The new energy model for an ageing planet has arrived. Fresh thinking and clean generating, it can help change our world. For the better.
UTC Power has created energy alternatives and renewable energy choices that actually deliver a real energy advantage. Energy that works the way you and your organisation work – whether you're poweri ng a building, a bus or a voyage to the moon.
Harvest the Productivity
Why do most of the natural resources consumed in powering the planet go up in smoke? Or waste heat?
We squeeze more energy from every ounce of natural resource. Generating energy efficiently, while at the same time instantly recycling what others waste.
Experience the Security
With storms, strife, and other uncontrollable circumstances of 21st century life, the grid feels the strain. So does everyone plugged into it. And you know increasing power consumption and demand will lead to increasing infrastructure strain and stress. Free yourself.
Preserve the Planet
A sick planet is not good for business. Anyone's business.
Climate change is only part of it. Resource depletion, damage and waste affect the health and potential of businesses as well as the health and potential of your planet.
Green energy is a phrase we use to describe environmentally friendly sources of energy which includes co-generation of electricity and chilled water and tri-generation which includes hot water. Additionally, some governments have drafted very specific definitions of green energy or an equivalent phrase which may be eligible for special subsidies or support in order to promote the technology.
At Sobono Energy, our Green energy solutions use the PureComfort™, PureCell™ and PureCell™ Model 5 range of products from UTC Power, a unit of United Technologies of the United States of America. These products use natural gas (or hydrogen in the case of PureCell™ Model 5 as a fuel source and are highly energy efficient and are ultra low pollution emitting in nature. The waste heat from the electrical generating micro turbines in the PureComfort™ system is channelled to drive an absorption chiller and auxillary heat exchanger to produce chilled water and hot water, thereby achieving an overall energy efficiency of more than 80% — far greater than that of a typical central power plant of 33% to 45%.
In the case of the PureCell™ 200 (to be replaced by the Purecell™ 400 in Q2 2009), natural gas is passed through a Fuel Processor which reforms the natural gas to a hydrogen rich gas to feed the fuel cell stack to produce 200kW (400kW) of power. The waste heat from this process is also recoverable and convertable to chilled water and hot water.
These innovative systems feature a proven absorption chiller/heater that provides space cooling in the summer and space heating in the winter, while microturbines provide from 180 to 360 kW of reliable power year-round. As a result, overall grid power consumption is significantly reduced all year round.
This clean, efficient and reliable fuel cell power plant produces 200 kilowatts of electricity and heat (900,000 Btus per hour) suitable for cogeneration applications. Since 1991, more than 250 PureCell™ 200 power systems have been sold in 19 countries and on five continents, with applications including a New York City Police Station, a major postal facility in Alaska and a science center in Japan.
Renewable and clean energy effectively uses natural resources such as geothermal heat, sunlight, wind, and tides which are naturally replenished. Renewable energy technologies range from solar power, wind power, and hydroelectricity to biomass and biofuels for transportation.
While there are many large-scale renewable energy projects, renewable technologies are also suited to small off-grid applications, sometimes in rural and remote areas, where energy is often crucial in human development.
Climate change concerns coupled with high oil prices, peak oil and increasing government support are driving increasing renewable energy legislation, incentives and commercialization.
At Sobono Energy, our renewable energy solutions use the PureCycle™ and PureCell™ range of products. The PureCycle™ power system can use geothermal water (or other industry type hot water) to drive a simple evaporation process to generate electrical power. The system is able to generate power from hot water at 100° to 150° C. As it is entirely enclosed, it produces no emissions. After the heat is extracted for power, the water is returned to the earth to be recycled. There is therefore tremendous potential to generate power for off grid locations with geothermal sources.
Meanwhile the PureCell™ system under this category of energy solution (as opposed to that found under the green energy category) uses Anaerobic Digester Gas (“ADG”) as a fuel source which may be obtained from waste water plants or landfill with pockets of ADG from disposed waste. A Fuel Processor reforms the ADG to a hydrogen rich gas to feed the fuel cell stack to produce energy. The waste heat from this process is also recoverable and converted to useable energy.
The PureCycle™ Model 280 geothermal power solution is an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) system consisting of four main components: a power turbine and induction generator, a shell tube evaporator, a shell tube condenser, and a refrigerant circulating pump. The installed PureCycle™ Model 280 solution also includes an electrical power distribution system and an electrical control system offering remote monitoring capability.
