Abstract

The primary reason for big popularity of the conversion of heat to electric power (about 70% of the total electricity production) has been the relatively low cost of fossil fuel sources (oil, coal, and natural gas) and the reasonably high system efficiencies that can be achieved owing to the high temperature differentials created by fossil-fuel combustion. Numerous sources indicate that the use of fossil fuels for power production must reduce to the level of sustainability, which means that alternative sustainable and environmentally responsible methods must be investigated and commercialized.
