What is heat power?
We believe that heat power is the best form of clean energy on the planet. To get heat power we take pre-existing heat sources and turn it into clean electricity. Heat power mainly comes from two sources:
Why do we need it?
Did you know that just under one billion people lack access to electricity in the world today. Energy demand is estimated to rise by ~30% up until 2040. More than 75% of the electricity supply today comes from coal, oil & gas and nuclear plants. About 15% comes from hydro power, 4% from wind power and less than 2% comes from solar power.
In 2015, the UN together with more than 190 countries agreed and committed to the 17 sustainable development goals. Goal #7 is to "Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all".
We need to speed up the transition from fossil fuels to sustainable energy. We need a sustainable baseload that works regardless of whether or not the wind is blowing or the sun is shining - an energy source that is space efficient, has high energy density, and that doesn't emit greenhouse gases.
Heat power can provide a sustainable energy baseload and has the potential to be the largest contributor of renewable energy that would enable us to reach #SDG7 and reverse climate change. Let's use it!
