Bill Gates-Backed Startup Plans To Replace Fossil Fuels With Solar Energy

Heliogen has managed to concentrate solar energy at impressive temperatures higher than 1832F

During the take-over process from fossil fuel, solar energy is in need of sufficient heat not only for power generation purposes but also for the replace of totally industrial processes. Even the 1049F of the most effective solar concentrator systems cannot cut it. However, there is a solution "Heliogen" which can finally resolve the problem. Backed up by Bill Gates, the startup Heliogen has managed to concentrate solar energy at impressive temperatures higher than 1832F, making the produced energy appealing enough to utilize instead of fossil fuels during industrial steel or cement production.

The key to the success of solar energy production this way is through a computer vision, which is a type of AI to adjust a huge array of mirrors so that they can reflect sunlight right on a specific target. This will prove as a new accurate level that has more possibilities as compared to other measurements.

There will be a long journey for the technology to be utilized in real life. As stated by Bill Gross, the company founder, Heliogen has achieved a new record of heat levels in just the first day of the plant’s operation. Though spectacular it may seem, in fact, the technology cannot be immediately transferable to a real-world solution.

The effects of the "breakthrough" are enormous.

However, the effects of the "breakthrough" are enormous. As noted by Gates, industrial processes account for up to 20% of total emissions. And if technology can control and reduce such amount of emissions, global warming will diminish. The startup also nurtures a bigger ambition: to achieve a temperature of 2732F, which is sufficient to generate synthetic gas as well as hydrogen. In that case, more and more clean energy is being used to create even more clean energy, making fewer emissions discharged into the environment.
