Recently Luneng Haixi 50MW CSP molten salt Tower hybrid project in China called for tenders of EPC, and received 8 biddings from 8 Chinese companies. The lowest price was offered by Zhejiang SUPCON Solar Technology Co., Ltd. (shorted as SUPCON) as RMB 1.2 billion (about USD 180 million), among [...]

Assessment of Hybrid Concentrated Solar Power-Biomass Plant Generation Potential in Sahel: Case Study of Senegal

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is non-existent in Sahel. Such a situation arises from the high investment costs required by these energy infrastructures and from a lack of information on the identification of suitable sites to accommodate them. Conversely, CSP-biomass plants due to lower investment may be an option for [...]

Saudi Arabian hybrid solar-gas plants produce world cheapest Concentrated Solar Power

Under the management of Saudi Electricity Company (SEC), Saudi is planning its first ISCC project combined with CSP---Duba 1 ISCC power station. It will be 50 MW solar parabolic trough of the plant's total 605 MW of capacity. The other ISCC project, 1,390 MW Waad Al Shamal plant with 50 [...]

Hybrid Microgrid in Italy to Include Concentrated Solar Power

Development is underway on the Italian island of Sardinia of a 1.2 MW hybrid microgrid that incorporates concentrating solar power (CSP), a diversion from the more common use of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels in microgrids. CSP condenses the sun’s rays into a small area, typically through use of mirrors or [...]

Hybrid power plant combines 3 clean energy sources in one

Champagne and strawberries, chocolate and peanut butter, geothermal and solar energy -- some things just go nicely together. Enel Green Power North America’s Stillwater plant, outside the desert town of Fallon, Nevada, came online in 2009 as a conventional geothermal plant and later added solar panels. After adding concentrating solar [...]

Hybrid Concentrated Solar Power plant design put to the test

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) has launched verification testing of the sunlight and thermal energy collecting performance of a unique solar thermal power system at dedicated facilities newly completed within its Yokohama Works. The testing will be conducted through March 2017 under contract from the Ministry of the Environment [...]

Morocco’s Noor hybrid projects extend the reach of Concentrated Solar Power

Morocco is following in Chile’s footsteps with two new solar hybrid complexes that will maximize synergies and optimize the cost per kilowatt hour. The first of these independent power projects, Noor Midelt, is envisioned as a solar power complex with a total installed capacity of 400 MW, utilizing 80–85% CSP [...]
