By Christian Mueller Combined heat and power (CHP) modules based on natural gas-fueled reciprocating engines promise increased energy efficiency for a wide array of applications. CHP, also known as cogeneration, involves the simultaneous production of heat and electric power from the same source of fuel—usually natural gas. The principle has been put to use for more than 130 years as a way to conserve resources, increase efficiency, and save money. While the prime mover used in the production of ...... continue reading

There’s more than one way to do anything, believes Larry Leetzow, president of Magnaray International, a division of World Institute of Lighting and Development Corp. in Bradenton, FL. One way to reduce absenteeism while increasing employee productivity is to provide workers with control over their environment through lighting. Employee productivity may be a “soft issue” that’s hard to quantify, but lowering electric consumption through energy-efficient lighting is clear cut. With quality lighting appro...... continue reading

POMPANO BEACH, FL, Feb. 16, 2011. Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. (Pink Sheets: CYPW) has successfully completed a third phase of performance tests of its heat-regenerative external combustion engine for Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS), a business of Raytheon Company . The tests verified by Raytheon demonstrated that Cyclone's prototype, water-cooled "Stingray" engine achieved thermal efficiencies over 30%. Applied to a large diameter unmanned undersea vehicle, such efficiency yields double cu...... continue reading
