Change the world

PROJECT SUMMARY

Hot Rock™ is a system that allows solar thermal energy collected during the day to be stored for the later conversion to electricity at a 1-to-5 kW scale.  The system comprises a parabolic trough, a rock bed and a heat engine.  Solar thermal energy is collected using the trough and stored in the rock bed. 

MARKET/NEED

This innovation provides for energy needs with less theft risk, lower cost and higher local content over traditional chemical battery storage systems.

BENEFITS

The availability of a financially viable embedded generation solution would offer a way for members of the public to reduce their monthly electricity bill or even create a source of income via electricity wheeling agreements recently made available in SA.
