Qnergy (q-ner–gy) provide reliable remote power in the 1-10kW range to help companies improve operational efficiency, decrease cost and reduce emissions.
Qnergy’s team is comprised of experts who have dedicated their careers to the development of reliable engines. The team developed a state of the art free-piston Stirling engine. The technology was recently recognized by NASA (LINK) as the most reliable heat engine technology ‘in history’. Qnergy’s engine can use any heat source. The typical fuels are natural gas, propane and biogas.
While the Stirling concept is known for about two centuries, Qnergy is the only company that has a Stirling-based, stand-alone power generator: the PowerGen. Qnergy introduced the PowerGen line in the summer of 2017, with a pilot ‘try and buy’ program. By the fall, all pilot customers bought the system. Fast forward to today, many Fortune 500 gas companies rely on Qnergy to meet their remote power needs.
Qnergy’s newest program is CAP (Compressed Air Pneumatics). CAP helps gas companies eliminate methane emission from pneumatic devices. CAP3, using compressed air, is now being deployed. CAP1 – using electrical actuators, will be deployed in Fall 2019. The annual U.S. emission reduction potential of CAP is about 40 million tons of CO2- e. Equivalent to taking 9.5 million cars off the road.
