Solar Thermal Technologies Available for Licensing

U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories and participating research institutions have concentrating solar power and solar heating technologies available for licensing. Solar heating technologies include those for heating water, preheating ventilation systems, and even to power air-conditioning systems. Concentrating solar power technologies include thermal storage and the following systems:

  • Linear concentrating
  • Dish/engine
  • Power tower
