Cost-effectively replacing fossil fuels solves the world’s CO2 problem and Heliogen develops the technology to do just that.
Unlocking the Power of Sunlight
Carbon-free, ultra-high temperature heat to power heavy industrial processes including the making of cement, steel, and petrochemicals.
Electricity made from sunlight using supercritical CO2 turbines to power industrial facilities, data centers, and mining operations.
Clean fuels like green hydrogen that can be used to power industry and as fuel in transportation, heavy equipment, and household heating.
Heliogen’s technology cost-effectively delivers near 24/7 carbon-free energy in the form of heat, power, and green hydrogen fuel at scale for the first time in history.
How it Works
The baseline system will provide industrial-grade heat that will be capable of replacing fossil fuels in processes including the production of cement, steel, and petrochemicals.
Heliogen’s technology will also enable power generation through the addition of a supercritical CO2 turbine and green hydrogen fuel production in combination with an electrolyzer.
Our Technology is
Uses sunlight – an infinitely renewable source – to power industry.
Developed by scientists and engineers from Caltech, MIT, and other premier institutions.
Available in 5 MW modules; scalable to 100s of MWs

Today, industrial processes like those used to make cement, steel, and other materials are responsible for more than a fifth of all emissions. These materials are everywhere in our lives but we don’t have any proven breakthroughs that will give us affordable, zero-carbon versions of them. If we’re going to get to zero carbon emissions overall, we have a lot of inventing to do.
I’m pleased to have been an early backer of Bill Gross’s novel solar concentration technology. Its capacity to achieve the high temperatures required for these processes is a promising development in the quest to one day replace fossil fuel.
