FAQ

Why use a Stirling engine?
A Stirling engine, or heat engine, offers many advantages over traditional technologies such as fuel versatility, zero to low emissions, a scalable distributed generation solution, combined heat and power, ease of installation, smooth and quiet operation, and low maintenance requirements and costs.

What kind of heat sources can your product accept?
A Stirling engine is heat neutral. This means heat from the combustion of solids, liquids, gasses, heat concentrated from the sun, or hot air from an industrial operation are all options. The Stirling engine may need additional technology to convert the source fuel to heat (example is a gasifier or incinerator to convert woodchips to exhaust gasses) and the Stirling engine itself may require adaptation to the specific heat source. The requirements for that input heat to the Stirling engine (temperature, volume, cleanliness, etc.) vary from source to source. If you have a heat source for consideration, please contact us.

What size is your product?
Our Stirling engine is one of the largest known and outputs up to 43 kWe, making it well suited for commercial or industrial customers. It is not designed for residential use.

When will your product be available for sale?
The commercial availability date, unit pricing, heat source(s), and technical specifications are not available at this point. Please continue to check our website regularly for announcements.

Do you work with technology or market partners?
Yes, if a partner brings a complimentary technology to allow the Stirling engine to operate on a heat source, or if the partnership brings the technology to a new market and customers, we are interested in learning more.
