Moser Energy Systems Emissions Catalysts


At Moser Energy Systems, one of our biggest strategic goals is to differentiate ourselves from others when it comes to generator services, particularly in the oil and gas industry. Moreover, we want to create clean energy systems that are, in fact, even cleaner than power grids. 

To do this, we created our own emissions catalyst that monitors engine emissions so that users know that their system is always operating at a fraction of the EPA limit. This means that when a customer buys our products, they know that they’re getting the best results in terms of emissions performance, but they also know that they’re getting a system that will alert them when they’re getting out of compliance.

This innovation is vital in this day and age, and it comes about amid the ever-evolving debate of fossil fuel vs. green energy. 

“When you look out into the landscape, there are two schools of thought,” said Darrin Moorman, the Senior Vice President of Innovation and Business Development for Moser Energy Systems. “One is that we have to go all green energy. And then there seems to be another that says we’ve got to go all fossil energy, and, for whatever reason, there’s nothing in between. It’s like those two things can’t exist at the same time. But they can. And I’ve got news for you: they have to.” 

Moorman said the reason the two types of energy have to coexist is that they do, in fact, work together in many cases, such as with the emissions catalyst. 

“We can’t transition to 100 percent renewable energy without the benefit of the base power that fossil energy can provide to you because you can’t do everything with batteries,” he said. “So, we wanted to provide a hybrid system that had the ability to integrate renewables, but that also made very good use of fossil energy for that base load power. But that base load power was even cleaner than your plugin power that you get at your house.” 

Moser Energy Systems is leading the way in providing diversified energy solutions, whether it’s via our natural gas generators, our Hybrid Generator (which reduces emissions by 50% and fuel consumption by 40%), or our emissions catalyst.

“Moser Energy Systems has designed a system that not only reduces the greenhouse gas emissions from power, making it cleaner than the grid – it also monitors and records the amounts of emissions that the system is emitting so that users can do their own calculation on the carbon intensity of the energy that they’re buying. It’s not a projection; it’s a real data analysis that’s looking at the system 24/7, real-time. So, users can see continuously how many emissions their power system is providing.” 

This emissions catalyst also provides a wealth of benefits when it comes to EPA regulations, permitting processes, and more. 

“Using Wyoming as an example, it’s a rule that you have to go and test your system to make sure that it’s compliant,” Moorman stated. “You also have to perform what I’ll call ‘passive monitoring.’ It doesn’t look at the emissions; it looks at exhaust gas, temperatures, and things like that and then assumes that the catalyst is working effectively there. What our system will do is eliminate the need to have that additional testing. So, when you think about your carbon intensity, the fact that you’ve got to drive a truck out there to do the actual test itself- that’s emissions too, by the way – you’ve eliminated the need for that as well. Hypothetically, if you’re operating line power and your carbon intensity is 1.8 tons per megawatt hour, and the Moser solution is half of that, you should be able to claim that carbon reduction as self-generation. Now, that hasn’t happened yet, but that’s where you’ll really begin to provide an incentive to operators because it will be another profit center for them in the carbon market as that catches up.” 

As Moser Energy Systems continues to evolve and innovate, we want to utilize the best of both worlds when it comes to energy production while also remaining as ‘clean’ as possible while doing it. This new emissions catalyst will help operators do just that while also saving them money in the long run. 

“For too long, people have looked at oil and gas production as the evil ones, in terms of the environment,” Moorman said. “American oil production is the cleanest in the world. Moser wants to continue to push that even further so that when we have the discussion about fossil energy, that conversation could be better informed to understand that if you really look at the carbon intensity of our systems – as opposed to the grid, as opposed to even some of the renewable projects that are created by coal-burning power plants in China that are very dirty in their production – when you look at the equation, Moser Energy Systems wants to be in the front of that. Moser wants to provide an alternative to dirty grid power but also provide a more reliable enhancement to renewable energy, merging those two systems, renewables and fossil-based energy, together. That’s the best way that we’ll find energy security and clean energy for the future.” 



Moser Energy Systems’ power solutions are helping to gain a competitive advantage for many industries and applications.  By using our generators partnered with our HybridGen technology, Moser’s customers are able to achieve sustained, or highly responsive, peaking power that allows them to work more efficiently while also reducing noise and producing fewer greenhouse gas emissions than conventional generation options. For those reasons and more, Civitas Resources utilized Moser Energy Systems to help power a project at their Enright facility in Weld County, Colorado. 

Moser Energy Systems’ HybridGen allowed an 11L generator to replace two 22L generators, saving space and providing more efficient power for a low-pressure vapor recovery unit on an oil pipeline.

“The unit catches vapors that accumulate in the oil tank,” said Dwight Ross, Senior Electrical Foreman with Civitas Resources. “These vapors come off of the oil itself because the natural gas just eventually settles out. So instead of somebody opening a thief hatch on top of the tank and letting the vapors escape into the atmosphere, we would capture them and put them back into the pipeline.” 

Located about 2,000 feet from the city limits, this facility was unable to run on utility, or “line” power for operations, so it relied on the natural gas power of Moser’s HybridGen 11L generator.

It wasn’t just the efficiency of the HybridGen that made it a perfect fit for Civitas; it also potentially saved project time because the HybridGen reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 50%.

Weld County, according to Shannon Van Dok an EHSR Contractor for Civitas, is one of the strictest counties in Colorado when it comes to gas emissions, so it was imperative that the company utilized green technology. 

