Methanol pioneers

Rolling out the Methanol Economy since 2002

Silent-Power AG is a group of CleanTech companies based in Cham, Switzerland. Our mission is to accelerate the energy transition: making it affordable, climate-neutral and better for us and nature with renewable methanol. Founded in 2002 by Prof. Dr. Urs A. Weidmann, Silent-Power is pioneering the role of renewable methanol in the global energy transition after the Nobelprize winning vision of George A. Olah. George A. Olah's vision was that Methanol is the most suitable energy carrier to replace fossil fuels in combustion engine technology due to its ability to be distributed safely, replace fossil fuels in existing combustion technologies and its ability to store hydrogen produced from renewable energy sources. Our team of engineers has developed the unique decentralised ECONIMO mini power plants, followed by stationary & mobile heat generators and a stationary power generator, all fired with methanol. After proving the ECONIMO concept plant in 2016, we’ve been working on commercializing the product to bring a sustainable Heat and Power generation alternative to our customers. The team continues developing new Methanol applications for mobility, industry and residential purposes.
