The groundbreaking solution for multi-hour energy storage from Azelio is a combination of field-proven technology and truly disruptive innovation. We have developed and enhanced the Stirling engine for many years, as well as optimized our Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) solution for this particular system. Together with our new innovation within Thermal Energy Storage (TES) we have created a solution with outstanding results.
The Stirling engine is unique in its ability to provide incredibly efficient conversion of thermal energy into a mechanical movement that can generate electricity.
This technology is not only effective – It’s also sustainable. Our deep insights in Stirling technology innovation stretches back some 25 years. We also have 2,000,000 operating hours accumulated at landfill sites and solar parks from the UK to Inner Mongolia.
The Stirling solutions are easy to install and maintain – in fact, they last considerably longer than conventional engines. And they are supported by a team of experts who have spent years (and in some cases decades) perfecting this technology.
Our R&D team has been exploring new sealing technologies, minimizing oil leakage and has developed unique simulation software, all to drive the next generation of power distribution. And they have succeeded in their efforts, making the Stirling engine a significant and lasting part of our new, unique and renewable solution
The most prominent advantage of the Stirling engine – besides being carbon neutral – is its high efficiency. The Azelio Stirling engine conversion rate to electricity is substantially higher than in traditional CSP. Having developed a reliable and highly robust design the need for maintenance is kept to a minimum. Owning our own high-volume assembly facility ensures the high quality and keeps production cost down
