      Unfortunately, it would take almost constant lightning to justify the capital investment of this concept. The capacity factor is something like 1/1000 of wind power, at best. Nor is a building really AWE. 

      Background Note-

      The risk of the modern patent system is that the IP lawyers and government fee-based services are all to happy to take anyone's money and issue a patent, with hardly any concern for reasonableness, prior art, inventive leap, etc.. Individuals are stripped of life savings and start-ups are bankrupted. Patent trolls thrive in patent thickets. The average inventor would have a better chance in a casino.

      Eventually patent pools emerge in many industries, for one-stop licensing. Such pools are full of junk patents, with rare nuggets of key IP. Its proposed (under the RAD doctrine) a general AWE IP Pool charge ~1% royalty on a potentially multi-trillion dollar AWE industry. If you hold AWE patents, and you want revenue to start, join the AWE Patent Pool. Contact Ed or Rod to license your IP (buy or sell) under non-exclusive inventor-cooperative terms, with incentives for early participation.
