SolarPACES to Help Optimize Chile’s Energy Grid

A new computational tool will be used by international researchers at SolarPACES to calculate the best technology mix of generation resources to most cost-effectively cover Chile’s load curve. The modeling tool was initially developed at Aachen University, in response to a request from the German Academy of Sciences, to see [...]

South Africa’s Concentrated Solar Power future rests on grid, policy solutions

South Africa CSP developers must work closely with state power utility Eskom to develop co-funding models for grid connections that will spur development in a market held back by weak state finances and uncertain capacity targets. South Africa has seen a rapid expansion in renewable energy capacity since it launched [...]

Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) thermal storage to offer grid stability in South Africa

Concentrated solar power (CSP) in conjunction with thermal storage could provide South Africa with grid stability during peak periods when electricity was most needed.

2013 completions of large concentrated solar power (CSP) plants mark technology gains

Several large, new concentrated solar power (CSP) plants are expected to begin commercial operation by the end of 2013, more than doubling the solar thermal generating capacity in the United States.

Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) With Storage Can Benefit the Grid

The evidence is piling up that when the real value of energy is considered, electricity generated from concentrating solar power (CSP) plants with storage capability outperforms solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind power.

Do Utilities Know the Real Value of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)?

For CSP (Concentrating Solar Power) and PV (photovoltaic) solar to gain utilities’ favor, the utilities that would obtain power from them must accurately value them.
