Concentrating Solar Power Plots Stealth Attack On Fossil Fuels
Tina Casey
1 week ago
https://cleantechnica.com/2023/12/05/concentrating-solar-power-attacks-fossil-fuels/

Nuclear energy stakeholders have been cheering the goings-on over at the COP 28 climate conference, where the US has joined a new 20-nation pledge to triple nuclear capacity by 2050. Whether or not they make that goal depends on investor interest, and plenty of other players in the decarbonization field are competing for attention, too. That includes the US concentrating solar power startup Heliogen, which is introducing a new particle-based system with the aim of kicking fossil fuels out of hard-to-decarbonize industries.

Concentrating Solar Power Vs. Nuclear Energy
Nuclear energy has enjoyed a special place in the modern energy landscape. Accidents and security risks aside, they provide the scale and 24/7 availability expected of fossil power plants, without the carbon emissions.

However, their role as a go-to decarbonizer has been undercut by wind and solar power. New energy storage and smart grid technologies are enabling wind turbines and solar panels to pull heavier duties, undercutting the rationale for building new nuclear power plants.

Concentrating solar power systems are in a particularly good position for heavy duty decarbonization because their energy storage capacity is built-in. Concentrating systems use sunlight to heat up a transfer medium, typically molten salt or a specialized oil, which doubles as an energy storage platform (see more CleanTechnica CSP coverage here).

Back in 2015, researchers from Imperial College in London took stock of the economic competition between concentrating solar and nuclear energy. Using a 15-year time frame in South Africa as an example, they found that the economic case favored concentrating solar on costs, with additional benefits in terms of “lower investment and environmental risks.”

“The results suggest that while nuclear power may be an important low-emissions power technology in regions with little sun, in the case of South Africa, CSP could be capable of providing a stable baseload supply at lower cost than nuclear power, and may have other non-cost benefits,” they concluded.

Building A Better (And Less Expensive) Concentrating Solar Power Plant
If you’ve come across any more recent studies, drop us a note in the comment thread. Cost aside, concentrating solar systems have caught on more rapidly overseas than here in the US, where a set of five Obama-era showcase projects failed to spark follow-on momentum among investors.

Nevertheless, the US Department of Energy has continued to hold a torch for concentrating solar power. The agency is particularly interested in the potential for concentrating solar power plants to replace the fossil fuels used in steelmaking and other heavy industries that require high heat.

The Energy Department has been working with Heliogen among other partners to tackle the high heat challenge. The company burst out of stealth mode in 2019 with a modular approach aimed at providing zero emission solar energy for steel, cement making and other industrial users. The system can produce electricity, green hydrogen or process heat, depending on the needs of the industry.

“Heliogen’s modular solution is designed to replace the use of fossil fuels in demanding operations. By combining AI-controlled concentrating solar thermal technology with long-duration thermal energy storage, Heliogen can provide dispatchable renewable energy for heat and energy-intensive operations,” the company explains.

Back in 2020, CleanTechnica took note of Heliogen’s use of supercritical carbon dioxide for its power system. The company also uses ceramic particles as an energy transfer and storage medium instead of molten salt or oil. Last year it earned a $39 million Energy Department award to construct a 5-megawatt demonstration of the new technology in partnership with the firm Woodside Energy.

In the latest development, Heliogen has achieved third-party validation data for its new automated heliostat control software, aimed at maximizing the efficiency of heliostat tracking in concentrating solar power plants.

A Secret Weapon For Concentrating Solar Power Plants
For those of you new to the topic, tracking refers to adjustments to the position of solar panels, enabling them to follow the sun during the course of a day. The tracking equipment takes energy to run, but that is more than offset by the gain in solar conversion efficiency.

A similar dynamic is at work in heliostat tracking, and Heliogen is looking beyond the potential to maximize its own operations. The software is heliostat-agnostic. Heliogen expects to license it for use by other concentrating solar power plants, both existing and in the planning stages.

“In a recent test, Heliogen’s closed-loop software was deployed on third-party heliostats, marking a first in the industry,” the company explained in a press release, referring to the Sandia validation process.

“This technology is pivotal in detecting optical inaccuracies and initiating autonomous correction, which can considerably improve the efficiency of existing CSP plants worldwide,” they added. “This represents a significant advancement in mitigating the primary sources of historical inaccuracy in heliostat orientation within the existing infrastructure of concentrating solar energy plants.”

Heliogen’s goal for the Sandia test was to reduce tracking errors to less than 1 milliradian. A milliradian is the unit of measurement used to assess very small angles such as those deployed in adjusting the targeting sights of firearms.

The software hit that goal and then some, coming in with a tracking error of just 0.33 milliradian.

