Heliocon seeks heliostat cost reduction to $50 per square meter

In an international effort to drive down the cost of heliostats used in tower CSP, three research groups have launched the Heliostat Consortium (HelioCon). In this effort, the US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) was joined by partners at Sandia National Laboratories and the Australian Solar [...]

A Novel Concentrated Solar Power Heliostat Goes from Lab to Market in Just 5 Years

It is rare for an innovation in Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) to go from the lab to commercial in just 5 years. The biggest obstacle to advancing potential cost-cutting improvements in novel CSP technologies is getting them deployed in commercial projects. Risks are high when every CSP plant must be [...]

SolarReserve enters manufacturing deal for Australia Concentrated Solar Power project

Australian concentrated solar power (CSP) technology firm Heliostat SA has teamed up with California-based SolarReserve to produce tracking mirrors for the latter’s 150-MW Aurora plant in South Australia. The parties have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) under which they will work together on the development of plans and [...]

Concentrated Solar Power heliostat innovations set to deliver big cost reductions

Concentrated solar power is still in an early-enough stage of maturity that even small breakthroughs in the design and operation of heliostats can slash associated electricity costs. Heliostats typically account for one-third to one-half of the initial capital cost of a new CSP field. Therefore, it is no surprise [...]
