Stirling Energy Systems Inc.
Stirling Energy Systems (SES) is an electrical power equipment and systems integration company that is commercializing renewable energy technology products. SES holds the patents, tooling, and equipment rights to the point-focus solar dish concentrator initially engineered and built by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing). The solar concentrator was optimized to operate with a Stirling-cycle engine developed in Sweden in cooperation with Volvo and Ford. The SES/Boeing “Dish Stirling” system has held the world’s efficiency record for converting solar energy into grid quality electricity since 1984. In addition, the SES Stirling system can alternatively utilize natural gas, chemical fuels, or renewable biomass to produce grid-quality electrical power in non-solar applications. The SES technologies are applicable to individual homes, businesses of all types and sizes, and grid-scale utilities. SES is targeting U.S. utilities, foreign countries, remote communities, agricultural applications, off-grid applications and distributed power markets worldwide. The company is currently in discussions with a number of major utilities and groups in several foreign countries regarding power purchase agreement, system sales, and distribution rights. The global demand for new renewable electrical generating technologies is $100 billion per year.
