Welcome to Energy Concepts Co., LLC
We’re committed to developing technology and innovations to provide practical solutions to pressing world energy problems. Please use this site to learn more about our company, our products, our technolgies, our publications, and how to contact us.
Energy Concepts Co. designs and develops energy-efficient, heat-activated absorption systems and associated fluid contact equipment. The absorption systems produce refrigeration, heat pumping, space conditioning and/or power.
The technologies apply over a wide capacity range, from small residential to large industrial equipment.
- ThermoSorber™ – co-produces hot water and chilling with half the energy required for normal hot water production
- ThermoChiller – produces chilling from any heat source: exhaust, geothermal, excess steam
- ThermoCharger – uses turbine exhaust to cool inlet air for year round peak turbine performance
- Industrial Refrigeration – custom plants using any waste heat stream to make chilling down to -50°F
