CAMARILLO, CA--(Marketwired - May 30, 2013) - Sauer Energy Inc.® ("SEI") (OTCBB: SENY), developer of the patented WindCharger™ vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) and manufacturer of the patented HelixWind® vertical axis wind turbine, has signed an important Memorandum of Understanding with Bionics Global, Inc. ("BGI") to enter the Asia-Pacific market for the first time.
Bionics Global, Inc. is a U.S. corporation operationally based in Asia, and headed by CEO, Edwin Cho, PhD. His organization operates wholesale distribution centers throughout Asia, and will use them to introduce Sauer's WindCharger and HelixWind turbines to the Asia-Pacific market.
"There is nothing like WindCharger technology available anywhere in Asia, and my management team is thrilled to be part of this exciting venture," Dr. Cho said. "Asia is facing a worsening energy shortage, hundreds of millions of people are suffering cruelly, and Sauer's patented technology will bring clean, low-cost electricity to towns and rural areas for the first time. That will be especially true in those regions that aren't served by hugely expensive power grids." He noted that Sauer's WindChargers will also reduce the dependency on nuclear power, which is a major problem, particularly in Asian countries.
Dr. Cho said that word of Sauer's clean, self-sustaining, cost-effective energy is spreading throughout many parts of Asia, and he is anticipating an immediate retail and governmental demand. He added that BGI's existing sales infrastructure in the three countries will create a powerful initial launch.
"We're already doing business in these markets, we're very familiar with local consumers and governments, and we think that Sauer technology offers the ideal solution for these very challenging times," Dr. Cho said. "India, by itself, offers an incredible opportunity. There are literally hundreds of thousands of towns and villages with little or no electrical power, and Sauer can be a life-changer for tens of millions of people."
Dieter Sauer, CEO and President of Sauer Energy, was equally enthusiastic over entering the Asian market. SEI will begin producing U.S.-made turbines later this year, and he said the Asian markets will offer his company almost unlimited sales potential.
"SEI's proprietary ownership of the WindCharger and HelixWind technologies open up the entire world for clean, self-sustaining, cost-effective energy," Sauer said. "But while the potential is huge within North America, even that is over-shadowed by the desperate demand in Asia -- and later in Africa. Most of those regions have no power grid infrastructure, because they're unaffordable, and SEI's low-cost technology offers a practical and immediate solution.
"We look forward to working with Dr. Cho and his team at BGI. We'll be providing the technology and products, while they'll be offering their substantial sales infrastructure. Millions of people will be depending on us!"
SEI looks forward to further advances in what is expected to be a highly beneficial relationship. Projected sales in these highly lucrative markets should shorten the timeframe for the company reaching profitability.
"Expanding our relationship with BGI's new business platform will speed up the clock for SEI. We are very pleased with the sales projections and we believe that BGI will provide the perfect environment for our expansion into world markets," Sauer commented.
This new growth strategy is projected to establish a global presence and produce vertical product demand. It will allow SEI to address the priorities of manufacturing and its core expertise into research and development, especially with a growing focus on disruptive technology for renewable energy. At under a current 3% market share of the renewable energy market, wind power's potential has barely been tapped.
SEI will continue to actively seek companies such as BGI to work on cost-effective solutions to help the world's energy needs.
