Brayton Energy has received notification of award for ARPAe’s major initiative to develop a 1-kWe residential genset for combined electric and thermal power generation. The target specs are for 1 kW-electric, with an overall energy recovery efficiency of 80%, including heat captured above 80°C . (175°F). The target electrical conversion system efficiency is 40%, burning normal pipeline natural gas. With this efficiency, greater than the US national power plant average, combined with the waste heat capture for domestic water and heating, the product would substantially reduce the production of green-house gases. Future 2 and 3 kWe product are also anticipated.
