A 5 kWe cogeneration pellet boiler prototype system, designed and manufactured by Austrian company ÖkoFEN and featuring a Stirling engine from Qnergy has been launched onto the market.

According to the company, the biomass boiler is still under development and the first beta installations are expected before the end of the year to serve large residential and small to medium application requirements.

‘Five kW of electricity and higher allows us to tap into new markets for cogeneration that so far have been out of our scope,’ said ÖkoFEN founder and CEO Herbert Ortner, adding: ‘We are hoping to commercialise the product as fast as possible; the first pilot customers are expecting to take deliveries in the near future’.
