Japanese co. IHI announces tiny turbine generator

Propane-powered, the turbine itself is small enough to fit in your hand (!)

The whole electricity generating unit is only about the size of a suitcase.

It’s very cool-running (exhaust temp 70ºC), so it’s probably also extremely efficient, and it can be setup to use kerosene or light oil as fuel.

“The company expects that the gas turbine generator unit will be used as a charger for personal devices such as mobile devices as well as a power source for a robot.”

I’m sure if it works as well as hoped, they’ll scale it up for different purposes. I’d like one about 2 hp please. Then I’ll just rip out the old gas furnace and away we go!
