Gaia Transport Corporation Plans to Develop Cogeneration Vehicle Charging System

Marietta, GA - Gaia Transport Corporation (GTC) has announced plans to develop a Cogeneration Vehicle Charging System for use in charging electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. The patent-pending system enables vehicle owners to generate electricity at super-high efficiency and low cost.

Most electricity in the US is generated by burning coal. On average, coal burning plants are only 32.8 % efficient, and generate large quantities of CO2 and other pollutants. Natural gas fired plants are somewhat more efficient and cleaner. But still more efficient is the GTC cogeneration system. In this system, a home's natural gas supply fuels an internal combustion engine driving a generator. The GTC system collects what would otherwise be waste heat from this engine, and uses it to heat domestic water. Only 10-15% of the heat value of the fuel escapes the system, providing an overall system efficiency of 85-90%. This high efficiency combined with the low cost of natural gas means that "home brewed" electricity from the GTC system costs less than half as much as buying electricity from the grid and produces less CO2.


The GTC system lets you have your cake and eat it too: cheap power that is environmentally sound.
