China’s Silk Road Fund acquires 49% of ACWA Power Renewable Energy

China's Silk Road Fund has purchased a 49% stake in ACWA Power Renewable Energy (ACWA Power RenewCo), the Saudi Arabian group announced June 23. ACWA Power is a leading solar and wind developer in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and the dominant developer of CSP plants in [...]

A Solar Process Like Gas Reforming Makes Green Hydrogen Cheaper

A preliminary study of the average cost of a novel process for producing solar hydrogen in several locations in Australia finds it could come close to the US DOE renewable hydrogen target of $3 per kilogram. The way that hydrogen is reformed from natural gas is a well-established, low-cost process. [...]

EPRI to Lead $5 Million DOE/NETL Project to Test Concrete Thermal Energy Storage Technology

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) to lead a pilot project to test concrete thermal energy storage (CTES). Participants in the $5 million project will design, construct, and test a CTES system to [...]

China To Dominate Concentrated Solar Power Revival in Long Term

Concentrated Solar Power is the technology which uses mirrors to concentrate the sun’s energy to drive traditional steam turbines or engines that create electricity. The thermal energy concentrated in a CSP plant can be stored and used to produce electricity when it is needed, day or night. Concentrated solar [...]

World’s largest concentrated solar power project starts commercial ops in Abu Dhabi

Emirates Water and Electricity Company (EWEC) has announced that Noor Abu Dhabi, the world’s largest single solar project with a capacity of 1,177MW, has started commercial operations. The project will enable Abu Dhabi to increase its production of renewable energy and reduce the use of natural gas in electricity generation, [...]

Concentrated Solar Power Quietly Makes a Comeback

CSP’s costs are dropping as the market gains steam in the Middle East and China. Can this once-promising technology regain its mojo? Concentrated solar power (CSP), a renewable energy technology that has more or less dropped off the radar in the U.S., is quietly becoming [...]

US turbine leap boosts prospects for smaller Concentrated Solar Power plants

Tests at the world's highest-temperature sCO2 turbine indicate lower costs and faster ramping will make even smaller Concentrated Solar Power plants competitive, U.S. researchers told New Energy Update. Engineers at General Electric (GE) and the Southwest Research Institute (SWRI) recently completed testing of the world's highest temperature supercritical carbon dioxide [...]

Full capacity test a success for concentrated solar power plant in China

The country's first 100-megawatt molten salt concentrating solar thermal power plant in Dunhuang, Northwest China's Gansu province, has successfully generated power while operating at full capacity. Nearly 20 hours of operating records show the systems at the concentrated solar power plant have been normal and stable. The facility also [...]

Concentrated Solar Power increasing cumulative global capacity more than 11% to just under 5.5 GW in 2018

An estimated 550 MW of concentrating solar thermal power (CSP) came online in 2018, increasing cumulative global capacity more than 11% to just under 5.5 GW. CSP is also known as solar thermal electricity (STE). This annual increase represents the largest gain since 2014, and it occurred despite delays [...]

Azelio in collaboration for verification of its energy storage technology also in Sweden

In addition to the planned verification in Morocco at the end of 2019, Azelio is now initiating a collaboration with the Swedish Glava Energy Center (glavaenergycenter.se) for verification of its technology also in Sweden. The collaboration enables tests close to the company's development and in system together with other renewable [...]
