THE•1® is a game-changing innovation for solarthermal power plants In power plants an enormous mass of thermal energy is being used to power steam turbines. The energy conversion efficiency of modern power plants is of about 50%. Most losses result from unused heat, more precise from thermal energy loss. Thermal energy losses in modern power plants are indicated at 60%. The results can be seen at power plants releasing steam to our ecosystem via cooling towers. The untapped thermal energy potential can be leveraged by THE•1®. THE•1® will utilize almost all thermal energy available in wasted process heat and convert it into electrical power.
