ADI Thermal retains a lean talented technical team with over 50 years (combined) engineering experience in the fields of aerodynamics, automotive, acoustics, computing, and chemistry . The team members are 15 year veterans of design, build and test of thermal storage systems and heat engines. The technical team is balanced by 14 years of executive experience in business strategy and program management with a track record of significant organization contribution
In the area of new product development, there is no other quality as critical as innovation. ADI Thermal has developed an affordable small Stirling Engine Genset that boasts an efficiency that exceeds that of large scale turbines, and yet it is quiet enough to install within the community. This enabling technology will bring the advent of Distributed Power Generation as a new thriving industry by providing rapidly deployable power generation capacity to support economic and population growth. Over the years, the people at ADI have demonstrated time and again this ability to innovate and improve over current mainstream technologies; a quality that will continue to lead to future profitable products.
Far too often, great technologies fail because they faced a mature market full of advanced competitors. ADI Thermal is entering a market that is still young and that cries out for what ADI has to offer. Centralized power generation, while having a scale based efficiency that is impressive, requires a massive delivery system (the grid) which is inefficient, expensive to install and maintain, and vulnerable to earthquake and wind damage. Burgeoning populations, urban sprawl, and the growth of industry create new power demand that is often hindered by the centralized power industries inability to rapidly adapt. Distributed power generation could easily expand to fill this huge market niche, IF it possessed a product that met all the requirements. ADI Thermals Dual Shell Stirling Engine Genset is that product. It is rapidly deployable equipment that produces affordable power, quietly where and when it is needed. It is an enabling technology in a young, growing market with product and operating cost advantages over its competition.
