A thermochemical energy storage and mechanical energy converter system utilizing a turbine. The system has a power or discharge phase, and a reactivate or charge phase. In the power phase ammonia gas is released by CaCl2-8NG3, expanded in a turbine and combined with ZnCl2 to form ZnCl2-NG3. In an example of the reactivate phase ammonia gas is released by ZnCl2-NH3 and added to CaCl2-NH3 to form CaCl2-8NH3.