In order to operate natural gas generators or any type of generator, operators must submit an application to obtain a permit that ensures users are able to meet certain emission limits set by the state of Colorado. 

“Oftentimes, you submit a permit to the state, and then it takes anywhere from six months to a year to get through the approval process,” Van Dok stated. “Then, you meet with an engineer and go over all of the calculations and assumptions, and then they give you final approval to operate. That’s not always the case, though, and this one was fairly easy to apply for. We submitted the application, and we were approved to operate the same day.” 

One of the big reasons for that is because of the low emissions of the HybridGen.

In the state of Colorado, when it comes to gas emissions, air regulators focus primarily on Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), Nitrous Oxide, and Carbon Monoxide. 

“The emission factors of a typical natural gas-powered unit, operating at 300 horsepower, are generally pretty high,” Van Dok said. “And you have to often use multiple catalysts on a unit in order to get it down to the state emission factor that is required when you file a general permit. But what I noticed was that the emission limits on the HybridGen unit didn’t require those excessive catalysts. It was hardly emitting anything. So, comparing the HybridGen to another unit, there was a lot less control requirements because the unit was so efficient, right off the bat.”

HybridGen technology also allows for a quieter environment because it requires fewer generators. 

“Our main goal with this project was to reduce the noise in the area and to be able to bring in a smaller generator,” Ross stated. “This unit did that, and it absolutely performed up to our expectations. Our company was very happy with the initial run, and we’re looking forward to putting the HybridGen on more sites when we need it.” 

In addition to the actual units that did the work, both Ross and Van Dok said it was Moser Energy Systems’ customer service that impressed them the most. 

“Moser Energy Systems’ customer service was great,” Van Dok said. “I had a really close relationship with Jay, and we worked really well together. He and his whole team were always responsive, whether they were in the office or in the field. They were able to provide what I needed. From the beginning, everything was laid out for us, and then, after the unit was deployed, it was essentially hands-off. We’ve used plenty of Moser’s generators in the past, so it was already set up to be an easy relationship with open communication. But it was a great relationship, and that team is one of my favorites to work with.” 

Moser Energy Systems prides itself not only on its equipment but on the relationships it develops with clients and partners. The HybridGen technology allows smaller generators to provide efficient, effective natural gas energy. It produces less noise and fewer emissions, and it is a valuable unit that can bridge carbon-based energy sources with clean energy sources in various types of situations, from remote operational energy to critical power installations, microgrids, utility demand response applications, and more. With Moser Energy Systems, our technology, and our customer service make us the ideal partner to provide power solutions to any project you may have.

Moser Energy Systems Bitcoin Mining


As a diversified distributed energy company, Moser Energy Systems is an industry leader in power generation. Leadership in anything requires continued innovation, and that is exactly what Moser Energy Systems has done in its most recent partnership with a company that specializes in Bitcoin Mining. 

Bitcoin is a form of cryptocurrency, and Bitcoin mining is how new Bitcoins are introduced into circulation, and it involves a complex series of transactions that are powered by blockchains. In order to add a “block,” Bitcoin miners must solve complicated math equations using powerful computers. 

“We mine Bitcoin using natural gas generators as the power source,” a spokesperson for the company partnering with Moser Energy Systems stated. “The number one competitive advantage in Bitcoin mining is finding access to inexpensive power.” 

To get inexpensive sources of gas, miners look for high flare intensity areas and stranded or challenged wells, which oftentimes means remote locations. This is where Moser comes in.

“We contact these producers, and we negotiate a deal to buy their natural gas,” the spokesperson said. “So, we put these Moser Energy Systems generators onsite to generate tremendous amounts of power at the drill site, and then we build out data centers from shipping containers and fill them with Bitcoin mining computers.”

“Moser has been a phenomenal partner for us,” the spokesperson beamed. “They have had tremendously good uptime and when it comes to very interesting and unique problems that we have at different sites, they’ve been very helpful troubleshooting and figuring out exactly what we need to do when it comes to the right configuration of engines to build out a site exactly how we need it so that we can get as close to that hundred percent uptime as possible. It’s not very often that you’ve got the Senior VP of the company answering phone calls and troubleshooting annoying gas flow problems on the weekend.” 
Moser Energy Systems has helped many Bitcoin mining operators power their cryptocurrency operations. As the world’s demand for expert partners grows, Moser Energy Systems will meet the challenges head-on.

Moser Energy HybridGen System


Moser Energy Systems’ innovative hybrid technology is an energy solution that combines battery energy storage and inverter technologies with engine-driven generators. This system doubles the capacity of the generator, which allows it to operate more efficiently and more effectively while producing fewer greenhouse gas emissions, reducing fuel burn and noise pollution. 

Moser Energy’s proprietary HybridGen System consists of a battery inverter module (named BISON), coupled to a gas generator. The benefits of the system are emissions reductions of up to 50%, with concomitant fuel burn reductions of up to 40%.

Besides oilfield artificial lift applications, Moser’s HybridGen System is also ideal for other applications, such as mining, construction and remote EV charging, and more. 

Recently, Moser’s BISON was deployed on a tower crane application in Southern California to rave reviews from the construction company in terms of power delivery and reduced fuel burn, emissions, and noise.

“Moser Energy Systems has long been the leader in power generation; not just in the oil & gas realm, but in all types of areas,” said Darrin Moorman, Senior Vice President of Innovation and Business Development. “The Moser Energy Systems name is synonymous with reliable, deployable, alternative energy in every type of industry. And our HybridGen technology is just another example of how we can provide innovative energy solutions to a wide range of customers.”
