Argonne and Capstone to advance CHP research

Microturbine firm Capstone and the Argonne National Laboratory of the USA are to jointly explore new combined heat and power technologies under a joint R&D programme.

Participation in the innovative Technologist in Residence (TIR) pilot scheme will see the pair work togeth Argonne er to identify areas of research and specific scopes of work.

Under the terms of a new agreement, the two will explore new focus areas, such as low cost, active combustion control systems and fuel adaptability. All of these focus areas are intended to advance the adoption of low emission, high efficiency power solutions.

Under the pilot programme, only seven awards for technologist partnerships were issued by the DOE, with a total funding value of $2.6 million over two years.

‘This is an enormous opportunity for Capstone, especially with the growth of the global CHP market,’ said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer at Capstone Turbine.

Jeff Foster, Vice President of Customer Service and Director of Program Management at Capstone Turbine, added: ‘The TIR program provides us the incentive needed to continue the advancement of world-class CHP solutions with the leverage of a national lab enterprise.’
