Electricity Generation from Waste Heat

Ergenics teamed with Texas A&M's Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) and the Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy to build and field test a prototype metal hydride heat engine-generator. Designed to operate using the energy from 140°F warm water and rejecting heat at 60°F, the 1 kW prototype was installed and operated at Texas A&M's new San Antonio campus. The following video provides information about the hydride heat engine process and shows the prototype in operation.
