This past week, the Combined Energy Technology (CET) team had a soft-opening of Bio-Gen 1000. They have spent the last 2 years painstakingly developing this innovative technology.
The system itself is a Microgen Stirling Engine powered and biogas fueled micro-energy plant. Through the gasification of wood pellets, the Bio-Gen 1000 successfully creates 1 kW of electricity, 5.5 kW of heat energy, and 1 lb of biochar per hour. The Bio-Gen 1000 is positioned to revolutionize power production for sustainable homes, agricultural operations, and off-grid energy sites.
On 04-Mar-2018, ÖkoFEN with their self-sufficient house concept, had 14 days without a single kWh from the grid, generating 100% of heat and electricity from renewables.
As they state “No other way to do this all year round in cold climates”
As an example, in Austria (home of ÖkoFEN) pellets costs around 4.5 €-Cent per kWh. But since the ÖkoFEN system is a condensing boiler with 15% more efficiency this makes up for the extra fuel for Microgen’s Stirling Engine generator, so you would not need more pellets than with a standard pellet boiler.
Following the announcement by Okofen and Fronius in March 2017 to start with a renewable Autarkic home energy system, based on their own and Microgen technology, they now take the project to the next level. Introduction of the system is under way. Recently a first webinar relating to the subject for interested people was held. Learn more about this beautifull solution on:
The last year BGRI demonstrated a new concept for the use of waste gases from the well sites.This year BGRI presents BGR Rush Power a new product that together with the Microgen Stirling Unit converts waste gas into energy. This reliable power source in a standalone unit can provide a continuous 1000 watts to run SCADA systems, process control and measurement transmitters, and even lighting and security on remote well sites.

ÖkoFEN the first company in the world who successfully integrated a Microgen Stirling Unit into their pellet fired MCHP system several years ago takes further steps with their Microgen Powered woodpellet MCHP product (Pellematic Smart). They not only have launched their system in Japan since the beginning of the year it also forms one of the key pieces in their new Energy Self Sufficient Home System. Solar panels, the Microgen Powered (registered) Pellematic Smart or Pellematic Condens-e in combination with a grid building inverters and a battery pack can make a house fully energy sufficient. Also as of September 2016 the so called Pellematic Condens will come available as Pellematic Condens-e. For further information see attached or the website of:
