Industry needs a new resource to power the energy transition including heat, power, and hydrogen Part 1: Problem / Solution

 

 

Solar energy is one of the most evenly distributed natural resources… Providing 10,000 times what the planet uses Part 1: Problem / Solution

 

 

However, there are two problems: Solar / renewable energy is extremely intermittent Solar / renewable energy is difficult to transport Part 1: Problem / Solution

 

 

Heliogen’s Sunlight Refinery Œ will solve these two fundamental problems Heliogen aims to produce near always - available and transportable renewable energy – cost - effectively Part 1: Problem / Solution

 

 

Heliogen has 4 fundamental insights that set it apart Part 2: Heliogen’s differentiation 1. Heavy industry is a critical market for decarbonizing technologies and is currently underserved 2. Renewable energy for heavy industry must be near constantly available and cost effective 3. AI / software / computation power can simplify and reduce both hardware, installation, and maintenance cost 4. High volume manufacturing techniques enable reliability, scale, and learning curve cost - reduction Heliogen is building on these 4 key insights to decarbonize industry, projected to create a profitable , high - growth business

 

 

We believe that Heliogen is currently the only public solar technology company that has the potential to meaningfully address climate change for industrial customers Residential/Commercial Utility Industrial Decarbonization Insight 1 : Addressing a high - growth, underserved market Part 2: Heliogen’s differentiation

 

 

Heliogen’s Differentiator Will Be Near Always - Available Renewable Energy Traditional solar energy has a big peak at noon, and goes to zero after the sun goes down Heliogen’s solar energy WITH overnight storage puts out flat power level ALL day long Continuous power is needed by industry, and for cost - effective green Hydrogen Insight 2 : Industry runs 24/7, and needs cost - effective 24/7 power Part 2: Heliogen’s differentiation

 

 

Our Fundamental Insight – More computation now makes smaller better Old belief: Bigger is better! Software now makes s maller better! Insight 3 : Technology - enabled solutions drive our business: We use more bits (software) so we can use fewer atoms Part 2: Heliogen’s differentiation

 

 

Business Model Plant estimated to produce: • > 85% capacity factor renewable power • < 5 cents per kW - hour power cost (1) • < 1/6 th square mile footprint (650m x 650m) • > 850,000 kilograms of hydrogen/year We Reinvented Concentrated Solar to be Modular & Scalable ~ 650m x 650m We build ONE modular 5MW plant and replicate it to meet our customers’ demand: • ~100MW of electrical energy can be produced with ~20 modules • Modular and easily scalable design will allow for growth to compete with large scale renewable projects ~ 2100ft x 2100ft Insight 4 : Scale and modularity are key to driving down costs Part 2: Heliogen’s differentiation 1. Heliogen estimates. Analysis assumes subsidized economics with 60% debt at 8% interest rate and 40% equity at 12% cost over 30 year projection period. Represents the estimated implied LCOE of Heliogen.

 

 

1. Reflect sun rays to top of tower 2. Generate high temperatures in solar receiver 3. Store heat in solid media 4. Heat exchanger brings heat to heat engine 5. Heat engine makes power 6. Optional electrolyzer makes Hydrogen Heliogen’s operational prototype facility in Lancaster, California The Heliogen Process Heliogen’s c losed - loop system uses computer vision to identify the precise position of every single mirror, then make micro - adjustments in real time to achieve a perfect focus. Closed - loop means that the mirrors are pointed more accurately with optical feedback, not just mechanical stiffness Part 3: How Heliogen Works

 

 

The sky is very bright next to the sun, and the intensity decreases further away Heliogen’s Heliostat Operating System (H.O.S.) The cameras measure the intensity of sky reflected in each mirror. Using these four intensity measurements, we calculate the mirror orientation and therefore the direction of the beam, allowing real - time perfect tracking. H.O.S. is the first commercial closed - loop heliostat field control system. 4 cameras Sun & intensity gradient 2 3 4 We believe our patented system is the first ever to achieve closed - loop tracking enabling cost - effective ultra - high temperatures at commercial scale 1 Part 3: How Heliogen Works

 

 

Heliogen’s software/AI - based closed - loop tracking invention: Better focus, higher temperatures, and higher efficiency will enable lower cost Open - loop tracking system: Bigger target, lower concentration, lower temperatures Heliogen’s patented closed - loop tracking system: Near - perfect focus, higher temps Part 3: How Heliogen Works

 

 

Heliogen reinvented concentrated solar by using Moore’s Law to break the huge mirror into 100 smaller mirrors that can be mass - manufactured and controlled by software Pre - fabricated in factory and deployed like “farming” Assembled in field In 2015, the cost of sensors, image recognition, and autonomy dropped enough in price to make our innovation possible for the first time Part 3: How Heliogen Works

 

 

Heliogen has reinvented concentrated solar with modular, repeatable scale by using AI, computer vision, robotics, and factory automation Traditional concentrated solar – ~3,500 acres, $2B+ capex, many years to construct Heliogen 5 MW module actual size: ~100 acres, able to suit broader range of customer needs for space, capex cost, and time to construct ~35x smaller than traditional CSP field Part 3: How Heliogen Works

 

 

Heliogen has a strong portfolio of 6 granted and 13 pending patents Rich portfolio of technology advancements and proprietary software includes the following issued patents: • Closed loop tracking system (9,010,317, 10,101,430) • Heliostat tracking based on radiance maps (11,017,561) • Heliostat intensity & polarization tracking (10,359,215, ZL 201710278774.4) • Covered heliostat array (11,035,592) • Self - ballasted suspended heliostat (appl. no. 16/426599 allowed) • Solar panel tracking assembly (ZL201721163276.7, ZL201721163153.3, ZL201721163240.9) Part 3: How Heliogen Works
