Heliac’s concentrated solar heat (CSH) panels produce >350C heat in utility-scale at unsubsidized costs below any other source of energy. It’s the only renewable energy source suited for industrial process heat (e.g. food, paper, beverages, and more).
A new, but proven solution
Heliac’s solution taps into the same well-performing systems as legacy CSP, but at a fraction of their costs. Instead of using heavy mirrors that are expensive to produce, install, and maintain, Heliac uses a light-weight, inexpensive transparent lens. The lens works like a giant magnifying glass.
Pollution from open fire cooking causes 4.3 million deaths each year. In addition, the use of wood for cooking contributes to extensive environmental degradation caused by logging. Heliac has developed an inexpensive, efficient, solar-based alternative.
Power plants burn natural gas, coal and biomass to produce heat. Heliac has developed a clean alternative based on solar. The solution is so efficient and affordable it makes solar thermal profitable almost anywhere in the world. Without subsidies. Also in Denmark.
Heliac’s solution is based on the invention of an inexpensive lens that focuses the sunlight in the same way as a large magnifying glass. Based on the lens, Heliac builds modular panels each supplying 12 kW of heat. Lendemarke Fjernvarmeværk, owned by Europe’s largest privately owned energy company, E.ON., is the first customer of a […]
