Cyclone Power
External burner/heater for stirling piston hot side, so can basically burn anything that won't clog the hot side heat exchanger. Was going to be demoed on EATER, some kind of land foraging robot that uses available biofuels (grass/sticks it can pick up) to self-power

Welcome | NRG
Will try a SolarCity lease model to get businesses to use Dean Kaman's Beacon 10 natural gas stirling engine CHP generator.

Thermoacoustic Stirling Engine
Interesting take on stirling engines, setup as a solar thermal thermoacoustic stirling engine, basically a solid state engine. They also do linear alternator free piston type stirling engines too.

ReGen Power Systems - Low Temperature Waste Heat Stirling
Some sort of high efficiency low heat/waste heat technology. They have 250 degree waste heat engine designed for industrial waste heat, and a 100 degree version designed to mate with steam condensers.

CHP Engines - Cleanergy
Interesting home use stirling engine for CHP applications, which can run on natural gas. Also have a solar heat powered version too.

Have a relatively interesting free piston based stirling engine generator (hot side 1200C, cold side ambient air)(Not that great efficiency but decent). If this was modular, could use this with non-solar heat sources? Also, may be an optimized thermoacoustic resonator?

WhisperGenTM heat and power systems
Interesting quiet generator for smallish yachts. 800W, but near silent and has decent fuel efficiency, but a major aim is CHP applications, since it provides enough heat that you might be able to run an adsorption cooler for the refrigerator/freezer rather than an electric compressor, and the heat is also applicable for hot water and radiant heating, which is nice in colder climates.

Precer's Bioracer: Off-Road Vehicle Runs on Wood Pellets
A wood pellet furnace, stirling generator driven series hybrid electric ATV. I suppose this is for the semi-serious survivalist (I say semi only because if civilization collapses, it will be next to impossible to repair the thing should a critical electrical component fail, and the battery would fail eventually regardless)

Boeing Licenses XR700 Solar Power Technology To Stirling Energy Systems
I guess the plan is to use SES stirling engines to do cooling/energy recovery on the backside of the XR700 panels, as a mixed hybrid two stage direct electric and heat engine electric system? The XR700 doesn't seem to use a reflector concentrator like SES systems do, so the stirling engine has to be back mounted...