As for widespread impact, Heliogen CEO Christie Obiaya underscored how the software could help accelerate the energy transition.

“This development is pivotal in widening the scope of our proprietary technology, enabling its application across government, industry, and new or existing solar projects, thereby advancing the decarbonization of hard-to-abate sectors,” Obiaya said.

More CSP For The USA
Heliogen has had a bumpy fiscal ride this year, but signs of recovery have been emerging. In addition to the successful validation of its tracking software, last month the company won a slot among eight other semifinalists in the Energy Department’s American-Made Heliostat Prize competition. In October Heliogen also announced the completion of two critical milestones in support of its concentrating solar power demonstration plant, the Capella Project.

The Heliostate Prize competition aims to motivate private sector innovators to help reduce the cost of concentrating solar power. “Lowering the cost of heliostats supports the goals of achieving a decarbonized energy sector by 2035 and a net-zero economy by 2050 which will require the deployment of flexible and dispatchable generation and energy storage technologies, like concentrating solar-thermal power (CSP) with thermal energy storage and high temperature process heat,” the Energy Department explains.

Heliogen won a slot in the competition for its work in assessing wireless heliostat control systems using widely available, off-the-shelf communications systems.

Cost-cutting measure developed by the other semifinalists include strategies to reduce the cost of the heliostat structure through the introduction of new designs, manufacturing processes, and materials.

The finalists will be announced in April next year so stay tuned for more on that.

I asked Open AI ChatGPT to guess what guidelines the Treasury Department will impose to qualify for the IRA clean hydrogen production tax credits. I did not get a great response. I continued to probe, and finally came up with a question with a decent answer, shown below. Basically, a phased in approach, like in Europe.

My Question

What specific guidelines would you recommend?

ChatGPT Answer

Crafting specific guidelines requires a detailed understanding of the energy landscape, technological capabilities, and economic considerations. However, here are some specific guidelines that policymakers might consider for implementing a phased approach to power matching for clean hydrogen production:

1. Initial Flexibility: Begin with moderate power matching requirements that allow for flexibility in clean hydrogen production. Consider annual or monthly matching targets initially before moving to more stringent hourly requirements.

2. Incentivize Advanced Technologies: Provide financial incentives, grants, or tax credits for industries adopting advanced technologies that enable precise hourly power matching. This can encourage early adoption and innovation.

3. Research and Development Funding: Allocate funding for research and development projects aimed at improving technologies related to power matching, storage, and grid integration.

4. Stakeholder Consultations: Engage in regular consultations with industry stakeholders to understand their capabilities, challenges, and potential solutions. This collaborative approach can lead to more informed and practical guidelines.

5. Public-Private Partnerships: Foster public-private partnerships to accelerate the deployment of clean hydrogen production technologies and infrastructure, ensuring a coordinated effort between the government and private sector.

6. Review Mechanism: Establish a mechanism for regular reviews of power matching guidelines to assess their effectiveness, consider technological advancements, and adjust requirements accordingly.

7. Transition Support Programs: Implement transition support programs to assist industries in upgrading their infrastructure and processes to meet the evolving power matching standards.

8. Global Alignment: Collaborate with international partners to align power matching standards globally, facilitating consistency and interoperability in the growing clean hydrogen market.

9. Education and Outreach: Conduct educational campaigns to raise awareness about the benefits of power matching, the importance of clean hydrogen production, and the long-term advantages of compliance with evolving standards.

10. Monitoring and Reporting Requirements: Implement robust monitoring and reporting requirements to ensure compliance with power matching guidelines, fostering transparency and accountability within the industry.

These guidelines should be adapted based on ongoing assessments, feedback from stakeholders, and the evolving landscape of clean energy technologies. Additionally, policymakers should consider the unique characteristics of the U.S. energy sector and collaborate with relevant stakeholders for effective implementation.

Solar energy set to eclipse fossil fuels as world passes ‘tipping point’, study reveals
‘The recent progress of renewables means that fossil fuel-dominated projections are no longer realistic,’ says researcher
Anthony Cuthbertson
3 days ago
https://www.independent.co.uk/tech/solar-energy-renewables-fossil-fuels-b2432493.html

Key excerpts:

“Solar energy is the most widely available energy resource on Earth, and its economic attractiveness is improving fast in a cycle of increasing investments,” the researchers wrote in a study detailing their findings.

“We find that, due to technological trajectories set in motion by past policy, a global irreversible solar tipping point may have passed where solar energy gradually comes to dominate global electricity markets, without any further climate policies.”



The latest research comes less than a month after a Berlin-based research institute calculated that fossil fuel-generated power will no longer be economically viable within the next 30 years due to the plummeting costs of solar, batteries and other renewable technologies.

The UK saw a record-breaking year for renewable energy last year, and is on track to do the same in 2023 following the installation of new solar and wind plants.

