Industrial Solar's direct steam generation based on its LF-11 Fresnel collector technology has been awarded the "Solar Impulse Efficient Solution" label.
The "Solar Impulse Efficient Solution" label seeks to bridge the gap between ecology and economy, bringing together protection of the environment and financial viability to show that these solutions are not expensive fixes to problems, but rather opportunities for clean economic growth.
This label is granted to solutions who meet high standards of both sustainability and profitability. "Imagine the impact that this will have on the world! 1000 clean and efficient solutions with a label proving their profitability. They have the potential to create jobs and boost clean economic growth, while also reducing CO2 emissions and preserving natural resources. This is much more than ecological, it is logical!" said Bertrand Piccard, Initiator and Chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation. "Each time I speak of protecting the environment to heads of state or government officials, they tell me that it is too expensive. This label is a strong message to them: solutions exist, and represent the biggest market opportunity of our century. An opportunity which cannot be missed." The latest challenge of the Solar Impulse Foundation has received widespread institutional support, including from the UNFCCC, the European Commission, The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the International Energy Agency (IEA). Further collaborations include the EU Covenant of Mayors, a collection of more than 7,500 mayors from across the European continent looking to implement EU climate and energy objectives and to transition their cities toward sustainability.
Christian Zahler, CEO of Industrial Solar Holding Europe AB, commented: "Thank you for awarding our solar steam generation system the "Solar Impulse Efficient Solution" labe (https://solarimpulse.com/efficient-solutions/fresnel-solar-steam-generator)l and for telling the world that there are efficient, sustainable and affordable solutions out there reducing our emissions and bringing us closer to a carbon neutral society and circular economy. We're proud to be a part of the solution."
