SAVING & GENERATING ENERGY JUST GOT EASIER

OUR IDEA

Conventional solar thermal collectors increase the temperature of a working fluid to levels that existing technologies are unable to efficiently exploit. Heliix’s PhaethonTM is a completely innovative device, which efficiently transforms the heat of low temperature fluids into electricity, using a ground-breaking thermodynamic cycle.

HOW IT WORKS

The PhaethonTM works by connecting to your solar water heater and harnessing the waste heat of the solar thermal collectors to generate electricity. The electricity generated is directly supplied to your main electrical panel, allowing you to consume less electricity from the utility grid.

Efficiency:
The PhaethonTM is the world’s first, high efficiency, compression energy production device that easily connects to an existing solar water heater, immediately transforming thermal energy into both hot water and low-cost clean electricity.

Cost:
Reduce a household’s annual electricity costs by 25% to 30%.

Return on Investment:
PhaethonTM will be introduced at a competitive price, giving households the ability to achieve a return on their initial investment within a short 3 to 4 years, depending on location and electricity rates.

Fast & Easy Installation:
PhaethonTM can connect to any type
of solar thermal collector, across all international markets.

Expected Lifespan:
A common solar thermal panel has 20 years life expectancy.

A truly new energy revolution isn’t about a cool new gadget. It’s about a solution that will change a 100+ year-old reliance on fossil fuel-centric economies. PhaethonTM is part of the solution to this new energy future. PhaethonTM is able to capitalize on the vast and unexploited energy source that resides in existing global solar thermal infrastructures. By connecting PhaethonTM to existing solar water heaters (200 million are currently installed worldwide), a vast increase of renewable energy is unleashed.

PhaethonTM is compact (80 cm x 40 cm x 70 cm), low cost, easy to install (approx. 1 hour), and offers a drastic increase in electricity production while providing considerable energy savings.

Once connected to a PhaethonTM unit, a solar thermal collector can generate up to 200 Watts of electricity per m2 of surface. This means that by using a mere 10% of existing thermal solar infrastructure PhaethonTM can generate over 16 GW of renewable energy — a power increase totaling more than 16 nuclear power plants combined.

FUTURE APPLICATIONS

Heliix hopes to reimagine the possibilities of solar energy. By leveraging the unique advantages of our technology’s potential to efficiently harness the heat of relatively low temperature fluids from any energy source, the Heliix team will develop several applications− such as exhaust gas power kits that will be able to produce electricity from low temperature gases. The high efficiency of Phaethon allows us to expand our technology to large-scale installations. Some examples of future applications include streamlined solar thermal parks and domestic solar thermal systems that will render households electrically autonomous.

There is no device like PhaethonTM

Heliix recognized a market gap and created a revolutionary solution to tackle the issue of waste heat in solar water heaters.
