Welcome to the website of the Knowledge Center on Organic Rankine Cycle technology!
THE ORC POWER SYSTEM
Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) power systems are an efficient and reliable option for the generation of electricity in the small to medium power range (from few kWe up to tens of MWe). They are especially suitable for waste-heat to power and renewable energy sources like solar radiation, biomass thermal conversion, geothermal heat exploitation. A very promising application is waste heat recovery from mobile engines (internal combustion engines, gas turbines, etc) on board of trucks, ships, trains, and aircraft.
RELEASE OF THE TEHAG WHITE PAPER
The Thermal Energy Harvesting Advocacy Group (TEHAG) is extremely pleased to announce the release of the white paper titled "Thermal Energy Harvesting - the Path to Tapping into a Large CO2-free European Power Source".
This report aims to help foster general public knowledge / awareness and policy and regulation regarding the enormous potential of waste-heat-to-power technologies, and therefore the use of ORC power plants and systems for both stationary and mobile applications.
