CAPITAL EFFICIENCY & SCALE UP

Faster scale up than batteries or PV, with much less capital

how?

THE GAME CHANGER

Gigawatts (GW) with no new gigafactories

  • massive worldwide factory capacity - today

  • commodity steel fabrication & glass mirrors

  • top-tier high-volume piston engine and turbine factories

  • no new, scarce, or toxic materials

  • no new processes

  • no new science
    ⇒ just practical innovation and end-to-end systems engineering

RAPID SCALE UP,

CAPITAL EFFICIENCY

and LOWER COST

KEY TO STORAGE COST BREAKTHROUGH

Steam piston engine

  • the only supplier of this “old” but essential high technology is Spilling Technologies GmbH

  • Terrajoule and Spilling Technologies are exclusive partners for solar power

  • highly refined during decades of continuous heavy-duty use

  • manufacturing of Spilling Technologies steam gensets is under exclusive license

  • but … how to manufacture in multi-GW volumes?
    ⇒ our world-leading diesel genset partner has multi-GW existing capacity for steam genset manufacturing
    ⇒ repurposing state-of-the-art fossil-power technology for clean solar
    ⇒ worldwide existing heavy-duty diesel genset production capacity

    > 30 GW/year

CRITICAL TO SCALE UP

Onsite construction time and labour

  • modularization and end-to-end design for automation are the keys

  • Terrajoule’s Prefabricated Solar Concentrator achieves 10x the mirror area installed per labour hour vs. prior solar concentrators
