Icarus RT is one of three new startups to participate in the Shell GameChanger Accelerator program powered by NREL (GCxN). GCxN provides promising cleantech startups with technical resources to accelerate product commercialization while de-risking investment.

Waste Heat Recovery: Clean Power Generation through Improved Efficiency without Water

This article is a continuation of our series about various topics in renewable energy. Waste heat recovery systems collect excess thermal energy that would otherwise be exhausted or vented into the atmosphere. Some heat recovery systems cool hot exhaust...

Understanding Renewable Energy – An Introduction and Its Sources

Understanding Renewable Energy is not difficult. The first thing to understand is that Renewable Energy and its sources are basically all around us. This energy is found from the sun, wind, oceans, lakes and rivers. It is also found from plant growth, from...

Why Cogeneration is Good Energy Strategy

Cogeneration sometimes referred to as CHP (Combined Heat and Power) or energy recycling is an efficient and cost-effective method of capturing heat lost during the production of electricity and converting it into thermal energy because energy that would be...

High Administrative Cost of Solar Power Hampers Growth

The Department of Energy (DOE) has recently stated that up to half of the cost in solar power installations is due to administrative tasks. These administrative or soft costs are the costs associated with pe rmitting, zoning, metering, financing and...

We are so honored and excited to be featured in @InnovativeClimate July 7, 2021 as an exciting start-up for our low-cost power boosting systems for solar. Our prototype, Quartet, is a hybrid PV/Thermal solar-plus-storage cogeneration system that boosts PV power and generates hot water on-demand. Our innovative system will manage the disparity between daytime generation and peak water heating demand for multi-unit housing, commercial, industrial, and utility installations. Learn more at

“Full electrification” trends are gaining steam in places like California and Colorado where governments are forcing the elimination of natural gas appliances. Eliminating natural gas water heating provides Icarus a tremendous opportunity to install Quartet systems across the US!

Among the top 10 US cities for Solar PV Installed Per Capita, 3 California cities made the cut: #SanDiego #SanJose & #Riverside Top US cities for Total Solar PV Installed, #LosAngeles SanDiego & #SanJose We’re proud to be based in a city that is committed to green, clean energy!

Progress Update! In 2018 We installed a quartet system at UC San Diego. Fast forward 3 years and in 2021 we are ready to install 2 commercial-scale prototypes at Paolmar Community College and UCSD! Stay tuned for more exciting updates! The future is green!
