Energy device could generate big savings

A Scots inventor says he can knock £1,000 per year off people’s heating bills with an ingenious contraption that runs on water.

Michael Dutton has built a device that can extract hydrogen from water at breakneck speed. He’s also built a novel generator which he claims can use the hydrogen to generate electricity more efficiently than current products on the market.

As well as being cheap, his invention is eco-friendly as the only by-product is water.

He said: “The idea is to use water as a burnable fuel to heat homes. The first device can produce about 15 to 20 litres per minute which is a phenomenal amount. I see it as a cheap fuel. It’s also clean and green.

“It could knock anything up to £1,000 off your annual energy bills. The generator puts out more power than anything on the market right now as I’ve made it more efficient. It can be powered by wind, water or a mechanical device such as an engine.”

Michael is a trained electrical engineer and served for almost a decade with the Royal Corps of Signals. He runs his own company, The Tsarina Imperial Dacha Co Ltd, which builds log cabins.

Michael, 54, who lives in Ayrshire with wife Natalia and their son, said he first came up with his hydrogen extractor idea when he was 16 and tinkered with it on and off during his life.

However, his hobby has now attracted interest from business and academic circles.

He said: “I would like to license these products out to other companies to manufacture then use the money to invest in my log cabin company. That way I can provide local jobs.”
