Yakov Regelman

Dr. Regelman, Executive Vice President and Chief Engineer of The Stanton Group, is an experienced engineer specializing in power plant design, system integration, and technology innovation and development.
He has 40 years of experience in the analysis, development, adjustment, and testing of various types of fossil fuel, nuclear, and renewable energy power plants, including their equipment and systems.
He has extensive experience with the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology that will be used to convert the heat from GTI’s underground radiators into electric power. He led the team that designed and implemented Stanton’s proprietary and patented technology that is the industry’s highest efficiency ORC technology for exploiting higher temperature geothermal and waste heat, which can be used in those locations where GTI’s technology is used to harvest energy from higher temperature underground reservoirs. He led the design teams for applications of this and of conventional ORC to gas pipeline compressor stations in Eastern Europe and China, to waste heat from gas turbines and diesel engines in small power plants, and to waste heat from cement plants.
He has led teams designing: renovations for large nuclear power plants; interim storage of spent nuclear fuel in the Ukraine; utility scale combined cycle power plants using waste steel mill gases; and international large scale power transmission grids.
He has a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and a Master of Science from the Ship Design University, Leningrad, USSR, the Soviet Union’s leading power engineering institute. He has numerous scientific publications and more than thirty patented inventions in the field of propulsion, power plants, and new energy technology.
