Abengoa completes 100 MW Xina Solar One South Africa concentrated solar power plant

Abengoa has achieved the "practical completion" of its Xina Solar One CSP plant in Northern Cape, South Africa, the developer said August 16. The 100 MW Xina Solar One plant uses parabolic trough technology and hosts 5.5 hours of storage capacity. The plant will feed power into the adjacent Paulputs [...]

Concentrated Solar Power scientists target 2,000°C thermal storage by 2019

Thermal energy storage (TES) has become a key asset for CSP developers looking to leverage cost advantages over other renewable energy sources for longer dispatch periods. Some 15 out of the 17 utility-scale CSP projects under construction around the world include TES, according to the CSP Today Global Tracker. [...]

16.6MWth Concentrated solar power plant in Denmark

Aalborg CSP in close collaboration with the Danish district heating plant (Brønderslev Forsyning) carried out a comprehensive feasibility study on the potential to use concentrated solar power as an add-on to the biomass-ORC plant. Based on the positive findings, Aalborg CSP was awarded the contract to develop and supply [...]

Why concentrated solar power towers and storage plants will reshape energy markets

The 150MW solar tower and molten salt storage plant to be built in Port Augusta has been made possible by a ground-breaking pricing and contract structure that could help completely reshape Australian power markets, including the end of “baseload” power as we know it. The South Australian government announced last [...]

How concentrated solar power tower and storage won on costs

As the South Australian government basks in the glow of procuring a second world-leading and game-changing renewable energy technology project for the state, attention is turning to the finer details of the deal; in particular, how a solar tower power plant with molten salt storage won the government tender [...]

Australia’s big new concentrated solar power plant

Some really exciting news - a new concentrating solar thermal (CSP) plant has been announced for the town of Port Augusta. Solar Reserve won a tender to meet the electricity demand requirements of the SA government and it's relatively surprising news - though solar thermal has been more expensive [...]

Australia to build a concentrated solar power plant at $78 per MWh

SolarReserve is a leader in large-scale international solar thermal projects, so it makes sense that they're behind a new plan to build the world's largest single-tower solar thermal power plant in South Australia.   (Image credit: SolarReserve) Dubbed the Aurora Solar Energy Project, this massive plant has a proposed output [...]

Abengoa achieves practical completion for Xina Solar One, its third concentrated solar power plant in South Africa

Abengoa has achieved practical completion for Xina Solar One, its third solar thermal plant in South Africa. Xina Solar One is a 100 MW plant that uses parabolic trough technology to generate renewable and sustainable and dispatchable power from the sun. Furthermore, this power plant features a thermal energy storage [...]

Concentrated Solar Power Collectors for District Heat in Northern Europe

Compared to steam turbines based on a water circuit, ORC installations make it possible to recover heat from low-temperature sources available in small-capacity plants. An ORC system can work well in concert with biomass combustion and solar concentrating units. The system was named for its use of an organic fluid [...]
