Humanity’s biggest threat.

In 1988 our planet reached the highest concentration of CO2 in at least a million years. Since then, each year has exceeded the previous and in 2015 we reached the dreaded threshold of 400 parts per million.

The solution that was always here.

In a single hour, the sun radiates to the earth four times more energy than our entire civilization consumes as electricity in a year.

With no need for moral imperatives.

Electricity auctions in Mexico, Dubai and Chile have shown that, for sunny climates, solar energy is by far the cheapest source of power. And there is no stronger irradiation than in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile.

However, there is a problem.

Electricity demand requires continuous, steady supply.

If there’s a holy grail out there these days, it’s Storage, because Innovations in Electricity Storage will change the economics of wind and solar power. – Daniel Yergin, 2014

Valhalla has solved it.

We will produce the cheapest unsubsidized 24/7 solar energy in the world. Clean. Infinitely abundant. Cheaper than coal.

How? When the sun shines, our Solar PV Plant produces electricity,

  1. Part of this energy goes directly to consumers,
  2. The rest is consumed to pump water up to a natural reservoir located above, and the water is released at night to generate electricity.

Where? The Atacama Desert also has the best conditions in the world for pumped storage hydro plants:

High coastal cliffs very close to the ocean that contain natural surface concavities which can be used for the storage of seawater, without the construction of dams. This dramatically reduces both the environmental footprint as well as the cost.

Renewable Energy Storage is the Biggest Private Market Opportunity in all of History. – Al Gore, 2015
