Our Business Model
Information collected from Brillouin first round of experiments demonstrated that the proprietary electronic pulse generator produced excess heat when applied to nickel and to palladium. Excess heat is the amount of thermal energy that exceeds the energy used to drive the pulse generator and its associated electronics. Second round experiments conducted in a high temperature and high-pressure test cell confirm that excess heat is produced on demand in repeatable amounts. Presently the company pulse generator is being studied and tested at SRI, International in Menlo Park California.
The Brillouin revenue model is fee based. The plan centers on a strategy of global licensing and royalties. Qualified manufacturing firms would pay annual license fees and a percentage of sales on products using the technology. Markets will be addressed by segment:
- Geographical Region
- Application: hot water, steam heat, process heat
- End User: residential, commercial, industrial
- Thermal Output: Lowest Power to 600 Watts, Low Power 600 to 1 Kilowatt, Mid Power 1 Kilowatt to 500 Kilowatts, High Power Over 500 Kilowatts.
The US commercial boiler market is $1.1 billion and growing. The business model addresses the market by providing economic and environmentally sustainable solutions. The technology provides heat on demand with out emissions and avoids other costs associated with fossil fuels. Brillouin's value proposition eliminates need for fuel purchases.
Brillouin has entered into its first international licensing agreement covering three nations and is involved in on-going negotiations for other potential international partners.
