WOW Energies Announces Launch of New Solar Technology

Sugar Land, TX-based WOW Energies recently announced the launch of its new process for converting solar energy into electricity -- the cascading closed loop system (CCLC), which utilizes a closed loop hydrocarbon heat exchanger driving multiple turbo expanders.

According to the company, the use of CCLC in a concentrating solar power (CSP) system targets working fluid temperatures less than 800 degrees Fahrenheit.

"This is a dramatic moment for energy conservation and pollution reduction," said WOW Energies CEO Daniel Stinger. "A cost-effective and highly efficient technology using off-the-shelf components now exists to produce power from heat sources such as solar, geothermal, waste heat streams and flue gases. This allows us to meet tomorrow's environmental challenges today by conserving energy and reducing greenhouse gases."

WOW Energies noted that the new process employs parabolic sun collectors to harness solar energy to run its patented CCLC turbine system.
