GE and Germany's KGAL are equity investors in the 50-megawatt concentrated solar energy project, being developed by Spanish construction group ACS.
Twelve groups of companies, which also include Alstom SA and Spain’s SENER Ingenería y Sistemas S.A., will be invited to participate in the tender before the end of this year.
eSolar, a developer of modular, scalable concentrating solar thermal power technology, announced that in addition to its licensing agreement with GE Energy, GE has closed a strategic investment in the company.
Areva and Alstom, both of France, and Germany's Siemens have made similar investments over the past two years, and each have a hybrid concentrated solar-gas plant offering.
Challenges that once thwarted widespread solar thermal power generation — including cost, speed of deployment, and environmental sustainability — have now been met. eSolar delivers a new blueprint for solar energy in Cal
eSolar’s power plant technology uses small, flat, pre-fabricated mirrors called heliostats to track the sun and reflect its heat to a tower-mounted receiver.
