Flowery Branch, Georgia – ElectraTherm, a leader in distributed, waste heat to power (WHP) generation, surpassed one million hours of cumulative fleet runtime. ElectraTherm’s power generation fleet spans the globe with Power+ Generators in 10 countries focused on creating clean energy from a variety of low temperature heat streams. Applications range from internal combustion engine cooling, to combined heat and power systems, micro geothermal, biomass, and more.
ElectraTherm utilizes ORC and proprietary technologies to generate power from low temperature heat streams. Hot water is the fuel that drives an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) to create renewable energy that is fuel free and emission free.
ElectraTherm’s years of experience and continued focus on advancing WHP technology are further demonstrated with a $1.8 million US Department of Energy cooperation agreement to advance the combined heat and power market. Development of increased input temperatures to the ORC and also increased condensing temperatures will provide beneficial use of the thermal from the ORC after power production. As a result, the Power+ Generator will provide two value streams on CHP applications: kW’s from waste heat and useful thermal energy for building thermal demands.
“ElectraTherm continues to push on the growing waste heat to power market globally and our proven fleet experience is what sets us apart from others in this space,” said John Fox, ElectraTherm’s Managing Director. “We are very proud to be part of the global BITZER network and are really focusing on how to expand market acceptance for WHP. It’s an exciting time for ORC technology and small-scale waste heat to power generation.”
