Rotaheat's use in renewable energy generation

Rotaheat's use in renewable energy generation

Renewable Energy Generation

Rotaheat have developed a device which is capable of taking simple shaft driven input energy and converting it to heat.

Simple, clean renewable heat has a huge potential variety of uses:

Space Heating for:

  • home
  • farm
    • animal husbandry
    • crop development
  • industrial premises

Hot Fluid for:

  • domestic
  • industry
    • processing
    • cleaning
  • energy storage /distribution

If the world is serious about the reduction of Carbon Dioxide production levels by up to 80% by 2050 then we need to tackle the Decarbonisation of Heat.

There is no single fix capable of Decarbonising Heat: Improving Building Energy Efficiency, Electrification of Heat and Increased use of District Heating – all have the potential to contribute to the reduction of carbon production associated with heat.

However, solving the decarbonisation of heat challenge will require an open minded and inclusive approach to:

  • energy harvesting,
  • conversion,
  • storage

Rotaheat’s technology delivers unbeatable conversion efficiency of input energy into usable heat which can now be added in to the mix.

A Rotaheater has the potential to generate heat energy, simply and more efficiently than the alternatives at a lower cost than traditional alternatives as part of this future energy mix.

Rotaheat economics are such that install cost and increases in efficiency can render otherwise uneconomic projects viable.

Rotaheat's use in renewable energy generation:

Rotaheat devices are ideally suited to delivering clean renewable heat

They produce heat with every rotation

They are robust, simple and easy to install

They are capable of taking a wide variety of input energy drivers

They require a minimal level of external infrastructure: input energy and a cooling circuit

They are capable of delivering meaningful temperatures in excess of 100°C

Case Study:
Space & Water Heating

The Rotaheater provides a cost effective space and water heating solution for domestic, industrial and agricultural premises which do not have access to low-cost mains gas and are consequently forced to import highly expensive alternatives like heating oil or liquefied gas.

Rotaheat can deliver highly efficient conversion of wind or water power directly in to heat without the need for expensive voltage conditioning electronics or uprated electric grid connection.

Because renewable energy can be intermittent, however, Rotaheat solutions do not require the removal of existing systems, rather they complement them, providing heat when available and allowing traditional solutions to step in when it isn’t thereby allowing clients to benefit from cost savings when available whilst maintaining a standby capability.

At a Farm in Derbyshire, a 10kW Rotaheater is connected to a water-wheel to produce heat in to a domestic radiator solution whilst sitting alongside an electrical generation capability.

When required the Rotaheater delivers heat to the premises, when not the farm switches over to the production of electricity for domestic consumption and export to the grid.
