News and Stories: BrightSource Brings In Massive $150M for Solar Thermal. May 20, 2010.

Stirling Energy Systems, Inc. (SES) is a developer of solar power generation equipment for utility-scale power plants. SES has developed an innovative and highly efficient solar energy technology that is ready for commercialization. The Company's unique technology, the SunCatcher TM, combines a mirrored concentrator dish with a high-efficiency Stirling engine specially designed to convert sunlight to electricity.

SES has contracts to build and operate two large power projects with major Californian utilities for up to 1,750 megawatts (MW) of power, representing the world's two largest solar power contracts ever granted. Collectively, these contracts require up to 70,000 SunCatchers and further validate the commercial appeal of the technology.

SES is actively engaged in the commercialization of the SunCatcher, including continuing to prepare the system for mass production, completing project site-development and pre-construction activities and establishing partnerships with substantial manufacturing and industrial organizations to develop a cost-effective manufacturing process and supply chain.
