Concentrated Solar Power the way forward for is Australia despite hiccups

As the world looks to Germany as a shining example of how to shift away from polluting coal power, a Queensland-based nuclear expert says solar thermal power is the way forward for Australia. Paul Wilson, a nuclear engineer with almost five decades' experience, told ABC Radio Brisbane's Steve Austin he [...]

Why thinking small could help reignite the concentrated solar power sector

Concentrated solar power accounts for only a fraction of the overall green energy market, but recent research suggests smaller-scale designs could help revitalise interest in the sector. We talk to Luis Crespo, president of Protermosolar, Spain's solar thermal electricity association. With demand for clean, affordable energy spiking around the world, [...]

Rensselaer team develops effective concentrated solar power plant using affordable, accessible resources

Partha Dutta, a professor of electrical, computer, and systems engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, envisions a not-so-distant future where even the most remote parts of the world would have access to clean and renewable energy. His vision wouldn’t require a large power grid or expensive technology. Instead, he believes it [...]

How Australia could have already transitioned to 100% renewable energy

Released in 2010, The Zero Carbon Australia 2020 Stationary Energy Plan (ZCA2020) — a joint collaboration between Beyond Zero Emissions and the University of Melbourne Energy Research Institute — set out to demonstrate that Australia’s economy could be powered by renewable energy within a decade. The first report of its [...]

Abengoa eyes Concentrated Solar Power storage role at climate-hit coal plants

Concentrated Solar Power and molten salt technology could help coal-fired generators decarbonize without closing sites, but price support will be needed, experts told New Energy Update. While many CSP developers are seeking to directly compete with coal-fired power generation, a small group of players see opportunities in working with coal plant [...]
