Thank you for visiting Infinia via our web-site. We are an aggressive team commercializing a compelling and uniquely scalable solar power solution that will enable broad access to inexpensive, mass-manufactured solar power. We are also working on a number of other unique energy conversion products that offer the potential to dramatically increase energy efficiency and cost effectiveness. By exploring our site, you will learn about our team, our aspirations, our products and our technology. And I hope you will gain an appreciation for the creativity, know-how and commitment that defines what we do and how we do it.

Our focus is simple – we are changing how the world uses energy. And we are doing this by offering unique, high-performance, cost-effective energy conversion solutions using our proprietary, mass-manufactured, free-piston Stirling engines. These engines are at the heart of:

Our objective is to dramatically increase the scale and availability of solar power and to compete effectively with other sources of grid-based power generation. We are doing this by coupling our proven free-piston Stirling engine with a dish-style solar concentrator to produce 3.2 kW of grid-quality AC power and by harnessing the manufacturing might of the world’s automotive industry. We combine industry-leading solar product performance with massive production scale to dramatically lower the cost of solar power. The PowerDish does not consume water or need flat ground to operate and can be deployed in numbers that fit within existing transmission and distribution system constraints. These attributes enable deployments in solar parks ranging in size from a few units to thousands of units.

These products simultaneously provide electricity and heat to residential consumers and are expected to reduce energy costs by 15% and the associated greenhouse gas emissions by over 20%, without any reduction in consumer comfort and satisfaction. Infinia has partnered with Bosch, Rinnai, Merloni and Enatec to bring these revolutionary products to market.

Because Infinia’s Stirling generators are externally heated machines, they can convert heat from virtually any source into electricity. This includes using methane from biomass as a fuel for a village-sized power generation system. We are working closely with our partners to create and deploy just such a system for users in developing countries. Our system will enable multiple levels of village-based economic activity and will help address one of the largest gaps between the haves and the have-nots: access to clean, reliable electric power.
