New DOE solar technologies funding for early stage Concentrated Solar Power direct heat

The US DOE announces new 2023 solar technologies funding of $200,000 initially for early stage CSP/CST innovations, and up to $1.1 million on proof of feasibility. On December 12, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released new funding for the Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) Phase [...]

At SolarPACES 2022, Heliogen talks up Solar Heat Efficiency for Mines

The entire opening plenary of this year’s SolarPACES Conference focused on delivering solar heat directly to decarbonize industry. With 30% of global emissions emitted by fossil fuels to heat industrial processes; this need is well understood, but the emergency is now exacerbated by Europe’s very immediate need to replace gas [...]

Solar Heat to Decarbonize Industries gets $13 Million Boost from DOE

DOE Announces $24 Million Awards; $10.7 Million for Gen-3 CSP and $13.2 to Advance Concentrated Solar-Thermal Technologies for Industrial Decarbonization. DOE also Releases Strategic Roadmap to Enhance Ability to Harness Solar Power, Lower Costs for Mirrors used in Concentrating Solar Power Plants. Concentrated Solar Thermal to Decarbonize Industries The U.S. [...]

New Strategies Needed to Sell Solar Heat for Mining

Direct solar heat – Concentrated Solar Thermal (CST) – is a potential renewable resource for replacing heat from burning fossil fuels for industries like mining, as its technologies generate heat directly from sunlight at anywhere from 150°C to 1500°C. But lack of information on both sides stands in the way [...]

SolarPACES Conference, Heliogen Introduces Solar Heat at 1 cent/kWh

Well before Bill Gross started Idealab (which has launched 150 startups and counting) to “look for big problems in the world, invent technological solutions, then build companies to fix them” he was doodling designs for the solar thermal mirrors that reflect concentrated sunlight onto a solar receiver, instead of attending [...]