Wind, solar, biomass and hydro power generated 40 per cent of the country’s electricity in 2022, according to figures compiled by Imperial College London, up 5 per cent from the year before.

Heliogen Announces Major Milestones in Concentrated Solar Technology Project with Woodside Energy and U.S. Department of Energy
October 17 2023
https://ih.advfn.com/stock-market/NYSE/heliogen-HLGN/stock-news/92292788/heliogen-announces-major-milestones-in-concentrate

Particle receiver prototype design verification advances Heliogen’s 5MWe commercial-scale renewable power project

Heliogen, Inc. (NYSE: HLGN) (the “Company”), a leading provider of AI-enabled concentrating solar energy technology, has completed two key product development milestones related to its Capella Project, the world’s first fully integrated Gen3 Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) commercial demonstration. They are the deployment of the first commercial-scale centrifugal particle receiver for on-sun testing and completion of the design verification of the prototype particle receiver for Capella. Together, these two milestones are essential to deploy Heliogen’s centrifugal particle receiver in the Capella Project, a collaboration with Woodside Energy (USA) Inc. (NYSE: WDS) and a funding award from the U.S. Department of Energy.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20231017130066/en/

Upon completion, the Capella project will add to Heliogen's portfolio of commercially ready technologies. Alongside the mature products Heliogen already offers for the industrial heat and large-scale power markets, the Gen3 CSP capabilities will broaden the space of potential applications to include variably sized power projects and improve economics for many customers.

“By using Heliogen’s next-generation solar energy technology, industrial energy users will be able to improve their bottom line while doing their part to mitigate climate change,” said Christie Obiaya, Chief Executive Officer of Heliogen. “Completing these two Capella milestones brings us one step closer to helping industries move into high-value, solar-powered processes and reduce dependence on volatile fossil fuels.”

Like any major advanced technology project, there are a lot of moving parts and iterative steps along the way. For Heliogen, the completed project milestones move the project closer to harnessing heat from the sun that will become electrical power. Heliogen’s particle receiver design uses solid materials like ceramic particles to safely capture and store heat from the sun at temperatures up to 750° C, then transfers that heat to a highly efficient power block to generate electricity. The particle receiver is an essential element in Capella, the world’s first fully integrated Generation 3 CSP plant combining solid-particle thermal energy storage and supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power generation to achieve unprecedented efficiencies.

“These milestones represent exciting progress in our collaboration to demonstrate the potential of Heliogen’s innovative, concentrated solar energy technology,” said Jason Crusan, Vice President, New Energy Growth and Solutions at Woodside. “They also advance the development of a technology solution that supports our commitment to building a low-cost, lower-carbon, profitable, resilient and diversified portfolio.”

Heliogen remains on track with its previously disclosed Capella development schedule, with front-end engineering design (FEED) forecasted for completion in late 2023 and groundbreaking planned for 2024, in line with previous guidance.

Heliogen Announces 1-for-35 Reverse Stock Split
August 25 2023
https://ih.advfn.com/stock-market/NYSE/heliogen-HLGN/stock-news/91901289/heliogen-announces-1-for-35-reverse-stock-split

Heliogen, Inc. (“Heliogen”) (NYSE: HLGN), a leading provider of AI-enabled concentrating solar energy technology, announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a 1-for-35 reverse stock split (“Reverse Stock Split”) of Heliogen’s common stock. Heliogen’s stockholders previously approved the Reverse Stock Split at Heliogen’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on August 3, 2023 and gave Heliogen’s Board of Directors discretionary authority to select a ratio for the Reverse Stock Split ranging from 1-for-10 shares to 1-for-40 shares.

The Reverse Stock Split is expected to be effective at 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on August 31, 2023. Beginning on September 1, 2023, Heliogen’s common stock is expected to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”). Following the Reverse Stock Split, the common stock will continue trading on the NYSE under the symbol “HLGN”, but will trade under a new CUSIP number: 42329E204. Heliogen’s publicly traded warrants will continue to be traded on the NYSE under the symbol “HLGN.W” and the CUSIP number for the warrants will remain unchanged.

Purpose of the Reverse Stock Split

The primary purpose of the reverse stock split is to increase the market price of Heliogen's common stock to regain full compliance with the NYSE share price listing rule and maintain Heliogen’s listing on the NYSE. Heliogen believes that the higher share price resulting from the Reverse Stock Split will also make Heliogen’s shares more attractive to institutional and other investors.

Details of the Reverse Stock Split

Under the terms of the Reverse Stock Split, every 35 shares of Heliogen's issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically combined and converted into one issued and outstanding share of common stock, with no change in the par value per share. This will reduce the number of outstanding shares of Heliogen’s common stock from approximately 205.1 million to approximately 5.9 million. The Reverse Stock Split will not change the authorized number of shares of common stock.

