SolarBeam Worldwide Installation History

The commercial SolarBeam 4.5M  parabolic concentrator was developed to provide peak 12 kWh (40,900 BTU) from an incredibly small collecting area of 16 m2 (160 sq.ft). The SolarBeam was implemented in 48 locations worldwide ranging from desert to snow/ice condition.

The SolarBeam 4.5M met all targeted energy efficiencies and reliability. The successful deployment of the SolarBeam 4.5M lead to the development to the utility scale SolarBeam 7M.
