Capstone Turbine Corp. is reporting increasing sales of its higher-margin, low-emission microturbine systems.

Derived through advanced engineering based on proven turbine design, microturbines represent a watershed energy management solution.

Transforming the way businesses think about energy production, Capstone solutions reduce energy costs, ensure power availability and help preserve the environment with its near-zero emissions profile.

Applications include electric vehicles, data centers, office buildings, manufacturing and residential installations. Continuous duty microturbine systems are designed to save energy, money and the environment, all in one simple, easily deployable, reliable solution.

Current plug-in electric vehicle driving ranges are extremely short between battery charges. A microturbine dramatically extends the driving range of the vehicle. According to Velozzi their cars will operate on 100 percent battery power in zero-emissions mode for a range of up to 200 miles. Then, when the batteries reach a pre-determined state of discharge, the Capstone microturbine quietly and efficiently recharges the batteries on the fly to extend the driving range up to 1,000 miles.

The diesel-fueled Capstone microturbine produces ultra-low emissions and requires less maintenance than the traditional combustion engine found in today's hybrid-electric vehicles. Capstone microturbines can run on diesel, bio-diesel, ethanol, methanol, jet fuel, propane and compressed natural gas. Capstone was recently awarded a Department of Energy grant to develop a flex fuel turbine that will operate on agricultural syngas and hydrogen.

"Capstone's fuel system gives the driver the flexibility to use a multitude of energy sources available today and in the future," Velozzi said. "You don't have to wait years for plug-in infrastructure or a new fuel infrastructure to be developed to charge or power Velozzi vehicles because our vehicles can use many fuels available today," added Velozzi.

"Capstone's strategy is to provide microturbine solutions today based on our current industrial product that automotive, truck and bus manufacturers can immediately integrate into their electric vehicles while simultaneously collaborating with key automotive component manufacturers to build a high volume, lower cost automotive version of our products," said Capstone President and CEO, Darren Jamison.

Low-emission Microturbine Systems

Capstone Turbine Corporation is a leading producer of low-emission microturbine systems, and was the first to market commercially viable microturbine energy products.

Capstone Turbine has shipped over 5,000 Capstone MicroTurbine(R) systems to customers worldwide. These award-winning systems have logged millions of documented runtime operating hours.

Greener Transportation

Capstone Turbine is a member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Combined Heat and Power Partnership, which is committed to improving the efficiency of the nation's energy infrastructure and reducing emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases.
