Stirling Heat Engine to Stirling Heat Pump : How is it done?

​Stirling engines have been around since the nineteenth century. They are an elegantly simple way of generating power using temperature differentials, but nobody ever found a way to make them efficient enough for wide scale use. Now a UK company has developed a heat pump system based on the principles of the Stirling Engine, but with some ingenious adaptations, using no HFC refrigeration gases and with a 30% saving in energy costs compared to existing systems.
