Designed to be manufactured and maintained anywhere in the world, using local materials and manufacturing capabilities.
The Future Heat Economy
Heat was the predominant energy currency in the past, but has since been forgotten in favour of a carbon-based economy. As we transition away from fossil fuels, Wooden Solar aims to restore heat as one of our primary energy currencies in the future, particularly within developing, rural communities.
Fully Redundant Solutions
Wooden Solar utilises bulk heat storage as its primary energy store. A completely clean energy storage solution, this system is non-polluting during manufacture, operation and disposal. It also lasts far longer than lithium-based batteries and costs a fraction of current conventional energy storage systems.
Heat is universal. While Wooden Solar’s technology is predominantly based on Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), it may be immediately modified to utilise heat from any source, including geothermal and biogas. This negates the need to maintain and run concurrent backup systems.
Highly Robust Renewable Energy
Cheap and easy conversion of heat energy to mechanical power has always been a sticking point. The heart of Wooden Solar’s technology is a frugally engineered, highly robust steam engine. All major components may be constructed with minimal precision and very large tolerances. This negates the need for high tech manufacturing, making it accessible to everyone.
