a cost per kw and an environmental impact perspective, there simply are no competitive solutions close to what this technology offers and achieves.

Is the Gravity Drive system only for stand-alone usage or can it be networked?

Both. The Gravity Drive system can be used as an independent power source or it can be networked into the power grid. For larger scale needs, such as a skyscrapers or light industrial applications, the Gravity Drive can scale multiple units in parallel to achieve the level of power required. Additional units may be networked or integrated as future needs may require.

The Benefits of Gravity Power

  • A zero carbon footprint with an absolutely minimal environmental impact
  • Does not consume precious metals and is 100% renewable

  • It is scalable, more efficient than the competition and generates revenue for the consumer
  • Can be safely built anywhere and does not deface the environment

  • No fuel needs to be explored for, extracted, transported or refined
  • Power is generated at the Load eliminating the cost of infrastructure and line loss

  • Localized to defend against terrorist attacks and natural disasters such as tornados and space weather

The POD*

The Gravity Drive POD masses are dropped in sequence to generate electrical power at an optimized and constant rate. Secondly, Part of the generated power is used to return the masses to their origin positions through a gear reduction drive. The sequencing and the gear reduction results in an efficiency of 50% or greater.
