Hyperion Energy

Early Stage Startup





Tagline

Providing affordable, green energy



Elevator Pitch

Current green energy approaches are way too investment intensive with fluctuating energy output, to power a modern society.But our Team has developed a power plant design which can produce reliable electricity, day and night, summer and winter at affordable prices from solar power. Thus we can provide a cost-effective and industrially reliable alternative to existing fossil power plants.

Our first market will be Hawaii, which has very high energy prices, an abundance of solar resources and a strong political will to change the power system. We will be able to cut electricity prices threefold while still producing 24/7.

Product

We sell electricity around the clock and throughout the seasons, independent of solar input. Power plants will be specially dimensioned for each location in order to provide for the best cost-effectiveness. Our current design for a 10MW plant demands for a price of about 6 ct/kWh, but with further research and larger plants that price will drop to about 4 ct/kWh .That is below the current market price of coal and nuclear powered plants.

Our system is seen below. We use a mirror field to focus sunlight onto a central receiver. The heat gets transferred to our innovative storage system (which is depicted as a black box here). It can be extracted at any time and utilized to produce electricity. We will obtain all the solar power components from established companies such as eSolar, ABB and Siemens. But the storage system is our new technology, which is about 90 % cheaper than existing solutions and can store energy for up to a year. Its low investment cost is the reason the entire system is economical at all.



Why we are ecofriendly

Well, we provide an entirely clean energy generation approach, while we still have the economics of a working society in mind. We won't convince a lot of profit-seeking politicians and top level managers of our solution, if it is too costly. Our approach is based on convincing people, that our green power plants are a lot cheaper than any fossil fuel that could still be utilized. Thus we are taking away one of the biggest problems green energy has had up to now.

Enviromental Impact

As one expert on green power put it: "The benefits for the environment from this approach cannot be estimated high enough."

Economic Impact

We are basically going to change the way we think about energy in an economic sense. We do not need to change our lifestyle and industry in order to be green.

Social Impact

Hopefully we will have a huge social impact. Our long-term goal is to provide emerging countries with cheap and reliable green energy. We are not aiming at turning much of a profit in emerging countries, rather we wish to provide power plants "at cost".
