The 10-meter diameter high-flux solar furnace to help in energy storage


Press Release


Abu Dhabi-UAE: – Khalifa University of Science and Technology, a research university dedicated to the advancement of learning through the discovery and application of knowledge, and Wahaj Solar (Wahaj Investment L.L.C) today announced they have signed an agreement to test and verify a patented prototype in the Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) industry at the Masdar Institute Solar Platform (MISP).


The 10-meter diameter high-flux solar furnace – the first medium-scale point solar concentrator –can focus solar energy efficiently to a lower point fixed on the ground generating a very high temperature which is easily accessible. This system is unique since the focal point is fixed on the ground while the solar disk turns around it throughout the day. This would result in many applications including low cost solar energy storage allowing for 24/7 electricity production, high efficiency in electricity production, hydrogen generation from water, desalination, as well as melting metals or sand to produce glass.


The project period is one year during which the performance of the concentrator will be tested analyzed, and certain applications demonstrated by a team led by Dr. Nicolas Calvet, Assistant Professor, College of Engineering, and Chair of the Masdar Institute Solar Platform - Khalifa University. The invention has already received favorable reviews from experts in reputable international research institutes worldwide.
