Our Solutions

Find the Right Carbon-Free Option

Decarbonizing industry requires different approaches for different operational realities. Heliogen uses a modular design to turn solar thermal energy into a variety of energy inputs needed for your industrial processes. 

Heat

Industrial Green Steem

A robust steam solution

For organizations looking to decarbonize industrial process steam for used in extended hour operations, we provide a carbon-free alternative. This ready-to-deploy solution lowers fossil fuel dependence to help you achieve your climate targets. At the same time, it mitigates exposure to fuel price volatility for improved margins.

How it works

Our steam offering uses a Direct Steam Generating Receiver to produce steam up to 300 °C at 100 bar pressure. For daytime operations, the steam can be discharged directly to the industrial processes. The steam can be sent to Long Duration Thermal Energy Storage and dispatched during nighttime hours. Steam delivery pressure can be adjusted to match your needs.

Generate Clean Power

Green electricity

For organizations with round-the-clock power needs, our Hybrid Power solution combines concentrating solar energy generation, solar photovoltaics and thermal storage with a steam Rankine cycle or supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) power block depending on requirements. The resulting dispatchable electricity will power industrial facilities, data centers, mining operations, and other energy-intensive needs. 

Our solution

With a commercial-scale demonstration project in development, the power solution is being designed to deliver high capacity-factor renewable power with significantly reduced cost, water usage, equipment size, and plant footprint.

Solar Resources Map

Maximizing Solar Irradiance

The amount of direct sunlight that is available at a particular location (solar irradiance) determines how much energy Heliogen technology can generate. We work closely with customers to evaluate solar resource availability at their location to optimize the design and size of our system for efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Policies & Incentives

Leveraging Support at Local and National Levels

Public and private incentives and local, state, and national funding can support renewable energy projects. Governments worldwide have implemented policies to support expansion, including subsidies, tax incentives, and renewable energy mandates. Heliogen’s team of experts can help you navigate decarbonization policies in your location.

More countries are aligning their policies for a net-zero future and providing incentives to companies to do their part in the climate change fight.

Australia

Australia has set a target of producing 50% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030. Australia has implemented several policies to support renewable energy, including feed-in tariffs, renewable energy certificates, and a renewable energy target.

Chile

Chile aims to produce 60% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2035 and has already made significant progress towards this goal. To support renewable energy, Chile has implemented several policies including tax incentives, renewable energy auctions, and net metering for small-scale renewable energy systems.

Spain

Spain has set a target of producing 74% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030, with an ultimate goal of 100% renewable energy by 2050. To support this, Spain has implemented several policies, including feed-in tariffs, tax incentives, and renewable energy auctions.

The US federal government has implemented several policies to support the development of a renewable energy economy. New programs sparked by the Inflation Reduction Act (2022) and earlier legislation will create long-term opportunities for industrial producers looking to update their facilities. The US currently generates 20+% of its energy from renewables, which will increase through tax incentives and credits.

The funding mechanisms and policies to support renewable energy vary across different states in the US. However, many states have implemented innovative financing mechanisms to support the growth of renewable energy and achieve a more sustainable future. These may include:

  • Loans
  • Grants
  • Cap-and-trade
  • Sustainable financing

Engaging locally for renewable energy policy execution and action on projects can bring several benefits, including:

Stronger Community Support: When renewable energy projects are developed in partnership with local communities, this creates opportunities to achieve stronger outcomes. Community collaboration can speed development timelines and boost public support.

Greater Expertise and Resources: Local government entities may have expertise and resources that can be used to support renewable energy projects. For example, local project planning and development staff, or access to local contractors who can help with project implementation.

Economic Advantages: Renewable energy projects can provide economic benefits to local communities, such as job creation and increased tax revenues. By engaging locally, renewable energy developers can help ensure that these benefits are realized by the local community.
