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 renewable energy sources like solar radiation, biomass thermal conversion, geothermal heat exploitation, and industrial heat recovery.

 

 


RECENT R&D PROJECTS

CHESTER

The objective of CHESTER (Compressed Heat Energy Storage for Energy from Renewable Sources) project is to build a standard solution for the CHEST concept by combining high temperature thermal energy storage (HT-TES) and Organic Rankine Cycle units (ORC). The objective is to be achieved through the combination of theoretical modelling and experimental research. READ MORE
