SunRing™   |   Advanced wireless heliostat

We are now testing refined prototypes of an advanced 27m  heliostat that is completely wireless, quick-to-assemble, easily-installed, and highly cost-competitive. 

 

Built on our innovative geared azimuth tracker, the heliostat's key advantages include:

  • Material-efficient steel space frame backing structure (patent pending)

  • Rapidly-installed non-excavated shallow foundations

  • Low-cost, fully-wireless drives and tracking controller

These innovations will greatly reduce the cost and timeline associated with solar field construction in new tower plants including our Dispatchable Solar Power plant design.

This promising new technology is being developed and tested under cost-shared funding support from the U.S. SunShot Initiative.  For more information please see the SunShot project profile or contact us.
