Our Mission

Decarbonize Industrial Process Heat

Our Business

We started as a technology company developing our proprietary Intelligent Mirror Array (IMA), a renewable solar system for industrial process heat. As we toured countless industrial facilities, we noticed process heating systems are almost always the most wasteful systems in the plant. One of the best ways to fix that is to implement heat recovery, where every BTU of heat recovered from a process is one BTU of fuel that doesn’t need to be burned. But we recognized how difficult it is to get energy projects off the ground. So we set out to transform the way heat recovery projects are done by making them a lot easier. Today, we help manufacturers reduce their fuel costs with no capital investment required, by providing a suite of turn-key solutions for clean thermal energy.

Our People

We have diverse backgrounds and skills, but we're all passionate about building a more sustainable future.
