The SPP technology is based on a reversible process. By adding heat it will produce mechanical energy that can be used for power production.
SPP HeatPower can be applied for district heating system or in combined district heating and cooling. Typical heat sources and heat sinks for heat-pump based district heating are seawater, ground water, rock or sewage.
Optimizing the SPP HeatPower technology for power production unlocks further revenue potential without seasonal varieties or in areas with high cost of electricity, like in most European countries.
Within waste incineration, SPP HeatPower is a converter of heat energy to electric power. In waste incineration plants, SPP HeatPower may produce electric power from the heat at a good efficiency, without being sensitive for variations in temperature and available heat or cooling.
