Driving Smarter Energy with Hinch

Winning NTT INDYCAR® SERIES driver, losing “Dancing with the Stars” contestant, SI “Body Issue” cover boy, NBC sports broadcaster, syrup swigging Canadian, adequate husband to beautiful wife Becky and the newest Capstone Green Energy Ambassador—meet the remarkable, one-of-a-kind James Hinchcliffe.

The self-proclaimed Mayor of Hinchtown adds the Grand Marshal of Capstone World to his esteemed resume. The Grand Marshal of Capstone World is here to help educate racing fans on the many great types of alternative energy sources that are accelerating the global shift to green energy. The energy landscape is changing, and today's solutions, driven by innovation and championed by the younger generation, are outpacing those of the boomer generation.

Today 40% of the population has grown up with climate change as part of their everyday life, while 60% sadly has not. Around the world, governments are tapping into renewable sources to fuel the growing demand for energy. The most common alternative energy sources include wind, solar, hydropower, fuel cells and microturbines.

These technologies are accelerating the global shift to green energy to save money, increase resiliency, and lower emissions.

Food & Beverage Manufacturing

Food & Beverage Manufacturing

Every hour of downtime at a food and beverage manufacturing plant can mean thousands of dollars in lost production. Capstone’s resilient Microturbine solutions are ideally suited for food and beverage manufacturing operations that require a reliable onsite power solution. Capstone customers benefit from clean electricity and thermal energy that can be harnessed for space heating, cooling, or generating steam.

Manufacturing

Manufacturing

Every hour of downtime at a manufacturing plant can mean thousands of dollars in lost production. Capstone MicroTurbines® are ideally suited for industrial combined heat and power applications that require large amounts of electricity and heat. The microturbines are fuel flexible and scalable from 15kW–10MW. Non-stop power means round-the-clock production and uncompromised performance.

Healthcare

Healthcare

When operating a mission-critical facility, power reliability is paramount. Disruption in a hospital’s power supply can compromise patient care, damage sensitive equipment, jeopardize research data, and adversely affect accreditation.

Hotels & Resorts

Hotels & Resorts

In addition to producing low-emission electricity onsite, many hotels use waste heat from Capstone MicroTurbines® to create heating and cooling to dramatically reduce energy bills and increase energy efficiencies. Today, luxury hotels and resorts worldwide rely on Capstone microturbines in combined cooling, heating, and power applications to maintain guest comfort and uphold five-star standards.

Landfills

Landfills

Waste materials buried in landfills biodegrade over time to produce methane, carbon dioxide, and other waste gases. Many sites flare these waste gases – or worse – vent them directly into the atmosphere. Capstone Renewable (CR) microturbines cleanly burn waste gases to generate renewable onsite electric and thermal power in a clean, economical, and environmentally beneficial way.

Multi-Residential / High-Rise

Multi-Residential / High-Rise

Capstone MicroTurbine® systems conserve energy and cut operational costs by creating two forms of energy – electricity and heat – which makes them ideal for combined cooling, heating, and power applications. For large energy consumers like residential buildings, onsite microturbines ensure an uninterrupted power supply at a rate more affordable than the power grid – an equation for comfortable residents and a manageable energy bill.

Clean-burning Capstone MicroTurbines® convert waste gases into renewable power. The Capstone Renewable (CR) microturbine line is designed to operate on methane gas and other waste gas fuels created from the treatment of domestic wastewater. Using Capstone microturbines, a wastewater treatment plant can harness the energy potential of waste biomass to generate reliable renewable power in a clean and cost effective way.

Oil & Gas

Oil & Gas

Perfect for both manned and unmanned platforms, Capstone MicroTurbines® offer rugged, low cost, dependable, set-it- and-forget-it operations that maximize platform performance and minimize downtime risk. Reliable Capstone microturbines operate on pipeline or unprocessed wellhead gas (economic or flare; sweet or up to 7% sour). Capstone microturbines are dry systems with no oil, lubricants, coolants, other hazardous materials, or even water, which eliminates the transport, storage, and costly hazmat spill/leakage issues of engine gensets.

Sporting Venues

Sporting Venues

Sporting venues can present unique challenges for operators. High intermittent peak loads, varying thermal loads make Capstone Green Energy solutions an ideal fit for a stadium’s needs. A properly sized solution provides cost reduction, reduced emissions and can be sized to carry critical loads in the case of a power failure. In addition to permanent solutions Capstone can provide temporary power solutions for all kinds of events, including concerts, special sporting events, emergency shelters. Systems can be configured to fit any circumstance and the fuel can be clean burning natural gas or renewable biogas.
