Title: A Novel Solar Thermal Combined Cycle with Bio-Methane Carbon Capture for Distributed Power Generation
Massachusetts Institute of Technology students are developing and demonstrating a modular renewable energy cogeneration system that can use solar and organic resources. The design combines concentrating solar thermal and biofuel technologies to increase the efficiency of power generation and decrease the CO2 emissions compared to a Diesel generator.
