This Engine Generates Electricity Using Waste Hot Water

A new engine converts waste hot water from industrial equipment into electricity.

The engine generates electricity from heated water that is left over from other equipment. According to co-founder and chief executive Alan Healy, waste hot water (low-grade waste heat or LGWH) from industrial processes amounts to about twice the energy in Saudi Arabia's oil and gas output per year.

'Fifty per cent of the energy lost in our system is heat from thermo-generation - we are throwing away as much heat as we are using. It's bad for the economy and climate.'
