1kW Ultra-Reliable Remote Power

1GENsimple.jpg

The 1GEN, is a new form of ultra-reliable power generator based on thermo-acoustic physics. It produces 1 kW of electrical power from field gas, natural gas, or propane, with ultra-low maintenance (no sliding or rotating parts).

The 1GEN helps better equip remote off-grid well sites with power generation to eliminate pneumatic fuel gas emissions by powering air compressors and electric control.

We help our customers reach compliance with methane emission reduction regulations in the most environmentally challenging conditions.

THE PROBLEM

1% of Canada's GHG emissions
comes from pneumatic driven devices in oil & gas


6,000,000
 
tCO2e/year
13%

of Canada's GHG emissions are from methane (CH4)

43%

of anthropogenic methane emissions are from oil & gas systems

52%

are functional 
oil & gas venting emissions

31%

are from pneumatic driven devices

ELIMINATING METHANE VENTING

1GEN can cost-effectively reduce wellhead CO2e emissions by


>98%

600 tCO2e/yr/1GEN @ continuous full operation

POWER USE

1kWe (1-4 wellheads) per 1GEN

TECHNOLOGY

At the foundation of our ultra-reliable genset lays an elegant and simple heat engine design (protected by 10x patents) made possible by using thermo-acoustic physics.

 

This unique approach allows us to develop an efficient  continuous load following (0-1kWe) genset that outperforms competing technologies on total cost of ownership due to the long lifetime and ultra-low-maintenance. 

Please contact us for more information on why we are a cost-effective alternative to current products.
