Heliogen’s modular solution is designed to replace the use of fossil fuels in demanding industrial processes. By combining AI-controlled concentrating solar thermal technology with long-duration thermal energy storage, Heliogen can provide dispatchable renewable energy for heat and energy-intensive operations.
Aligning with Your Energy Transition Strategy
Decarbonize Heavy-Duty Industrial Processes
With over 50% of global greenhouse gas emissions coming from industry and transportation, transitioning these sectors to renewable energy is an immediate imperative. Heliogen starts with industrial-grade solutions for process steam and transportation-grade green hydrogen, with a goal to beat the price of fossil fuels. By concentrating solar thermal energy and storing it, we give industry an efficient, dispatchable alternative.
Capacity factor makes Heliogen more cost effective than other renewable alternatives.
Heliogen aims to make clean energy more economical than fossil fuels.
By addressing intermittency, we have designed a solution that can deliver, dispatchable energy from sunlight.
Clean, Renewable Steam
Million metric tons of greenhouse gas emitted in the US to generate industrial steam.
Our technology cost effectively supplies carbon-free industrial steam
up to 300 °C.
Kilograms/year of fuel-cell, vehicle-grade hydrogen from a Heliogen hydrogen module.
Each module can produce enough green hydrogen fuel to supply a fleet of 18 heavy-duty trucks covering approximately 5600 miles (9000 km) per day.

Advanced Concentrating Solar Thermal Energy
Our patented, breakthrough technology uses AI, cameras, and advanced computer vision software to precisely align an array of small mirrors that reflect and concentrate sunlight on a receiver tower. During the daytime, the receiver generates heat which is transferred to thermal energy storage and supplies continuous process steam up to 300 °C. Green hydrogen fuel can be produced with the addition of an electrolyzer. Heliogen’s modular solar thermal energy plant can be located anywhere with sufficient sunlight, generating off-grid green energy for on-demand use.
