We are delighted to announce that the Stellio Heliostat has been included in the Solar Impulse list of “1000 solutions to change the world”, receiving the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label.
About Solar Impulse:
Following the success of the first solar flight around the world, Bertrand Piccard and the Solar Impulse Foundation have launched the second phase of their action: selecting #1000Solutions that can protect the environment in a profitable way, and presenting them to decision-makers to help them adopt more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies.
Stellio is an innovative cost-efficient heliostat developed by the Stellio Consortium led by sbp sonne. The Stellio Consortium consists of Ingemetal Solar, Masermic and sbp sonne. Stellio's first application is the Hami power plant using about 15,000 Stellio heliostats.
Heliostats are large moveable mirrors that reflect sunlight onto a receiver installed on top of a tower. They are a key component of solar thermal power plants that can deliver low-cost solar electricity 24/7 by storing energy as heat before using this heat to drive turbines whenever the electricity is needed.
