PROBLEM Sopogy will deliver industrial grade solar steam for use in oil refineries and other facilities that use high amounts of energy for industrial processes.
SOLUTION Sopogy is installing an array of their next generation (SopoTitan) micro concentrating solar collectors at NELHA; collector performance will be analyzed and optimized for industrial heat applications.
RESULTS Successful product testing with Chevron Technology Ventures, enabled a future large commercial installation of SopoTitan collectors that will offset fossil fuel use. Read Sopogy’s project summary, which concluded in April 2013.
