April 14, 2014 — Appollo Member and Friend update.

Apollo Members and Friends,

I wanted to give an update on the current events taking place and the progress at Appollo Wind Technologies. We have been continuing to work on a number of items. Continuing our research and development of the isothermal compressor, broaden our intellectual property, building on our strategic partnerships including manufacturers and working on a clear go to market path to generate revenue.

We have spoken to a number of manufacturers about the best course to pursue in building a production model of our units. There are a number of factors to take into consideration when taking on this endeavor. While cost is certainly an important consideration it is equally important to consider manufacturability and reliability. We need to find the best way to build our units, make them as efficient as possible at a reasonable cost. The company we have advanced farthest with is Flextronics. They are a $25b contract manufacturer. We have NDAs in place and are in the process of supplying the necessary information so that they can analyze and let us know the cost per unit on a scalable level as well as provide a timetable that we would be able to expect units from them. There is no permanent agreement in place at this time and we are still continuing to explore our options to be sure we make the best decision for the company.

We are continuing to move forward with the expansion and strengthening of our I.P. We have met with patent counsel and provided write ups in regards to what we expect to be a new patent and a continuation in part on our existing patent. We feel very good about both pieces of work and look forward to them adding value to the company.

Our strategic partnerships continue to grow and one of the latest interesting developments has to do with the discovery of a potential application of our units with solar power. Our lead engineer Peter Swett had a couple of calls with sister companies Genpro and Dakota Power on this subject. The potential of the opportunity lies in the fact that with the latest photovoltaic panels used in conjunction with a switched reluctance motor could either run a small unit during peak times or offset the energy load of a system at the peak energy use points of the day. This is very significant due to the fact that the cost of electricity is continuing to rise, not only here but around the world. This only solidifies the fact that we are in the right spot to take advantage of a changing energy climate and add to the momentum of the increased demand for new energy efficiency products.

Best Regards,

While there are many energy saving options in the HVAC world that are touting higher seer ratings they are almost exclusively dependent upon smart technologies to monitor usage patterns, scroll compressors and incorporating solar assistance. While these improvements certainly create energy savings they are essentially propping up an old technology. At AWT we have changed the way HVAC is done. By utilizing our patented isothermal turbo compressor we have increased efficiency and performance by changing the method of compression. That can take energy efficiency and energy savings as well and $$ saving to a whole new level.
