Glass Point


GlassPoint steam generators were designed to meet the needs of the oil and gas industry. They accept exactly the same feed water quality as an oilfield once through steam generator (OTSG) and they generate exactly the same steam conditions. Particular attention has been paid to minimizing both capital costs and operating costs, bearing in mind the unique Health Safety and Environmental (HSE) requirements of the oilfield environment.
Graphite Energy - solar concentrator with storage
Graphite Energy was established in 2008 to develop and bring to market solar thermal receiver technology. The company is privately owned and is focused on development and supply of its principle product, the G1-SSR, which is a simple and robust solar superheater and storage receiver.


Solar Lite CSP power stations


Solarlite develops and builds decentralised solar thermal parabolic trough power plants (Concentrated Solar Power). For the first time worldwide, the company is applying direct steam generation commercially in a power plant. With the SL 4600, the company has successfully developed a parabolic trough collector made with a combination of glass fibre composite material and an efficient thin-film glass mirror.

Areva Solar
AREVA Solar, an AREVA subsidiary owned in its entirety by the Group, designs, manufactures and installs solar steam generators for the global power generation and industrial steam needs of its customers in a dependable, market-competitive and environmentally responsible manner. AREVA Solar serves a broad range of power and industrial steam customers, providing fully integrated solar thermal product offerings.


eSolar Concentrating Solar Power


eSolar designs and develops Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) projects that start at 46MW and are scalable to any size. eSolar power plant technology utilizes small, flat mirrors which track the sun with high precision and reflect the sun's heat to a tower-mounted receiver, which boils water to create steam. This steam powers a traditional turbine and generator to produce electricity.

Skyfuel Solar Thermal Power
SkyFuel, Inc. is a solar thermal power technology and service provider founded in 2007. SkyFuel solar collectors harness solar radiation to produce steam for electricity generation and industrial applications. The Company is a leading supplier of utility-scale concentrating solar power (CSP) systems.

Chromasun Micro-Concentrator


The Chromasun Micro-Concentrator is a high performance solar collector that uses the same technology as utility scale solar systems, except now in a much smaller package. It has been designed purposely for rooftop integration. The MCT is low profile, lightweight and has no external moving parts so it’s simple to mount and easy to maintain. Using a 25X Fresnel reflector optic the MCT generates temperatures up to 400°F (200°C).

Heliofocus Concentrator

All HelioFocus-developed solar applications use the same source of solar energy source: the dish, receiver, and heat logistics elements are used identically for the different solutions and applications. This configuration enables high commonality in hardware, achieving better cost values in high volume manufacturing.


Solar Systems


The ultra-high efficiency concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) power generation system technology is based on the use of the company’s proprietary ‘Dense Array’ Convertor Technology which utilises the world’s highest efficiency triple junction (TJ) solar cells, capable of converting sunlight into electricity at around 40% efficiency. 

Brightsource Energy
BrightSource Energy, Inc. designs, develops, and deploys solar thermal technology to produce high-value electricity and steam for power, petroleum, and industrial-process markets worldwide.


Solarsphere CSP Technology

The Solarsphere technology was developed by the late Richard von Braun. It used thin film structures to form a concentrating mirror. Pictured is the 8 metre diameter unit being tested. The designed promised a very large, very cheap concentrating mirror.
Sunpulse Stirling Engine
The Sun pulse, a innovative water pump using solar concentrator and stirling engine. At the front of the pump is a solar collector; this reflects sunlight towards the middle where it heats up the front of a Stirling Engine. Sunvention's unique design of Stirling engine uses air at atmospheric pressure as the working fluid, and pulses at a slow 30-60 times per minute. The pump can be attached to a rotary pump, or as shown, connected to a hydraulic cylinder.

LightManufacturing System


LightManufacturing builds high performance heliostats (the H1 heliostat) and complete solar thermal manufacturing systems.  Their off-grid Solar Rotational Molding Systems make plastic parts with heat from the sun, without fossil fuels, for a savings of 10%-30% compared to traditional rotomolding.  LightManufacturing heliostat solar thermal systems also dry agricultural products, heat and light buildings, and generate steam.

SBP Dish/Stirling systems
The project involved the construction of two 50 kW dish/Stirling systems close to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia. These were the first large concentrators built using metal membrane technology, and they still are the largest dish/Stirling systems worldwide. The highly efficient Stirling motors were equipped for solar operation for the first time and a very innovative, state of the art drive and control system was developed.
