Alphabet Energy, Inc. Introduces PowerModule for Modular Thermoelectric Waste Heat to Power Generation
Jun 24 15
Alphabet Energy, Inc. announced the availability of the Alphabet Energy PowerModule as a standalone product. Now, any energy-intensive industry from automotive, commercial trucking, industrial manufacturing, defense, oil & gas, to mining can custom design solutions to fit their unique needs and convert exhaust heat into valuable electricity. The Alphabet Energy PowerModule is a solid-state, liquid-cooled electrical generator that converts exhaust heat into electricity using Alphabet Energy’s proprietary PowerBlocks thermoelectric materials. Thoroughly tested in Alphabet Energy’s first product, the E1 Thermoelectric Generator (there are 32 PowerModules in an E1), the PowerModule directly accepts exhaust heat with a temperature ranging from 350 – 600 °C and transforms it into DC electricity, delivering up to 850 watts of power. As the E1 continues to prove valuable to customers in the oil & gas, mining and defense industries as they generate reliable remote power while also reducing fuel consumption, operating costs and carbon emissions, the PowerModule has gained market traction on its own. Alone, the PowerModule can be used on a passenger vehicle to reduce alternator loads and improve fuel efficiency, or scaled in multiples to increase energy efficiency for industrial furnaces at a steel manufacturing plant. The company will jointly develop and commercialize a next-generation-exhaust system incorporating PowerModules, with the goal of delivering significant fuel savings for commercial fleet truck fleets.
Borla Performance and Alphabet Energy to Jointly Develop and Commercialize Next-Generation Exhaust System Incorporating Thermoelectric Waste Heat Recovery
Jun 24 15
Borla and Alphabet Energy and Alphabet Energy announced a nonexclusive partnership to deliver the industry’s aftermarket thermoelectric fuel-efficiency product for vehicle internal combustion engines. Borla’s technologically-advanced exhaust systems coupled with Alphabet Energy’s PowerModule thermoelectric generator has the potential to capture 5% to 10% of a car or truck’s waste heat and use it to improve fuel efficiency by reducing alternator loads or replacing the alternator entirely. This captured heat can be used to power the multitude of electrical components on a modern car normally powered by the energy-hungry alternator, such as lights, heating, air conditioning, sound, and navigation systems. Alphabet Energy’s PowerModules will undergo testing on both gasoline and diesel truck exhausts at Borla’s research and development centers in Oxnard, Calif. and Johnson City, Tenn. Based on positive results from the testing, the two companies intend to co-develop and commercialize the next-generation Borla Exhaust for trucks and other mobile and stationary internal combustion engines with Alphabet Energy PowerModules.
