New CSP startup backed by Bill Gates is claimed to be useable for industrial purposes

CSP is the abbreviation of concentrated solar power and stands for the technology that is used a large field of flat, sun-tracking mirrors called heliostats to reflect and concentrate sunlight onto a receiver on the top of a tower. It also notes that in conventional CSP plants the tower is surrounded by heliostats 

Heliogen, a startup backed by Bill Gates, claims that its CSP plant is equipped with a machine learning-based monitoring system, which optimally controls the heliostats. In this way, the high temperature of 1000 degrees Celsius can be reached, which is high enough to utilize in industrial processes such as cement and steel manufacturing.

According to CleanTechnica, the released prototype image with no supporting additional material shows a tower with a concentrated point of high temperature roughly 55 feet or 17 meters off the ground. The mirror array is in the range of 16,000 square feet or 1,500 square meters to achieve about 1000 degrees Celsius.

The constructed prototype has the potential to realize but there are some technical problems with it. The story continues in the next post…
