Low Temperature Stirling Engine for Waste Heat Recovery from Distributed Power Sources

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Samuel P. Weaver – (303) 442-2121
Award Amount: $79,902.63
Abstract:
"Since March 2006, Boulder, Colorado based Cool Energy, Inc. (CEI) has prototyped three generations of a novel low-temperature Stirling engine to generate electricity for low-to-medium temperature (100°C to 250°C) heat sources including solar thermal, geothermal and waste heat. With a marketing… More

Low-Temperature Stirling Engine for Geothermal Electricity Generation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Samuel Weaver, Dr. – 720-459-8649
Award Amount: $149,581.00
Abstract:
Up to 2700 terawatt-hours per year of geothermal electricity generation capacity has been shown to be available within North America, typically with wells drilled into geologically active regions of the earths crust where this energy is concentrated (Huttrer, 2001). Of this potential, about half is… More
