Explore our library of global case studies to learn how Capstone microturbines are aligning with businesses across various markets to improve their energy consumption through on-site power production. Since 1988, Capstone has shipped thousands of clean-and-green microturbines to customers around the world, logging millions of cumulative operating hours in the field. After all, Capstone is committed to improving the efficiency of the world’s energy infrastructure and reducing pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions.
Powered with batteries charged by an onboard Capstone C65 MicroTurbine, the ECObus combines the maneuverability of a standard bus and the on-the-fly continuous power of an electric trolley or streetcar. "Urban transport must be green, comfortable and economical. That's why when creating a new ecobus, we drew our attention to Capstone microturbines. Microturbines enable increased mileage without refueling (the reduction of fuel consumption reaches up to 40%). Absence of oil and cooling fluids resulted in simpler maintenance and extended maintenance intervals, which significantly reduced our operational costs. At the same time, ecological features of microturbines ensure a low noise level and low NOx and CO emissions. Ecobuses obtain sheer benefits for use in resort areas and densely populated cities where ecological features of transport are of the highest priority."
