Renewable energy: Current projects

Development of an advanced low-cost hybrid electric power generator

The project has four objectives: 1) To develop a mathematical tool for optimization of an advanced low-cost hybrid electric power generator, 2) To construct and test an advanced high-efficiency gas turbine prototype; 3) To establish a desalination plant operated on heat recovered from the electric power plant; and 4) To provide clean electric power to operate advanced agriculture projects.
