Warming Solutions, Inc. has initiated RD&E for a small LETG solar
power plant with a capacity of 1MW that will also include a low
temperature thermal turbine to boost thermal electricity generation
from the system. The company claims that the rated levelized cost of
developing the LETG-based energy farm is 1.9-2.2 times less than a
conventional thermal energy farm.
“The LETG produces both electrical and thermal energy,” said Dr. Alexander Kornaraki, Chief Operating Officer of Global Warming Solutions. “Electrical energy is produced by a photovoltaic process and thermal energy is gathered by the LETG heat-transfer medium. We will now be adding a low temperature heat to energy converter that will produce even more electricity from the LETG.”
More detailed information on its LETG technology has been promised soon by the company.
