50% of all energy goes to waste
As so called waste heat. Waste heat can be found almost everywhere in our society, and is currently dumped into our atmosphere or in the ocean. Low temperature waste heat, as Climeon converts, can be found in solar power, paper mills, data centers, hospitals and spas, for example. However, the Climeon Heat Power system can be connected to almost any low temperature heat source to produce significant amounts of clean electricity.
The Climeon Heat Power system is not dependent on weather conditions, meaning it can produce an unlimited amount of clean electricity. All day and all night. Complementing solar and wind power as a dependable baseload for electricity in a sustainable society.
The system does not only offer significant fuel and electricity savings, but it has a large environmental impact as well. A Heat Power system can offer hundreds of thousands tons of CO2 savings every year. Climeon calls this business for a better world.
Increase genset efficiency by lowering fuel cost and reducing the amount of CO₂ emitted
Short payback time
Leading payback time enabled by the world’s most efficient low temperature system
Plug and play design allows for fast and easy integration with plants existing systems with limited disruption.
Early on, Sir Richard Branson jumped on the Climeon journey with Virgin Voyages. As an advocate for clean electricity himself, getting involved with Climeon and Heat Power was inevitable.
Let him explain why.
The Heat Power process
The process is in fact quite simple.
The Climeon Heat Power system exploits the temperature difference between hot and cold water (or heat exchange of gas or steam with hot water) to generate clean electricity. At the same time, less carbon emissions are released into the atmosphere, improving the efficiency and reducing the environmental impact of the power plant.
Efficient, economical, profitable
The Climeon system combines high efficiency and low overall cost, driving significant savings in fuel and electricity costs, to create a powerful business case for the utilization of waste heat.
The technology operates at low pressure levels in comparison to traditional heat power solutions. For example, Organic Rankine Cycles (ORC) which operate at much higher-pressure levels, are both larger in size and less efficient at the low temperature where the largest bulk of waste heat is found. Climeon's low temperature levels allow delivery of up to 50% higher efficiencies than other solutions on the market, while creating a smaller carbon footprint from manufacturing.
Below is an example of a Climeon Heat Power 50 MW system.
Flexible and scalable design
The system's low pressure levels allows a compact and modular design, making it easily scalable from 150kW modules, to several 50 MW systems for larger installations. The modular design ensures optimal efficiency, even at partial load. Modules are automatically powered on, or off, to match thermal power whenever there us fluctuation in the heat source. Modules can be installed both indoors and outdoors. The Climeon system can be connected to any heat source, and comes as a complete product. It consists of only three moving parts per module: a turbine and two pumps.
The Climeon control system, Climeon Live, makes the system fully automatic. It optimizes performance in real time, to ensure maximum energy generation. Each Climeon module has multiple sensors delivering measurements. Data is collected and stored in the cloud for historical performance reporting. Climeon Live identifies potential faults before they arise, minimizing the risk of unplanned downtime. Climeon Live's API can also be integrated into external control systems, offering a valuable PR-message with emission-savings and clean electricity production output.
