SolarReserve’s heliostat tracking technology is derived from the control system deployed on the International Space Station which orbits the earth 17 times a day and is required to continually articulate its solar panels to capture energy from the sun to keep its power systems operational.
The accuracy of this tracking technology is critical to ensuring energy reflected by the heliostats is collected through the molten salt in the receiver and not “spilled” and wasted. SolarReserve’s heliostat innovation areas include nimble structure design, high precision and efficient drive systems, ultra-light and high reflectivity mirror facets, and various heliostats and collector field control, power and communication systems. In addition to design, SolarReserve has built engineering units that have been tested and validated at the Sandia National Laboratories in the U.S. and at Plataforma Solar de Almería (PSA) in Spain. From these efforts, SolarReserve has forged strategic partnerships with key suppliers and engineering firms.
