Leveraging waste heat is a model for making any energy production more efficient. In the TalkSolar podcast below, I interview Phil Brennan, I his company’s technology fits in with the solar equation and the DOE project that is exploring waste heat and the solar connection.
Echogen Power Solutions is taking what was once waste and creating additional power with the waste heat, using no water. This is a breakthrough compared to the conventional method of using waste heat to generate electricity. So, listen in as Phil discusses this technology.