No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders of record who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fractional share will receive a cash payment in lieu of such fractional share.

As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, proportionate adjustments will be made to the number of shares of Heliogen's common stock underlying Heliogen's outstanding equity awards, warrants and preferred units, as well as the exercise or conversion price, as applicable.

It's difficult to watch the action on a daily basis as I work 60/70-hour weeks. I would actually trade more if I had the time to focus on the market. I should have set a sell order after the 29% gain and then unload 20% of my holdings to try and take some profit. I want to have a core investment in HLZN but sell 20% when the share price reaches a gain whereas I can take some profits. This was a missed opportunity, and I will need to find time for such a disciplined approach.

LMAO! HLGN remains uncertain due to the lack of available data and forecast information. With no earnings per share or sales data reported for the current quarter, investors are left without key indicators to gauge the company’s financial performance.

The reporting date for HLGN’s financial results is also yet to be determined, further adding to the uncertainty surrounding the stock. Investors typically rely on these reports to make informed decisions about their investments, as they provide insights into a company’s profitability, revenue generation, and overall financial health.

Without any forecast data or recommendations available, investors may find it challenging to assess the future prospects of HLGN. These factors contribute to a lack of clarity and make it difficult to predict the stock’s performance on August 22, 2023.

The Clean Hydrogen Rules Will Be Delayed Until at Least October
The Biden administration will miss a deadline in the Inflation Reduction Act, as it tries to regulate one of the climate law’s most generous —and contentious — tax credits.
AUGUST 10, 2023
https://heatmap.news/economy/hydrogen-tax-credit-rules-when

The Biden administration is planning to publish rules governing one of the most generous subsidies in its new climate law — a tax credit for clean hydrogen — no earlier than October, missing a key deadline inscribed in the law, according to a source familiar with the process.

The rules revolve around one of the most contentious questions that has emerged after the law’s passage: How do you know that your electricity is clean? The debate has divided climate activists, hydrogen companies, renewable developers, and nuclear-power plant owners.

The ultimate answer could — by one estimate — determine the flow of more than $100 billion in federal subsidies over the next two decades.

The new rules could come as late as December, the source said, missing the deadline by as much as four months. The climate law required the Treasury Department publish guidance about the hydrogen tax credit within one year of its passage. Because the law was signed on August 16, 2022, that deadline will arrive next week.

Hydrogen is key to the Biden administration’s climate strategy. The colorless, odorless gas has the potential to replace fossil fuels in industries that are otherwise difficult to make climate-friendly, including steelmaking, shipping, aviation, and fertilizer production. While hydrogen does not emit any carbon when burned, today most hydrogen is made from natural gas in a carbon-intensive process.

The new tax credit is designed to make cleaner production methods more competitive, and it offers the largest reward — $3 per kilogram of hydrogen — to companies that can make hydrogen without emitting almost any greenhouse gases at all.

The issue before the Treasury Department is how companies should calculate their greenhouse gas emissions when trying to qualify for this credit. But there’s no universally accepted way to do this accounting. That is an especially big problem for a method of producing hydrogen called electrolysis, which uses electricity to split water into its constituent hydrogen and oxygen atoms. The process is incredibly energy-intensive, but it can be emissions-free, as long as the electricity comes from a carbon-free source.

A major debate has erupted among energy companies, environmental groups, and academics over what should qualify as carbon-free electricity. Earlier this year, researchers from Princeton University’s ZERO Lab warned that the Treasury Department’s decision could risk a major increase in emissions, underwritten by billions of public dollars, if not crafted carefully. Most — but not all — of the nascent clean hydrogen industry has pushed back on their analysis, warning that onerous rules would “devastate the economics” of clean hydrogen.

As we’ve previously reported, the complicated tax credit could transform the nuclear power sector and America’s energy economy writ large. It could also drive the formation of a booming domestic clean-hydrogen industry — but only if the Biden administration gets it right.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

Management uses certain financial measures, including EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, to evaluate our financial and operating performance that are calculated and presented on the basis of methodologies other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors and analysts to assess our ongoing financial performance because they provide improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that we believe are not indicative of our core operating performance, enhance the overall understanding of our past financial performance and future prospects, and remove items that may obscure our underlying business results and trends. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, and our calculations thereof may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

EBITDA represents consolidated net loss before (i) interest (income) expense, net, (ii) income tax expense (benefit) and (iii) depreciation and amortization expense. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted for certain significant non-cash items and items that management believes are not attributable to or indicative of our on-going operations or that may obscure our underlying results and trends. Please see the accompanying tables for a reconciliation of net loss to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.
