Nobody will license a process that delivers only a COP between 1.5..2. Either they have something better or they have to refill their tank.
That is the COP SRI saw in their independent replication...which they say is very conservative, but Godes claims they get 4 in their own lab. They do have some OEM's already. If you read this clip carefully though, it does not sound as if they are able to harness enough excess heat to start the commercialization process yet...which supports what you say:
"Canada and South Korea are already leveraging this proprietary system by preparing the market for reliable low-cost thermal energy."
