Novel Concentrated Solar Power Design Combines the Solar Receiver with Thermal Energy Storage

Among the many international researchers inventing improvements in Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), a Chinese-Finnish team has designed an interesting innovation. They propose integrating energy storage in rocks and fan-recirculated hot air into the solar receiver itself. Normally in CSP the thermal energy storage of the solar heat is in molten [...]

6 Concentrated Solar Power projects with 350 MW capacity will be newly built in China this year

A group of large-scale commercial solar thermal power (CSP) plants have been developed and constructed in China since the official announcement of national first batch of 20 demonstration projects and FiT policy accordingly. Three of the Concentrated Solar Power demos were successfully connected to the grid by the end [...]

EnergyNest signs energy storage contract for concentrated solar power

In the global race for energy storage technologies, the Oslo-based start-up EnergyNest takes the lead. In cooperation with the Italian oil & gas major Eni the first thermal energy storage for CO2-free power generation will be built in Sicily, Italy. EnergyNest is headed by Dr. Christian Thiel. Around a dozen [...]

Eni to produce renewable steam

EnergyNext will deliver an industrial thermal battery system to Eni SpA (BIT:ENI) and deploy it in a project for generating renewable steam at the Italian oil and gas major’s site in Sicily. The goal of the particular project at Eni’s Gela refinery is to connect the thermal battery to [...]

Shanghai Electric Group has awarded Nervión Industries, a subsidiary of the Amper Group, the construction of salt storage tanks for a solar thermal power plant in Dubai for 13 million dollars (about 11.77 million euros). In a relevant fact referred to the National Securities Market Commission (CNMV), the company [...]

Israel inaugurates Negev concentrated solar power plant

The concentrated solar power plant will contribute significantly to Israel’s target of making 10% of the country’s electricity supply renewable by 2020, and 17% by 2030, according to Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz. The largest renewable energy project in Israel, a vast concentrating solar thermal power plant near Ashalim in [...]

Morocco prioritises world’s largest concentrated solar power plant

Morocco's status as a global poster-boy for renewable energy was confirmed in May when it signed a $780mn contract to build Noor Midelt, a plant that solves solar energy's biggest problem: what happens when the sun goes down? The plant, to be built by a French-led consortium, combines two solar [...]

Abengoa breaks records with Xina Solar One, its third concentrated solar power plant in South Africa

The concentrated solar power plant, owned by Abengoa, IDC, PIC and the Community Trust, has passed the guaranteed production tests in record time. With a capacity of 100 MW, the solar thermal plant provides clean and sustainable energy even in hours without solar radiation thanks to its molten salts storage [...]
