Z Group Energy (ZGE), head quartered in Coolidge, Arizona is an alternative, clean energy partnership engaged in development and design engineering for sealed geothermal manufacture of supercritical water to be used in electricity generation. Our patented method can produce electricity for nearly half the cost ($0.045/kWh) of natural gas fueled ($0.07/kWh) methods or conventional geothermal […]
09-12-2017: Can Supercritical Systems Significantly Increase Electricity Generation at Geothermal Power Plants Like The Geysers?
The answer is yes. Consider the Z Group Energy (ZGE) patented, sealed geothermal system which manufactures supercritical fluids, converting them to steam for use in electricity generation at costs nearly one-half that of current production costs. Using H2O as the heat carrying fluid, our patented system yields zero polluting emissions. Supercritical temperatures are obtained geothermally using […]
One cutting-edge development in electricity generation is the concept of employing nuclear reactors for heating water to supercritical temperatures, that is, above 374 °C; to drive steam turbines, in turn driving generators producing electricity. This potential use of nuclear energy in Supercritical-Water-Cooled Reactors (SCWR’s) has been studied for more than fifteen-years, in ten countries around […]
