Final project results
The project has shown that the RED Heat Engine has the potential to achieve high efficiency and low cost for converting low-grade-heat to electricity. A roadmap has been developed with the actions required to bring the technology closer to the market. The main focus is on improving further the performance of the ion exchange membranes, as this has the highest impact on the system performance. The first applications targeted are for large systems that use the waste heat from industry or from gas compression stations.
