Electricity is expensive, unreliable, and carbon-intensive. Most sustainable options rely on the sun or wind and are undependable. Ekstera can convert heat into carbon-free energy that is reliable and saves you a lot of money.
We have developed patented technology to unlock the full potential of the Stirling engine. Our TrueCycle innovation allows the engines to follow the actual Stirling cycle and achieve the highest possible efficiency. We can convert heat into energy roughly three times more efficiently than an Organic Rankine Cycle.
We are interested in industrial partners to develop and demonstrate the technology in applications where we can convert heat into electricity to reduce carbon emissions and save money. We are currently in discussion with automotive suppliers, steel, power generation, cement, and glass companies.

Our higher efficiencies mean that you can generate more power and use lower temperature heat sources.
You can use a wide range of carbon-free and carbon-neutral heat sources to generate electricity including waste heat, biomass (like wood or crop waste), hydrogen, solar thermal, geothermal, and many more.
You can use heat sources that are free and readily available to generate your electricity at a very low cost and save money by offsetting your current electricity costs.
You can rely on Ekstera's Stirling engine generators to provide continuous power and be flexible in the heat sources that are used.
Our power units are small, scalable, and quiet with flexible electrical outputs so they are simple to integrate into your current setup.
Our power units can be used in harsh environments with any heat source so you can generate electricity anywhere.
