SOLAR TRACKING HELIOSTAT - Graphite Energy
Graphite Energy uses high purity graphite to economically store solar energy at utility scale. This renewable energy technology enables energy (steam or electricity) to be available on-demand. Kennovations designed and developed a high quality solar tracking parabolic heliostat for reflecting and concentrating the suns rays onto a target for energy storage (heliostats form the solar field as part of the solar-thermal tower system). The highly accurate design of the heliostat is engineered to meet demanding tolerance levels and to withstand harsh weather and arid environments. The heliostat has been designed for mass production and will support mirrored glass or alternative reflective mediums. The product design achieves economies of scale through material selections, flat-pack transport efficiency and modern on-site assembly processes.
