Our Volo engine, powered by a temperature difference, generates electricity. Three markets identified to date - home generator market, DIY off grid marketplace, and third world countries lacking either electrical delivery infrastructure or gasoline infrastructure.
The engine runs off of any temperature difference, from burning waste, wood, natural gas, solar concentration, waste heat.
There is no intake of fuel into the engine or exhaust from the engine.
The design targets for the engine are 1KW output at 300 C temperature difference.
The size of the engine is approximately 6' long x 16" in diameter and weighs 200lbs.
Our target system costs are approximately $2 / Watt in system cost (Solar ~ $5 / Watt).
