A STEP closer to transformational electric power
Mechanical construction is complete on this next-generation pilot plant test facility in San Antonio, Texas, enabled by supercritical CO2 technology. The project successfully achieved sCO2 fluid conditions in early 2023, and full-scale testing will begin in early 2024 to illustrate the performance of this high-efficiency power cycle over a range of operating conditions.
Flexible & reliable power
Broad applicability across multiple low- and zero-emission heat sources offers cleaner power that improves grid stability and resiliency
Efficient & versatile
This first-of-a-kind pilot power plant will demonstrate how sCO2 technology produces electricity in a more cost effective and efficient way with smaller turbo-machinery and lower emissions.
