Heliogen and Athena Technology Acquisition Corporation announce business combination

Heliogen is combining with the SPAC Athena Technology, one of the few so-called blank-check companies led by women. Founded in 2013, Heliogen uses mirrors that are positioned with artificial intelligence to reflect sunlight at a small receiver, generating an intense heat. That sunlight can be collected and processed to [...]

Concentrated solar power might just revolutionize the energy sector as we know it

When most people think of solar power, they picture rows and rows of photovoltaic solar panels on the roof of a building. But photovoltaic power is terribly inefficient — the mining and refining of the elements required for daily human life are incredibly costly to the environment. Fortunately, there [...]

Idealab Founder Bill Gross’ Plan To Solve The Mother Of All Quandaries

Bill Gates calls it the 75% Problem. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from power plants only account for 25% of total, and electrical generation is one source of GHG emissions for which cheap renewable sources are well-suited. If we don’t radically reduce the remaining 75% of emissions, we could carpet Arizona [...]

Sun could be Middle East’s biggest export by 2030, says Bill Gates-backed company founder

By the end of the next decade, the Middle East’s biggest export could be the sun, not oil, according to the developer of a new technology that aims to turn solar power into fuel. Last month – and for the first time commercially – a new Bill Gates-backed clean energy [...]
