Our maintenance-free solution cleverly generates electricity with high performance optics and with highly efficient and endurable ADAM CPV modules (1). The power can be stored cheaply for several months in hydrogen or artificial methane gas (P2G) and then converted back into electricity at any time by means of fuel cells or gas turbines (2).
Our conception of a 24/7 Solar Power plant was that it could function without inefficient mirror systems, without miles-long pipelines, without steam turbines, without power generators, without oversized thermal storage tanks and without expensive battery storage systems. Furthermore, we focused on protecting the optics against environmental influences such as dust and sand, whereby the cleaning of the collectors should be carried out without water. So that the O&M costs could be kept to a minimum and the solar system would ensure a daily 100 percent yield.
We have succeeded in creating a highly efficient solar power plant that can generate electricity significantly less than 1 US cent/kWh in the sunniest regions of the world.
Expensive was yesterday.
