HelioHeat GmbH is a spinoff company from the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), Institute of Solar Research, founded in 2017.  We are based in Offenburg, Germany, and are engaged in the field of renewable power and high temperature heat.

Our key technology is a patented solar receiver for Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plants, which utilizes small ceramic particles as the absorber medium of solar radiation. Compared to state-of-art molten salt technology, the particles can be heated up to 1000 °C enabling higher efficiencies and therefore potential cost reduction. Since the heated particles can be easily stored in insulated tanks, a 24/7 supply of either renewable electricity or industrial process heat is guaranteed.
