"Micro-combined heat and power is the panacea for renewable energy generation
from biomass. These systems offer the promise of being over 90% efficient, because
electricity generated in the home displaces electricity normally brought in from the
grid system. On average only 35% of the energy produced in a power station can be
used in the home, while 65% is lost during the generation and transportation process.
Our early efforts to develop a micro-chp system focused on the development of
technology that is capable of removing all the moisture from the biomass, which
enables significant gains in energy density. Once we were able to overcome this
issue we turned our attention to sourcing an engine to generate electrical power
which was capable of adding to the improvements achieved from the dry biomass.
After more than 3 years of research, discussion and testing we settled on the
Green Turbine as the best option to deliver the promise of biomass-based
