Airlight Energy Innovations (ALE) innovative technology is based on flexible pneumatic mirrors combined with concrete frames, for Concentrated Solar Power (CSP).
It uses air as thermal fluid combined with a heat storage system based on the simple heating of gravel for the CSP.
A large collector aperture of 9.5m, resulting in increased sun concentration (120-160x) and higher thermal energy for the CSP or electrical energy for CPV.
An integrated thermal storage system ensures 24-hour base load power.
The life of the systems materials is estimated for 60 years.
