SHEC ENERGY has over the years, with funding from Sustainable Technology Development Canada
and private investment, developed a number of solar energy innovations with it’s own lab and help from various corporate and university associates. SHEC is now engaged in accepting funding from accredited investors for a limited time.
Some points of interest as explained to me by the company president Tom Beck require engineering consultancy or expertise in the field for full appreciation.

1. SHEC’s technology is a game-changer globally. 95% heat retention efficiency at the cylindrical focal point of the solar parabolic concentrator (solar receiver).

This compares to 40%-50% what is used by utilities today in parabolic trough solar farms. This allows more energy to be converted to steam and electricity compared to other technologies and reduces the land required for solar farms by approximately 33%. A JV is soon to be formed with a major Chinese company to take advantage of the huge solar power market in China.

2. When the solar technology is scaled up, SHEC’s internal building costs with specialized/patented manufacturing processes are about 9 cents per KW/hour in ideal sunlight. Nothing we know of in the world compares to this, with a solar conversion efficiency of over 40%.

.
3. SHEC has a proprietary liquid that stores and moves heat at 850 degrees Celsius, compared to molten salt at 450 degrees. This has enormous implications for baseload power, turbine efficiencies and can completely change the nature of energy storage markets globally.

4. SHEC has a rapid manufacturing process for parabolic mirrors  that is several times faster than current techniques.

SHEC has a subsidiary in the US which was part of the Obama administrations trade mission to India recently, which resulted in the on going negotiations with large Indian utilities. SHEC has also been part of a Canada sponsored trade mission to South Africa and is close to an MOU for a solar farm there, as well as Kenyafor power plants in the 50 – 300MW scale..

SHEC is a unique Canadian company that is set to be a global block-buster over the medium term. Investment is required to complete a due diligence phase leading to a major JV in China and a JV with Cleanergy to advance the solar-sterling hybrid waterless engine which will be superior to PV in sunny arid regions. A press release on this is on SHEC’s website.

Here below is a note with a presentation link and password where Tom Beck describes SHEC’s advantages.

________________________________________
SHEC Energy has developed the World's most efficient Solar Thermal generation technology.

This disruptive next generation technology can generate up to 24 hours a day of power from sunlight at about 1/2 the cost of competing technologies.

According the International Energy Agency, $26.3 trillion must be spent by 2030 to meet growing energy needs.
