Heat2Power™ TURBINE: CONVERT WASTE HEAT TO ELECTRICITY

THE OPPORTUNITY

Harness high-temperature industrial waste heat to produce electricity with 247Solar’s Heat2Power™ turbine - the first-ever commercial turbine able to produce power directly from ambient-pressure hot air without combustion or emissions. Now, any facility that produces air above 900℃ (1650℉) can convert this otherwise-wasted resource into electricity to help power operations or to sell as an additional revenue stream.



WHAT YOU GET WITH THE Heat2Power™ TURBINE

Our Heat2Power turbine is a simple, profitable solution. The 200 kWe turbine, made by Capstone® Turbine Corporation and modified to 247Solar specifications, is the most reliable and bestselling in its class. It has a compact design and is delivered to the site for easy, low-cost installation and operation.

 



Heat2Power™ TURBINE FEATURES

  • Powered directly by ambient-pressure hot air – not steam
  • Offers two exhaust streams: 250℃/480℉ and 640℃/1180℉ for other processes requiring heat
  • The 247Solar HeatStorE™ thermal battery is available for time-of-day load shifting up to 10 hours, e.g., to avoid demand charges
  • Proven technology with tens of millions of operating hours
  • One moving part + minimal maintenance and downtime
  • Remote monitoring and diagnostic capabilities
  • Optionally, the turbine can burn fuel, including hydrogen, for 24/7 dispatchability

 

THE Heat2Power™ TURBINE IS PART OF 247SOLAR’S ULTRA-HIGH TEMPERATURE TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM

HOW THE Heat2Power™ TURBINE WORKS

High-temperature industrial exhaust gas (min. 900℃) is supplied to the turbine at ambient pressure, where it passes through a proprietary high-temperature heat exchanger. This transfers the heat to the turbine’s compressed air, which enters the turbine’s expander at the required pressure and temperature to drive the turbine.

No fuel is required and no emissions are produced by this process.
