Concentrated solar power has never made enough heat to be used in certain industrial processes such as creating cement, steel, or glass.
Bill Gates’ startup Heliogen uses technology that uncovered the ability to generate heat over 1,000°C. Using their software and materials, greenhouse emissions can be dramatically decreased in the industry that creates “more than a fifth of global emissions”.
Although the investment may be high at first, it will save companies money while also providing green heat. Among these developments, Heliogen is also using their discoveries to produce clean hydrogen and further their renewable energy uses.
