Our revolutionary hybrid solar platform

A step change in utility-scale solar technology

High efficiency

Industry changing light harvesting technology

Upgradable

The world’s 1st upgradable solar platform

Built-in storage

A new class of thermal storage technology

Dual-purpose

Providing both dispatchable and baseload power

Our purpose

To accelerate the global transition to zero carbon energy through the development of a new class of solar technology

The problem with solar today

Low efficiency

Average 18% sun-to-electricity
conversion efficiency

Binary technology

Single platform providing either baseload or dispatchable power

Cell degradation

Environment decreases PV cell performance by 0.25-1.30% per year

Intermittent supply

Production limited by sunlight hours, geographic location and cloud cover

Thermally limited

Current thermal storage is limited by temperatures of ~600°C

Non-upgradable

Expensive and complex to
upgrade cells/modules once installed

Limiting warming to 1.5ºC is possible within the laws of chemistry and physics but doing so would require unprecedented changes.

It’s a line in the sand and what it says to our species is that this is the moment and we must act now.

Our solution

High efficiency

Average of 38% sun-to-electricity
conversion efficiency

Hybrid technology

Single platform providing both baseload and dispatchable power

Low degradation

Cells shielded from the environment substantially reduce degradation

Consistent supply

Provides round the clock power generation

Thermally optimised

Orenko's thermal storage can store at temperatures of up to 1000°C

Upgradable cells

Once installed cells can be easily replaced with latest technology

Why now?

At no other time in history has both the need and the opportunity for a renewable revolution been so great
