DISTRIBUTED POWER

Traditional power generation and distribution systems consist mostly of large centralized power plants and transmission and distribution systems to deliver power to consumers. Increased power demand coupled with reliability and availability concerns hassled many industrial power users to consider self-generation via distributed energy resources (DERs).

Distributed power generation can have many benefits: 

  • Generation is co-located with use 

  • It can be scaled more easily to meet local requirements 

  • It doesn’t require expensive transmission upgrades 

  • Provides additional capacity and improved overall reliability 

  • Enables Combined Heat & Power (CHP) 

  • Customers can avoid or reduce demand charges and lower their overall energy costs 

Distributed Power represents 1/6th of installed power in the U.S. today. 

The problem. 

Carbon capture has not been commercially viable at distributed scale. 

The solution.
The Semi-Closed Cycle (SCC) makes distributed carbon economically viable

The SCC increases CO2 concentration by 2-7X, up to 25%.  This reduction in exhaust volume enables economic capture using smaller, less expensive systems.

Simple, reliable, and cost-effective decarbonization: 

  • When the captured CO2 is sequestered, CarbonPoint Solutions can result in up to 95% lower carbon footprint 
  • Available for new installations or easily upgrade existing systems at the site 
  • Systems are available for reciprocating engines or gas turbines  
  • Offers additional performance benefits such as reduced high ambient de-rate and increased fuel flexibility 
  • When combined with biogas fuels, carbon-negative solutions can be created (BECCS - Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Sequestration)
