SOME ASPECTS OF THIS TECHNOLOGY SO THE COMPANY BETS [...]

Concentrated Solar Power Sparks Jobs, Technology, Investment in Morocco

Concentrated Solar Power, CSP, is huge in Morocco. Literally, it’s huge. Panels almost the size of tennis courts stretch across acres of desert at the 4 Noor plants in Ouarzazate, providing enough power to light up Marrakesh at night. Learn how it’s done, what it means to the Moroccan economy [...]

CSIRO sells concentrated solar power technology to China

Australia's solar heliostat technology will be used for concentrating solar thermal (CST) electricity generation in China.In continued emphasis on mitigation and adaptation, CSIRO has partnered with Chinese company Thermal Focus, following China's announcement to produce 1.4 GW of CST by 2018, and 5 GW by 2020. This would double the [...]

Understanding Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) technology

Among various solar energy technologies, one is referred to as concentrated solar power, or concentrating solar power. The acronym CSP applies to either. Worldwide CSP systems generate solar power by using mirrors or lenses to concentrate a large area of sunlight, or solar thermal energy, onto a small area. The concentrated heat is [...]

Lark Energy nets patent for new concentrated solar power technology

Lark Energy has secured a UK patent for a new renewable solar thermal technology to create steam for industrial processes. The technology uses a Fresnel lens to concentrate solar irradiation, which in turn heats tubes containing water. The resulting steam is then collected for use in applications that would otherwise [...]
