Watch our select videos to better understand
the value of steam energy.
We would like to remind people that “Steamification is the alternative”
and here is why:
- You can generate steam from multiple green source fuels such as biomass, biogas, solar, nuclear and waste to energy.
- Steam is easy to transport WITHOUT a pump. Up to 10,000 feet per minute.
- Steam is safe and reliable. When you have a steam leak, it’s never an emergency.
- Steam is visible, non-flammable, non-toxic and isn't a shock hazard.
- Steam can be used for heating and cooling with 100+ years of proven technologies.
- Steam turbines can generate electric power and even run a pump or a fan.
- Steam has very low transmission loss compared to electricity.
- One pound of steam contains more than 1000 Btu. How much for the same pound of water?
- Steam only needs a small pump, 9 times smaller than for a hot water loop.
- Steam is as efficient as condensing hot water boilers.
- Low condensate temperature allows for non-metallic (PEX) piping.
- Considering carbon capture becomes easier in a central steam plant, especially if combined in a cogeneration system that distributes steam for heating and cooling.
- Steam is a utility much like electricity.
- Steam offers electric grid relief.
