200 Years of Stirling Engines

Agape international is supporting the Non-Conventional Energy Development Center in Pyongyang in the development of small Stirling engines for domestic and village use. The Stirling engine is a heat engine that operates with almost any heat source and provides mechanical work. Small engines like these can help alleviate the energy shortage for the population. We have planned a visit for this year.

The chief engineer, in particular, wants to meet with other Stirling engine manufacturers in Europe. We are working on the invitation letter, the visa applications and the visiting program.

We have already received helpful support from the work group Stirling-Motor in Munich that has been dealing with this subject matter for 30 years. Because Stirling engines are celebrating their 200th anniversary this year this topic is receiving additional impetus.
