Why Smaller Might Be Better for Concentrated Solar Power

Despite its big potential, concentrated solar power remains one of the most expensive mainstream options for generating renewable power. Rather than trying to catch up through technological breakthroughs, however, the CSP industry should turn to lower-hanging fruit. That's the view of Luis Crespo, president of Protermosolar, Spain's solar thermal electricity [...]

The Concentrated Solar Power triggers its production in Spain

Although installed capacity has been stagnant since 2013, Spain remains at the forefront of the world in the Concentrated Solar Power sector. In addition, the objectives for 2030 provide for the update of new GW and a resurgence of this technology, which is emerging as the best complement for photovoltaics. [...]

Concentrated Solar Power, renewable and storage, by Luis Crespo (Protermosolar)

Who has said that renewables will always need the support of fossil or nuclear technologies to provide the supply? It is true that the cheapest and most widespread technologies in Spain, such as wind energy and photovoltaic, do not have storage in centralized facilities (wind farms and photovoltaic plants) [...]

The concentrated solar power and electrical storage in Spain

In Spain there are 18 concentrated solar thermal power plants with storage, 17 of which are 50 MW and have a storage capacity of 7.5 hours at nominal power; another, of 20 MW, has a storage of 15 hours. In total, the equivalent electrical storage capacity is 6,675 MWh with [...]

Solar thermal power plants already offer below 6 cents per kWh.  CSP Today, with the collaboration of Protermosolar and ESTELA, organizes the XI International Summit of Thermoelectric Solar Concentration, an event of the concentrated solar power sector, which takes place in Seville today and tomorrow. The president of Protermosolar and [...]

Concentrated Solar Power status around the world

There are two types of renewables, someone's are - apparently - cheaper but non-dispatchable, others are - apparently - more expensive but dispatchable, such as Solar Thermal Electricity STE/CSP. Achieving a CO2-free power system will be only possible with a large share of dispatchable renewables. The undisputable arguments for [...]
