GoSol Solar Concentrator

GoSol.org is a platform run by a small, dedicated, and multi-national team of innovators and environmentalists who have created GoSol.org, a social enterprise start-up based in Tampere, Finland.

The GoSol.org platform exists to connect businesses, NGOs and eco-enthusiasts with the technologies and services they need to achieve energy independence.

Our Mission[edit | edit source]

Our mission is to eradicate energy poverty and minimize the damage of climate change by breaking down the barriers to solar energy access. Through innovative design and a focus on accessibility we are overcoming the cost and complexity barriers currently limiting global viral deployment of solar thermal technologies in humanitarian, commercial and industrial contexts. All the tools and materials needed to implement solar thermal technologies are already produced and stocked en masse around the world; the world is ready.

Our Tech[edit | edit source]

GoSol.org technologies are high power solar concentrators built with off-the-shelf materials available everywhere in the world. To learn more about our technologies, visit http://www.gosol.org.
