HelioControl Project Completed: Determination and control of aim points for heliostat fields in operation

Among concentrated solar power plants, solar tower systems are considered to have the greatest potential in terms of efficiency and cost reduction. In particular, costs can be saved on mirrors (heliostats), which account for between 30 and 40 percent of the investment. Frequent calibration or control of the heliostat [...]

Concentrated Solar Power towers’ impact on birdlife lower than expected

A study conducted by Stellenbosch University’s Faculty of AgriSciences has found that the 50 MW Khi Solar One Concentrated Solar Power facility, near Upington, is impacting on the surrounding bird life, but not to the extent expected. It is also possible to reduce the impact that concentrating solar power (CSP) [...]

High Temparature concentrated solar power plan with particle receiver and direct thermal storage

Clean solar energy with storage can help Europe reduce emissions and deliver a secure and cost-effective electricity supply. EU-funded research suggests that fluidised crystal particles trump molten salts as the heat transfer and storage medium. © Gilles Flamant Current state of the art concentrated solar power (CSP) plants use central [...]

Delingha: A Leap for Molten Salt Tower Concentrated Solar Power Technology

The 50-MW Delingha concentrated solar power tower plant located on the high-altitude Tibetan Plateau in China was developed, built, and continues to be refined by a company dedicated to solar tower technology research. China, a country that has added more than 200 GW of solar photovoltaic capacity over the last [...]

How Concentrated Solar Power Works: Tower, Trough, Fresnel or Dish

All concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies use a mirror configuration to concentrate the sun’s light energy onto a receiver and convert it into heat. The heat can then be used to create steam to drive a turbine to produce electrical power or used as industrial process heat. Concentrating solar power [...]

Concentrated Solar Power builders modify tower storage to combat heat swings

Global learnings on the impact of 'transient' risks on Concentrated Solar Power tower systems are driving improved storage tank piping and all-welding techniques, experts told New Energy Update. In a bid to accelerate deployment, the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) published June 12 the world's first best practices [...]
